I am in the beginning stages of planning a wedding reception in Istanbul for June of 2015. However, I will be in Istanbul next month and would like to narrow down some venue choices to look at while I am there as I will not have another chance to see places in person before the wedding. I would like to do a cocktail reception only, with drinks and appetizers for about 90 people. I am on a tight budget (I would love to find a place for around 60TL per person), but I am not very picky about the place, ideally it would be near bosphorus, or at least on the european side of the city. These things I am willing to compromise on as well if the place fits our style and budget. We will be having the ceremony at the registry office and we are not that interested in having room to dance. Just a nice place to throw a cocktail party so that we can mingle with our guests is all we care about. Thanks in advance for your input!!
