Keep Extra Costs in Mind

 

Just because an outdoor area like a beach, campsite, or park is open to the public doesn’t mean it’s free for use as a wedding venue. To stay on budget, ask these questions in below.

 

Is there a site fee or a “suggested” donation?

Find out ahead of time to avoid any after-the-fact surprises.

 

Is your location remote?

You may incur extra delivery fees if the site is a long way from the nearest road or parking lot.

 

Are you expected to pay for sanitation services?

This is almost always the case at parks, where you’re required to return the site in the condition you found it.

 

Will you need valet parking?

If the nearest public lot is blocks away, it may be your only option.

 

Should you hire security?

It might be required, especially if you have a large guest list.
