@Stace126: Any way you could get married at the reception site for a fee?

Fiance and I were in the same boat – on a budget, indoor wedding, and not religious.

We’re getting married in the auditorium of Raleigh Little Theatre. It’s a historic building, there’s no need to rent chairs, and it’s definitely memorable.

Other places we looked…

Museums. Art Galleries. Parks & Recreation buildings (like community centers or public art studios). Auditoriums in museums and universities. Old movie theaters. The NC Legislative Building. Hotel meeting rooms.

Don’t be afraid to look at weird places. Some of them turn out to be really great. Approach the owners of a nice space about renting it, even if it doesn’t seem like a traditional venue for a wedding.

I agree look into weird places… one it will be different but two a lot of people dont look at those places so you could get a good deal.. 

Museum, local college, places like these may work?

Hang in there. It took us 9 months to find the perfect place and we had much less time than you do!

Pittsburgh a big city so I’m sure you can find something!

What about a park? It’ll be relatively inexpensive, could be very romantic and totally nonreligous.

Could you get married in any of the parks? Frick or Scheleny? What about the garden at Phipps? (I don’t know the cost of any of these, just suggestions 🙂 )

Contact your local chamber of commerce, they are surprisingly good at knowing all the little hidden venues you may never have heard of before.

We ran into a similar problem. Once I really started digging in our area there were some really cool places that I never even thought of as weding locations. Think museums, theaters, colleges/universities, nice restaurants or hotels. We ended up going with a local restaurant that backs up to a river and has a private dining area for large parties w/private amenities and friends of ours recently got married in our local Agricultural museum and it was surprisingly awesome and beautiful. Good luck and don’t get overwhelmed- it can and will be done and you will be estatic it was worth the search!

What about the Heinz History Center?
