Our deposit was about 1/3 of the venue cost as well.

Ours was 1/2 the total amount, which amounted to $700.

 

EDIT: After reading some of the other posts, I think I should mention that this was just the location and chairs & tables. Catering and linens were a differet company with a different deposit.

We didn’t need to put down a deposit, all we had to do was sign a contract.  If we cancelled with them, there would be a $500 charge, however.

I forget our deposit, but our total is $2000. But it doesnt provide catering. Only tables and a full day rental. Depends what your venue provides may change what it charges and therefore the deposit

I paid $5,000.  I think it depends where you live and on the venue.

Ours was about 40% of the total, definitely a significant sum.

My deposit was $500. I think it varies from place to place- some of the places we were looking at asked for a percentage, which would have definitely made it higher.
