Hi Bee’s! FI and are are looking at dates and have almost decided on one, except its on a long weekend.
Does anyone know roughly how much a surcharge could be?
Do venues charge based on a percent of the total cost, additional price per head, set amount etc?
And lastly, if we picked a Sunday, would the surcharge apply if the actual holiday is on the Monday?
Any advice, or past experiences would be appreciated!

I am having a labor day weekend wedding in the US, and I have not had any surcharges. The Sunday should still probably be cheaper. If anything, it’s been easier and cheaper because there are so many vendors still available, since it seems like holiday weekends are less popular for weddings

@kaleidoscope: we are having a Fourth of July wedding and they didn’t charge us extra.

I also have a long weekend (Labor Day) and I wasnt charged extra. Actually, some vendors offered discounts.

Long weekends may be more expensive as you they will likely have to pay staff time and a half to work a holiday.
