My fiance and I are getting married on 6th June 2009, and we've been getting some quotes for our reception and I was just wondering what an average price for a reception like ours is. We're having a church wedding and then we would like a 3 course wedding breakfast for approximately 50 people, then an evening buffet with a disco/entertainment. We've had quotes ranging from £5000 (which we thought was really expensive) to £2000.
Well going from the prices we're about to pay you're looking at around £30 a head for the daytime food and £12 per head for the evening buffet. Disco about £180 and then theres the hire of the action room as well. Sorry to say but its not cheap!
OUrs currently stands at £9000(left to pay after deposit) give or take. Wedding breakfast for 90 and evening reception for 200.
Plus - DJ £200 ish,quartet £400,5 piece band £500
Ringwood Hall @ Chesterfield is very good value, my nephew is using them.
We would be happy to give you a free quote if you want to use an outside caterer.
I am having mine in a lovely location in Worrall near loxley.The room is free we are having a 3 course wedding breakfast for 40 includes a carvery £600 We are also having a drinks package we haven't decided what drinks yet though so not got a price for that.Dj £140, our evening buffet for 100 is £10per head.
We just got our quote through from Cubley Hall
Ceremony, reception & evening 'do all in the same place. Quote is for the following:
Daytime - 70 people - pimms reception, 20 bottles wine, 3 course meal inc carvery, champagne toast.
Evening - hot food for approx 140 people.
===> about £4000
Thanks everyone, I know its not cheap but having no other prices to compare against its very difficult to know if what we've been offered is a good deal or not. We're actually getting married down near Peterborough (because thats where I come from originally) so the prices will be a little higher than up here, but I have a good idea now of whats a reasonable price :D
