Finding anything inexpensive in San Francisco’s general vicinity, from housing to wedding invitations to cheaper gas, only gets more difficult every day. Because of this, we know finding cheap wedding venues can seem insurmountable. Is it any wonder so many people choose to cross the Golden Gate and go outside the Bay Area to celebrate their weddings?
