  • Wedding: March 2017 - Allentown Brew Works

I know it’s not NJ but depending how far you’re willing to go, my wedding is going to be at the Allentown Brew Works (I know of some Jersey brides who have chosen this venue as well) and it is fantastic. They have a $5,000 event minimum but that minimum is very achievable. It can go as cheap or expensive as you want. You can do buffet instead of plated, cash bar, beer and wine open, or full open, as many or few appetizers as you like, etc etc. We’re expecting around 90 guests and even with plated meals and beer & wine open bar ours worked out to be $6,200.

mnl2017 :  I can’t remember the exact numbers, but I believe when I contacted Valenzano Winery last year they had prices near the range you are looking for.  They do all their pricing through the caterers they offer, so you might be able to get this cheaper if you contact each caterer and see their prices.

Valenzano has some nice reception spaces, and more of an indoor/outdoor space so it wouldn’t be much of an outdoor issue.  Plus, they have some of the best wine in Jersey!

Try the Westwood in Garwood. I am getting married their and the prices are very reasonable and the food is excellent. I have 100 people but they are multiple rooms so it is worth a shot! Their website has all of their packages/pricing too so you can look before if you would like. Best of luck bee!

mnl2017 :  If you’re open to finding a venue in the tri-state area, I suggest looking on Partyspace.com. You can search by capacity, date, and county. I found it really useful when I was online searching for a particular venue that Fiance and I wanted in the Philly area. Good luck and don’t stress!
