I just bought Oregon Bride the other day and that issue has lists of different venues.

 

My questions are, indoor or outdoor? What’s your budget? What’s your guest count? 🙂

Are you specifically looking for P-Town area? What’s your budget if you don’t mind me asking? Ceremony and reception indoors? My venue was The Inn at Diamond Woods. We did everything outside though, they do have an indoor option but I don’t know if 150 people would fit. Pics are in my recaps if you’re interested though. I will do some searching for you too 🙂

You could check out Urban Studio in the Pearl.  I don’t remember the cost! Definitely not a hotel look.

There are also a number of McMenamins venues that are really nice and are varied in style.

@ms.oregon.state: I actually got married a couple of weeks ago at the International Rose Tet Garden.  Our reception was at Brideport Brewery in the Pearl.

Before we decided on our venue, we were really stoked about McMenamins Grande Lodge (I’ve been to an awesome wedding at the Children’s Cottage there).  I have also been to a beautiful wedding at McMenamins Edgefield.  Our friends were married at the Troutdale House (also a nice indoor venue) but we all stayed at Edgefield for a few days which was close by and partied for a couple of days.

@ms.oregon.state: The only reason we didn’t have the wedding at McMenamins was because my mom was really against it.  But, I still think it is a lovely, very fun place to have a wedding!  At some of their larger venues, like Grand Lodge and Edgefield, there could potentially be multiple weddings on the same day/at the same time, but in different parts of the location.  I didn’t think that was too big of a deal, though.  In the end, we got our first choice (International Rose Garden) by compromising with mom.

 

Bridgeport only holds up to 115 in their largest room, the Heritage Room.

I started by looking at Portland Bride and Groom magazine online- they list a lot of reception venues, and I just ended up calling/emailing a lot of them to find out their prices.

You could also look into the art museums for a non-hotel feel.  There’s also the Armory, but I don’t know off the top of my head how much these places are.  It could be out of your budget.

Good luck!
