Cheap New Jersey Wedding Venues
Find the cheap wedding ideas you are looking for:
New Jersey is a big, busy State with very contrasting
landscapes from Metropolitan areas to countryside and also beaches, so you are
really spoilt for choice as to the style of wedding you want. There are also so
many options when it comes to choosing your wedding venue too.
However the really big popular wedding venues come at a
hefty price range – we are talking $150 per person which is mad expensive when
you probably want more than just a couple of people at your reception. Saying
that, you can save money by having a Sunday wedding and also look at February
and March as you can save around $30 per person, plus wedding venues in
Southern NJ are more often cheaper in the North.
There are of course cheaper options …
New Jersey State Parks
I love weddings held in State Parks as you are in a stunning
location where everyone loves to be and you are so lucky in New Jersey as there
are so many to choose from.
As well as a beautiful location, you will also want to be
able to relax and enjoy your day too, which means that you will need to think
about catering for your wedding. One relatively inexpensive way is to have a
picnic or a barbecue.
So I thought it would be a good ideas to use the
official list from NJ.gov of state parks with picnic facilities;
- Barnegat Lighthouse,
- Bass River,
- Bull's Island,
- Byrne (formerly Lebanon),
- Cape May,
- Delaware & Raritan Canal,
- Fort Mott,
- High Point,
- Island Beach,
- Jenny Jump,
- Kittatinny Valley,
- Monmouth Battlefield,
- Princeton Battlefield,
- Round Valley,
- Spruce Run,
- Washington Crossing,
- Washington Rock,
You will need to contact each State Park to check availability
and you will need to obtain a permit from them too. It would also be a good
idea to have a backup if the weather isn’t great. Some of the parks do have
venues you can rent.
Affordable New Jersey Wedding Venues
- Courtyard on Main, in Freehold, NJ is a really
affordable venue which holds up to 200 people. They don’t have a liquor license
which means you take your own and this will save you loads.
- Montclair Museum,
NJ this is a really popular wedding venue and has won quite a few industry
awards, which is great but it means that there will be high demand which can
lead to high prices. The cost of hiring the venue for your ceremony and also
reception – round about 5 hours in total will be from $2000 to $4000 depending
on when you want to book. You would then need to add catering costs on top of
that, however they do allow you to bring your own drinks, which will save
- Sayen House & Garden in Hamilton, NJ. Love
this venue as it is so pretty and it would look fab in your wedding photos,
plus the price is amazing too. It holds up to 100-150 people. The cost is $1000
if you are a non-resident of Hamilton Township but only $550 if you are! This would
include one hour for your ceremony and then 4 hours for your reception. You do have
to use their caterers, there is a choice of two and they seem reasonable.
- The Women’s Club, Engelwood NJ, is another
pretty venue with gardens and here you will also be able to bring your own
caterers, florists, entertainment – everything!
- The Woman's Club of Maplewood is another club
where you can rent the venue but I haven’t been able to find any online contact
details. My understanding is that it costs $900 for 7 hours, which is a great
price for such a fab venue. You will probably need to knock on their door to find
make sure you check out the many great restaurants in New Jersey, quite often
you will be able to hire the restaurant for the day if they are normally closed
