Try to find a restaurant in your area that offers private rooms.  I know it’s not what you want per se, but it’s probably your best and cheapest bet.

What about having it at someone house?

You could do a backyard bar-b-que or find a restaurant that will deliver food to you or let you pick it up.

I think both of those ideas are great, and probably your best bet!!

Another proponent for the backyard wedding here.  It can be as casual or as chic as you want it, and you can get married right there.  Plus, in May, it shouldn’t be unbearably warm yet!

You could get married at the restaurant, if you want to. I would just make sure you are in a separate room though, from the rest of the patrons.

a second looking into private rooms at a restaurant or having it catered at someone’s house. you should check out mrs. mary jane’s posts on the blog, she had a wedding for about 10 people as well with a similar budget. you could also combine your honeymoon with your wedding–invite the family out to wherever you are honeymooning and have a small destination wedding. again you can look on the blog, mrs. sea breeze did that at an all-inclusive resort in the dominican republic, so all the food & alcohol was included in their resort stay and there was plenty of entertainment put on by the resort staff. her wedding looked like so much fun i found myself wishing i was a guest!

@OctoberBee2: that’s a great idea too! my original vision for our wedding was a small wedding at a bed and breakfast. and now we’re working to keep the guest list under 200. sigh…

I agree with the bed and breakfast.  You might find one that will hold the wedding and dinner if you rent a room from them.

We are having our reception at a cafe.  They have private dining room with no food charge requirements.

some courthouse halls are really pretty with big open courtyards or huge marble entry ways where you can have an actual ceremony with chairs for guests and space for photographers.  I agree – I think B&B or restaurants would be the best way to go!
