"The Avanti was not only a beautiful venue for our ceremony and reception, but the service was outstanding! Everything was breathtakingly beautiful, well-kept, clean, and exactly as we agreed upon. The Avanti was very open about prices upfront and we did not experience any confusion related to extra prices or fees. They created a perfect and most memorable day for us!!! Thank you Avanti!!!!!"


 —Kate & Anthony, Married June 20, 2014 from East Amherst, NY

Dream Weddings at the Avanti Mansion

"We used both of Avanti's venues for our two-day celebration, (which included the Baraat, Sanget and  Jai Mala  - held in the outdoor wedding reception area) and a more Americanized wedding and reception (held in the Amore Ballroom). Our wedding planner provided a level of attention to detail and caring that went way above and beyond what we expected. The food turned out amazing!  The chef wowed us with the scrumptious mix of Indian and American cuisine at both functions. The service was impeccable - friendly, unobtrusive and very efficient.  I will definitely use Avanti for any future celebrations in my family."


-Divya & Aaron, Married May 10th-11th, 2014, from Amherst, NY

Dream Weddings at the Avanti Mansion

They did everything to make sure our day was perfect. The day of, we worried about nothing. Magically there was some there giving me a drink and ready if I needed everything. They treated everyone like this, not just me the bride. The food was GREAT! I don't know how they cooked all the steaks to perfection but they did it. There was this personal, and intimate feeling to the wedding. Go look at this place, you will fall in love! —Tonia & Daniel

Pricing and Payments

We have three total payments that are required for your event. The first, is the $1,000 non-refundable reservation fee. The second payment is due at least ninety prior to your event, based on the amount specified in your contract. Your final payment is ten days before your event date. With the exception of the reservation fee, cash and check are accepted for any payments.

To reserve a specific date for your wedding, a $1,000 non-refundable reservation fee is required, as well as a signed catering agreement. For this initial payment we accept checks, cash, MasterCard and Visa.

Due to the amount of private tours we hold per week, our available dates are on a first come, first serve basis.  If you are interested in a specific date, we would love for you to schedule a private appointment to tour our facilities so that we can hear more about the wedding you have planned!

The price of your event is going to depend on a lot of your personal event details, such as:

  • What is your date? (Day of the week? Time of the year?)
  • How many guests are you expecting to attend?
  • Which menu/package you interested in?

We will work hard to work with your budget and the services you desire. Weddings held on weekdays, in off-season months, or in short-term time frames can also take advantage of our Weddings Specials, which can add up to thousands of dollars in savings!


The Wedding Day

We love seeing you add your personal touches to your wedding, so we try very hard not to limit your ideas. As a general rule, most decor items are allowed so long as they are self-supporting. Yes, we do allow candles to burn within an appropriate container. We just ask that go through all your decorating ideas with your wedding coordinator.

You will have access to the corresponding venue that you have booked and the immediate outdoor areas surrounding it. Because we are able to host multiple events at one time, and the estate is a private residence, there are some restricted areas of the property.

On the day of, an experienced event manger will be present to execute your event and all its details. Your personal Suite Hostess will also be available to assist you on your big day. However, your Avanti Mansion Wedding Coordinator will help you in the days leading up to your wedding by answering any questions, helping you select your menu, beverage options, timelines, and any other Avanti-related details.

All of our experiences are priced out for a five-hour event, or five and a half hours if your ceremony is onsite. We will discuss your personal wedding day timeline when we sit down and go though planning. If you would like to extend your event past the five-hour duration, make sure you speak to your wedding coordinator about those details.


The Planning Process

At the beginning of each year, we hold a large food tasting event for all of our clients getting married that year. Our chef selects about 20-25 different menu items to feature and for you to enjoy! We understand that excellent food is a very important component to your wedding day, so we will give you two complimentary tickets to that exciting event! We also have additional tickets for your friends or family to purchase, so they can experience the tasting with you!

You are more than welcome to bring in your own vendors (with the exception of food and beverage providers). Outside vendors that need to make deliveries or set up items for your event, will have access two hours prior to your event start time. These outside vendors will also need to sign a copy of our House Terms and Conditions form and provide insurance if necessary.

Avanti Mansion has many of its own in-house service providers that you may use for your event, including DJ, Photo booth, and baker. Since we are Certified Sandals Specialists, we can even help you book your Sandals honeymoon. We will also provide you with an exclusive list of Preferred Vendors, to further help you in the planning stages.

We are a full-service event planning company; therefore we have numerous items available for rent to enhance your event, including: special event lighting, photo booth, lounge furniture, flat-screen TV's, projectors, staging/risers, dance floors, specialty linens, and much more!

Now that you've reserved your event with us, the fun planning can begin! As soon as you're ready, you can sit down with your wedding coordinator to go through all your personalized details about your special day. She will ease through the planning process so that you have complete peace of mind when your day arrives, knowing that you will have a wonderful, stress-free wedding day!
