I hear you, that stuff adds up and when you think you’re getting a good deal, there it goes.  Hopefully that’s the last of it for you!

My venu charges for breaking down the room during ceremony and reception but it is included in the room rental up front.

I don’t know why your venue does this. I would think that the rental fee should include the most basic service unless stated otherwise. I’m expecting that if it’s not explained anywhere in my contract, in the fine prints, in the finalized budget, I wouldn’t need to pay for it. These hidden fees seem illegal. What if they throw you another “oh, you want running water and electricity at your venu? that’s another $____”

Yeah, mine was included in the contract. But what I thought was funny was that there was no fee for renting the restaurant where we’re having our reception, just a minimum expenditure, but to have the ceremony there too adds 300$.  But all things considered, I was just happy to have found a place that includes food wine and beer plus a ceremony site for under 5k!
