- Wedding: May 2015 - The Sutherland
I need help finding a country chic venue for my May wedding in Wake Forest/ North Raleigh. I don’t want to spend $5,000 on a site and I have a caterer already. I don’t want to break the bank just on a location, I need to seat 200 and I want it to have a country chic feel. I understand this is extremely specific. Any help possible is welcome. Hey I would love to find someones personal refurbished barn haha.
Thanks in advance!

What about a park?
Usually you can rent out state park picnic areas for less than $1500 (in CA anyway).
We’re renting out about half of a campground for our wedding and still came up cheaper for three days of space than we ever would have for a “venue”. Complete with ocean view and cliffside cocktail hour.
There are a few issues with logistics (mostly concerning noise and electricity) but with a little out of the box thinking, it can work. I’ve seen it tastefully done quite a few times.
Sorry, wish I could give you something more specific but I know absolutely nothing east of Colorado.
Best of luck!

Have you looked at any of the rental venues through the city of Raleigh? They are all pretty affordable and I think some have capacities for your number of guests; they’re located all around the city so there might be something in North Raleigh. Some of them have alcohol restrictions (no alcohol or no red wine) but not all. Whether any fall under what you’d call ‘country chic’ or not… hard to say.
