Hiya Im looking for a nice venue to hold my wedding in Glasgow/surrounding next year. Were just back from the wedding show this afternoon and the trouble with all the places we liked there is that their inclusive of catering and bars ect we want to hold our reception some place where we can use our own caterers and have our own drinks (I have a voucher for drink so it would save us a fortune doing it this way) Anybody got any suggestions? Also do I need some sort of drink license or anything this way?

    You can pick up a temp drinks license pretty easily so I wouldn't worry about that.

    I am also looking for the same idea - I want a venue where I can do my own catering but somewhere between Glasgow and Perth.

    We want to have Haggis and Mash etc for our main meal but the venues are causing havoc with this plan!
    I miss using my infinite coupons at Tesco!
    2010 was the worst year ever :(
    But 2011 so far has been a lot of fun! :j

    you could rent a youth hostel but only in off season.- bring in your own catering (you need to prove you have food safety qualification i think if you do it yourself)
    and all your guests could stay 'free'
    unfortunately my dd wants a summer wedding and won't budge...

    my future mother in laws a caterer and she has contacts and friends who are willing to do it alot cheaper than anyone else has quoted me for it.
    someone else on here said something about buying all their wine ect from tesco and saving a fortune, that seems a better idea than £15 each person for 4 glasses that i was quoted with our meal in culcreuch castle,where id loved to have my wedding but im afraid no matter how cheap they seem there still abit out of our price range.

    any other suggestions? we want june next year so hostels out preferably somewhere nice looking as our local town hall just doesnt cut it for me lol. im a skint snob
  • Hi, my mum runs the Pollokshields Burgh Halls and it has all these facilities. You can bring in caterers and your own drink and its clean, in a nice park thats safe and about 2 miles out of the city centre.

    Their number is 0141 423 8858 and my mums name is Lesley Paddison. btw, it is a charitable organisation and therefore I am not advertising for profit in any way.

    Thanks,

    Alistair

    I was at a wedding here in October - the couple were married there too - It was a beautiful hall - One of the nicest I have seen! There was a few different room - they had a ceilidh - the hall was all lit up wth candles on all the ledges and on the tables - gorgeous would definaltely recommed it.

    I was at a fab wedding at Gartmore Village Hall - and we had rolls and sausage for the evening reception. The Bride's family supplied the (free) bar.
