Wedding – additional expenses

November 5, 2009

Question:    The venue where we are having our wedding reception is allowing us to bring in our own wine.  However, they are charging us a corkage fee, which I do not understand and feel is ridiculous.

Answer:  I am a little surprised  that any venue would allow this for the following reasons.

1. They will be stocking  your wine in their refrigerators and any open space (which costs money) before the wedding – using their labor to load and unload.

2. You will be using their labor, glasses, ice, (possibly cocktail napkins) trash etc.

3.  You will also be under their LIABILITY INSURANCE , which is very expensive.  

4.  THANK YOUR LUCKY STARS AND BE GRATEFUL THEY ARE ALLOWING THIS.
