I’m looking for a reception venue for about 75 people. The ceremony will be held elsewhere, so don’t need to worry about that. We’re looking to have all costs (venue fee, food/drink, alcohol) for around $7-8k but would be amazing if it were able to be under that. So far, we’re considering private event spaces at restaurants, clubs, etc. Would love a ‘garden/outdoorsy’ feel! Any suggestions??
If it helps, there isn’t a day in mind yet. Most likely October/November. And we’re open to daytime events as well as Thursday and Sundays (since those are usually less expensive).

Aurora in Williamsburg would probably work well for your budget and what you’re envisioning. I go there regularly for brunch and love the food there. I saw a few blogs with some stunning wedding photos from there. We considered it for a wedding before ultimately deciding on a different plan.
I also really like Juliette in Williamsburg – but if I’m remembering my initialy inquiry to them, their capcity may go down during the colder months, so I’d ask about their capacity for the months you’re interested in.

I’m also looking for some thoughts on this subject! We’re doing a NYC ourthouse wedding week of July 4th, looking to do reception that Saturday or Sunday. Would love a view but will settle for just outside space, period. Want inclusive – venue, apps, drinks – for approx 50 ppl at $5,000. We’ve been doing some looking, not relying on this post, but would LOVE any feedback. Thank you!
