Catering/Venue
$22,301.87
Battery Gardens

Included in this cost:

-Wait staff
-Table cloths
-Chairs
-Tables
-Alcohol (open bar, signature drink)
-Dining ware
-Day off coordinator who helped a lot with things leading up to it, etc. 

We moved things around from the initial package which included four courses and other extras we didn’t want and ultimately had a passed champagne pre ceremony, heavy cocktail hour food wise (8 passed horderves and two or three stations for cocktail hour), then a seated dinner with a salad, main dinner (guest got to choose two options + vegetarian option) + petit fours on the table + tea and coffee – very New York!

Invoice is below of what was included just remember the prices do not include tax + admin fee (+ total people ended up being a little less)

Averaged out to ~$173 per person

The price was $130 per person, including alcohol but in New York everything comes with 8% tax and almost everything has a 22% admin fee (not tip) so it was closer to $173 per person (kids were half off). We had 125 people and it was $22,301.87 total not including the vendor fee above (+ caterer meals – 3 sandwich meals at 25/pp and one normal dinner at $60)

Tips & Advice from the Couple
-Don’t do things just because other people want you to or that’s the way it should be done, it’s your wedding!
-You can save a lot of money on paper if you have a friend who is at all creative.  I paid for invites and a program, but my friend did little info cards for me and the menu and I wish I had her do all the paper.
-Ask your married friends if they have any hand me downs – I gave  another friend my card box and am trying to pawn of my veil!
-Be realistic about DIY and who you are. I thought I’d do my own flowers, but that’s not me at all.  But my other friend did hers and they were beautiful! Recruit friends and make it fun.
-Deal envelopes with a damp sponge or paper towel
-Negotiate! If someone had a package that doesn’t work for you, try talking and explaining what you want.  For example, me venue wouldn’t go lower on price but let me move things around and swap stuff out so I didn’t have to incur more charges.
