So I’m engaged to be married on September of 2010. I’m inviting about 150 people, including children, of which I may expect 100. I’ve been doing some research and I think (not sure yet) that I found a really good place. There is this hall that I found that only charges $ 600 (best deal so far, close from my house). Most places charge $ 2000 and up. But there’s this other place that I found that offers me this:
Hall for up to 500 people for 5 hours (I can choose a smaller hall for 125 ppl).
Decorated Food Line that Includes:
Beef or Pork Entree
Pasta, Rice, or Potatoes
Four Prepared Salads
Rolls and Butter
Iced Tea, Coffee, and Water
Includes all linens, china, crystal, flatware and servers.
All this for $ 23.35 per person (I’m ordering 150), plus tax and gratuity.
The thing is, I would have to rent security (two people), a dance floor (from them for only $ 175), a licensed bartender, and I would have to get a liability insurance. Also, I may need two extra hours from the hall which will cost me $ 500 (250 each additional hour).
Does this sound like a good deal? How much (approximately) would the security, bartender, and insurance would be. I live in Bakersfield, CA if that helps.
I’m on a very tight budget and at this moment I’m still deciding whether to have catered food or homemade :S
