Catering is usually the biggest cost, so yes, if you’re doing Subway that will probably only be a couple hundred dollars. I don’t think champagne really goes with sub sandwiches though…hmm. Just get a venue that lets you bring your own food in. A lot of places will let you bring your own catering, but it has to be a licensed caterer (ie you can’t make your own food/just bring takeout in, it has to be someone who’s insured and licensed), so watch out for that.

I’m from CA so I’m not sure how things are handled in MA, but check out the local recreation and park locations if they have them.  Our local rec and park has a few locations where you can bring your own food and beverages.  If you serve any kind of liquor you need to acquire a license which isn’t that hard to do but time-consuming.  They also require a one-day insurance policy to cover any injuries that may happen.  Some local halls (Eagles, Elks, Moose and the like) will also rent space for receptions.  Best wishes.

I just shot a couple that got married at Scott Farm in Brattleboro VT. I’m not sure about the BYOB thing, but it covers a few of the bases you mentioned.


Here’s a few of the pics: http://www.vicpellicier.com/Wordpress/?p=1200

I’d also recommend calling up all the State Parks. Things get really gorgeous when driving up I91 or Route 7 (through the Berkshires)

 You might want to check out the Portuguese club in chicopee. There just a hall with no frills but you can bring in what ever you want except the alcohol but there very reasonable. We rented the hall for 750. that included the chairs and tables and the hall.
