Planning Your Wedding
The key to a successful event is careful planning. Allowing ample time for planning will relieve lots of stress. Weddings generally take about a year to plan, while other parties take a couple months. Our staff can provide you with the highest level of personal service in creating an event to remember. The following steps are a guide to create the perfect celebration.
Step 1: Budgeting
Consider all costs when planning your wedding and budget accordingly. All events are priced per person and in addition, there is sales tax and a service charge. Other costs to keep in mind include entertainment, limousines, invitations, party favors, and photographers.
Step 2: Guest List
Make your guest list early in order to give your family, friends, and coworkers plenty of time to RSVP.
Step 3: Set your first appointment at Gaslite Manor
During your first visit, you will pick a menu to determine the price per person. Your tastes and budget will determine what menu you will choose. Keep in mind that discounts are available if you choose to book the event on a Friday or Sunday, Monday through Thursday, and off-season dates, excluding holidays. Types of dining include buffet, formal sit-down, and cocktail. Our staff will work closely with you to meet your specific needs and determine the ideal party structure.
Step 4: Set your second appointment
During this meeting, you will book your date and work out a payment plan. This includes a minimum down payment of 20% of the estimated bill. You will also begin the menu selection process at this time while working with your coordinator.
Step 5: Book your entertainment, photographer, and limousine
Once you determine the event date and time, you will need to book the photographer, entertainment, and limousine. Need help deciding who to go with? Not a problem.

Step 6: Send out your invitations
Mail your invitations about three months before the event. Choose an RSVP date that is at least four weeks before the party. Keep in mind that some people tend to wait until the last minute to respond, so make sure you have a few extra seats.
Step 7: Finalize RSVPs
Create a list of people who have committed to attending your event and those who have declined. Contact everyone who has not responded yet. This will allow you to develop your final count.
Step 8: Set your last appointment
You will go over details for your event during the final appointment at the hall. Seating arrangements and room sets will be determined.
Step 9: Let the celebration begin!
