    @Sunshine805:  If it’s your dream venue then book it. 500-600 Is a lot of money but in the the grand scheme of things it isn’t so bad. I guess you really have to figure out how much that means to you. Would you be disappointed not to have the cabana? Also, can you make a b guest list, so if people decline from your orginal guest list you can invite others to meet your quota?

    Can you upgrade or add items until you meet the minimum?  If you end up with less than 15 guests, see if the venue will let you upgrade once you have a final count, like to a premium bar or add a few more appetizers.  This is what we will be doing if we come in under.  If not, then it might be worth the extra money since you were planning on spending it anyway if you had 5 more guests.

    It’s not that hard to add an extra $600 to the bill if your guests are drinking good wine/spirits.  If it’s your dream, I’d say go for the cabana.

    For sure, upgrade the menu – get more expensive wine/spirits… if it your dream and you can afford it, go for it!
