If you’ve started your venue search, you know that no two venues are exactly the same. Other than the obvious differences (like location, style, or size), each venue varies in the way they structure their venue rental package and what’s included in the price.
While some venues simply provide the space as the blank canvas to plan your wedding day, others provide alcohol or food, and some even provide tables, chairs, tents, decor, and food and beverage service equipment (like plates, flatware, glassware and serveware).
So, what’s the best way to factor all these things in when selecting your venue? With an old-school chart, of course!
When I’m helping my full-service planning couples select their venue, I’ll often complete this exact sheet to help clearly estimate the costs for them.
To use this sheet yourself, simply download and print, or open the document in GoogleDocs, make a copy and fill it in virtually.
