Looking for an inexpensive Venue in the Bay Area

Hello everyone!
I am having a difficult time finding a beautiful and affordable wedding venue!

We are planning on having no more than 100 guests and my dream has always been to get married outside and have the reception at the same location indoors. We want to have a great time at our wedding with lots of dancing and great food. Our wedding date is open but I am hoping for Labor Day weekend, Sunday September 1st, 2013.

The biggest problem is budget. We plan to pay for most of it with help from my parents so the cheaper the better! We prefer a location that will allow us to bring our own food and drinks (this is typically cheaper). We want to keep EVERYTHING (not including my dress or our rings) under $12,000.

Any suggestions will be good suggestions!

Thanks!!

That is such a pretty place to get married! The reception locations seem pretty dated but the gardens and trees is such a great location!

i have a friend getting married and she is looking for a location to have the ceremony (she already has a reception location) so I will be suggesting this location to her! Thank you!

Thank you all so much!!

They suggest u look at their calendar to see of your date is available and since the Sunday date I was planning was not listed I assumed they did not offer rentals on that day. I will look more into it because it really is a beautiful venue!

Hi jeff, on their calendar it only offered Saturdays but I'll try and call to get more info.

Art & Garden Center in Ross/Greenbrae may be too far for us. We want to stay closer to San Ramon, Walnut Creek maybe SF if there is a good/cheap hotel for guests. I live in San Ramon/Dublin area so family can stay at my parents home to keep their cost down.

But thank you for that suggestion!

Thanks Jess! It sure is pretty! But I am actually Jewish (I should have mentioned that sooner) so a church just won't suit us. We wanna stay away from a religious ceremony because he is not Jewish.

Thank you very much fr your input tho!

I looked at the Outdoor Art Show and it seems very beautiful but does not rent out on Sundays :/. But really great suggestion!

Thank you KatoK!
I looked that location up! I need to get more information but it is def a great start!!

Also I was thinking aboutvmy budget and I want to stay under 20,000 but that would be including everything not just venue! I hope that it's manageable to find a location I love! :)

Bay Area wedding on a grad student's budget

I agree! This loations is beautiful! I attended a wedding there a couple summers ago and it seemed perfect. The only thing that keeps me from booking it is there was no dance floor/music allowed and I don't think you can have more than 80 guest.

It is still worth looking at!

Need to find a place to get married!

Hello everyone!
I am a college student that is going to marry the love of my life who just recently graduated grad school. We are both from the Bay area and want to get married close by but we are open to Sf, Walnut Creek, Livermore etc.

We are planning on having no more than 100 guests and my dream has always been to get married outside (maybe a winery) and have the reception at the same location indoors. We want to have a great time at our wedding with lots of dancing and great food. Our wedding date is open but I am hoping for Memorial Day weekend in 2012. (we will be getting married on a Sunday)

The biggest problem is budget. We plan to pay for most of it with help from my parents so the cheaper the better! I don't want to say an exact amount because I have no idea how much weddings cost!

Any suggestions will be good suggestions!

One thing is we do not want to get married at a community center or a park (i know those are the cheapest) but we have attended many weddings at those types of locations and really want something unique and elegant!
