Where To Find Your Cheap Wedding Venues



By Suzanne Daykin

Cheap wedding venues are hard to find when you are desperately trying to secure a date and a perfect location. It's almost as if they are being kept secret, until now!

Recently I was involved in working with community and social clubs and I was amazed at the facilities they have for functions that are under utilised and the prices that they charge. It is almost as if they have been stuck in a time warp and have almost no idea the gold mine they are sitting on. Some clubs are run with no intention to make a profit, costs have to be covered for them to stay in business but their main aim is to be a social club for members. Check out all the social clubs, working men's clubs, sports clubs and community clubs in your area, use your yellow pages, ask your friends and families. Do not be put off by the fact that they are members clubs, most of the clubs will be crying out for new members. You will probably need to join the club to use the venue, but again you will be amazed at the prices that are charged, we are talking a few pounds not hundreds! I have visited beautiful clubs in old houses with stunning grounds and also some in a horrible state. The point is have a look, you could surprise yourself.

Local authority venues are worth looking at, you can get a list from your registery office. They are getting smart to weddings and functions so it is unlikely you will get a great bargain but you might find they are the cheapest venue in town and they often have great locations.

Community and church halls are normally pretty basic but they often have a kitchen and if you can get a team together you could easily decorate your venue the day before. I recently was emailed a great decoration idea where the bride and groom used big branches and cemented them into buckets, the whole thing was sprayed silver and then decorations hung to the branches. They had an avenue of trees in their hall!

If you live in an area where there are a summer camps, retreats, universities, colleges, or schools, (Let's face it I think we all live close to at least one of those!) find out if they hire the venue during holidays or off season. All the facilities will be there and you are likely to find great cheap wedding venues.

In the US it is possible to have your wedding ceremony and reception in a State Park, the prices that I have seen quoted for hiring cheap wedding venues in the park are very cheap. You would also have beautiful views, great places for children to play and lots of spare money!

If you are getting married quickly then it is worth checking prices and availibility of big venues in your area, they should give you a good deal as it is unlikely they will sell the space with a short lead in.

The best tip is to think outside the box, look at your town with new eyes and anywhere that has the space to hold the numbers that you want.
