my brother got married at a restaurant, it was beautiful! it was on the water so they had the ceremony outside of the restaurant. it wasn’t too expensive, they were also on a budget but had about 200 people.

i got married at a historic inn, it was pretty small with only 11 rooms and kind of like a b&b but it has a restaurant in it. it was definitely cheaper then other places we looked, $35 per person including apps.

I plan to get married on the courthouse green and just ride or walk (depending on the weather) to a restaurant for our reception since they are both so close together:)

Depending on the restaurant you choose they probably get these kind of requests all the time. Most let you rent out a space (or even the whole place!), will play your special music over the speakers, will let you decorate, and even cut/serve a cake you bring in! Some things may have to fall by the wayside – garter/bouquete toss – but there can still be toasts and, if the space allows, a first dance

As you can see I am ALL about a restaurant reception XP

We’re getting married in a restaurant. It is on the 72nd floor of an office building in my area.

It is a pricey restaurant in our area, and we are choosing high-end food and alcohol, so the catering budget is high, but we don’t have to rent any furniture or bring in any decor, so we are saving a TON of money on rentals. We also don’t have to pay for any extra staffing costs, or all of those “extra” charges that hotels love to throw in. 

Attached is a picture of my venue. The view literally takes your breath away.

I’m  having my wedding at a restaurant. We’re buying out the main dining room for the night, but they have smaller private rooms for parties up to 100. We’ll have a DJ and a dance floor, which is actually where our reception will take place. I think restaurants are great because they cut back on the number of vendors we have to deal with, and we know we like the food!

what about an outdoor wedding under a tent? That’s certainly not stuffy.
