Today’s show features a listener who is torn between two wedding venues – one is FREE, one is not. Listen now!
As you shop around for wedding venues, it may be tempting to choose a less expensive, “DIY-heavy” option over a full-service space. Sure, saving a couple thousand dollars sounds enticing … but you also need to have a very thoughtful debate about the pros and cons of each space.
Specifically, you need to examine and analyze what is and what is NOT included, because what is NOT included – tables, chairs, decor, venue staff, parking, bathrooms – can add up to a lot of additional expense that you may not be fully prepared for.
Today we’re talking through some important things to consider if you find yourself torn between two very different venues. In this listener’s case, one option is FREE. Or is it? The other option costs $5,000, BUT – it’s all set up and ready to go. What’s a couple to do?
