Now let’s check out some awesome tips and tricks for hiring your wedding venue in Manchester!

How to find great affordable wedding reception venues in Manchester:

  • Head off the beaten path – Some areas of Manchester are more sought after than others when it comes to weddings. Try looking for venues in Manchester’s less popular neighbourhoods – some of them are full of hidden gems that are just waiting to be discovered (and these wedding spaces are usually inexpensive, too).
  • Hire the venue off-season – Winter wedding venue hire rates in Manchester are usually much lower. If you want to stick to getting married in the warmer part of the year, think of hosting your wedding on a day other than Saturday. This can help you save up to 50%. Imagine getting the same service for half price – now that’s a low cost event!
  • Hire a smaller space – When organising a wedding for 70 people, there’s no point in hiring a venue that’s made to accommodate twice as many guests. Manchester is full of inexpensive small wedding venues, especially in the city centre. With Tagvenue you’re sure to find one that fits your needs and won’t break the bank at the same time.
  • Look for special deals – We can help you find a ton of cheap wedding venue packages in Manchester. These offers may include food and drink menus, decorations, entertainment options and, naturally, private hire of the wedding venue. Many wedding packages are an excellent value for money – and we’re here to help you choose from among these.
  • Search for spaces with a BYO policy – Drinks make up the lion’s share of wedding costs. Luckily, many wedding venues allow you to bring your own alcohol. This can help you save a lot, but before you calculate the cost, check if the venue charges a corkage fee.
  • Focus on dry hire venues – This is one of the most convenient options when it comes to cheap wedding venues. Booking a dry hire venue means you only pay for the space. Organising the catering, the decor, the entertainment and other aspects of the event is entirely up to you. This way, you can make your wedding celebration the cheapest!
  • Think outside the box – There are many cheap spaces in Manchester you might not consider for a wedding reception, but it turns out they make fantastic wedding venues without spending a fortune. We’re listing some of our favourites below.

The best types of cheap wedding venues in Manchester:

  • Warehouse spaces – for those who love an industrial vibe and embrace creative decor solutions. A warehouse can be easily turned into a wedding wonderland – think Edison bulbs, candles and fairy lights. All of the above are inexpensive and will help you add a really charming touch to your special day. There are numerous inexpensive warehouse venues in Manchester, so you'll be spoilt for choice!
  • Pubs – this cheap wedding venue type is a popular choice for laid back receptions in Manchester. Many pubs offer function rooms big enough for both dining and dancing. And who doesn’t love to celebrate over a nice cold pint, after all?
  • Community halls – if you don’t want to reduce the size of your guest list and you’re particularly on a budget, this is probably the best pick. Community halls are one of the cheapest wedding venues in Manchester. What’s more, they’re also spacious and easy to customise, as most of them are available for dry hire. What’s not to like?

Janette A.
Booked Parlor Bar at Oddfellows On The Park
We have booked Oddfellows On The Park as our wedding venue and we couldn't have chosen any better place for our special day. The venue is beautiful, staff very nice. Hayley, the Venue Manager was very helpful with all the paperwork before the wedding and Liam, Events Operation Manager has been absolute star of the night, saving the day with our car hiccup. He's been very professional, the ceremony room and wedding breakfast room were set up really nice, even though we haven't spent fortune for room decorations. Liam dealt with our ceremony songs as well, all timings were perfect. He made us feel all at ease and we enjoyed every second of our wedding. The food was an amazing too. The Chef Ryan has made loads of effort to prepare fantastic looking and delicious meal for our wedding breakfast. We had booked 2 rooms, 1 before the wedding night and then wedding suite. Both of them were beautiful, clean and comfortable. We are very thankful to all at Oddfellows On The Park for an amazing wedding experience.
