What of type of venue did/do you have?

For example: hotel, ballroom, barn, tent, mansion, backyard, beach, outdoor, church hall, other

And is it all inclusive (includes tables, chairs, food, drink, and more), semi-inclusive, or DIY (in this context meaning you have to get vendors for every single thing-tables, food, bar, etc -what I call build a wedding)?

    We are getting married in the chapel at our church and having the reception in the fellowship hall. The hall comes with tables, chairs (we are renting though because they are huge and only seat 6 at a table), standard white tablecloths, and a DOC. We hired a wedding events company which provides the catering, cake, floral, and DJ. We are also using a company who does both photography and videography. I'm trying to have as few vendors to deal with as possible.

    Country Club. It's all inclusive based on what you listed, but it doesn't include vendors. It was important to me to be able to pick my own. Maybe it's semi-inclusive?

    Country club, almost all-inclusive. It didn't include centerpieces/decor or transportation. It also didn't include the DJ but they had a recommended one, who gave us a discount for booking him through the venue.

    Everything else was included: chairs and mic/sound system for the ceremony, chairs/tables/linens for the reception, bar with bartender, catering, servers, setup, taking down and cleaning, a table for gifts/card box and an easel for the seating chart (though we had to make our own seating chart), a bridal room, and a DOC.

    Other- It's a racquet club, but they also have a very small number of guest rooms so I guess kind of a hotel too? I guess it's semi-inclusive because we provide the alcohol. They provide everything else though-soft drinks, mixers, bareware, bartenders, food, cake, tables, chairs, etc.

    ETA: we provide the other vendors and any additional decor

    Mine is a hotel and I guess "semi all inclusive" as well. Has food, drink, tables, chairs, and linens so I just do photo/video, DJ, and other things like that.

    Restaurant turned banquet event (was a restaurant with a banquet room but they decided not to open the restaurant this year-instead just focus on banquets-lucky for us!). Almost all inclusive. Phew!
