@sealevels:  Yaaay! Congratulations! It’s so pretty!

 

We had two main contenders pretty early on, and looked at other places to get variety but they just didn’t come anywhere close. In the end it came down to price!

@sealevels:  Haha, thank you, we did luck out a bit on it!

Price wise the two venues we looked at were very similar – this one came just over I think, BUT it included all the catering, whereas the other venue only included the venue, fixtures and fittings as it were. To get decent catering outside there would have then nearly doubled the price, so it got ruled out in the end!

So we got the slightly cheaper overall venue and lost out on really well-organised and slick service (the wedding coordinator at our place is really dizzy, but also doesn’t work Saturdays so I’m not too worried), and a really well-priced and well-stocked bar (£12.95 per person for unlimited drinks during the afternoon part of the reception, then normal pub prices for the evening!); for better food, a more convenient venue and a significant saving overall. It was a hard choice, but a weight off our shoulders once it was made!

 

 

Is catering included with your venue, or will you have to look outside?
