It seems like most things through DFTW cost more, mainly the floral. I agree with Faith that you should check out some DFTW BEOs.

If you are looking to cut costs you could get rid of the pre-dinner drinks in the courtyard at Il Mulino. Your guests can just have drinks in the private room and that gets rid of the $1,000 minimum for the courtyard. Everything you spend in the room counts towards the room minimum. How are you calculating the price for drinks? It sounds really, really high to me. They suggested that we did not do open bar and instead bill on consumption because wine was not included in the open bar price and most people had wine with dinner. We had 42 people and they drank a LOT. We just barely went over the $3,000 minimum. I think our final total was just over $4,000 with taxes and gratuities. We did the $55 menu.

I had looked into to possibly doing a lunch to save money and to be honest I couldn't really see a huge savings difference. So we just stuck with dinner.

Good luck with your decision!
