Hello everybody, my fiance and i are having a hard time trying to find a venue that allows outside catering that is also reasonably priced. We live in Rancho Cucamonga, California and are expecting 115-150 people in attendance.

We mainly want a venue that allows outside catering because we want to cater lucilles bbq. We are hoping to stay under 12-15k for the whole event.

Any suggestions on venues? Thank you!!

    Welcome to the WeddingWire community Nicholas! It’s so great to have you join us!! Congratulations on your engagement!

    Have you considered asking the caterer that you are interested in where they have previously worked with weddings? They should have a really good idea as to what venues in your area allow outside catering.

    What style of venue are you looking for?

    Have you checked out Reptacular Ranch yet? I know they're a very DIY venue.

    Have you looked at the center on Milliken and Baseline? We are getting having our reception at planes of fame air museum in Chino, we have to bring in everything but the kitchen sink.

    The Newland Barn in Huntington Beach and Riverbed Farm in Anaheim are both super DIY and REALLY cheap (well cheap for SoCal, lol!)

    We our doing ours at 27 acres estates in Alpine. So kinda far from you but might be worth it to look at it.
