My DH's 40th birthday is in May, and he has been obsessed with the idea of having a certain band play for ages. We have an idea of how much that would cost, and are looking into how much a venue would cost to hold the party.
I think we need to provide alcohol/drinks, but it is turning into a crazy expensive party, so DH thinks that we might get away with just providing the entertainment and people can buy their own drinks. That would be tacky, right?
