As you plan your big day, you are sure to compare the prices and offerings of other wedding venues.   Planning a wedding or any special event is very time-consuming, and often includes multiple hidden costs.  Just when you think you've got it all figured out, there's another expense.    

Parkway Banquets strives to GET RID OF HIDDEN COSTS by offering all of the following services as part of our Wedding Packages.  WE CHARGE NO ADDITIONAL FEE FOR THE FOLLOWING SERVICES:  

*  No room rental fee with minimum number of guests, OR, nominal room rental fee with a lower number of guests!  

*  No extra charge for premium liquor & premium beers!

*  No extra bartender fees!

*  No extra charge for colored linens of your choosing!

*  No set-up or clean-up charges!


*  Use our venue for a FREE WEDDING SHOWER when you book any of our 'Ultimate' Packages!

With our wedding & banquet packages, you'll see options that other banquet venues don't even think of, let alone offer!  We offer a 'lower minimum number of guests' than most other venues, and we offer discounts for a Friday, Sunday, or 'off-season' event.    

All seven of our wedding packages can be altered & customized!  Specific items in each package may be exchanged for another option that fits your needs, and suggested substitutions & changes are always welcomed.  We work with you to create the event package that feels "just right" for you.
