So, Fi and I went and did some Newport Venue browsing. One place we loved particularly was the NYC. It was actually the first place that Fi began talking about how much he liked it BEFORE we had even gotten back to the car!! Usually I'm the one blabbing about the venue and what I liked/disliked. It is slightly more than we had intended on paying, however, it includes a lot of the things i would have upgraded at any other venue such as, Colored Linens, Different choices of China/ glasses, and also the cake is included, and you get to meet with their chef and create your own design and all. So i feel that it sort of balances out compared to the Easton Beach Rotunda we were also looking at where we would need to pay the caterer and linen, china, glassware rentals separately. Perhaps I'm just making excuses to justify the amounts lol. It is $69pp and that includes, 4 butlered hors d'oeuvres, a first course, two entrees, and custom wedding cake, then everything else i had listed above. I personally think that that is what it would be if i were to purchase the hor d'oervres and the dinners seperately else where???? Opinions??
