Hi – I recently visited The Vineyards and really liked the venue and the people there. Very professional and the property is beautiful. 50% deposit 6 months prior to the wedding….that’s a lot of non-refundable money far in advance.
Anyone booked there for 2010?
Or been to a wedding there?
I want to hear everything and anything you have to say about the venue.

Haven’t been there but I saw pictures and had considered visiting for venue search but realized it was too far. The pictures look very nice though. I agree though that 50% deposit is a lot to put down. Can you negotiate that?

50% of what? The rental fee? If so, I think that is pretty normal. Hard to commit, but if you love it, do it. When choosing my venue, I took my florist with me. He REALLY helped me be able to create the exact ambiance I wanted, and was able to help me start to really see my day in that venue. Once we started talking I was so anxious to book it that I didn’t mind the desposit!! p.s. if you need a florist, I have pics of what mine did to my space. He was absolutely AMAZING, and waaay more reasonable than anyone else I looked at.
Good Luck with your venue!!

I got married last September at the Vineyards and my wedding was amazing. The staff was very helpful and went out of their way to make my wedding run smoothly.

I am getting marreid in Oct 8 2011
we split the $3000 down $1500 due at date to save the date and $1500 due a month later and 50% due 6 months prior to date of wedding. The last bit due 10 day prior to wedding.
so maybe things have changed or they are more willing to work with brides.
