Are there any DC are bees with recommendations for a recpetion site less than 30 minutes from Georgetown University that will hold 150 and be fairly reasonable? Our budget for the reception (food, site, rentals) is $10,000 and I feel like it is way too low to get what we want. Any suggestions are welcome, but it will be a Saturday evening wedding in July, so prices will be tough. We are open to a restaurant or any type of venue.

I’m looking for a Saturday afternoon reception in NOVa with about the same budget and I haven’t found much luck.
What kind of alcohol package are you hoping to have? If I could cut alcohol we could find a place within out budget (although then my irish family members wouldn’t come…)

I was going to suggest Top of the Town in Arlington, but I think their rental fee alone is $5,000… It does come with the tables, chivari chairs, and dance floor already, though, so you’d really just need to figure out food.
Sorry I can’t be of more help!

2941 restaurant, falls church, va is a good place you should check it out but your budget is a little low. Usually most places the cost per person is $100 per person.
Just the meal is $75 per person at 2941 restaurant but including everything (drinks, dance floor, sound system, hors d’oerves etc…) depending what you choose is about above AT LEAST $100 per person
So you need a budget of least of $15,000 to accomodate 150 guests at $100 per person and that is stretching.

What we are most likely doing is Clarendon Ballroom. We realized our budget wasn’t reasonable and have increased it by quite a bit.

Did you check with the hotel ballrooms at Georgetown yet? The office is in Leavey Center, right behind the check in desk. The food is fantastic. Think Faculty Club fare with better appetizers.
