Very High Reception Catering Cost
My wedding budget is $15,500 and my guest count is about 175-200. My ideal reception location is somewhere with large doors or windows and a nice view of the ocean or a lake. So I have been looking at hotels by the beach and golf/country clubs. I have looked at about 5 places so far and the lowest cost per person I've seen is $95. If I have $95 for my 200 guest cost.....that's my entire budget and more JUST for the reception venue food and the few things that has been included in the catering packages (e.g white linen and seat covers, 2-4 open bar, the cake....) Now I do plan to negotiate with my venues as much as possible but that's a long way to get to about $40 max which is what I want to pay. I'm willing to do a lunch menu so it's a little cheaper so PLEASE
1) List any reception venues that fit my ideal look and has lower catering cost (Preferred locations close to South Florida: Ft Lauderdale, Pompano, Plantation, Davie....)
2) List any reception venues that fit my ideal look and allows outside catering (Preferred locations close to South Florida: Ft Lauderdale, Pompano, Plantation, Davie....)
2) Let me know do most of these places list the prices this high but do work with you to meet your budget
Thank you so much!!!!! I'm trying for this process not stressful so your help is greatly appreciated.
