Many wedding banquet halls agree that a wedding is a costly affair. You must consider the costs of the venue rental, photographer, video, decor, entertainment, wedding dress, hair, makeup, transportation, wedding planner, wedding catering and more. If you overspend or over budget on any of these wedding costs, you will have to compromise on your wedding options.
Wedding banquet halls in the surrounding GTA area are usually less expensive the downtown and midtown core of Toronto. Remember that if you build it, they will come. Your friends, family and friends are coming to share your special day. The location of your wedding venue is not a deal breaker.
It is important to understand that your budget is the most important part of the wedding planning process. This will determine the type of wedding banquet hall you can afford and the number of guests that you can invite.
A major part of your budget will be the cost of your wedding venue and your wedding catering. If you are on a budget, you should consider the following:
1. Winter weddings are more cost effective. The demand is lower and event venues offer a variety of promotional discounts to solicit your business. Winter is the slowest part of the year for weddings and all wedding vendors are more inclined to make deals. It’s that time of the year that you can truly say “lets make a deal”.
2. Your wedding banquet hall should be all inclusive. The price should include catering, alcohol, waitstaff, plug in fee, ceremony room, cake cutting fee, environmental fee, security, and brides’ room.
3. Choose a simple menu with an extravagant sweet table ending. Serving chicken instead of beef will reduce your catering costs. Consider seasonal vegetables when deciding on side dishes. Skip the hors d’oeuvres during cocktails and start the main course with a green salad and pasta. Do not offer a premium bar. Provide a rail bar or maybe just have a cash bar.
4. Limiting the number of guests that you plan to invite will reduce your wedding costs.
