Ceremony and reception selection for your wedding day is one of the most difficult decisions. After all of the site visits, checking and double checking availability, anguishing over whether it fits the theme, and wrestling with sleepless nights...you finally breathe a sigh of release and make a decision. Or have you?
Take a look at your budget and rationalize what you have allocated for rentals, for catering, for florals, and other line items in your budget. Ask the site manager what is actually included with the venue. You will find that many of them provide the tables, the chairs, even the linen. These things will only add to your bottom line. You might pay a heftier price for the venue but in the end you are making up in savings.
Catering is something that you should also ask about. Do they have a required caterer for their property or are outside vendors allowed. Having a specified caterer can help because the vendor and their staff are familiar with the venue and know what works well. But before signing a contract with the venue, make certain that you review the caterer's menu and pricing as well. Does their selection fit your individual tastes, vision, and pricing?
