Nice DIY wedding locations in Tampa, FL?

by DIY wedding planner on December 10, 2011

I am seeking a nice place to have a DIY wedding. There are countless beautiful wedding venues with their own packages. They all seem amazing, but they are over my budget. My Maid of Honor’s father is a photographer, and one of my Bridesmaid’s father a caterer. As you can see, there are many places I can cut corners. I am looking for a place where I can coordinate everything myself, I just need the place to do it! The wedding will be in July, so outdoors is too risky. I would like to have the option to take pictures outdoors if the weather permits, but the ceremony and reception needs to be indoors. The place needs to be able to accommodate at least 100 – 150 guests. Ideally, I would like it to be overlooking some sort of body of water (ie. ocean, lake, etc.), but I won’t be too picky. Any good ideas?
Kadel, thank you for your reply! I am looking for something much nicer though. It’s just that most places with packages are $100 – 200 per person, and I have so many guests. I have under 10k to spend, but I can’t use it all on the reception. I would gladly use a hotel, but all that I have seen require their own packages. I know there are many neighborhood club houses as well… any more ideas anyone?

I would check out the VFW on Madeira Beach. It has a water view and I imagine it is cheap.
