One of the biggest ways to cut your costs for your wedding day is to find an affordable wedding venue, which in most cases is easier said than done. Finding a cost-effective venue to host your ceremony or reception can be one of the most challenging parts of the planning process, especially if you live in a major metropolitan city like New York or Los Angeles. If you're not lucky enough to have connections via family or friends with venue spaces in a big city, then you may have trouble finding something that fits the bill. That is, until now!
If you've ever spent hours researching venues, you'll know how annoying this process can be. Many venue websites don't even include pricing information! It's all so secretive! Well, I recently discovered a new website that can help you find unique venues at different price points in your city! It's kind of like the Airbnb of event/meeting venues, and it's called Peerspace.
From rustic farmhouses in the Bay Area, to chic NYC lofts, or historic buildings in Chicago, Peerspace makes it super simple to find and book a venue for your wedding related activity. With thousands of listings available in cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Austin and Seattle, there are unconventional spots that will match the style of any couple -from hipster breweries to contemporary art galleries, there is something for everyone.

How Peerspace works:
- Pick a location and the type of event you're hosting
- Peerspace gives recommendations based on the amenities you need, guest count, style, and your price range.
- Found a space you like? Connect directly with its owner to book it and receive additional information.
It's really that simple!
You can even browse possible locations using their handy map feature, so you can find a venue in a specific area of town. There are options to fit any size and shape of wedding you could imagine, from tiny intimate spaces to sprawling lofts that can hold hundreds of guests. And their venues aren't just perfect for weddings, but for all wedding-related events!
