so what kind of wedding are you looking to have? I have been researching alot of rustic places, such as re-furbished barns and such. Or are you looking for a banquet hall? I must have emailed probably 50+ places about pricing because NO ONE puts it on their website..they don’t like to make it easy haha You have a pretty nice budget per person so i don’t think you’ll have a problem finding a nice place…but what kind of wedding were you going for and what area of pittsburgh were you thinking of?

We are having ours at the Crowne Plaza in Moon (kinda towards the airport).  They had a really good package that we found better than most, plus theyre doing a 15 million dollar rennovation over the winter, so it can only get better! 

Our package includes a 5 hour reception (4 hours open bar) However, you can add an hour if you’d like… They, along with most places, just close the bar for dinner.  It includes a champagne toast for all guests, a refresher suite for the bridal party, coffee station, a room for the bride and groom that night, discounted rooms for wedding guests, a cake though “cakes by tammy”, center pieces by Chris Puhlman, hors d’oeuvres, and dinner… the total price ends up being about $62.00 per person (give or take a few dollars, depending on what you choose for food)… dinner includes soup and salad, a vegetable, and a starch.

You also have the option to add stations (it’s kind of cute because they have a “pittsburgh station” with pierogies), upgrade to a more extensive bar package, add wine, a pasta course, etc…. they’re great to work with and take care of almost everything for you, so you have much less to worry about! 

Also, they set up everything for you… That way, when your wedding day comes, friends and family will not have to worry about getting there to tray cookies/tie bows on chair covers, or something else.  They can focus on your enjoying their time!

Goodluck and let me know if I can be of any help!

i did look into Bell’s Banquets and it is probably one of my favorites but it’s just too expensive for me. My fiance and I are paying for the wedding and we really wanted to keep the dinner $30 or under per person…and even that is pushing it.

But some good ideas for you..i would suggest the Sunset Room..it’s not the “typical” banquet hall..it’s beautiful and has some very nice little touches..it’s near elizabeth. Another good one is the the Edgewood country club. pretty much any country club is gorgeous…pittsburgh’s grand hall is also beautiful

Try emailing them.  I found most would send a price list when asked directly for it.  If they won’t do that, you can ask what the minimum expenditure is for the venue.  Take that number and divide it by your guest list number.

We looked at the Doubletree in Moon and it was really nice, they include everything you could want and it came out to around $50-$60 per person. We ended up going with a different venue but the Doubletree left a good impression.

We have a similar budget.

We booked Quicksilver Golf Club (roughly $50-60/person w/ food and alcohol).

Moon’s Crowne Plaza/Holiday Inn were also in the running for us, but booked on our date.

Others to consider: Mayernik Center (more rustic/woodsy) where it’s BYOB.  I’ve also known people who used The Great Hall (North Hills, also BYOB) and The Georgetown Center (towards Century III).  They’re all in the $50 and under range (approx).  

Thought of two more that are reasonably priced.. more towards the South Hills— St. Pamphilus http://www.ches-anthony.com/reception_st_pamphilus.html  and http://www.holycrossbanquethall.com/
