If she is on a tight budget there are 3 or 4 Martin’s catering halls in the Baltimore area.  Almost all of the museums have facilities too, as does the zoo and aquarium.  I’d probably start with gettinga Baltimore Bride or Maryland Weddings magazine at a bridal show or at Barnes & Noble.  Some of them had lists of venues and pricing, etc.

Maryvale

Cloisters

Swan Harbor Farm (havre de grace)

Liriodendron (bel air)

Bulle Rock (havre de grace)

Gray Rock Mansion (in-house caterer)

Manor Tavern (in-house)

Engineer’s Club (in-house)

Irvine Nature Center (garrison)

Evergreen Historical Mansion

Overhills Mansion (in house catering) (catonsville)

Chase Court is gorgeous. Ceresville in Frederick has in-house catering.

And the World Trade Center in Baltimore does events- the views are *phenomenal*, and for a downtown location, the price was competitive.

The Flag House and Creative Alliance were two of the lower-priced venues we had quotes from. They’ll both need more decorating than some of the others.

It also depends on what kind of feel she is going for: romantic B&B style, water front, industrial, offbeat, etc?  Also, what time of the year?

if she is a bit more on the offbeat bride side, you could look into the american visionary art museum… it’s a GORGEOUS venue, but the art is definitely of a very specific style (my fiance said it was too weird haha)

@twoblackcats:  I wouldn’t think of AVAM for a bride on a tight budget – as I recall venue fee there was over $6K and didn’t include anything other than a big empty space.  Plus no parking 🙂

OP – there may be better deals outside of the city, what county would be most convenient?

Hey we looked at most of these places, chase court, the cloisters and pier v were all at least 15-20k wedding venues. We have a very generous budget and they definitely aren’t worth that kind,of money. If you want to PM me and I’ll be happy to share what we found. I live in Baltimore and would be happy to help!

OP- What kind of vibe does the bride want? The area has tons of options, so that would help narrow down the suggestions.

There are also a ton of hotels in Baltimore that offer the small-venue feel.  We’re getting married at Hotel Monaco in the inner harbor.  I think the room holds 150 max (as a tight fit).

Hunt Valley isn’t too far north of Baltimore and has a wide array of country clubs.
