Our comprehensive guide explores some of the reasons wedding venues are expensive. Find out what’s included in a wedding venue and if there are ways to cut down your wedding venue budget.
Location is one factor that drives the cost of a wedding venue up. Although you may prefer a location accessible to your guests and one where you don’t have to worry about extra transportation services, that may come at an additional cost.
The size of the venue includes the dancing area and where guests can walk around and eat. A venue accommodating over 100 guests will be more expensive than one that can only hold 50 guests.
The final cost of the wedding venue will be high if it includes catering, service staff, and other items like linens, chairs, dishes, lighting, speakers, and a DJ.
Ensure that you do your research before settling on any venue. Ask about what the overall cost includes and if there are any additional costs you need to be aware of. Don’t forget to book in advance as this could get you a better deal.
