Manhattan/Westchester value wedding
Hello all. My fiance and I are looking for ideas on where to hold a wedding ceremony and reception for 80-100 people at a reasonable price. We're hopeful to keep the cost around $100 per person and we assume that a restaurant would be the best way to pull this off.
An outdoor space would be nice to hold the ceremony and we're open to a Friday or Saturday night in Manhattan or Westchester.
thanks in advance for any ideas.
If you are willing to be VERY dyi, you could try a community garden or other small park space. I know the garden across from my apartment has hosted them in the past either for free or for a very small donation. I also know that they have done weddings in that beautiful little park behind the Jefferson Library in the West Village. It used to be cheap - not sure that's still the case. Of course that would mean getting food, chairs, music equipment, etc., independently, which might be more of a headache than you want. On the other hand, from a Chow perspective, that's way more cash to spend on food if the venue is basically free!
