Inexpensive Wedding Site in Anne Arundel County Maryland?

I live just outside of Annapolis and need a place to hold the wedding and reception. The wedding is in 2 years and I have a budget of preferably under $3000 but no more than $5000. It's not like money laying around to spend so I have to save up. I want to be able to have drinking there as well, so churches are out of the question.


I did try the local American Legion and the price was about right so it may be held there. But I want other places I can look over at. I have a party of no more than 100 people so the facility must accommodate that. As far as food it can be prepared by the site or I can bring my own. I prefer on site with people to clean up lol.

My sister and I didn't want the usual kind of reception so this is what we did. She had her reception in a mansion. Being in a college town, the college owned several mansion size homes that they used for their own receptions/parties. You may want to contact a college near you and see if they will rent out. She also used their catering, hired a piano player and had a beautiful, romantic reception. The guests could walk around the lovely home and mingle instead of being stuck in a chair.


I had my reception in an old downtown business building. The businesses were located around the perimeter of the building and the inner part was like a big empty room opened to the third floor. The reception was on a Saturday when the businesses were closed. I had it privately catered with organic food only, simple music, and tables that seated only four people. Both these places allowed alcohol. We also had our weddings early in the day (11:00 am and 2pm) which allowed for us to celebrate all day, our guests didn't get intoxicated (didn't have to worry about anyone driving home), no one had to get hotels rooms, and grandparents didn't have to leave early because they were too tired.

It's just another take on what you can do with a wedding. My husband and I went and had pictures taken at a beautiful park, opened our gifts back at my moms house with relatives around, and had reservations on a riverboat restaurant for dinner that night that we went with our wedding attire on and received drinks on the house. It was a wonderful, long day.

Try Quiet Waters Park. Their rates are about $1500 for several hours.
They have the information on the website.
