If you are looking around for a venue and you dont have a few thousand to fork out, I have the answer. Try a country club (I am not talking about the ones in an apartment complex), these are located in neighborhoods, golf coarses etc. The one I found is in an upper class neighborhood (kinda in an older community) but it is just as pretty as these other venues that cost around 5k or up. Most of them have huge halls, with nice lighting, vaulted ceilings, large dance floors, waterfalls and much more. It gets even better, most of them are free except they require you to purchase some type of the food from them. So you can get some hors' devours, drinks or whatever, there are many combinations to use this to your advantage and save you tons of money. Most of them also let you bring in food, cake and drinks from other places as well. On top of that, a lot is included: tables, chairs, linens, chair covers, china, servers (only for what you order from them). Check them out!
