So, finally after 7 months of trying to pick a venue and thinking that I almost found *the one*, after moving the entire thing to Richmond-and then back to Charlottesville..I fell in love with King Family Vineyard. The part I didn't fall in love with--$6500 for Saturday room rental. (Which I feel is fair for what you get, just seemingly over my budget). They advertise $3000-$5000 for Friday and Sundays..big gap in price, so I'm not sure exactly how they decide..
I was wondering if there were any other knotties out there that had priced out a wedding there--including linens and place settings for about 120 guests? I'm trying to figure out if I should splurge for the Saturday rental and maybe cut back the food cost or book the venue on a Friday instead..? Or just get an overall feeling if I will be able to manage.
I'm trying to keep my budget in the $15,000-$20,000 range..
