- Wedding: June 2012
I am just curious, did or would any bees go over your expected budget to have the dream reception venue?!
My fiance and I are paying for your wedding ourselves and we budgeted $20k for our venue space, food & beverage. We found a venue which we are both OK with and has an amazing view since it’s on the 43rd floor– we liked the venue, but did not love it; however I did love the view! They are not too highly priced compared to some venues we’ve looked at and fall below our budget. I have also heard very good things about them. BUT I just recently found another venue (a hotel)–Hotel Zaza, that we fell in love with! It is absolutely beautiful and everything we could ask for in a venue! Unfortunately, they did not fall within our budget. They are asking for a minumum of $25,500 in food/beverage. After service charges & tax it would come close to $32,500. My question is– would you guys splurge to have the perfect venue? Would it be worth the extra $$$ to have your dream venue? We would probably be in debt afterwards, and our parents have not promised to help us (but I do think they’ll end up helping us with some). I would love to hear your thoughts! Thanks bees!
