I’ve had both.

Country Clubs, Hotels, Wedding Banquet Halls etc are nice in that a lot of things are included / in place

Community Halls mean you have to do a lot more… and consider more things… Tables, Chairs, Caterer (Kitchen Needs if there is a Kitchen at all), Linens, Dishware & Cutlery, Barware, Decor, DJ, Speaker Systems, Lighting, Draping etc.

The list can be a long, and the extras do add up.

Altho in most instances it still works out to be cheaper than a fancier venue… especially so in regards to liquor service I’ve found (Booze being a BIG issue in Canada, in so much as we have some pretty antiquated laws on Licensing etc.  Cannot do BYOB here at most Wedding Venues, but a Community Hall is the next best thing cause their prices are typically a lot lower per pour)

Hope this helps,

We aren’t renting a fire hall, but we are renting a community building, its basically just a decent sized brick building.

For us, it was the right price.. we wanted something where we could do our own alcohol bar, bring in our own caterer, and set up the day before [as well as clean up the day after].

We are doing quite a bit to decorate it up.
