We had someone lined up to host our wedding at their home but they are kind of backing out on us and I am running out of options but to post pone the wedding. I’m a young bride looking for an affordable outdoor/barn/garden wedding venue that is inexpensive. Planning for 150-200 people, if tables, chairs, catering&cake etc is included I could do around 10,000-11,000$ for the reception/ceremony. Photographer, DJ, invites, and flowers etc are separate from that budget. OR a rental fee of 1,000$ or less – I can afford to rent tents, tables, chairs, etc separate. Any info helps!! Looking for anywhere within an hour of West Chester, PA or around Newark, DE.

Look into Oakbourne mansion in Westtown. I don’t remember the exact rental rates but I know it was pretty cheap to rent the grounds and you could put a tent up.
Another idea is the Schuylkill Nature Center.
Hope some of that is helpful!

Not super rustic but Penn Oak Golf Club had some good deals Especially if you had an afternoon wedding

Try DE first. The no sales tax really helps.

We are paying around that for our venue (cake, chairs, food, open bar on a saturday) in Stroudsburg PA. Not sure if a bit less than two hours away would be too far though…

westindixie: Ill pm you the name not sure if I can post names? But, they have 5 different wedding location choices (ceremony + reception) includes chairs/linens/etc, has outdoor areas + plan b’s (for rain), includes cocktail hour (hour of hors d’oeuvres) food and wedding cake it was 1,200 for our ceremony fee (up to 150 people) and then the rest is based on food/drinks per person (we went with the most expensive options but you can pick from i think 5 different prices per person for food and then tab or open bar, range of 55-80 per person for the food I think depending on choices).
