If you are trying to lower your budget I would go with a place that lets you bring ur own alcohol, like the Decatur Court House. If your dates are flexible you can try to negotiate a lower price on a date that is not that popular.

Thanks guys for the replies. My budget is around 15,000. I also have to consider a lot of out of town guest. THANKS HMASON817 im not hood or ghetto. I may be African American but I have values/morals. thanks for the smart remark.

I did not mean to offend you, The old decatur court house is a wedding venue. I think it is quite cute. http://www.dekalbhistory.org/dekalb_history_center_facility-rental.htm

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I guess it would make since that that could be taken wrong if you did not know about the place, should have added the link.

The roswell founders hall is another option but another decent priced venue that is nice, but out of town guest will probably need a car.

Hi Alexis!

Congratulations to you and Lawrence on your upcoming wedding! I am a Wedding Planner and have a few suggestions for you to consider:

Villa Christina: www.villachristina.com

Lambert Place: www.lambertplace.net

Spring Hall: www.springhallatl.com

KTN Ballroom: www.ktnballroom.com

Also, I wanted to offer a wedding budget tidbit for you and Lawrence to please keep in mind as you continue in your planning...most venues have lower rates and great packages on Fridays and Sundays versus a Saturday. Saturday evening is the most popular time for couples to get married and is the most expensive.

Happy Planning! I hope these suggestions prove helpful to you!

Peace and Blessings,
Kathy Grate

hmason817 I truly apologize! I am not familiar with the Atlanta area. I've been in the area (Smyrna) for about 3. Again I apologize.

There are also all-inclusive venues (wedding and reception) for under 10k. I had a friend that had a wedding at one in Tucker. It was pretty nice. Check these out..

No problem, reading what I wrote again I totally see how it could be taken wrong. I should have been more clear. It was my fault.

We got married last March at Anthony's Fine Dining in Buckhead. We had 54 ppl and for under $6000 we had a sit-down dinner, full bar, linens, chairs etc. Consider getting married during Jan, Feb or March; they offered a us a 20 % discount for that time of year and the weather was gorgeous!!!! Good luck!!!

We got married at the Solarium in East Lake (Decatur). It is a gorgeous historic building that is run by the Community Center (a non-profit), so has very reasonable rentals. They also let you bring your own alcohol - key for a budget wedding. We got all of our alcohol (wine and premium beers) for just under $1,000 at Total Wine near Perimeter. For 150 guests, some venues/caterers were quoting 3-4 times that. Also, we got to keep the leftovers :)
