Does it just have to be in the West Chester area? There are some nice places in Bucks and Delaware counties, from country clubs to gardens to farms and traditional banquet halls.

What sort of venue are you looking for? Rustic, modern, etc.?

What is your budget? You may also want to post this is in the Philadelphia forum.

Check out partyspace.com, too. It is such an invaluable resource for Greater Philadelphia venues.

Is $10,000 your total wedding budget? Or just for the reception?

For reception, it could work. But for the whole wedding…for 100. I don’t know…

One of the bees (yrret107) got married at Milestones in West Chester. As far as I know, it’s BYOB and BYO-caterer. That’s probably how you’ll save the most money.

Here’s her breakdown/recap/review:

(There are some other suggestions in that thread, too).

If you scroll down some, you can see some pictures/more info of the venue, here:

I’m sure she’d be happy to answer questions.

 

I’ll continue to search my files 🙂

We got married at Meredith Manor which has a Pottstown PA address and it’s about 35 minutes outside of West Chester.  It was perfect for us, if you like that outdoor feel.  We live in west chester, and most of our family lives there and it wasn’t inconvenient at all.  It has a rustic barn, which held our cocktail hour but if you have less than 100 people, it holds the reception.  Otherwise the reception is in a beautiful white tent.

I’m going to a wedding at Concordville Inn which is closer to west chester than Meredith Manor was.  It’s a nice place, not a rustic barn though.

@littleprettyliz:

I would try Bartram Gardens or any of the parks/ venues within the parks e.g. Fairmount Park http://www.examiner.com/diy-weddings-in-philadelphia/philadelphia-s-top-10-diy-wedding-venues-no-2-fairmount-park-1 or Valley Forge Park.

Not only can you diy your decor, but with most you can choose your own caterer. If it is definitely West Chester that you are seeking consider Immaculata University, West Chester University or simply contracting a nice farm or private garden in the area.

We were so close to booking Springton Manor farm! It’s SO incredibly beautiful and rustic and that one old oak tree in the back almost sold us. And that tree-lined path for pictures. And the ceremony area, plus the big kitchen for caterers. I loved the woman that we were working with at the time too, Kim, she was new then so might still be there.

There’s no special reason we didn’t book there, but we had already fallen in love with our venue (up in Lehigh Valley so not near your area) and were only visiting Springton Manor Farm because we didn’t want to cancel at late notice.

My point is….I really hope Springton Manor Farm works out for you. I can just imagine how beautiful your wedding would be.

Some other considerations if it doesn’t:

Tyler Arboretum, The Old Mill, Rosebank Winery, John J Audubon Center, and the Farmhouse in Wilmington, DE.
