Whether you are planning a birthday party, corporate event, or wedding, finding the right event space is a great place to start. This is especially true in San Diego where there are so many beautiful event spaces. The location you choose for your event will help to set the tone, and kickstart the planning process. One important consideration when evaluating venues in San Diego is whether the event space is all inclusive. All-inclusive event spaces simplify the process by providing many of the main elements of a wedding or other big event all under one solution without compromising any of the personal touches.

What is All-Inclusive?

All inclusive refers to a venue that provides everything you would need to make your event come together. The term all-inclusive usually describes a venue that includes everything from the food and drinks to the table linens and event rentals. Some all-inclusive event spaces offer (or partner with) DJs, floral designers and photography services, although this depends on your specific needs and style.

Some of the things you can expect from a San Diego all-inclusive event solution include:

  • Day of wedding or event coordinator
  • Event manager and wait staff to make sure everything runs smoothly
  • Custom menus and bar options
  • Champagne or sparkling cider for toast
  • Complimentary cake cutting service
  • Tables, including sweetheart table for a wedding
  • Guestbook tables and place card tables
  • Belly bars with stools for cocktail hour
  • Patio heaters for outside events
  • Floor length linens (color options typically provided)
  • Choice of chargers for plates
  • Candle options
  • China and champagne flutes for dining
  • Setup and clean up services

What is Not Provided in All Inclusive Event?

This depends on the venue. Many times, the venue will offer flexibility in the available packages. For example, clients may be presented with different styles of menus, and not be limited to one fixed choice. These options may include variations of a sit down menu, tray passed appetizers and / or specialty dining stations. Clients may also have say over the color of linens and table layouts.

The following services are typically not included in an all-inclusive event:

  • Photographers and videographers — these are very specific decisions and every photographer and videographer has a unique approach. So each individual should choose who to work with based on compatibility and style.
  • DJ — DJs are also very specific and tend to play towards a specific genre or musical taste. DJs play important roles in San Diego weddings and events as they use their personalities to direct the crowd and change the mood of the room.
  • Floral designers — floral designers also are more based on personal preference. These are usually chosen by the couple or event host as the style and type of flowers can set the tone for the entire event.

However, it is typically a great idea to choose an all-inclusive event for the convenience of it all. If you would like suggestions for the DJ, floral designer and photographer, or other services not included by default, ask your coordinator! The venue coordinator will suggest vendor partners or favorites based on his/her network and connections. Experienced wedding and event coordinators in San Diego are well connected within the community and will have plenty of top-notch vendors to recommend.
