I attended a reception at a VFW here and it was fun. It was very casual and laid back but we had a great time! There was plenty of space for everyone and where we were there were picnic tables outside and because of the time of year a lot of people who wanted a quick break from the dancing and music went outside to sit for awhile before rejoining the party.

@ShabbyChicBee:  I’ve been to events at VFW’s before. It was more about the food and crowd than the scenery which was fine by me.

I think logistically it would be better to have it at a VFW or comparable recreation center- things like parking, restrooms, etc.

I’ve been to events at our VFW and always had a good time.  They were definitely more casual than other black tie events, but I think you have a good attitude about your wedding–the place isn’t important so long as you’re married!

My brother and SIL had their reception at an American Legion (very similar to/same idea as a VFH).  It was really nice! They were able to customize it and dress it up to their liking. I went with my SIL and her mom and sister the day before the wedding and helped set up the decorations. There was plenty of space to dance, the buffet dinner was simple and had something for everyone, and the alcoholic beverages were very inexpensive compared to other venues.
