I am new to the site and the process! I am beginning to look for venues in the Pittsburgh area. Needs to hold at least 200 people and I would like to keep it around 50pp give or take for the venue including the food and drinks. I would prefer a hotel venue or somewhere close to a hotel due to many out of town guests. I am open to different options and locations. Anywhere about an hour from the city in any direction would be fine as I have people coming from all over. Any help is greatly appreciated! ~Thank you!

most hotels in the area are $85 and up per person if you want an open bar (ours is right around $90 and that’s with a Friday night discount). your best bet may be a private venue that allows outside catering/byob but you’ll most likely have to pay a hall fee. A lot of area farms are renting out their barns now for weddings so you could look into that option. Also I’ve been to a few weddings at the SNPJ club in Imperial PA and had a blast. By no means is it a fancy upscale venue but when decorated it looks nice, its huge, the prices are great, and its close to Robinson PA which has major hotels (some of which will shuttle there), restaurants, and shopping. I would check any of those out.
