My Fiance and I are trying to find a barn venue close to Omaha, NE to do a wedding around September 27, 2014.
I checked a few places so far and would really appreciate if anyone has some insight because at this point, I am getting worried that we won't be able to find the venue we need.
Here is what I am looking for:
1) ANY barn/rustic themed building where we could do a reception inside (if necessary - we will do it inside)
2) A reasonably priced venue
3) A venue that allows us to bring in our own food/cake.
Here is what I have already discovered:
Scottlyn Yard: Closed due to safety code issues...man I spoke with doesn't know when they will be back up and running.
The Lodge: Too expensive! They charge a MINIMUM of $7,000 for food and drinks....don't allow you to bring in your own food. Also, they require that 30 rooms are rented at the lodge in order to fufill your contract. Which, doesnt work because all of the people will be from Omaha, and I doubt we could get 30 people to stay @ the lodge, especially b/c the price per room is around $140/night.
Glass Chapel & Banquet Barn: They only have Fridays and Sundays left and its located in Shelby, IA...which is close to Omaha.
Ackerhurt Dairy Barn: Closed
Bellevue Berry Farm and Pumpkin Ranch: Don't have 9/27/13 open for the barn. They only have the moose lodge room available....lets just say it is NOT ideal for a wedding.... Other than that, the prices are okay. Its about $22 a head and that includes the price of the room with each persons meal. They have to provide the beverages (alcohol).
Does anyone else know of a place with a rustic feel, that wont be too expensive, open in september???
I appreciate it.
