GOOD GRAVY that’s a lot of money!!! (my entire wedding will be about $30,000).
If you love it and you can afford it go for it. But I know at my venue the deposit was only 20% of the venue rental (catering is extra, but not due until wedding) which totaled to $320. My venue is a nice ballroom; not ornate, but new and pretty and classic. I know all the other venues I looked at required a 50% deposit, but they didn’t require the half of the catering cost. It sounds like your venue just wants to make sure you can afford the catering and rental cost, maybe, so they can only get the most elite of brides?! I may be really off base but that’s kinda what it sounds like when they are asking for that much money.
