Ours was $100. We had done our research and were 100% sure this was the place we would have our reception though, so we just paid in full up front. Worked out perfectly – no regrets.

Ours will be either $2500 or $5000, depending on which venue we go with.  We’ll also have to put a catering deposit down once we set our menu, 50% due 120 days before the wedding.

I don’t think there’s much of an averaeg here – it’s all specific on what your venue wants.  We put down $2500 and had to pay the remaining $3600 2 weeks prior to the event.

We put down half of the venue cost (That’s what they required). The rest will be paid right before the wedding.
