Hello All! Im looking to get married October 2011 and need a venue that will hold about 250 people, I have a budget of about $850 that includes tables and chairs with the venue. If anyone knows of any spaces that are closer to the west end I would really appreciate your help! Thanks!
Hi cvences21, I've looked at many venues in the area - the cost to rent chairs alone is a minimum of $1.50 per chair (which would be $375 plus taxes and delivery alone). Most venues are at least several thousand dollars. One of the lesser-expensive options in the West End that will hold that capacity (that I know of) is The Place at Innsbrook. Let me know if I can help with anything as I've just recently looked at a bunch of different venues (we ended up selecting the Westin Hotel).
I would try the local parks and recs. They rent for SUPER cheap. We really wanted to get married at the new banquet hall at deep run park ( beautiful inside!) It was booked. But I believe at the time the rental was only 500 and it included tables and chairs. All the other parks in both Richmond, Henrico and Chesterfield allow you to rent facilities ( such as the Carilon) at a really low cost.
