  • Wedding: June 2017

My venue had an all inclusive package that we could not say no to! It is &75 per person, including an open bar! The buffet was $125 so it just made sense to do the sit-down dinner. We are having about 120 people so it will be 9K. The set-up/clean-up, linens, cake.. basically everything besides the centerpieces come with the venue, so it is a steal!

$8,000 for venue and catering (cocktail hour passed hors d’oeuvres and plated dinner for 180 ppl). We’re having a limited open bar (wine, beer, two signature drinks) based on consumption for about 4 hours and we’re budgeting about  $3,000 for that. So altogether around  $11,000.

sigmapoodle03: I couldn’t imagine having any other type of food! The menu isn’t set in stone right now, but we are having fried chicken, ham, and turkey. Our sides consist of mac and cheese, collard greens, hashbrown casserole, beans, salad, and rolls. We may include one more side!

kelmpm7809:  I love this venue and considered it, but I didn’t need something for that many days. Are there other venues you also liked?
