Every venue I see holds 150-300 people. Atleast all the really pretty venues that I see in the Pittsburgh region. However, I don’t think I’ll have over 60 people. my family all lives out of state, but most are either old or have 5 kids, so I’m planning on a smaller wedding since half of them won’t be able to make it, I’m guessing. I’m inviting 125 people in total. I’ve found so many venues I like and then it’s depressing when I see I don’t think I’ll have enough people for it Smiley sad I wanted a big wedding so I’m kinda sad /: I really don’t want to settle for a restaurant or just a hall. I want it somewhere really pretty like in a barn or historic estate ...the money isn’t the problem /: where can I find something beautiful that will be for 60 people !?! Anyone??

    Have you used the “Venues” tab here and searched your area? What about a historic house, winery, aquarium, zoo, resort?

    Take a look at eventective.com or peerspace.com which have smaller venues not on the popular lists.

    Do these places have a minimum? Have you asked them at all about smaller wedding sizes? If they have had any weddings at all this past year then they probably can accommodate a smaller size.

    Yes some do have a minimum. Others I’m waiting on a response but I’m just worried it would look silly with too little people

    I understand from a business standpoint to have a minimum, but not everyone has larger families and lots of friends. 🙄 Good luck though.
    Also a lot of wineries can hold smaller numbers and look beautiful

    Have you looked at any of the JAM catering venues. They have a lot of great outdoor and historic venues throughout the area. Ours is at Welkinweir which is both a historic home and an arboretum. It's beautiful! They also are flexible with the menu and allow you to easily pick and choose what you want included.
