What You Should Share with Your Clients When Discussing the Cost of a Wedding Venue

Wedding Planners,

The next time you are talking finances and wedding venues with a couple, please keep in mind that the F&B minimum or the room rental is just a minimum spend or a point of entry. The actual menu prices can be so much more than that. And remember to include service charges (or labor charges) and taxes when you determine per person costs. Also, ask about ceremony fees, rental fees, cleaning fees, and cake cutting fees. AND remember to ask if you should add service charges and taxes to these fees too. Again, when you quote a venue price to a couple, you want to ensure that you include as much information as possible so they will have a true sense of their actual spend. ūü¶Č‚ô•ÔłŹ

Hey there trailblazer!

I’m Kawania (kuh won nee ah) and I own and lead two successful businesses in the creative industry.

When I started Howerton+Wooten Events in 2007, I found myself “googling” a bunch of business questions that aren’t always discussed in business books. You know what I’m talking about, right?!? Those “start up” challenges that keep you up until the wee hours in the morning.

Believe me, I’ve been there — That’s why I launched this blog. To provide you with a resource you can reference with those “middle of the night” questions as you launch, run and scale your own successful (and sustainable) business. There’s lots of information in this blog, so bookmark it and hit me up if you have any questions. We all need a little guidance every now and then, right? Take care friend. Keep shining!

Love and Soul Always, Kawania
