    at my venue in the package I have booked we are allowed 75 day guests. I was told additional guests after this point is £50.00 each including a drinks package. With the amount of additional guests i would have to add i could no where near fit it in my budget. This has meant I have had several months of stress when trying to figure who I should/shouldn't invite. I emailed my venue on a whim today to see if there is reduced price for additional children or if it is a set price for any additional guests or if the additional guests need to be adults first. The very kind lady got back to me saying it is only £13.00 per each additional child and that i could absolutely fill my package with adults first. She also told me that whilst the brochure says children is 6 and younger they actually do allow children of around 10 to be paid for as a child!. This has meant that I can invite my whole family and I am over the moon.

    Just wanted to make you all aware in case you were in a similar situation it's always worth sending the email :) x

    Well Done Nicole!!

    we had this problem with my family being so massive and most packages around here being about 10k for 50 people!!!
    So we have picked a much more basic venue and done it all ourselves to try and save a little on cost, also means we can arrange our own catering and stuff which is nice :)

    glad you got it all sorted out in budget xxx

    Thanks everyone :)

    I'm so happy! feels like a weight has been lifted, the lady who is the wedding planner at the venue is absolutely lovely, one of the reasons I am so glad we found this venue!.

    Maria - that's exactly what we did :)

    Wizbit - It's so difficult when you have a large family isn't it! H2B has 9 Family members and that is all. I on the other hand have sooo many. My mum has four brothers and sisters all with 2-3 children each and now their children have started having children. My dad has 8 brothers and sisters and all but two have had children of their own - and those children pretty much all have children now as well some of them having up to six!!! And that doesn't even include friends we might want to invite, it's crazy. x

    Yes my motto is lways don't ask don't get! I managed to get 4K discount off my venue just by pushing and pushing- the package we went for was for 80 day and evening guests but I've managed to get 100 day guests and 150 evening guests included in the 4 k discount for the 80 guests so miney wise prob works out loads more!

    Yeah my mum was always a bargainer- OH is a proper brit doesn't like to ask but I'm like what's the worst that can happen, they say no?! To me weddings are 1 place where bargains are to be had - venues instantly see £££ and even with this huge discount they are still making a fortune! Lol

    That's great Nicole.

    We are only having 1 child at our wedding, but that might come in useful as we do have a couple of additional adults to pay for at £50 per head, so may be able to make a small saving.

    Every penny counts. Thanks for the tip x

    Looking forward to becoming the 3rd and last Mrs McLauchlan

    Our venue actually told us children are not included in the package and if there were children attending they could be paid for additionally.
