We put 10% down and then made another 10% payment maybe a month later? I can’t say that’s typical necessarily, just what we experienced. 🙂

It totally depends on the venue. We had to put 1/3 down upfront. The remainder was paid at 60 days out (another 1/3) and then 14 days out (the remaining 1/3). We have a few friends and family members who recently married. They only had to put $500 down on their respected venues.

We put $1000 down.  $2500 is due in April, another $2500 is due in July, then the balance three weeks before the wedding.

We put 1/3 down on ours, then the remainder is due the day before the event.

In my city, most venues we’ve look at had a $1000 deposit requirement to book the event.  (Except for one place which was $500.)
