first.. good luck


i’m getting married in NY and couldn’t find a venue under 165 a plate. my guest list is at 250 but we’re shaving it down slowly. i just wrote a post about this in response to another NYC bride i’ll link you  – http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/nyc-wedding-venue-2

anyway, i started my search on NY Mag which has like everything in ny. if you pick up new york magazine they usually will list some less expensive options in manhattan however with your guestlist of 200+ people it’s going to be difficult to come in under 170 a plate after all is really said and done. Additionally, take in to consideration that you will most likely need to have Valet parking and it’s generally one attendant per 50 cars.. some venues provide it but not many (the Tribeca roof top provides it) 


there are also blank spaces (think skylight – http://skylightnyc.com/) that you can just rent but then you’d have to rent everything (lighting, caterer, tables, linens, chairs etc) as an outside vendor and while it seems like a good idea in the beginning it’s a LOT more work and can end up being costly. please let me know what you come up with! i gave up my manhattan wedding dream so let me live vicariously through you!

Have you looked at The Green Building?  It might end up being out of your price range since it does require rentals, but if you can get creative, it has an industrial feel and can accomodate your numbers!
