Okay ladies, I've still got a year and a half before my wedding but I'm a big planner. We went and checked out our first venue today. I liked it, it was very nice, the people were sweet and really assured us we would have nothing to worry about on our special day. However, we do have a budget, one that's probably on the low side ($10,000) and when our meeting came to an end we were told the cost would be around $8,000 to quote on the higher side. The quote includes the following:
$3-4k for set-up, clean-up, tent, linens, florals, glassware, cake, chairs, pa system....pretty much everything besides what I will tell you in a second
Then another $3-4k to pay herself and employees
What this does not include is our DJ, caterer, bartender, my dress, accessories, my fiances suit, our childrens outits, limo, photographer, bass player for ceremony, invitations, thank yous, save the dates, gifts.
Adding everything in my head, if we were to choose this venue I can see it totalling somewhere around $15,000 and thats just not what we want to spend. So, here is where I need your advice. I want to find a place where we can have our ceremony and reception with an outdoor ceremony and possibility of outdoor reception as well. Do you ladies have any suggestions? It's a must that we stay within budget but I still want us to have the wedding we ae dreaming about.
If you read this far thank you so much!
