i went online to look up what other items they had for rent (they have packages available, but we wanted to hire our own vendors) and noticed that some of their prices had changed. We are paying a $5000 site fee (both ceremony & reception w/ unlimited hours) for 250 people. They are now charging $25000 for the same thing!
i’m so glad we signed our contract in june because their is absolutely NO way we could get married there now. I don’t see how anyone could!

Eek! I hope that was a typo on their site! You actually may want to contact someone there and tell them that…

Wow, that makes no sense that they would increase it that much!

wow…. if they are doing that it sounds like they are close to going under! I hope not – for your sake! Did they do any remodeling or something that would make the price go up so much?

definitely not a typo! i thought the same thing at first, but it’s tiered based on the number of people you have. i think they just want to do less work. the packages that they have include a lot more for just a little more money (relatively) so i think it’s a way to making people choose their vendors. the funny thing is, the reason we loved the venue so much more than other places we looked at is that we could use our own vendors!
i know they’re not going under because it’s their vacation home, not main business. they kind of fell into the wedding scene. i guess their thinking is that they would rather only book 1 large paying wedding package then the ala carte pricing. i’m sure they are making money off the vendors as well.

That is ridiculous!! OMG who does that…and on top of just the venue cost you still have to pay for vendors!?! That would just make me want to ELOPE!!
