Any recommendations? I know this is vague, but have not considered budget yet (just engaged as of Friday!!). Fell in love with Roxbury Barn (http://www.theroxburybarn.com/), but will likely have a guest list of over 150, which is their absolute max. Would love to find a place with real strucutres, so we don’t have to bring in tents and bathrooms. Mainly searching in the CT/NY area. Please send suggestions my way!

Hi! Roxbury Barn is lovely… and also costs over $10k. No food or anything, just the site. Yikes right! I’ve seen so many barns that cost $5000-$10000. I can’t get over that. Windfall Dutch Barn is only $1000. Not the prettiest barn around, but could be made prettier. You could look into Old Tater Barn, Raspberry Field Farms, Barn at Hog’s Hollow, Shadowlawn.
I agree on no bringing in your own bathrooms, haha!

I looked in same areas as you but wanted to not spend so much on just the venue. If the venue has items included that you would have to rent seperately then it might be worth it. Everything costs more than you think, so might as well add $500 to everything on your list – yikes! I know, scary but that’s what has happened to me. Unless you happen to know a lot of people with talents that wont charge.
My venue is 2hrs west of NYC, Friedman Farms. prices went up for 2016 and dont know if they still have saturdays available in 2016. It’s a popular place. So the venue was $3300 for a Sunday, $4100 for a Saturday but you have to get all vendors. My fave thing though after looking at so many barn/rustic venues is that they have regular indoor bathrooms. what a relief!
