Our venue (Southern California) which includes ceremony/reception spaces, table, chairs, day of coordination and bridal suite was $2000 when we booked it Dec 2014. Our catering cost (6 entree options, 3 side options – buffet style) is $1500 for 100 guests.

Dang, I’m jealous!

Our venue is our caterer (didn’t have a choice) and we are paying $7500 ish for venue, food, and alcohol for 90ish people. And I thought I got a good deal!


Note: in the Vancouver, BC area.

My venue or the venues im looking at will be around 20-30K all in for about 100-125 people in NYC. 

The venues that were broken up in terms of venue rental and then finding an outside caterer were more expensive for me.

Interesting to see how much these vary by location. Mine is in Door County WI. Rental fee for the venue was $4500, and our catering  is $12,500 for 150 guests which includes beer & wine for the night, cheese & crackers during cocktail hour, steak or pork option for dinner, and late night sliders.

fromsmithtodavis:  Venue hire for our reception venue was £900 (around $1350). Our catering (canapes and 3 course meal (with choices for each course) for 61; large evening buffet for 65 covers) and drinks (1 sparkling wine, 1 mimosa, 1 champagne, 1/2 bottle wine (or equivalent) for 55, and soft drinks for 5; plus almost fully open bar for 7.5 hours (drinks up to approx £8/$12 included, others avilable for guests to purchase) came to around £9.2k, or $14k.

So, an approx $15.4k total.
