There’s a few places down the Cape, but those are pricier. 

What about Gloucester?  There’s an Elks lodge that I looked into.  It’s across the street from the ocean, and it’s more rocky than sandy, but the price wasn’t bad and there’s lodging for guests next door.  And the views from the reception hall were amazing.

Lynch Park in Beverly!!! It’s a beautiful rise garden right on each beach!

If you’re open to Rhode Island, we got married at Easton’s Beach Rotunda Ballroom, right on the beach, in Newport RI.  It was gorgeous!! The facility rates were reasonable on “off” dates (we did a Sunday in 2010) and we could bring in whatever caterer we wanted, which gave us a lot of price control.  You can get married inside or right outside on the beach.  The ballroom is a second-story rotunda with huge windows on all 12 sides, and water views all around (it’s on a strip of road between the ocean and a saltwater lake).

Here’s their website: http://www.cityofnewport.com/departments/enterprise-fund/ballroom/home.cfm

And here are some pics of the venue that we took when we were scouting out places. The little circle in the pic below is the outdoor wedding spot.

This is a view out the windows:

And a view from the wraparound deck:

Good luck, wherever you choose!

I’d have to dig back through files to get the exact number, but from what I remember I think we paid something like $1900 venue fee. That’s for a Sunday event in early October – I believe Saturdays were much more expensive.  But that got us the entire facility for 5 1/2 hour event (5 for reception 30 min for ceremony) plus a few hours setup/breakdown before and after (they were very flexible, we were there from 8:30am to almost 7 that night), plus tables & chairs for 130 people.  Plus 1 hour’s use of the carousel right nextdoor for us and our guests!  People are still talking about it. 🙂
