Cheap Reception Venues
I would like a pretty space for about 125 people and great food for under $9,000. Everything I've found so far has been $20,000; that is more than my entire wedding budget.

Topic:
Orlando fl wedding <3
I am looking to get married on 5-14-2016.
All I really need is the reception place and big enough for 150-200 guest.
I'm hoping for a hotel to at least have a room for the night.
I want everything to be outside vendors.
I'm getting married in a catholic church so no need for a ceremony.

I want a simple but nice wedding that I can look back on and say it was perfect and not be sad over how much money we spent just for our guest. I see why my family keeps telling me to just get married and spend the money for a nice honeymoon.
I know their right but me and my fiancee want a wedding more than anything. Creating beautiful memories to cherish.

Please if anyone has any information for what I'm requesting help on, let me know I would appreciate it.
Thank you
Monica*♡*

During its first three years, this elegant property received more five-star reviews on Trip Advisor than ANY luxury hotel in the entire state of Kentucky. It is currently a 2015 Trip Advisor Hall of Fame Awardee. Described one reviewer, “Better than Ritz Carlton…been to many resorts but this is much better. Two thumbs up.” Another world traveler said they enjoyed it better than the estimated 2,000 hotels they’ve stayed at.
We wanted to share a special little secret with you....
Just 45 minutes from the hub-bub of corporate Louisville, we have the perfect getaway-destination for your corporate retreats, meetings, events, and more. You can make those stale hotel rooms and garish, fluorescent-bulb meeting rooms a thing of the past!
Situated on 15 pastoral country acres in Brandenburg, KY, we offer up “The Barn on the Farm” event center. Elegant chandeliers contrast with Amish-hewn lumber, for an eclectic, country ambiance that accommodates up to 100. Privacy, rave-reviewed catering, and professional AV-support are a given here for your meetings, seminars and events. www.TheBarnOnTheFarm.com
To host smaller team meetings; guest speakers or VIPs - or simply reward your employees - we have the “Southern Grace Bed and Breakfast.” Luxury-appointed rooms and bedding; 23-foot chandelier-ceilings; a sparkling, turquoise pool; and more, await you. Best yet, are the farm-fresh, country breakfasts made to order your-way, at-your-time every morning. www.southerngracebb.com
If not for a corporate booking, a stay at the Southern Grace would be an ideal reward or present for valued employees. We offer gift certificates, both traditional and email, for your gift gifting this holiday season. We also offer extended-stay discounts for your corporate travel needs. The Southern Grace is a 2015 Trip Advisor Hall of Fame awardee, ranking higher in its first three years than ANY luxury hotel in the state of Kentucky during that same period. We invite you to check out our 5-star reviews at Trip Advisor.
We also understand that team-building is a pertinent function of many corporate get-ways, and nearby there are several opportunities for that. Only 15 minutes from the property are the Squire Boone Caverns, with zip-lining and cave exploring. Fishing, trail-hiking, and nature also abound nearby at the Otter Creek State Park, where miles and miles of trails await...
We're here to get you out of the hub-drub with fresh country air; room to relax, think and innovate; and reward your hard work. Contact us to discuss how we can best help your businesses' endeavors, needs and goals.

Sincerely, Proprietors David and Theresa Padgett

Party Room Rental
If you're looking for an intimate wedding venue just south of Portland, OR that is very affordable, has a garden to have the ceremony in and a reception hall you absolutely must look into Dancing Deer Mountain. The place is like something from a storybook, especially with the owners being so sweet and helpful.

I think being honest with your vendors and letting them know you are working on a smaller budget should get you some discount favors!
Best of Luck!
What type of Hotels do you book for your incoming guest, do you select a 5* hotel (which will probably turn guest away from attending due to high cost) or a small affordable hotel that is within everyone's budget? I made arrangements at the four seasons and the microtel inn and it seems as if my guest preferred the microtel inn more than the 4 season,,,,,, who would had thought???? SHould you give them several choices?

Le Foret is a contemporary New Orleans restaurant offering a menu featuring strong French technique and seasonal flavors. The food and the service work in tandem to bring a unique New Orleans sensibility to the tradition of haute cuisine. Housed in a newly renovated, historic Central Business District building, Le Foret makes you feel relaxed in a truly indulgent setting.

With our private events, we pride ourselves in delivering food as delicious and service as expert as in our main dining room. The chef will gladly work on a special menu for your event that meets your specific needs.

Visit www.leforetneworleans.com for more information or contact us at (504) 553-6738 or email sales@leforetneworleans.com for event capacities, menus, and availability.
