    A very tight one... lol...

    Trouble is we are trying to buy a house at the same time. We're looking to spend no more than $7000 on the venue (that includes food) for 80 people.

    you are going to have a tuff time with that budget, how about do a quickie in vegas and do the big wedding when the funds are there. when i got married we were on a budget and ended up spending 15,000, more than what we wanted to spend but what can you do, just think a wedding cake's start at like 800 for the amount of people you are going to have.

    Check with your local VFW.

    Seriously - In our area, they have a huge hall & kitchen. They'll cater the reception, they have a bar & will serve. All you gotta do is decorate, get a DJ (if you're into dancing), etc. It's not fancy - but good enough to have a good old time and celebrate.

    I had my wedding at a local church and the reception at the VFW.

    VFW = Veterans of Foreign Wars
    http://www.vfw.org/

    Hard to explain what it is and I'm just pulling this off the top of my head.
    It's an organization - similar to American Legion, Amvets, etc. They have organization 'posts' all over the country and cater to our military heros/veterans. They do all sorts of things for our Veterans & community.

    You could also check with your local American Legion (if you have 'em) or look into your local Fire halls also.
