Where are you looking in CT?  I’m in the middle of planning my wedding for 2015 and am looking in Central CT.  Current venue we are thinking about booking is Keeney Hall in Wethersfield CT.

Rental rate is $1600 for 4 hours, 300/hour there after.  Curfew is 11pm.  The only hall without a curfew we have found so far is the New England Carousel Museum but my other half says it’s too far, being in Bristol 🙁

SavesAnimals:  What other vendors have you booked or are you looking at? We’re just 5 weeks away from our wedding so all of the big stuff is done and now we’re just finalizing details. Happy to help/give advice. Also, I lived in Stamford for 7 years up until last year so I know the area pretty well if there’s anything you want to know.

Ralia1982:  

Do you mind sharing what venue you have booked in Fairfield County, I am looking in that area as well for a wedding next year about 160 people and looking to spend between 1500-2000 on a venue. Sounds like you found a great place!
