Today, someone in our Facebook group asked if there are any wedding venues in Wilmington, NC that's under $5000. Absolutely, if you aren't in Help!! I'm planning a wedding (Wilmington NC & Surrounding Area), definitely check it out.

Visit the Venue's website or call for pricing. I highlighted posts/reviews so it will give you an idea of what they're like.

Halyburton Park Event Center

"We just booked Halyburton Park event center for august. Went and toured it today. most affordable venue we’ve come across and it fit our vibe for outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. For 8 hour rental of the spaces(setup time, ceremony, reception, and breakdown time)came out to a little over $1,500 ($300 of which is refundable) and they provide tables and chairs for reception. Definitely worth checking out."

Station No. 2

"We had our rehearsal dinner and wedding here and everything was absolutely perfect. Donna and Drew were so easy to work with the entire year leading up. Every vendor was able to fit in perfectly. We had a beautiful intimate ceremony, and the space was phenomenal. Our ceremony and dances were outside, cocktail hour was in the lot next door, and dinner and dancing were inside! We used the suite to get ready and stayed there the night of the wedding and it was exactly what we needed. Cannot recommend this venue enough!!"

River Landing Country Club

"We held our wedding at the River Lodge at River Landing and I could not have asked for a better team to help through the process. Carrie was the absolute BEST. Carrie was super supportive, professional, and friendly though the whole process. She will walk you though the whole process and how everything works. Shelli helped us with booking rooms for our big day and was really helpful as well. When you book with River Landing you can pick your own vendors for your big day except for food and beverage. But let me tell you our food was AMAZING we did the Italian Buffett and my husband and I loved everything and so did our guests. The serving staff was perfect! They were so friendly and really made the day special! Thank you guys so much for the most perfect day!"

Maven Monroe

"Interested in this adorable venue? Do yourself a favor and reach out to Kelly at Maven Monroe, it will be one of the best choices you can make as a host. The venue is absolutely gorgeous, includes two options for getting-ready suites that come stocked for your morning-of, and perfect for an intimate experience without ever feeling cramped. As of 2023, the indoor space (and super cute front) is complimented by the Mimosa Yard, a back patio perfect for enjoying Wilmington weather all year round. (Can't you just see your guests enjoying s'mores al fresco as a sweet treat at the end of the evening?)

As special as the venue itself is Kelly Landers, Maven's incredibly sweet, thoughtful owner and operator. She's the cherry on top of the adorable cupcake that is Maven Monroe. Not only does Kelly have a great eye, perfectly curating a classic glam aestetic that is sure to wow your guests, but really, Kelly will help you make your event one to remember. She's quick to respond to questions, full of helpful ideas, and a truly gracious event planning resource!"

The Nook

"From the first time I reached out to Beth at The Nook she’s made everything stress free so I could focus on just being happy. There was always an open line of communication and a care for detail.

Beth and Carey are warm and welcoming. I’m so glad we had them on our day. They’re wonderful people who truly care and I’ve come to adore them.

During the reception my husband and I received so many compliments on the ceremony and how beautifully Carey was at uniting us.

Thanks again for helping with one of the happiest days of our lives, we appreciate you both!"
