  • Mine's not final, just trying to work it all out - we're trying to decide if it's worth the extra $$ to add 1/2 hour on to our wedding. $200 for the venue, TBD for the DJ.

    We're on a tight schedule but it's not 100% set. We have about. 30-45 minutes of wiggle room.

    After that we will come home, change, go help our wonderful volunteers finish breaking down and cleaning up. We'll get dinner with a few close friends and family members and then most of us will head back to our house for some adult beverage, games of pool, music and a bonfire. Then bedtime, aaahhh!
