Wedding Venue Prices #

You may host your reception in a room at a nice restaurant that has a private room. The cost to reserve the room may be $200 to $500. However, you may get it for free. A restaurant loves a large group of people coming in to buy a lot of food and drinks. They may set up a nice arrangement for you if they know you're going to be racking up a healthy “wedding feast” type bill.

To rent a modest wedding hall that will hold 70 to 100 people it will cost $500 to $3,000. This will afford a hall with a dance floor or a space big enough to lay one down. There are wedding dance floors that snap together and can be put anywhere.

To rent a fancy wedding hall that is made for holding large functions and parties it will cost $3,000 to $15,000. The higher you go on this scale, the nicer the facility will be. When you get into the highest range of venues chandeliers and fountains is what you should expect. At these prices, the building will be very lovely with ample parking, well landscaped, and the interior will be luxurious. A wedding venue in this price range may come equipped with the extra things you will need; seating, tables, and dance floor. If it costs more for the wedding venue but these services are included you should factor that in.

Shopping Tip #

It can save some money in the end to have it all in one package vs. paying for it all piecemeal. Moreover, it can be a benefit to having it all in one in terms of the synergy of the entire event. A wedding venue that does food, tables, chairs, and has a dance floor is accustomed to that venue. They have all of the wrinkles ironed out and they know the setting. It makes it easier to make it run smoothly when there are fewer variables.

These are simply prices for wedding venue rentals. These prices do not include food and drink or cake. For more on that check out the article:
