I think they are both beautful places.  But I think you should set your budget and be firm with sticking to it.

Set an amount for food, venue etc. and if the 15K is over that amount, then go with the Chinese place.

As a current homeowner and a woman planning her wedding, I would advise you to spend cautiously because your wedding will be wonderful regardless of the price.  Trust me!

I’ve been to weddings where the couple spent 10K and I was completely taken away with beautiful everything turned out.

Good luck!

Hi there,

I think you’re underestimating the costs of venue nr 1. If the venue hire alone is 8K I don’t think you’ll realistically be able to pay for everything else with only 7K. Have you got quotes for catering, drinks, music, flowers, entertainment, lighting yet? My guess is that your total cost will end up being higher than 15K if you use this option.

My suggestion is that you first get a better idea of the total cost for venue nr 1 including everything and then make your choice.

Venue nr 2 sounds pretty cool and different though.

Good luck!

I love the looks of venue #2 and if that is something that you can be or are happy with, then I’d say DEFINITELY save the money for a house downpayment or whatever!  My parents gave us $15k to spend however we wanted and we could have used all of that for the wedding if we wanted to, however to us, it was really important to put a nice chunk of that into savings for our future together.  My wedding cost $6600 all said and done and I loved every part of it!  

Just remember when you are deciding that the wedding is just one day out of the rest of your lives together.  🙂

They are both beautiful but venue #2 sounds like a true winner. It’s beautiful and its in your budget. As far as I’m concerned, event venues and vendors whose prices are out of reach for your average $15,000 wedding are not in the industry to make money and help make weddings beautiful. They are only in the business to overcharge people who are notorious for going over budget because of the sentiment of the occasion. Go with venue #2. You’ll have a beautiful wedding without going overbudget and be happy you did!
