Coco1185:  Can you look in a less expensive nearby area? Cut down the guest list? Rent space in a large restaurant? Or firehall?

I’m getting married in Ohio too and had a rough time finding a venue! Looking outside of Cleveland is going to be your best bet.

Coco1185:  I would MOVE outside of downtown for a more affordable reception venue.  I am getting married (this weekend) on the westside of Cleveland.  We orginally wanted a hotel, so I thought it would be MOST fun to have it in a downtown hotel ballroom, etc.  Well, those were wayyyy out of our price range.  I then ended up looking into other area cities, with the same chain hotels, and although they were ‘cheaper’, they were still over budget.  We ended up settling on something completely different, a ballroom on a golf course, but we could not be happier!  The price is GREAT (for what you get), the venue is beautiful (in my opinion), and it is a spot a lot of our guests (all 215 of them) – if not, MOST – have never been too before.  If you want more information, then let me know.  Certainly, if nothing else, let me know general logisitics on ‘outside the city’ you may be willing to look:  East, West or South?!  Thanks!

Coco1185:  have you looked at Windows on the River?  IIRC it was $80pp for food, alcohol and cake, and the space was GORGEOUS!  We would have had our wedding there but it was booked for our desired date:/

Did you try The Crawford Auto Museum or the Courthouse downtown? Those venues allow you to use your own caterer and that might help to save costs.
