Planning a wedding on a very tight budget in the next month or two! Looking for a venue in Massachusetts ( preferably southeastern ) that will allow us to bring in our own food. Any suggestions?

Hi SJHMason,
If you are planning an afternoon wedding in the early fall think about a state park. The setting can be beautiful. with all the fall foliage. Of course, you can always bring food to a park. just be sure there is a shelter in case it rains. If you are a bit flexible on location, Colt State Park in Bristol RI has a beautiful outdoor setting and is right on the ocean. Lots of people come to the park to take wedding photos in their limos. They have an outdoor chapel. Lots of people get married there too. You could also check on summer camps which might be able to rent space off season.
You might also check on private schools, community centers,civic organizations, religious institutions, etc. for indoor venues that would probably be OK with your bringing in your own food. I recently attended a wedding at Curtis farm in Willton NH. It was a beautiful setting. I think it is probably much more expensive than the parks or schools though.

Hi. We just booked my daughter's wedding & reception at the local Elk's club. It was $500 to rent (set-up on Friday, wedding and reception on Saturday until midnight, so we basically get it for two days.) They allowed us to bring in our own food, which in the long run saves TONS of money. We were going to make the food ourselves, but the kids decided on KFC to do the catering. At only $3.51 per plate, we are saving about $2,000 (going through another club was $200 to rent for four hours, but we had to use their caterer at $18 per plate. NOT worth it!)
Best of luck!

Elk's is good.
Also try a Veteran of War Hall, WYCA/WMCA, Knights of Columbus, a community center and perhaps a church in your area has an outdoor or party/rec room that you could convert.

Good luck!

Im getting married in taylor, mi on sept 8 and I need a place that I can bring my own food. Please respond?
Guest January 11, 2012
If your in Palm Beach County then the Grand Ballroom is the place you want to use. You can shop your own caterers or just do the food yourself. They will give you use of thier kitchen and you can even do your own bar service as long as your giving it away. Gorgeous place.
