Get married in the Finger Lakes for under $10,000

We hear it all the time! "I want to spend less than $10,000 on my wedding". Is it possible? YES! Is it possible anywhere? No....

Choosing your venue is the first step. Your venue sets the tone for your wedding, and it's also the frame for your budget. If you choose a plain venue, you might need to invest more in flowers. If you choose a casual venue, you can entertain your guests with lawn games, and plastic cups will not feel out of place!

We know of one place where you can get married, all in, on a SATURDAY, for under $10,000, for up to 80 guests. Cedarwood Event Venue!

Here's how it would break down:

Venue Fee = $3,500

Includes indoor seating on rose gold chiavari chairs and banquet tables with white floor length linens, outdoor seating on picnic tables, three stages for your DJ / band / sweetheart table. You have access to the property from 11am to 11pm - ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all included! Non-Saturdays are $2,500.

Food = starts at $40/person

For both cocktail hour and dinner meal. We can offer up to 3 bite-sized appetizers and a buffet with 2 entrees and 3 sides.

Beverage = starts at $15/person

We have several beverage packages to choose from. We have open bar and consumptino bar packages. Our basic draft beer and wine packages are only $15/person. You could even skip this altogether and go for a cash bar. Or if you know exactly how much you want to spend - do a consumption bar! It will be open bar for your guests until the amount you chose is reached.

Band = starts at $500

Did you know that bands can actually be less expensive than a DJ? You're probably thinking - that's NOT possible - BUT....WEDDING DJs are more expensive than DJs....local bands are actually less!! You can get a band to play for about $500 for 3 hours. Your own personal concert! We can help you identify a great band that fits your personality!

Dessert = $200

We can get a cake and some desserts from Tastes of Wine Country Cafe - they have very reasonable pricing - or you could even go to Wegman's!
