Hello Knotties!! 

My fiance and I are recently engaged (2/5/14!!) and we are looking for the "perfect venue".  Does anyone have any suggestions of BYC/BYOB venues? 

I've looked at all the places I could find both here and on wedding wire, wedding bee, and rustic bride, but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask!  

Ideally the site fee would be $4k or less - thanks!

  • Congratulations!! Try looking at the following: tarrywile mansion, lounsbury house, Webb barn... Those were the top three in my search!

    @Aimie425 suggest I'd saw the Webb Barn, I am actually getting married there in May and they fit both of the criteria you listed above, and depending your catering you may be able to BYOB or have them provide.

  • thanks ladies!
  • Lighthouse Point in New Haven fits all the criteria!
  • testas in southington offers  a package where you can bring your own food in by a licenced cater but i think its only for ethnic weddings though
  • pinnacle view
    counting down to the big day
  • Wickham Park in Manchester.  We brought in our own caterer and our own booze.
    We welcomed our girls on 11.7.12 @ 40w0d!

  • Branford House in Groton is amazing and gorgeous! They're in season site fee is $4000 - $4500 but $2500i ish in season! Definitely worth looking into.
  • thank you all!
  • We got married at the Webb Barn and it was amazing. $3,500 site fee, for a Saturday.
  • We're getting married at the Scandinavian Club in Fairfield which has a very reasonable fee. Here's my list of unique venues in Fairfield County that I rarely see listed. I'm pretty sure these fit your criteria, too: 
    • The Fairfield Historical Society, Fairfield
    • Burr Mansion, Fairfield
    • The Beardsley Zoo Carousel Room, Bridgeport
    • Downtown Cabaret, Bridgeport
    • Gallagher Mansion, Norwalk 
    • The Stamford Nature Center, and our rehearsal dinner venue 
    • The Discovery Museum, Bridgeport 

    Just remember to leave plenty of room in your budget for rentals; depending on the place you might need a tent, linens, chairs, plates, glasses, silverware etc. and that can quickly turn a $30 a head catering tab to a $60 a head catering tab.
