Hello everyone! I am in great need of help. We have moved our wedding once again due to the high price of weddings (sad face), we are now having it in 2012, but i still am having so much trouble finding a venue that i like and can actually afford. If any one knows of any outdoor venues in the sacramento area, even in placer county would be fine, please let me know. I am trying to have a vintage feel type of outdoor wedding, i would really only like to spend up to $6,000 on everything total. We are only having up to 40 guests, if that. Any information would be very helpful,

i looked around sac before and it can be hard finding a place w/ a small guest count.

http://www.flowerfarminn.com/ Loomis. looks like a wedding venue to me. (there was another B&B I was looking for in Loomis (Emma’s) that I guess closed down??? – it was so perfect w/ a beautiful view. If you can find it, I’d have it there.)

You can also just start visiting city/county rec areas if you want trully outdoors. I know the flower gardens in Sac are popular.

I got married at Granite Bay Golf Club. They were AMAZING! The food, the service and the coordinator were awesome. They worked with me a lot too as far as price is concerned and I got a great deal. Hopefully for 40 guests they can work something out for you as well. 🙂

I just emailed Turkey Creek Golf Course in Lincoln and it sounds REALLY reasonable. I have not checked it out in person though. Here is the response email from the food/bevverage director with some pricing info:
Thanks for getting back to me. We have an all inclusive price on all our weddings and private events. The cost is $33.00 per person and that includes ceremony location and chairs, room rental, linen, setup, food, cake cutting/serving, cleanup, tax and gratuity. The only extra charge would be for a dance floor if you want one, it would be $200.00 for the setup. As for the alcohol, you can set as much of a limit as you like, we do have a full bar so if you want to include that in the tab your more than welcome. If you want to do appetizers only, it is $4.00 per person per appetizer. If you want appetizers with dinner buffet it is $3.00 per person per appetizer. I will send you a menu, on the last page you will find the cost and all that is included. We are the most reasonably priced golf course venue in the area.

Sounds like a great deal! The menu they have published on their webpage states that appetizers are $2 pp with the $33 dinner buffet…so you might want to bring that up in reference to thier $3 offer
