I really recommend reading Bridal Bargains before booking an all-inclusive venue. There are quite a few pitfalls that one can encounter after you're already locked into the contract. I have a friend who is getting married in February at a one-stop shop and I know she has been very displeased with all of the add-ons when it came to decorations. Definitely get Bridal Bargains (it's only about $10) and read that section before booking your venue.
I had a February wedding and the venue (Eleven 15 events) was excellent! All the decorations, centerpieces, chair covers, silverware, card box, photographer, and everything else you can think of was included. I did add on 3 hours for the photographer because the package only included 3 hours. All we needed was a videographer, cake, day of coordinator and Dj. The food was included and all the guests as well as hubby and myself loved the food. We also had four hour open bar. After looking for months this venue was the best, the ceremony was perfect and the staff was professional and friendly. They have many packages available. Btw, the decorations and centerpieces did not look cheap or flaky!
Glad you bought the book. I think it will really help make educated decisions all the way through the whole wedding planning process. I wish you all the luck in the world planning your wedding while on deployment. I can't even imagine that experience.
