Most venues just take a deposit at the contract signing.

You can find a venue that’ll let you pay with credit card and then do your own payment plan if you’re ok paying interest. All venues I looked at in NYC (mostly along the lines of historic ballrooms) wanted 10% upfront, then some variation of percentages along the way. For example, I paid a 10% deposit, I’ll pay 50% six months before the wedding, and then the remainder 3 days before the wedding.

Not in philly and our venue doesnt have a payment plan but I can pay in installments if I wish instead of paying it all at once, minus the deposit.

May I ask why not having a payment plan is a deal breaker? All venues we looked into want the full payment before the wedding anyway so whats the differnce in save the money you would have paid in small payments and paying all at once?

I’m getting married at the Franklin Institute. We had to put down a deposit to reserve our date, and the rest isn’t due until it’s nearly the wedding–I think it’s 30 days before or something along those lines.  Your family could put themselves on a payment plan of their own–if they have two years to pay the balance, they could set aside a certain amount each month so that they afford the final balance at the end. Even if a venue doesn’t have a formal payment plan, most don’t require full payment until 30 days before the wedding anyway.

The same has gone for all our vendors- we pay a deposit now and the rest much closer to the wedding.
