Have you tried any B&Bs? They can usually accomodate small groups. Sometimes I think planning a smaller wedding (we’re having <50 people) is tougher than a huge one!! Good luck!!

@xlsm:  Great idea.

Also I would stop looking at traditional venues and start looking at restaurants, breweries, very small wineries. 

Traditional venues will want more people to make it worth their while.

I’m getting married at a Scottish Rite facility. Might try that, or see if there are any nicer VFW, etc halls around.

“Wedding venues” are all going to want you to have a big number of guests because ridiculous minimums is how they make their money. So if I were you, I’d steer clear of any of the all-inclusive places. It’s almost always cheaper to go a la carte anyway, even if you do have a huge wedding.

We are having ~27 people at our wedding and are getting married on a Thursday night. Our ceremony location had a minimum for Friday-Sundays, but not on Thursday. The date doesn’t bother our families since they were going to take a few days off anyways. We are getting married in a butterfly house and then going to one of the best steakhouses in Dallas. We are using their private room and they only have a $2k food minimum, no room rentals like some other restaurants wanted.

@Chunkyswifey143:  i know how frustrating this can be, i am planning a wedding for 20 guests. It took me a while to find something too because every place had a minimum guest count or minimum amount of money but we decided on the state capitol building (it has beautiful architecture) and a reception at a nice restaurant. 

 

You could always look for parks vineyards, farms, etc.

 

think outside the box.
