Hi ladies ! I just started the crazy venue search process , hoping to get married next fall. I have one question- is it normal for a venue to only accept cash payments? I only looked into one venue so far, and they wanted a $6000 down payment , and 50% 5 months before the wedding , CASH ONLY. Is this the norm, or will other vendors accept credit cards? I plan on paying in cash or check anyway, I’m just worried about if something unexpected comes up, I’d feel more comfortable having the option to charge if I need to.
