- Wedding: August 2013
Due to many popular venues booking extremely early in our area (an oceanfront resort city) for our date, we are hoping to have a deposit down on a venue hopefully in the early part of the new year. Currently, these are our top two choices:
Venue A is approximately 30 minutes from the ceremony site, and their wedding package includes everything but the photographer and the cake. They also offer a child discount. However, their time restrictions mean that we would have to either change the time of our ceremony, or have a 3.5 hour gap between the ceremony and the reception! Our ceremony venue is only available from 11:30-12:30 or 2:30-3:30 due to other events that will be taking place that weekend.
Venue B is approximately 20 minutes from the ceremony site. Their wedding package includes the space, food & drink, and decor only; we would be on our own to locate vendors for the rest. They have offered to reduce the room fee, set-up/break-down fee, and bartender fee if we book now…in addition to the child discount. And they are willing to start our event when we want, without need to reschedule our ceremony.
All other aspects (looks, price, etc.) being equal…
