I can’t think of anything in Somerset County for that price. What kind of venue are you looking for? The lowest price venue I found while we are searching was the Windsor Ballroom at the Holiday Inn in West Windsor. I think that was around $7500 for 125 people. However, we were only looking for locations at hotels. Have you tried the Bridgewater Manor? I hear their prices are affordable. Or Pheasants Landing in Hillsborough?

 

Good luck!

You’re welcome. Having it at a restaurant definitely helps the price. If possible, I would look further south, it may be a little less expensive. If his parents aren’t already helping pay, I would ask them to. It’s a pretty tall order to find a place in a relatively expensive area like Somerset County in your price range for that many people. Maybe your future in-laws could kick in a few thousand to help you out and keep the guest list as is. If you show them pricing that you get, maybe that will give them some perspective. I understand the family drama- it really sucks. Good luck! I’ll let you know if I think of other places.

Not sure if Paramus is too far, but Biagio’s does weddings and should be able to accommodate a group that size. Not sure about price, though.

 

Good luck!

Long time lurker..made a user name just for this.  Here is my venue in Sandy Hook, NJ.  The view is spectacular, and the venue is affordable.  It is a more casual vibe, but that is what I am going for.

I don’t know if you’re considering Linden at all, but I just discovered a restaurant called Amici Ristoranti that looks like it might be within your budget.  According to their website, they have a “formal package” for like $40pp, including open bar and cake, though I believe the cocktail hour is extra. Worth taking a look.

Hope this helps!

@nyasia.bowles: 

are you getting married this year. I am having a huge issue finding a venue that is in my budget. I had picked oct 21, 2012 which is a sunday and the prices are way out of my budget. I am planning on having about 130 people at my wedding and my entire budget if I can should be 10k for everything. I contacted the windsor ballroom and they are not moving on their price at all.
