I had a budget wedding outside of Philly and I strongly recommend national parks and historical buildings. Cost wise they are the most affordable but most are not all inclusive, you may need m to hire your own catering and rentals, its a lot more work but you will save a ton of money by doing so.

Kaht :  What is your budget? I’m not sure what “cheap” means to you. I got married 1:45 North of Philly. Our reception was outside, actually under trees and next to the Delaware river

We were looking for similar venues! I can almost guarantee you’ll get more for your money as you head towards Lancaster.

The following are all in Lancaster. You might look into Rock Ford Plantation and Prospect Valley Farm. Both should be accessible and for Prospect Valley at least I know you can bring your own caterer. You might also like The Cloister and/or the Eicher Arts Center next door.

In Delaware County, maybe check out the Sage Farmhouse. They have a couple caterers at different price points. Also the Community Arts Center. Not so “rustic” per se, but they have an beautiful outdoor ceremony space with a stone tower.

More ideas… 

The Landis Valley living history museum in Lancaster

The Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown

The Lancaster Liederkranz – very budget, a German cultural club with a nice pavilion

The Calvin G. High pavilion in Lancaster – very budget, a gorgeous pavilion in a quiet knoll/green space in an industrial park! Unconventional but it is a nice space actually for a picnic type event.

The Rocky Top Lodge Bed and Breakfast in Lancaster, almost Berks County – very budget, very rustic and pretty, and you could rent the whole B&B

Ooh my wedding is over but I still love looking at wedding venues lol, and have been 😍 over soonzak’s suggestions. Love the rustic and homey feel to a lot of these 🙂

We looked a bit into your area but ultimately was too far for us. A couple I thought were nice were Welkinweir and John James Audubon- unsure of pricing though.
