Just curious, to see what you have paid, as initially one venue quoted €2000 deposit.
I'm wondering are there many places out there who asked for this kind of money on a deposit.
Would you pay anymore than what you did? Do you think €2000 is asking a bit much?!
i gave 500 they were looking for a 1000 no way would i give 2k at the end of the day hotels are closing every day thats what i said to my hotel and they said fair enough cause remember if they close down you will not get your deposit back , and congrats on your engagement
€1000 for us - I think anything else is too much!
€1000 for us too,think that plenty would be bit nervous giving €2000 or more, as already said if they close that money is gone....and all ua wollies know, €2000 would go along way towards something else!
We paid €800 on booking and then €600 six months before our wedding.
So far €1000 seems to be a popular choice!!
But €2000 is clearly asked for a fair bit too!
Our deposit was €1500 but we paid 1000 first then couple weeks later paid the 500 so twas ok!
We paid 1,000 when we put our deposit down (and that was 18 months before) then about 5 months before we paid another 1,000.
I know someone who paid 2k a year before and a further 2k 6 months before, its a very popular venue and to secure the date this was what was necessary.
Id bump this again on Monday VanillaCupcake to get a good response - weekends are always quiet. Im also suprised the amount of people who had to pay more than a grand!
We were asked for 2000 deposit and we paid it
