  • Small art galleries, libraries and community theaters sometimes offer reasonable rental rates ranging from $300 to $1,500.

What should be included:
  • Typically, the venue staff meet with the couple and allow visits to plan the logistics.
Additional costs:
  • For outdoor weddings, it is wise to make alternate arrangements in case of rain, which can mean renting a tent for about $300 to several thousand dollars, depending on the type of tent and number of guests.
  • Some venues charge extra for a wedding rehearsal.
Discounts:
  • Many locations offer substantially discounted rates during off-peak times such as weekday evenings or weekend afternoons. Some botanical gardens offer reduced rates in fall and winter.
  • Tip: Botanical gardens, museums and libraries sometimes offer facility rental discounts for members.
Shopping for a wedding ceremony venue:
  • It is important to begin shopping for a location very early.
  • TheKnot.com[2] offers lists of local ceremony and reception venues -- from hotels to museums to historical mansions.
  • BridalGuide.com[3] has a guide to choosing a ceremony location.
  • For couples who want to get married in an exotic locale within the United States or in a foreign country, Brides.com offers a planning guide for destination weddings.

Wedding reception
Amount: $850.00
Posted by: feel cheated in Milwaukee, WI.Posted: July 21st, 2015 08:07AM
Type: bar hallNumber of Guests: approximently
Location: Milwaukee
My daughter was charged 850.00 to rent a hall for her wedding reception. I have heard from others that they have paid only 250.00 to rent the same room, it dose not include
catering. I'm sure the owner made quite a bite over the bar from the guest. Can they really charge 600.00 less for people they know and like. Can that be considered discrimination?
