Venue help!

Hellio fellow philadelphians...

i got engaged about a month ago and I am trying to begin my wedding planning but Ii am having a realy hard time. between a mother with too many opinions and a guest list that is larger than I expected I can't seem to find the right place.

Can you give me any recommendations for reception venues in philadelphia that can host 200 people for a cost that isn't a veritable down payment for a house?? I am beginning to think that this doesn;t exist...

    Are you looking at a Friday or Sunday?

    Off season or peak season

    Look at the Manor House @ Commonwealth

    You have a lot of options for $160/person.  Where have you looked?  What style are you going for, ballroom, museum...?  When you say "in Philadelphia", do you mean in the city or are the burbs included in that?  You can definitely do a city wedding on a Saturday in your price range, no doubt.  I did for much less than that.

    I'm going to suggest to you what I did for myself.  Go to a bookstore and get a venue guide.  Most Philadelphia wedding magazines have one in the back.  There you can find venues in the Philadelpiha area and many of them include price ranges.

    We chose Drexelbrook in Drexel Hill... costs about $100-$120 per person. Depends on which day and which entree you pick though. Good luck!

    If I'm not mistaken, Tendenza is Cescaphe.  They're on the higher end pricewise but totally worth it b/c they offer enough food to feed a small country.  I'm not sure of their prices though.   I almost picked the Ballroom.  Tendenza wasn't open when I was searching.
