AFFORABLE Venues in Denver

It seems to me that everywhere I look, the prices are outrageous. I want to have a beautiful wedding, but I don't want to have to give an arm, a leg, and my firstborn child. Any reccommedations?

  • Do you have an idea of what your budget is?

  • My fiance and I will be paying for most of the wedding ourselves, so the price range I want to stay around for everything is like $3000.
  • I'd think your best bet would be a national park or somewhere up in the mountains to take advantage of the natural beauty.  I'm not familiar with the cost of tent rentals, but that could be a way of having the reception in the same park as the ceremony (or at least having it as a backup just in case the weather doesn't cooperate).

  • A couple of other ways to cut costs:

    Having the wedding on an unconventional day, like a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.  Granted your number of yes RSVPs will likely be much lower, but a lot of venues have economy packages if you go with one of those days.

    Doing a cake and punch reception only.  The reception would need to be during a non-mealtime though.  But if you did this, you'd save on catering costs which tend to add up quickly.

  • $3000 just for the venue?  We are having ours at the Chateaux at Fox Meadows for $2000.  That's the facility fee so it includes all of the rental items.  The prices will vary depending on season and day of the week.

  • The art galleries on Santa Fe are reasonably priced. I really liked artwork network and Space gallery
  • I second the Space Gallery. We looked there and LOVED it. The only downfall was it couldn't comfortably fit the size of my guest list, and there was MINIMAL room for a caterer to come in.

    If your budget is $3000 including food, you may need to look at city venues that are fairly cheap, or even free (parks, rec centers) as hiring a caterer (assuming your planning to) will suck up most of the $3000.

    Another way to go is just having a punch/cake reception. Lots of people have those for just a few hundred bucks.

    $3000 is definitely do-able, it all depends on what your willing to sacrifice on.
  • If you are okay with an outdoor wedding, The Stone House in Lakewood is nice and inexpensive.
