Wedding Reception Venues on a Budget?

My partner and I are planning to get married in October. We are having a small wedding. Our guest list is 35-45 people. We are looking for a nice and inexpensive place to hold our reception. If any one can help please get back to me.


Also if anyone knows of someone that makes cakes I would like to have them make our cake instead of a bakery.

First off, Congratulations! Now, to answer your question. You didn't say where you were so this is going to be a general answer.

Often times, you can find a room at the local library that you can reserve or check out. Sometimes a local place like we have here in Salem called The Mill where you can sometimes rent rooms. If the place you live is warm, October isn't too cold to have it in a park. If it is, there are often non-denominational venue that rent out to Bar Mitzvas, Anniversary parties, and the like.


A lot of times, a nicer hotel might run a special in the off season and you can go there. Other options are do you have a friend who has a nice big backyard and might do it in their home?
I would google wedding venues like I did and see where that gets you.
Have a lovely ceremony and please let us share a photo?

Hello & Congratulations! I would suggest trying church's for the rental of their basements & tell them someone is willing to clean up afterward & put tables & chairs back.

Or you could have it at a friends or relatives house or outside in a yard or State Park - depending on how you plan to have it & the weather conditions. Nights of Columbos or Italian -American Clubs or Elks Lodges & the like also rent out space. I don't know about the price; but you have nothing to loose by enquiring. Good Luck & God Bless Your Union. : )
