Make sure before you inquire you already have a place in mind. For us we opt for Royal Palms Country club because it near our place and since it is very affordable. Php12,000 for guests (have a resident sponsor you and you get this discounted rate) and Php10,000 for those with a unit/property inside Royal Palms, Acacia Estates.
The CATERER is Queensland and I am putting in the Contract so you can see their rules and regulations in the event of cancellation, transfer of set up and services, garden set up, left over food and such.
Downpayment of Php5,000 is ok and you just need to pay in full 2-3 weeks before the event.
Here is the run down of how much we paid for our 80 Guests – around Php27,140.00
