When planning weddings or events it is very important to include an estimated service charge and tax in your calculations for event cost. Often times when people are planning events they only think about the hard cost. The cost of the venue, the food, the entertainment, decorations, ect. What people often forget to include in the calculations is the 22% service charge and 8% sales tax that most venues will also charge on top of the facility rental fee. These charges can add up quickly. So when meeting with venues and meeting with caterers make sure to ask them to include the service charge and sales tax in the event proposal. Knowing the true cost upfront will allow you to make an educated decision and ensure there are no hidden cost!
