We are getting married at the Festivities Event Center in El Reno. It is $1500.00 for the wedding and reception. You get the venue from 10 in the morning until midnight. They provide all the table and chairs for the event. I have heard the state capitol is free. You can always look at parks or something depending on when you are planning on getting married.
I own an event and wedding planning business and I am very familiar with the facilities in the area. There are several things you need to think about - what will your headcount be? will you serve alcohol and how far will your guests drive afterward?
You need to know that the state capital turns off the air conditioning at 5:00p, and you have to be out by 9:30 (unless the have changed that).
Why don't you give me a call and we can discuss some of your options. There are several facilities that would probably work for you, and I can be a huge help in showing you how to stay within a fixed budget. I can show you where and how to save money, and still get the wedding you want.
