Can you post pics of the venue?

I think it’s hard to say without more details.

It would be nice to hire someone to decorate, so you have one less thing to worry about. 

But if cost is your concern, perhaps post some pictures of the location, and the kind of decor you want, then other bees can advise of that seems reasonable?

Price depends on where you live and what services you are getting. Therefore you can easily pay entirely different prices for the same services becasue you live across the country or across town. No two businesses in the same town charge the same either, and a major metropolitan area like NYC will be completely different from Smalltown, Montana for example so you have to shop around locally yourself and not compare to what others are paying. Everyone has their own budget and idea of what is reasonable so only you can decide what you can afford and if you are willing to pay that amount for what you are getting.

I am going to go out on a limb here and say with the “y’all” in the original post and the username saintsation that you’re in the NOLA area and that 2k is a lot ( I personally think) to spend to decorate that space. You basically have a blank canvass accessible, and if you’re going for winter white, an the pics are of the venue… then 1/2 of the battle is won.


I think you can take that 2k and forego the coordinator/decorator & use it on actual decor and a set up/ tear down crew if needed, and not dip into your savings that much.

The venue is very nice, and I really think if could be very personal and beautiful without draining your savings account!

Mine will be almost that much.

I could’ve done it myself, but the wedding is out of town, a 10 hour drive. We are arriving two days before, but the day before will be filled with visiting and rehearsal, etc. The ceremony’s not until 2:00pm the next day, but personally I’m one of those brides that envision myself in a robe, getting my hair done, sipping champaign, and getting a foot rub (ha) the morning of, not decorating, so it’s completely worth it for me to hire someone!!
