Venues in/around Athens?

Hi folks, I'm recently engaged and planning a wedding on a strict budget. Does anyone know of any beautiful places in or around Athens that are budget friendly for a wedding with about 150 guests?

    The botanical gardens and Day Chapel are absolutely beautiful! I'm not sure about how the price falls, but know that they do offer discount prices for off-days (mid-week, Sundays). They do book up pretty quickly though! Another place to look into would be the Thompson House in Bogart. You are allowed to bring your own caterer so may be a bit easier on the budget.
    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the tip! I'm on the waiting list at the Botanical Gardens and I just emailed The Thompson House!

    It's not especially beautiful, but we're getting married in Elberton, GA, which is about 45 mins east of Athens. It's a cute little town with a nice downtown area, a few nice parks, and the country club, which we are paying just $150 for the venue fee. They have a required caterer but she quoted us at about $15/person for BBQ, fried chicken, 3 sides, and non alcoholic drinks.

    I've been to a wedding at the Elbert County Country club--it was beautiful!

    I check the Thompson house and their rate was $5100 for a Saturday or $4100 for a Sunday....that's out of my budget for a venue, but it looks beautiful!!
