My fiance and I are getting married at the end of August and are on a tight budget. We need somewhere to hold a ceremony and reception for 60 guests.
My dh and I rented our historic court house for 550.00 for our daughters wedding. It was very beautiful and had beautiful hardwood floors with a kitchen for her caterers. It had a big room plenty of room for table and chairs from the rental store and big tall windows which were perfect for pictures. She had a small stage where she placed and arch in front of her cake table. The tables were decorated simply with candle vases and she put clear marbles in it and put ribbon around the vase with her colors (lavender and pastel light green).
We used a family friend's condo recreation room. It was great, had a kitchen and everything. Best of all it was free. There was a $60 deposit which they return as long as no damage was done. A park was one of my other options. Many parks have indoor spaces, some even allow you to pitch a tent.
Check out your local community center, they are usually big enough to hold weddings and you could probably have the reception there as well.
Sometimes parks have facilities for rent & they are reasonable but booked up early so check into it soon. We were to a wedding last week where nobody had flowers except the bride & 3 bridesmaids bouquets. Reception hall was sparsely decorated by only using the church's tealights on the tables.
Our community club has a really nice, big room they rent out, and you can make your own decorations. Silver and any colour looks good. Flowers can be donated from friends' and neighbors' gardens; wedding bells, doves, and hearts, etc. Can be cut from large sheets of poster board from the dollar store. Dollar stores have 3-D decorations, bells, etc. You could also check with your local University. My nephew had his wedding in the University gym. A Justice of the Peace will perform the ceremony anywhere you want. My brother had his wedding in the Turf Club at our race track.
My mom works at a place called brookside center. Its a building you can rent for weddings, parties, etc. It is only 85 for 5 hours and has plenty of room with chairs and tables supplied for you. Since I live in Texas this specific place probably wouldn't work for you but it is through the Recreation center so check with your local center, they probably have something along the same lines and it helps save alot, especially since they supply chairs and tables and have a kitchen available for use.
