Anyone have a wedding venue or reception site to reccomend in the temecula or Murietta area that is below $100/head? A lot of the venues aren’t anything special and have absurd price gauging at 120/head plus 20% service fee on top (why not just publish the actual rate??)
im thinking of renting a ceremony site and possibly using a restaurant which ranges between 40-70/head, but many of the restaurants I contacted are too small (I’d like to fit 65 people).
Ive found two winery sites in the $100 range but they have a high minimum or about 100pp, whereas we’ll only have 65.
thanks for the help!

A friend of a friend got married at Secluded Garden Estate in Pala, so close to Temecula and they used Temecula catering. I believe it was very reasonable for the area and the pictures are AMAZING! Good luck and keep us updated 🙂 I just looked at the catering and the Mon Tresor package they did is $42/head and I heard REALLY good things .

Theres a lot of private estates popping up. Have you looked a Chateau Adare? Gorgeous spot.
Secluded Garden Estate, Owl Creek Farms, Temecula Olive Oil Farm, Galaway Downs, Bella Gardens Estates, Whispering Oaks Terrace, Abbott Manor, The Humphrey’s Estate

It depends on what package you go with and your guest count, but at one point I was looking at the Wedgewood there. They have tons of locations throughout CA.

Thanks for all these comments, it is very appreciated!
I’ve started a spreadsheet so other folks can have this research pre-done. Will link later.
The Humphrey’s Estate – Isn’t doing weddings!
Chateau Adare – $12,500 to $35,000 range
Secluded Garden Estate – Base site rental is $3712(F) to $4,992(S) not including anything like tables. (has really bad reviews though!)
Bella Gardens Estates – Site Rental starts at $10,000 inclusive of tables, linens, chairs, etc
Abbott Manor – Base price – $8,000.00 incl photographer, but not incl food or alcohol
Wedgewood – This is a great idea. I’ll contact for custom pricing, it seems to range significnatly by location. This seems to range about $100-125/head which is really good for the area.
Owl Creek Farms – $16,000 for 100ppl not incl alcohol
Temecula Olive Oil Farm – Couldnt find!
Galaway Downs (Wedgewood) – Minimum is 20k
Whispering Oaks Terrace – Base site rental is $3,500to $3,700 for rental, not incl food/alc

All I know is stay farrrrr away from Temecula Coachhouse. I had nothing but problems with the Coordinator because she was very scatter brained and change her rules a ton. We ended up having to move venues because of her. I’ve also talked to a few other brides who had their wedding there and said it was a terrible experience. She’s also the coordinator for Temecula Creek Cottages so stay away from that place as well. Good luck
