Swansea Wedding Reception Planning for Couples on a Budget

Swansea Wedding Reception Planning for Couples on a Budget

plan wedding on a budgetThe time spent planning a wedding reception in Swansea, MA can be both exciting and frustrating. This is especially true if you are working with a strict budget. Not everyone has an unlimited supply of funds to use, so you need to be smart and choose the things that matter most for your special day. One way to achieve this is to pick a South Coast event venue that does a lot of the work for you. A beautiful backdrop that doesn’t require a lot of decorations, comprehensive wedding packages that provide a lot of the props and basic items in the price, and a team of skilled, experienced, and helpful on-site event coordinators who can assist you with your Swansea wedding reception planning. You can get all that at Venus de Milo, a premier wedding venue in MA that has provided space and support for couples throughout the South Coast region for more than 60 years.

Some refer to “the Venus,” as we are called by our patrons, as world-famous, world-renowned, or regionally-renowned. We are all of those things – and more. Venus de Milo is the largest event, wedding, and banquet facility in the region, but we are also known around the world for our local seafood delicacies and incredible desserts. We host large and small weddings, extravagant and budget receptions, ceremony-and-reception combination events, and just about any wedding celebration you could imagine. We have five elegant ballrooms with over-sized dance floors, which can be combined to host as many as 1,800 guests. However, some of those ballrooms can be configured to host smaller numbers – even groups of just 50 guests – can be accommodated.

So start by scouting out venues. Contact our team to schedule a tour. We can answer any questions you might have about Swansea wedding planning and show you all of the benefits associated with choosing our premier wedding venue in MA.

We have dining options for buffets, plated meals, cocktail receptions, breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and even late-night munchies can be served while you dance the night away. Choose from reception-only or host your ceremony on our grounds as well – we have indoor and outdoor locations that would be perfect for exchanging vows.

The price for a wedding reception in Swansea, MA, or anywhere else for that matter is based on the number of guests. So if you look at a group of 50 minimum for weekdays and Friday daytime weddings, 75 minimum for Friday evenings and Saturday daytimes, and Sundays, or 100 guests minimum for Saturday evening events, it is easy to figure out how much it will cost. Our team will go over details with you, show you how you can save, and offer suggestions on how to stretch your dollars at our South Coast event venue. We want to help you maximize your budget, so you get all of the things you need to host a very special and memorable wedding celebration. If you have a ballpark figure for the number of guests, we can even give you an upfront price quote during your visit.

Book Early and Save

Last-minute weddings can be more costly than events that are planned out well in advance. How far in advance? The average wedding takes more than a year of planning to get everything from the venue to vendors, dresses and wedding party attire, flowers, and bakeries, plus all of the decorations and invitations worked out and selected. This can also be beneficial to couples who are on a budget, as it gives them a whole year to invest in everything required to put on a lovely wedding. An initial deposit is required by our premier wedding venue in MA, and then payments are set-up according to your wedding schedule. This is also the way that most vendors will work, from the DJ or band to the florist and baker, you should be prepared to put down deposits to secure their services and get a signed contract.

Consider the things that you need to have and list the things that you would like to add if there’s room in the budget later. For example, you don’t need valet parking, as we have ample on-site parking for you and all of your guests. But if you like the idea of adding a valet for the convenience of your guests, you can discuss your needs with our team as it gets closer to the day and see if you can afford to add it. If you want to increase the number of flowers that you have at your wedding to include centerpieces on the tables instead of silk flowers, work with your florist to find out the last possible date you can make changes. If the money is available, you can add that on when you are ready. There are lots of things like this that can be upgraded, added-on, and changed. Just make sure you know all of your options early on and keep track of deadlines, payment due dates, and other details.
