February Wedding Reception Locations in Buffalo/Southtowns

Hi,I am recently engaged and wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a reception site in the Buffalo or the Southtowns for a late February wedding.

    What kind of reception place are you looking for (hotel ballroom, unique, etc.) and for how many people?  Having an idea of what you want, or at least what you don't want, will help you narrow the locations down.

    I wanted a hotel ballroom or someplace very close to a hotel.  I ended up going with Millennium, but also loved Pearl Street.  If I didn't have 2 friends have their receptions there 2 years in a row before my wedding I probably would have gone there without even looking at anyplace else.

    Like PP said we will need more information to help you like bugdet, what you are looking for etc. But here are some places I would visit.

    -Salavatores
    -Samuel's
    -Lucarellis
    -Heart Stone
    -Millennium
    -Harry's Harbour
    -Adam's Mark
    -Marriott or any big chain, Hilton, etc.
    -Pearl Street
    -Rich's Atrium (mine is here)
    To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be. - Unknown Why is electricity so expensive these days? Why does it cost so much for something I can make with a balloon and my hair? - Dennis Miller

    Thank you for your replys! We are probrobly looking at about 200 people. I would love to find a place that was unique that not a lot of people would think to have a wedding at. There have been many weddings between our two families recently, so I want mine to stand out! 

    And also, have you heard much about the Avanti Mansion?

    Avanti Mansion- I heard a lot of bad things about this place. They are super controlling and don't let you choose what you want. They are bad about returning phone calls as well. This is just what I remember for this board, not personal experience.

    I also wanted my wedding somewhere different. That is how I ended up at Rich's Atrium. I had one cousin get married there but he is my dad age so I wasn't at the wedding. Here are a few more places, less common. Both location are so beautiful.

    Marcy Casino
    Tonawanda Castle

    Avanti's payment is minimum 8k$ for a wedding. Marcy's, I believe hold up to 120 for a sitdown dinner. We're having ours at Protocol on Transit. You could also try the Historic Society, art gallery, maybe try other places that are public venues/attractions.

    check some of the mansions and buildings downtown...a lot of them have really unique spaces.  also maybe think about central terminal if they're going to rehab that in the next couple years.
    pearl street is also adding on some great 'wedding' spaces.


    southtown ideas might be 'la galleria' or 'klocs' ....those were nice when i visited them.

    check out pearl street!

    they have pacakges for winter weddings - it almost made us switch to a winter wedding because of all the $$ we would have saved!

    We're having ours at the Park Country Club. It's beautiful inside, very historic looking and could be beautiful in winter with the fireplaces, etc. Also holds lots of people!

    For southtowns, no one has mentioned Ilio DiPaolos, Michaels, McKinley, or Brierwood Country Club.   I went to a wedding at Brierwood a few years ago, and they opened up the bowling alley for us, it was so cool.  I'm going to a wedding at Ilio's in a few weeks, I can let you know how that goes.  I have been there for many other events, and it's definately different from other venues.  McKinley has a hotl built into it, which is great for out of town guests.  They also have a separate night club area where you can party and continue to have fun even after the reception.

  • Ashleyallen,
    Can you or anyone else tell me how your wedding went at Park Country Club? I just love that building but didn't know if it's really expensive or any negatives associated with the staff or food... Thank you!
