I'm not sure if you live in one of those areas or not, but even if you don't, you might want to check and see what community centers there are.  We had our reception last night at a community center in Mission Viejo about 10-15 miles south of Costa Mesa and because we are residents, we paid only $40 per hour!  The non-resident rate is still very inexpensive at $90 per hour and the venue we had was gorgeous!


Other options if you are looking for or ok with outdoor settings, are to look at city parks and beaches.  Those have areas that can be rented for pretty inexpensively from what I can see.

http://cityofmissionviejo.org/DepartmentPage.aspx?id=1572  That's the link.  They didn't cater, but I had an amazing caterer that cost me about $13 per person (prior to tax/tip).  I got compliments all night long on the wonderful food!  :)  My caterer was Kitty's Catering (http://www.kittyscatering.com/).  I recommend both very highly!!  :D

@dodgercpkl - Congrats on your wedding!  What time did you have to shut-down if you don't mind me asking?

Sahar - I was thinking about that when you made your other post... I'm pretty sure we had to be out of there by 11pm.  It might be worth calling and asking though.  :)  It's a gorgeous venue and the staff are very helpful.
