I recently got engaged and our wedding is set for July 2014. I am searching for a Venue that is nice and is priced $50-$60/per person. I will be having 150 people attending the reception. I am also thinking about renting a hall in either Queens, Long Island or Brooklyn and just get a professional to decorate it for me. I will have my Jamaican food catered and my husband to be, Dominican food catered. I am not sure if it’s worth spending Thousands and Thousands of dollars on a Venue that only includes the food or to rent a beautiful hall and DIY (Decorate it myself).
Every venue that I went to, it costed $8000-$14000 just for the the venues for 100 people. Where in Queens, Brooklyn or Long Island can I go to rent a beautifuly banquet/hall and do the decor, catering on my own? Thanks

@Sherene: I don’t have any suggestions for you, but I’ve flagged your post to be moved to your local board. Hopefully you’ll find someone there who can help you out

I’m looking for the same thing, Sherene. I haven’t found it yet either. If I find anything, I will let you know!

What about a Knights of Columbus or a VFW Hall? Those probably would run you a little cheaper.

If you are open to Fri/Sat am or Sundays the prices at most venues drop significantly
Have you tried the Swan Club in long Island… For October I was quoted $95 for Sat evening – I imagine their Fri and Sat am prices are more economical.
Also check out Crest Hollow Country club- we received the following quotes
October Sat pm $97, Sat am $60 Fri $92
Aug Sat pm $108, Sat am $60
Chapel fee outdoor $950, if indoor due to inclement weather $750
