The price of your wedding is custom to you and depends on these factors:
The day of the week you get married
The month of your wedding
How many guests you have (because more people means more food and drinks)
The package you choose and how you decide to customize it
Our wedding prices are entirely dependent on what each couple decides is important to them.
As a ballpark figure, The Knot recently revealed that the average cost for a wedding in the US is far more than $25k, including attire, transport, venue rental, furniture rental, planners and officiants, food, beverages, etc.
At Wedgewood Weddings, our prices are typically more affordable as we pass on the savings from organizing everything in-house and working with a reliable team of artisanal vendors.
We can host an all-inclusive wedding for as little as $5,000 and as much as $60,000; it really depends on you.
What we do offer is a straightforward, free custom quote when you come and tour a venue. We also make a vow to not hide any costs - the number you see is the out-the-door price.
No. We do not apply a guest minimum - you can celebrate with as many or as few people as you wish.
We also do not apply a food and beverage minimum - your food and drink level is determined by the package you choose. ___
We do apply a revenue minimum. We believe it is the fairest way to cover the costs of running an event center.
You'll see that we apply different minimums in different seasons and on different days of the week.
Our minimums are covered by everything included in your service: package, ceremony, and venue prices. Most people find they have met the minimum once the final cost is calculated.
On the rare occasion when that is not the case, you have the option of moving your event date or adding 'enhancements' to your event. Every venue has a list of enhancements, like extra decor options or entertainment, that you may find you want to add anyway.
Our team will set up an appointment for you at the venue of your choice and will follow up by sending you directions, confirming your appointment time, and giving you key venue facts like guest capacity.
When you arrive on-site, look for the sales office where you'll meet the team. You'll be greeted, discuss your event vision and then you'll walk the venue.
During the tour, our team member is on hand to answer your questions and reveal the event flow; they'll also be able to show you how you can personalize your wedding. Expect to see the get-ready room, ballroom, and both indoor and outdoor ceremony sites.
First, you'll receive an exclusive wedding binder that gives you a timeline, walks you through the steps of preparing for your event, and provides detailed advice.
We then set up all the follow-up meetings. Expect at least three, but you can add more if you choose.
Around six months before your event, we have a meeting to run through your vision and timeline. This will make sure you're on track and discover where you need support.
Six weeks before your event, we'll have a 'details' meeting where we cover absolutely everything! Depending on the couple, this might take 120 minutes and it's designed to make sure your day-of coordinator and banquet captain understand your event plants from top to bottom.
10 days pre-event, we'll hold a final formal meeting to lock down any extra ideas. This is when you'll provide the final guest count, confirm if you need any 'enhancements,' and let us know the details of any outside vendors who are supporting your wedding.
We'll also be emailing you to make sure you have:
a personalized link to our invitation ordering site
a link and access code for Bliss Benefits (for our exclusive married life discounts)
introductions to relevant vendors
We're available 7 days a week to support your needs via email, phone, chat, or text. Everyone in the Wedgewood Weddings crew is obsessed with weddings and we'll provide unbiased advice to support you at every step.
Of course, we'll plan to see you at your rehearsal walkthrough, during the pre-event decor and favor drop-off, and on your big day!
You can bring in your own vendors for most elements of your wedding. The only exception to this is at our venues where we do not allow outside catering or bar services.
When you select a Wedgewood Weddings preferred vendor, it's included in your all-inclusive package price. And, they're our preferred vendor for a reason - you can expect great quality, professionalism, and a seamless experience since they're familiar with the venue and staff.
You'll be introduced to your Day-Of Coordinator, who will be familiar with your event plans and can make sure everything is flawless.
You'll also have a dedicated Banquet Captain: They'll be your go-to person for everything from food, to drinks, to entertainment. Expect your Banquet Captain to run your reception from the moment your guests arrive until you depart your event.
Together, your Coordinator and Banquet Captain will make sure you have everything you need, and that your guests are enjoying themselves.
Our event menus include vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. We can also cater to any guest with allergies or who requires sugar-free or dairy-free meals.
Roman Cota, our executive chef, explains:
"Our staff is well-acquainted with a variety of dietary choices and health needs including those on gluten-free diets, vegetarians, and vegans, as well as accommodating other dietary choices. Best of all, we don’t let anything take away from the flavor and quality of our dishes: we rely on fresh, local ingredients, fragrant herbs and spices, and the wisdom of many international cuisines to guarantee everything served at your event is both appetizing and delicious."
We take great pride in our Wedgewood Weddings menu options and they meet the needs of most.
If we're unable to make the food you desire for cultural or traditional reasons, we'll try to accommodate your special requests and allow some foods to be brought in alongside our own main course.
If you need all catering provided by an outside caterer, we have a few venues that accommodate this. Call 805.519.7598 or email Events@WedgewoodWeddings.com for a list of venues that support outside catering.
