    Just the hall was $500, but this facility is also part of the public metroparks, so it was cheaper. Catering, not so much!

    There wasn’t a true rental/use fee that we had to pay.  The price of the hall was actually worked into the “per head” price for the catering…. so while we paid for it, it wasn’t really a set price.

    Too dang much! But it was the first thing we secured so I didn’t realize how big of a chunk of our budget was going to a room! It was beautiful and I loved it but if I’d been more aware I’m sure i could have found another beautiful place for cheaper. Ah well, hindsight is 20/20

    No rental fee for the reception, but $500 to have the ceremony there.

    We’re renting a museum courtyard for $1,000- I thought that was a steal. We might have to spend more to close down the inside of the museum to other guests though… but we need the AC!

    Ours was free, we just have to pay the cost of food.  It is going to be in the entire second floor of a beautiful, newly renovated downtown Irish Pub.  They originally had a set limit of $800-$1000/hour that had to be spent, but after talking with the Event Coordinator, she waived the minimum expenditure for me.  My mom is paying for the food, and I wasn’t planning on her spending more than $1600-$2000 on 100 people, but I fell in love with the space and the EC understood that (Thankfully!) 

    We are paying a big chunk for our ceremony venue, though.

    About $2275. We get so much for that price though that i couldn’t pass it up. They do all the setup and breakdown, we get our own wedding planner, anything we want or need we just tell our planner and she figures out how to get it, all the tables, gold chivari chairs are provided. They even have pretty linens to use as well. We get the mansion for 9 hours which is pretty good too I think. not included in that # is our food and drink cost though, which is another $3250. But they have some of the best food in our town for weddings.

    Ours was $1200, and another $400 to have the ceremony there. It was totally worth it though. We had the entire place to ourselves, we had a day of coordinator, and linens, plates, and silverware were all included in that price as well.

    Free to use the conference center at the college where I teach. But we had to use the on-site catering.
