Hello! New to Weddingbee, and I just got engaged recently! I started looking into venues in the area, and after talking with family, friends, and my fiance, we’ve figured out some requirements I have for my venue:
– Up to $20k for venue
– Restaurant venue, so food, drinks, and tableware are all inclusive in the price
– Outdoor area for ceremony, indoor area for reception
– In Brooklyn or Queens, but would consider other boroughs or NJ
– Room for dancing
– Room for 80~ approx people
So far, in my search, the only two venues I really love that fit those specifications are MyMoon and Aurora. I love Frankies 457, since I’d prefer to have Italian food if possible, but the no dancing there is definitely no-go for me. Brooklyn Winery is gorgeous, but out of budget for us.
Can anyone recommend any other similar venues to these that I can visit so that I have more options? Thanks everyone. <3

NYC bride to be here!
I strongly considered Maiella LIC. The restaurant has great views by the water and wedding menus starting at $85/pp. Not sure if they have a dance floor, since that wasn’t my priority.

River Cafe on the Brooklyn waterfront is beautiful, and I think the price is in that range. I got a lot of family pressure to choose it, but decided against it for a couple reasons that may not matter to you – you can only choose music from their shortlist of DJs/bands, and their food is good but the servings seem tiny.

I know this is a bit old…but just saw this. I was heavily looking for a while.

With 20k you have a ton of options! There are even a few loft spaces that are well under 10k and beautiful and you can afford a great caterer for under 15k. DM if you want more options and are still looking.
