Budget Friendly Wedding Venues

TAGS: BRIDE-TO-BE, WEDDING VENUES

Tired of expensive, insensitive venues? I have other options for you!


Mr. Man and I were tired of getting the run-around from several different venues... venues that specialize in weddings and events.


Either our contacts were taking too long to get back to us, not getting back to us at all, or they just didn't offer appealing wedding packages. If we loved the venue, we hated the approved caterer's menu. If we loved the caterer, the venue (or our contact there) was lackluster.

I decided it was time to start back at square one. I'm not quite sure why I hadn't considered the following budget friendly and personal wedding venue options earlier on in the game, but nonetheless, I hope they'll help you on your venue hunt!
