I thought I would try my luck on getting some help for my upcoming wedding. We are looking to get married August 2013 with a guestlist of approximately 100 people. Being new parents we do not want to spend a lot of money on a wedding but, we do not want to go the justice of the peace route either. We are looking to spend approximately $100/pp but, only in Manhattan, Queens, or Brooklyn (I know I am very picky). We are looking to have less of a formal wedding and more of a big party environment.
If anyone has any ideas for places that would be greatly appreciated.

Try reposting this on the NYC local board. The local bees might be able to give you some ideas. But there’s another thread on rehearsal dinner venues you might want to look into that would be closer to $100/pp all inclusive.

Go to the “Top of the Strand” – located on 37th Street. They have a rooftop that is perfect for a party of 100 – great food and drinks and a breathtaking view of the city and the Empire State Building. You could also try the Sequoia in South Street Seaport – river views, terrace and inside party space. The food is also good and you can get a great menu for about $85 per person.

Here is a nice place I’ve been to for a wedding before. It’s in Astoria. Not sure how much it is pp, though.

try to dermine if you want just a regular traditional banquet catering hall wedding reception or a more party/loungy feel. Both are great, but the offer different atmospheres. I do party coordinating and can help you if you wish (no charge for any venue referrals). I live in NYC so send me an email. Keep in mind that in Manhattan, your $100 per person would only be drinks and appetizers. If you want a sit down dinner, it will be more. You may be able to get someting via the ark restaurant group, like Sequoia’s on South Street Seaport. Plenty of venues in Queens and Brooklyn, but unless you want ReBar – it’s all pretty tradiitional unless you rent gallery space.
Would love to help. Reach out to me.
