Planning a wedding can be overwhelming. There are so many things that need to be done. Not everyone can afford to hire social event coordinators to take care of all the details, so many couples go it alone, arranging everything from the venue to the flowers and everything in between. If you are planning a wedding ceremony and reception in the Southeastern Massachusetts area, consider hosting your wedding reception in Swansea, MA at the world-famous Venus de Milo.

Budgeting is Important
While there are some couples who have no price limit when it comes to wedding planning, either due to generous parents or smart savings, most people will want to create a budget ahead of time to make sure that they can afford to host a wedding at the MA wedding and banquet facility of their choice. What you need to learn right away is that weddings are priced based on a couple of factors: the head count of your guests, the food that you want to serve, and the cost for any extras that you want to add. If there are multiple ballrooms or locations within the venue, the cost may also vary due to your preferences, but these are the main factors that need to be considered when planning a wedding reception in Swansea, MA on a budget.
One way to figure out the cost easily is to ask about wedding packages. Venus de Milo has three custom wedding packages for couples to choose from for their special day. Our on-site social event coordinators can help you select the best options based on your needs and budget, answering any questions that you might have about opportunities to add extras to the basic package deal. Packages range from $29.95 to $59.95 per person, plus tax and the house fee. These are all-inclusive packages, which means that everything from the room rental to the use of tables, linens, uplighting, and hurricane globe centerpieces with candles are made available as part of the deal. A cocktail hour, champagne toast, plated dinner, and dessert is all included, along with coffee and tea.
Availability is Key
The sooner you can start planning your ceremony and wedding reception in Swansea, MA, the better. Depending on the time of year, the calendar can fill up fast. Spring and summer weddings are still the most popular, followed by fall and then winter dates. However, the sooner you can contact our venue to make sure that the MA wedding and banquet facility will be available on your desired date, the easier it will be to secure it. Many couples start planning a full year or more in advance, but if you have a shorter date in mind, don’t be discouraged. There are often other options available that can help you to have the wedding of your dreams at the venue of your choice without having to compromise too much. For best results, come prepared with a month or set of dates in mind and then discuss it with the on-site social event coordinators to secure a specific date.
Other Details to Arrange
In addition to making sure you can afford the venue and that the date range you want is available, there are other things to consider. Is there enough space for your guests? Will there be enough parking? Are there in-house options for audio-visual equipment and other technology to make a set-up for a DJ, band, or emcee a lot easier? Do you have the option to host both the wedding ceremony and reception at the same MA wedding and banquet facility? Make sure to get a pricing breakdown and a contract from the venue and any other vendors that you work with for the celebration. Contact Venus de Milo by dialing 508-678-3901 and speak with one of our social event coordinators to schedule a tour of our facility.
