Try http://partyspace.com/philadelphia.

I’d stay away from the city, as their sales tax is higher and often their service charges and gratuity. My daughter married in DE (no sales tax), and chose all their vendors in DE, except for apparel and saved thousands. They also saved around $50 per person by chosing a non-Saturday night.

Have you looked at Lancaster? We are pretty much decided on Philly now, but FH looked at White Chimneys and I think a place called the Farmhouse? Or Barn?

Outside of Philly (I think it’s Bucks County) there are a few wineries which could be beautiful for winter weddings. Try looking around there!

Check out the Mansion on Main Street in Voorhees,  NJ. It’s not far from Philly. The venue is outstanding and the food and service are awesome.  You will be able to stay in your budget and get alot for your money.

I  had forgot I’d saved this link, too:http://philly.racked.com/maps/philadelphia-areas-very-best-wedding-venues

It took us 40 minutes to get to Wilmington, DE, straight down the Blue Route and I-95, for my daughters wedding. Last May we went to a center city Phila. wedding and it took us twice that long, due to traffic on the Expressway (maybe it was an accident on the Vine St.), I don’t know. They had to push the ceremony back a half hour because of it.

2XMOB:  Would you mind sharing what venues your daughters used for their weddings?  We are in MD but our families are in NYC/MA so DE may actually be a good compromise for everyone (not a bad drive from the Philly airport, and about the same length drive from MD and NYC).  It’s jsut tough to research venues remotely….. Thanks!
