Ok so the last wedding I went to….was a long time ago…I think I’ve been a grand total of 4 weddings in my life. One of them I don’t remember anything about it, and 2 of them had a weird reception. So my question is…well everything really.
But like a place I found today provides the chairs and the tables, lets you bring in whatever caterer you want, they have the audio system, it’s a really nice place, for 2000….is that good? I don’t even know.
Here’s the link if anyone wants to judge it for themselves,
Welcome to The Mill
What’s a good price for a venue, and including what?
Also what about all the motions? What exactly is the standard routine of a reception? Like does everyone do entrance music? When do you cut the cake, do your first dance etc?
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Like I said, it’s not like I’ve ever planned a wedding before. lol

- Wedding: June 2008 - Winery in the Gold Country
This is kind of good timing! We’re running a "bees budgets" series and today we showed a bunch of bees’ venues across the country, and listed their prices:
The Bees’ Venue Budgets: Major Cities
Tomorrow we’re doing medium and small cities, so if today’s post doesn’t help, hopefully tomorrow’s will!

Thanks for the link!
But wow…there’s no way I could pay those prices. Let me pick my jaw up off the floor. haha!!

I think that is a good price! Rentals can cost a ton, so if you’re having a large wedding you’ll make your money back in rentals alone!
In regards to all your other questions: there are tons of resources available on the hive. Start digging! You’ll find lots of inspiration & help.
I love Mrs. Daffodil’s wedding timeline packet. She didn’t leave a single thing to chance: http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/08/07/the-packet/

I think it’s pretty! We are paying $3000 to rent our venue, which includes the tables and chairs like yours does and we could also bring in whatever caterer we wanted. Sometimes I wish we were having it at a place that does it all for you, but I admit, I like having control over our choices. But, ours fits maybe 150, closer to 130, so having that one fit 300 is great! Do they also supply a coordinator?
I’m using that same packet from Mrs. Daffodil to set up the evening.
