In everyone’s opinion what’s the most important that’s included in the venue price?
•Tables/chairs
•Accommodations on site•Food (so you don’t have to find outside caterer)
Thanks ladies 💁🏼‍♀️

    That means your reception meal can only be limited to what's made in food trucks or bbq caterers. But since this venue doesn't even have tables and chairs, I feel like you might as well keep searching (unless you REALLY love the vibe of this place). That base price is not even that low considering how it comes with practically nothing.

    We decided to go with one and (pretty much) done venue. Since our original date was in winter having accommodations was really important to us for our of town guests. Our venue provides everything food, chairs and tables, linens and alcohol. I only have to do some slight decorating (though they have a decorator i could have used if i didnt want to do it myself), bring in a DJ and we are ready to party 😊. We were going to have the ceremony on site as well but changed that since we see now in June and weather shouldn't be a factor it saved quite a bit of money to move ceremony. Our venue price was an amazing deal.

    We are going cheap Ans local. The legion has everything included for the list of the main stuff. Catering table chairs cutlery and we are hiring them for a toonie bar so we lucked out 500$ fir that plus food and to pay the caterer is 23$ a plate max and it’s for a great cause.

    I think it really depends on your vibe for your day. I know I had a friend that was able to get a friend to cater the wedding, so costs weren't too high. Just be sure you know the guidelines your venue provides when it comes to food as I do know some only allow their approved vendors. But with food trucks on high, its possible that could be a route too, as they wouldn't need access to a kitchen as they have one built in.

    I agree as well. The venue that I was considering doesn’t have food or tables and chairs they just have glassware for the bar which is included. I figured food would be more important because there’s the travel cost or renting food plus a place I look at doesn’t have a kitchen etc. So I’m thinking maybe I should find or look for a place that has food “included”

    Food. Booze would have been a nice bonus, but I know there are many ways to cost effectively provide alcohol. MOST places I looked at already included things like tables and chairs so that wasn't a huge concern.

    We really lucked out with being able to snag all of the above plus linens for a steal of a deal.

    I would say food & beverage, as most places that have in-house F&B, tend to include the tables, chairs, cutlery, glasses, staff, etc... Plus, in Ontario, many venues that either don't have an in-house caterer or allow outside caterers, end up charging a LandMark fee mark-up, which is an average of 15% on top of everything else the venue is invoicing you for.

    Yeah, it adds up quickly though for rentals. We were looking at doing hall weddings where we would rent everything. Came maybe $4,000 cheaper compared to booking the venue that already provided everything. To me it is not worth it, I would rather have stress free and knowing it will all be taken care of with the venue.

    2000$ was the “base price” so that’s why I thought I should pick out of those three lolol

    No problem! If the venue itself was cheaper and did not provide those, then I don't think it would be a problem. But it is still a lot of work to put in for rentals.

    Perfect! Then I guess my answer is clear haha. The worst part is the venue I was looking into advertised tables and chairs but when I spoke to the owner she said they weren’t so, thanks for your input Smiley smile

    I would say table, chairs, cutlery and plates. My venue already provide tables and chairs; they are gorgeous wooden hand made tables with wooden cross back chairs. Those rentals alone cost up too $3,000 in my area. Also the fact that I do not need to rent or buy plates and cutlery and all things that need to be set at a table. Those add up too, especially with a higher guest count.

    Does it have a properly inspected kitchen though that caterers can use to make food out of? If not, that means you can only use catering options that are pre-made and they won't be as fresh as meals made on-site. I'd be weary of using a venue option with no kitchen facilities.

    Tables & chairs for sure if the venue wasn't a hotel. The venue offering both would be an awesome deal to have as a package.

    I would definitely say table and chairs. The cost to rent them adds up fast and delivery is a huge cost. I'm going based on where I am anyway. Having the option to bring your own caterer in I think is more beneficial as you get to really pick and choose (personally I was so happy our perfect venue had amazing food but sometimes that's not the case). It's rare to have accommodations on site unless it's a hotel venue so I really don't think that's a big deal .... unless your venue is in the middle of no where but. shuttles aren't too bad.
