When choosing a reception center for your wedding, sticking to your budget can be a challenge – which is why many couples end up spending far more than they originally planned.
To avoid breaking the bank, hold your event at an all-inclusive reception center. You’ll have a much easier time staying within your wedding budget if you choose a venue rental that includes some or all your must-have amenities.
And who doesn’t want to save some of your hard-earned cash to put toward a honeymoon or buying a house?
Planning Your Wedding Budget
If you’ve never been involved in planning a wedding, you might be surprised at how quickly the costs add up. Every detail must be accounted for – and paid for – making it hard to stick to your wedding budget.
As you plan your event, the obvious expenses – including the venue rental, wedding attire, and photography – tend to be the biggest ticket items. But the many smaller, unexpected costs can also quickly chip away at your available funds.
This can include table and chair rentals, linens, your centerpieces, AV equipment rental, etc. And if you want help from a wedding planner – as most couples do – that’s going to cost you too.
The Many Perks of Choosing an All-Inclusive Reception Center
Go with an all-inclusive reception center, however, and you won’t have to worry about budgeting for many of these costly items. Amenities vary depending upon the facility, but look for a facility that offers free perks such as the following:
- Dining tables and chairs arranged to suit your guests
- Table linens and napkins in a variety of colors
- A selection of stylish containers for centerpieces
- Easels to display portraits of the happy couple
- Audio-visual equipment, such as a sound system with a microphone
- Cake-cutting station with professional service staff
Some all-inclusive reception centers – including Aspen Landing — also go the extra mile, including the assistance of an expert wedding consultant and event planner in the cost of the venue rental.
How to Stretch Your Wedding Budget Even Further
An all-inclusive reception venue rental is a good value any time of the year, but choosing the right event date can save you even more.
Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays are the most sought-after and, consequently, the most expensive times to book a reception center. Thursdays are often a little more affordable, but venue rental costs tend to be lowest for events held on Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
In addition, consider booking your event between the months of October and April. Utah reception center rental prices tend to be the highest during the months of May through September.
