@miss.skinner: My Fiance suggests avonworth community park’s mayernik center. I will attach the link at the end of this message. This location is gorgeous. It has a log cabin like feel to it and is pretty affordable. We are having a fall wedding next September. We are having our reception at the great hall. There is no hall rental fee, and the food prices are excellent! I am so excited about our location. It is affordable and I personally love the unique style to it. I will include that link too. Either way, the catering we’re using is Remo’s and I believe that is a recommended caterer for both of the aforementioned locations. Their food is really good :-). There are picutres of both locations on the websites. I hope this helps :-).

We just got married at Mellon Park in the City with our reception at the Forest Hills/Westinghouse Lodge.  It’s all park setting and the lodge is super cheap to rent plus you get to hire your own caterer.  We went for a local BBQ place and did everything for well under 10K.  I still have to determine what our exact costs were but food and hall was under $5K.  We planned for 250 but only had ~160.

There’s also North Park around Wexford/Pine Richland. They have a number of grove rentals and the Lodge or the Rose Barn. (link below) I do know that the Rose Barn is $250 to rent and the Lodge is $300. They look sort of plain from the outside, but I’ve seen indoor pics and with decorations they were beautiful! North Park is a really gorgeous place too. Good luck to them 🙂

This is a little off the beaten path but what about a campground… I know that Seneca Hills in Franklin has a beautiful reception area and a nice size chapel!  Franklin is about an hour north of Cranberry township.  Seneca Hills is a beautiful non-denominational camp!

Try South Park or Northpark. If you want to go a little outside the city, we are having ours at Hartwood Acres/Manor. It’s so beautiful out there.

I am having my wedding at the Mayernik and it unless you made significant cuts in everything else, you would not be able to get 250-300 people on that budget.

I have friends that just got married at the boat house in North Park and did a really  nice BBQ for $12-13/pp.

We are getting married at south park in one of the buildings and it only costs $300 (plus a $50 fee for alchol) I believe it is $150 for a grove and you could use any caterer (we are using armstrongs resturant and their prices range from $8-$14 pp.

hope this helps
