We’re only having 30-35 people, and were having it at my mom’s house in lake arrowhead most likely. Is it possible for you to have it in someone’s nice backyard?

@allyfally:  I found that many places had two options, a space for a large wedding, and a space that couldn’t hold over 90. Try asking places if they have a smaller garden, ball room, etc. Maye they just aren’t featuring it.

@allyfally:  Have you tried restaurants/galleries/theatres/museums with private rooms? or even hotels with meeting rooms or board rooms?

@allyfally:  Are you actually in Louisville?  (As opposed to just for weddingbee?)

Here are a few places that are smaller from google (I don’t know what your looking for or price-point or anything but hopefully this is a starting point)….

(Can you tell I am bored?)

I had no issues at all finding a smalln venue. Although we are not having a sit down dinner at the venue, we are doing a cocktail reception we found a really nice victorian herritage house twith really nice gardens! I live in canada but im sure there are historric/herritage houses around where you live that could cater to what your looking for.

@allyfally:  Eurgh, that sucks.  We’re not looking for venues yet but as foodies I understand how frustrating it must be.

When I looked for links I searched for meeting and conference venues as well as events venues.  I tried to avoid the word “wedding” in my search even if the venue offers it because I think the places with larger rooms like to make people feel like anything below 500 guests is substandard (blasted people making money out of the W word). Found this too – I’m at work at there’s nothing to do today, you’ve probably seen it!. I wonder if you could do a search for private residences for hire in the area?  They often come with nothing except the building.  

I hope you find something suitable soon.

By The Way I work in events, I’m not crazy, honest.

Have you given any thought to the Louisville Zoo? They have different venues that can accomodate groups at small as 25.

I’ve never seen this place,but it seems to fit the bill

Im sure there are many more. I know there’ a ladies club at Hurstbourne Ln (near Taylorsville Rd) that might work, too. I’ve never seen the inside, but the outside is really nice. A white brick building, on a large manicured lawn.

I’m going to have a smallish wedding too, and it is a struggle to find venues and know where to look. Most places cater to hundreds of guests – not dozens.

I’ve found quite a few old historical houses that will rent to small weddings, dinner parties, etc. You could also look into a bed and breakfast that might suit your needs.

Hello, fellow small wedding bees! We will be a total of 20 guests, including us, and we’re having the ceremony at a vineyard in the South of France. Other posters have suggested historical houses, or even the zoo, I love it. Sorry, I’m not much help, but you will definitely find something, but you need to think outside the box.

We got married at a boutique hotel.  Small rooms decked to the nines.
