Choosing An All Inclusive Event Package For Your Wedding? Make Sure To Ask These Questions

Every year, an average of 2.4 million weddings are performed. While it’s up to each couple to determine when, where, and how they’d like their wedding to proceed, it often helps to gain understanding about the types of event packages that many wedding reception venues offer their clients. All inclusive event packages often make it much easier for the couple to hammer out many essential details of their wedding, from decor to catering, and more. Here are just a few important questions to ask if you’re considering going with an all inclusive event package.

What exactly is included?
First, you should know that while each venue varies in the specific details they provide, many offer the same basic amenities with their all inclusive event packages. These generally include food and drink options (appetizers, buffets, a bar, etc.), floral arrangements, a DJ, and of course, use of the venue itself. About 40% of brides and grooms-to-be are looking for unusual venues that better reflect their personality, and there are also plenty of venues that include photographers and unique decor that can help reflect the couple’s unique and eclectic tastes.

How will you calculate the final price?
Before you sign or pay anything, you need to clearly understand how you’ll be charged for the all inclusive event package. As of 2014, the average couple invites about 136 guests to their wedding, and most event venues charge based on the number of guests.

“Most venues will quote all-inclusive prices based on a set number of guests – this is usually 50. You may have to pay extra if you have more guests joining you in the evening. You’ll find the best all-inclusive wedding package deals if you can move quickly. Arranging your wedding in three months or less may mean a substantial discount on basic all-inclusive services,” writes Rachel Morgan in Wedding Ideas Mag.

Ultimately, understanding these essential questions can help you choose the venue and all inclusive event package that’s right for you. For more information about unique wedding venues, contact Renaissance Miami.
