A few non-beach places that spring to mind: Avila golf & country club, Davis Islands Garden Club, Kapok, the Crosley Estate, the Lange farm. I was looking for a beach venue so I’m not 100% certain of the costs associated with these venues.

One tip before you start – figure out your budget first.  I know you said “low cost” and maybe you already have a budget (if so, then just ignore this).  But if not, first sit down and seriously figure out a budget (for your entire wedding).  Most places say you spend 50% of that budget on your reception.  Once you nail down if you can spend $1000 or $10,000 (or whatever) on your reception, go from there.  (Trust me, I first started looking without a set budget and ended up wasting a lot of time!!)

A few places to consider (on the really cheap end): Lettuce Lake Park (in Tampa), Hillsborough River State Park (near Tampa) – both would require a caterer, but I think Publix does some cheap catering…  Good Luck!!
