It's the economics of supply and demand! Use them in your favor when planning your most special day! Friday Weddings are fun like Saturday - but with a twist! It cost a lot less money! Yes, we're talking the difference between having the wedding of your dreams and not - all depending on the date you want to book! Saturdays are prime-time, premium wedding dates not only for your venue but for many vendors such as your wedding photographer, caterer, DJ and more! The cost of services is typically more negotiable for Friday brides, where Saturday brides are literally competing with the masses to get their date and details lined up. They are also subject to the high demand price point that can really limit what you're able to do to create your true dream wedding! It's basically a simple principle, based on demand, made easy to understand by nature of Californos simple and complete all-inclusive wedding reception and ceremony package.
Californos not only offer a special price point for Friday weddings, but that price point is going to be based on your guest count and the season as well! Larger Friday groups or a Friday wedding in the Winter months enjoy the most value for their buck, as they are either purchasing more food & drink by sheer size of their wedding, or they are competing with even fewer brides, and are able to snag amazing deals on their fully hosted party and breathtakingly beautiful space!
Tour Californos historic and expansive trolley barn location this week and consider reserving your wedding on a Friday in 2019 or 2020 at Californos Westport, KC's favorite Friday wedding venue! But wait, what about our out-of-town-guests? I don't know about you, but I've been to a lot of weddings! I've attended a Sunday wedding in up-state New York, a Thursday Wedding near Denver, and my own parents got married on a Friday back in 1978. You can get married any day of your choosing and your most important friends and family will be thrilled to attend, no matter the day you choose. You'll find out first hand that a Friday wedding at Californos is much like a Saturday event - only you definitely get a better price and your chances of having early access to the venue for set-up or a rehearsal greatly increase! At the end of your reception, it will feel like the end of a long day - but you wake up again and it's only Saturday! Some guests will stay in town and enjoy Kansas City that extra day.
