    And if you’re willing to go even farther there are some lovely wineries in Prince Edward County that do weddings that are afforable and very very nice.

    Or in Niagara I found Herdner Estates while doing research for a friend. They charge $135/per person, however it includes a lot including a DJ..

    I’m sure ther is much moer in teh niagara region if you’re willing to go that far.

    Also if your venue is out of thecity I would def look into getting a caterer out of the city…way cheaper.

    There’s also many ways to cut costs. For us we cut down the alcohol provided, did DIY centerpieces part of which was provided by black creek (lanterns), cut down on flowers – did my own alter arrangements, had muffs for BMs instead of bouquets, bout only for groom, shopped around for deals on photog and music entertainment, family member video taped the wedding for us, I did cupcakes with a small 6″ cake on top of a DIY’ed cupcake stand which cost me ony $90 (a bee baked my cupcakes for me!), DIY’ed invites and programs from michaels, used shoes and accessories I already owned,, borrowed my veil from my cousin… all this to say that even if you end up spending a little more on the venue, there are plenty of ways to cut back and still have a fabulous day with hardly anything missed 🙂

    Ooo, the kortright centre looks gorgeous! I haven’t been there since elementary school, I want an outdoor ceremony too. I was narrowing it down between Markham Museum or Heitzman House but i’m really liking kortright now!!

    I am looking at a budget of $6000 for about 40 people.

    We’ve booked a really cute restaurant Mrs. Mitchell’s which is a bit past Orangeville, about an hour drive from Toronto, very reasonable prices ($60 per person) that includes the cost of food and renting the restaurant and using the outside garden for the ceremony.  I’ve always wanted to have an outside ceremony and the place is beautiful and soo reasonably priced. $2400 not including drink (my mom has offered to pay this fee, although I am still debating it and will probably convince her to pay half half at least.

    probably around $700 or so on alchohol

    The cost for an officient is $250

    I am hoping my dress and my Fiance suit will not go over $1000 (my sister has graciously offered to buy my dress if we can find anything for $500 or under and if not she’ll pay $500 and I will pay the rest)

    Rings-$1000

    Cake-$300

    Flowers-$200 (we know a reasoanbly priced flower shop and we’re not looking for anything extravagant)

    Invitations-probably $150 or so…

    We know at least 2 professional photographers who’ll do the photos for free or a very small fee.

    We’re doing the wedding first week of September so hopefully the wheather will be nice. I would really recommand looking into this venue if you’re looking for a beautiful place that’s also affordable.

    @stargurl101:  I see you had your wedding at Black Creek – how was your experience?  It’s in our top 2 right now and I really like it, I’ve just read mixed reviews about it

    @MsGinkgo:  Well i think it depends on what’s important to you. For us a unique location was #1 and a pioneer village is just so “us”. I was really pleased with the wedding consultant at black creek – she nswered all of my questions, was there the day of to assist with anything, ws really accomodating with any changes we wanted to the menu, bar, she arranged for a horse and wagon.. was really great.

    What I really enjoyed was everything that was included – linens, photo permit, bar, food, hor’deurves, linens, even favours (maple syrup) and centre peices (black ikea lanterns) were included!

    The food I found was very tastey. It wasn’t fine dining or anything, but it was good, flavourfull, hot and overall we were satisfied. We also were not going for a high-end, fancy wedding, but wanted everything to feel more like home and the food went along with that feeling.

    PM me if you’d like to know anything else!

    We looked and priced out weddings in Toronto so I voted based on that. We were looking at between $35,000 and $50,000. It was going to be very expensive and that was without taking into account that a lot of people were going to have to travel for the wedding. And this did not include the rings or any honeymoon. In the end, we decided to, let’s say, go in a different direction.

    Anyway, hope that helps.

    Our wedding will be in downtown Toronto and for about 130 ppl, we’re looking at around $45k right now (not including rings and honeymoon)… at least that’s what our budget is. I really hope it doesn’t end up being higher. The venue (including a rental fee, food, and open bar) represents most of the budget.
