When searching for a wedding venue, it’s important to get clarity on what the venue’s rental fee includes. There’s a reason that some venues charge only a few hundred dollars while others charge thousands: what each venue includes in that fee varies greatly.

Some venues include staff, setup, tear-down and a huge selection of amenities. Others simply offer the space, leaving couples responsible for everything else.

This list of the top ten wedding venues in Louisville, Kentucky includes venues with a huge variety of offerings.
