Hi!!!! Im so excited that I found this board. I am trying desparately to find 1930s-1950s venues in Southern California. All of my ideas (old theaters, old hotels, etc) are too pricey. I would like to keep the venue rental under $3000 if possible. I do not want to spend more than about $6000 total on my wedding and am willing to do as much DIY as possible. ANy ideas? Thanks SOOO much!

Welcome to the hive!!!
Check out the Ebell of Los Angeles.
It’s a beautiful historic venue, built in the late 1920’s. Lots of original detail, and beautiful ballroom! You can get a good deal if you have your wedding during the week.
Also, check out some venues in Palm Springs. Lots of 50’s inspired retro places. You could rent a house for a day and bring in your own caterer, alcohol, etc… Rental prices for the weekend are high, but if you are willing do a Thurs or Fri you can get a better deal. Hotels and country clubs are going to have a high minimum for a sat or sun evening.
Good luck and congrats!
