@CakeyP:  I would give them your budget for just the reception venue (and any other things their venue inlcudes like food). I would consider giving them a number a little under what you’re willing to spend and assume that they want the figure before tax and tip.

I definitely think you should give them a number below. most vendors are aware you have a “soft” budget then a real budget that is higher than the soft.  

Its basically negotiating. 

Also, if you give yourself some cushion room you can then upgrade for other options.
