Situated in the hills above the Palos Verdes Peninsula just over Los Angeles, California, the La Venta Inn, a budget-friendly wedding event location option in Southern California, provides a wonderfully restored Spanish villa from the 1920s, using the “best of California.”
Just how much does a La Venta Inn wedding event cost?
While browsing the main site, we weren’t able to find any details about the official prices and discounts; instead, they asked the interested couples to contact them through the online contact form on the website. On this form, they ask for the preferred wedding date, the visitor number, how you found out about them, and some more information information about the event itself. Just like many wedding event places, the number of visitors and the time of year/day of the week will all impact your final price quote.
While we weren’t able to find official quotes online, Wedding-Spot noted that a rental for exclusive usage can be as low as $3,500, depending upon the day, time, and the season of the wedding event, whereas the food and ceremony for the wedding, which is provided by the location, could be priced at anywhere from $176 to $274 per individual in total, all depending upon your menu setup. Once again, like any wedding event location, adding a full premium open bar might cost far more than a non-alcohol wedding event with a buffet-like food setup.
HereComestheGuide, on the other hand, approximates $4,000 to $10,000 per event, with meals starting at $70 per individual when priced separately and drinks costing at least $16 per individual. The event expense is claimed to be about $2,250 per event.
|Meals||$70 to $150+ per guest|
|Non-alcoholic beverage package||$16+ per guest|
|BYO beverage package||$21+ per guest|
|Hosted beverage package||$37+ per guest|
