2. Affordable & Flexible

  • Marina Village is considered one of the most affordable & best venues by the bay in San Diego. There are many styles of rooms to choose from for every budget and size.  They have 13 rooms that can accommodate anywhere from 50 ppl to 350 ppl.  Prices range from $500 for the smallest room to $3200 for the largest.  Weekday weddings are discounted from their already great rates.
  • They provide the space, tables & chairs. You are free to transform the rooms to your liking.  Each room can be easily decorated to fit the style of any wedding.  Pinterest queens, I’m looking at you! Here’s your chance to plan the wedding of your dreams. They even have someone on site who can help with lighting and tulle decorations.
  • There are two outdoor ceremony spaces. You can have your ceremony & reception there or just the reception.  One cool thing is that if you book both, you’ll get a discount for the ceremony space.  Many couples find it very convenient to have the ceremony & reception area just steps away.
  • Another great thing about Marina Village is that you are free to use your own vendors. Many venues don’t allow this and require you to choose from their pre-selected list of vendors.
  • You can host your own bar! Awesome, right?  This is like a “you had me at hello” moment.  With alcohol being one of the biggest expenses of a wedding, who doesn’t love the idea of being able to bring your own and save a TON of money!
