I don't know where to start
I am feeling very overwhelmed. I have only been engaged for two weeks. But we are thinking of getting married in a almost a year and someone told me that it is good to book a venue a year out to ensure the place you want. I have the guest list down. And a rough budget. I have started calling and emailing venues but I have found that the venues listed under $ on the knot are responding that they cost 2,000 just for the wedding and not the reception. I seems like every place I call has hidden fees, like renting extra rooms or paying for napkins. Is this typical? What type of charges should I make sure are inculded in a venue? Where do i begin looking for an affordable venue?
