ceremony and reception venue help!

I am having a difficult time trying to locate a venue that is reasonable in san antonio.  When I say reasonable I don't mean $5000.  We are wanting to bring in our own food and our own alcohol.  Being as I have never planned a wedding before I am a little lost.  We would like an outdoor ceremony short and sweet because it will be in December and then the reception to follow inside.  If anyone in SA or surrounding area has found a great hole in the wall venue please let me know!  Thanks and good luck with yours!

    Im sorry to hear you are having such a hard time locating a venue. It is very stressful!! We went for months before finding something more reasonable. We are in Odessa, TX. All venues here are 2,500 and above for holes in the wall. We happend upon the rehearsal hall of the Globe theatre on the grounds of Odessa College. It is costing us only $425.00!! We have a relative cooking food & MOG is decorating. Sometimes you have to go out the box to find what works for you.

    You might check out Faithville, it is in Spring Branch.  They are running a special for $2000.

    The Spanish Governor's Palace in downtown San Antonio has reasonable rates. Possibly La Villita Plaza. I think you go through the city park and recreation dept.
    Good luck.

    As far as the attendees paying for their drinks; try other options, like serving only one type of drink or wine only. Most guests don't look forward to paying for something at an event that they were invited to. Perhaps spending less on something else in the wedding to help cover the cost of beverages.
