My fiance and I are currently looking for a wedding venue in and around the GTA. While I can't say we are particularly picky, we just wanted something a bit more unique than your typical banquet hall. So far we've sort of favoured places that have "all inclusive pricing" ie. venue/menu/ all inclusive bar but I am curious whether going for a venue and getting it catered separately would be more or less expensive. Personally I thought steam whistle brewery looked like a super fun space but it really came with nothing (no tables, chairs, glasses, cutlery, plates). It just seems like a lot of extra fussing which sadly neither of us have the time or energy for. Other places like 2nd floor events come with a bar/ tables/ chairs/ cutlery etc but needs to be externally catered for food and charge a 15% landmark fee. It sounds like it would cost more per head but has anyone ever experienced it where it has actually saved them money? Just getting overwhelmed at how much our smallish wedding (125 people) is going to cost!!! If anyone has a suggestion on any particular venues we'd really appreciated it! like I said, we are very open to any ideas. Please help!! Thanks in advance!
