$4k venue for 40 people isn’t a bad budget but the issue is The majority of venues had a 25k minimum that we looked at.  Would you consider a restaurant Instead of a traditional reception venue? Maybe you could rent out a space and just hire a cater Separately? You could price compare.  Sorry I can’t be much help. Good luck!

Society of Colonial Dames! The rental fee was super affordable and it would be perfect for your size wedding 🙂 you hire your own caterer from their list so hitting a minimum shouldn’t be a problem 🙂


ETA: Manayunk brewery has more of that urban/loft feel and are pretty affordable.  I think they have a minimum but it was only $5000 for a Saturday evening so I assume it’ll be less for friday

We used partyspace.com for Phila. Call the venues you’re interested in. Many have smaller rooms than those advertised. I believe the place where my daughter had her bridal shower is advertised for 250, but that’s the capacity of their ballroom. Her shower room held 40. It also has hotel rooms attached, but the core is a Main Line mansion, so not your style.
