I need some input ladies... When we started planning this, we jumped on our cheapest option for the reception venue. Now I'm 2nd guessing our decision. There is another venue we both really like but it would cost an additional $400.00. And the only date they have available is July 12. I'll tell ya a bit about them. The venue we have booked is a community center, very nice and is only $550.00 for 12 hrs. has all the tables and chairs we'll need but we will have to set up and tear down. We will supply everything there (food, drinks, alcohol, entertainment etc.). But we would have to pay for another venue for a ceremony. The other place we really like is a community center, it is $800 for 4 hours but they set up and tear down. We have to do soft drinks thru them and they charge .50 per cup, if we bring in any alcohol or our guest do we have to have 2 certified bartenders which most are $60.00 and we could use their amphitheater for the ceremony for $150.00. Any thoughts or suggestions?
