It’s common for venues to offer a “base” price for a set of time, generally 4-6 hours. Then you’ll need to pay for each additional hour.

3. Choose a venue that’s already beautiful when completely empty.

Does it “WOW” even without decor? Check out the landscaping, lighting, architectural elements, and furniture. You’ll save a bundle if you don’t have to retrofit and bring the “pretty” to the party.

4. Choose a venue that’s flexible with vendor choices.

Working with Wedding Vendors


When you hire the vendors, you control the budget. No mark-ups. Direct contracts between you and the wedding professional allows you to research and eliminate the venue as the “middle man”. It’s always a good idea to ask the venue for recommendations so you hire local & trusted, but ultimately it should be your call.

5. Create boundaries at the beginning.



Deciding on a venue will affect just about every other aspect of your total budget.

additional rentals needed…

vendor requirements…

the guest count…

So, know what to look for BEFORE you tour.
