I am looking for affordable location to host my wedding reception for about 100 guests on a very tight budget! Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Try your smaller local churches, VFW post are pretty cheap to. smaller suburbs are cheaper. I live about 20 miles out of our big city. Go Packers! (LOL) We have a building called the barn, it is going to cost me $100.00 for the building, if I go into the city for a park it will cost $500.00. Hope you have a wonderful day.
I'm planning my wedding in the Baltimore area in September 2011. I need a cheap wedding hall/reception location that includes tables, chairs, etc. We are pretty much doing everything ourselves except the food. I have a private caterer (family friend) so it has to have a full kitchen and allow an outside caterer to come in. I have one place in mind that I found using this site, but I'd like others to compare it to. Thanks so much in advance!

Since I didn't get any feedback...after searching and searching I've found these places, they are pretty much all under $2000 and include tables and chairs, most allow you to bring in your own caterer.
The Other Barn
The Meeting House
Quiet Waters Park
Liriodendron Mansion- a little farther out
Kittamaqundi community church
Westminster Hall- but it's located in Baltimore
That is all I can remember off the top of my head, I have a few more I've found but I'll have to post them later, hope this helps anyone.

You could go to the park. Patapsco state park has pavilions. The Overhills Mansion in Catonsville has an outdoor area where people get married and a lovely indoor area for reception.
Try asking friends and people who you work with. Or call the Maryland visitors bureau. Maybe they have some information for what you need.
Do you attend a local church? The churches here in Catonsville and Arbutus don't really charge but have an arrangement where you donate to the church for the use of the building and pastor.
Try Paul's on the South River in Annapolis. It's on the water, and cheap but small.
