I am looking for a venue that is outdoor for an early fall wedding. I am planning on having between 100-150 people. I would like it to be under a tent and hold the ceremony and reception at the same place. To save costs I am looking for a place that will allow me to bring my own alcohol and they provide a bartender. Something else I have thought I would like to do is make my own side dishes and have the venue serve them with carving stations. I am looking for somewhere in the Capital Region. I am open to ALL suggestions. I also want to keep my costs low.

have you looked into Crystal Cove? It’s in Avrill Park, it’s not a tent but a pavillion and you can bring your own alcohol. The food is good, not sure about bringing your own sides and I understand it’s very affordable.

How about a local park? Thatcher has great views. I think that most would let you set-up a tent and bring your own food and drink.

It’s tough because “budget” wedding means a lot of different things to different people. I won’t spend more than 4k on everything and you might be wanting to spend 10k. It would be helpful to know more.
Check out the post below on flexible venues, too.

Have you looked at the Pruyn House in Colonie? I’m not sure about exact pricing but I have seen beautiful weddings there. There is space for the ceremony and reception and there is space for a tent.

I am looking to spend about $10k. I have checked into Crystal Cove, while I haven’t seen it in person I like the looks of it from their website. Their prices are a little higher than what I’m looking to spend per person and I hate the fact that they limit it to 5 hours and charge $4.95 per person for a ceremony and you have to be off the premise by 10:30pm.
I am also leaning towards the Crossings of Colonie because I think it’s beautiful it would just take a lot of creativity to make it work.
I have never been to Thatcher Park and haven’t looked in to the Pruyn House but I will check them out.
Any catering suggestions that are inexpensive. I wouldn’t be looking for fancy food but would want a little more than just hor douvres since I will have a lot of guest traveling from out of town.
