10 Affordable Wedding and Reception Venues in Indianapolis
May 13th, 2013

In April, was commissioned to help assist Indy Star Columnist, Whitney Smith (aka. "FRUgal") in researching and compiling Indy's most affordable, yet still luxurious, wedding and reception venues for the budget-savvy bride.

To keep everyone on the same page, the following venue criteria was set forth in advance:

  • Venue must accomodate both wedding and reception.
  • Venue must accomdate at least 100 guests.
  • Venues must consider pricing for a Saturday wedding/reception.
  • Catering service must be for at least a three-course, plated meal.
  • Sales tax and gratuity not included. 


Of the 17 wedding/reception venues submitted; 10 were chosen.  Congratulations to the chosen Indianapolis Wedding/Reception venues.  A big "thanks" to all the venues who submitted on short notice and over spring break time in Indianapolis.  We understand how difficult it was to pull together that info when you are short-staffed and on a tight deadline!
