Recently engaged? Congratulations!
You may be ready to dive headfirst into picking your location, but before you do, here are a few must-ask questions for your prospective wedding venue.
How many events does the venue hold each day?
When picking a venue, you’re going to want to make sure that they are not holding a smorgasbord of other events the same day as your wedding.
This way, you’re ensuring there’s enough staffing for your wedding and enough time to set up and break down, without the stress of other busy events. You want to know that you are being accommodated for on your special day!
What is the parking situation at your venue?
This is a detail often-overlooked. Find out how much parking is available for your guests. Is there enough for your anticipated headcount? Is there a drop off area for the elderly or disabled? Be sure to scope out the situation before signing on the dotted line.
What is specifically included in the price?
Read through your contract thoroughly and be clear on what specifically is covered in the price. Think food and beverage minimums.
You also should ask about bringing in your own rentals like tables and chairs. If it is an outdoor wedding, make sure you talk to them about your wedding tent and what you will need to do in order to prepare for your tent installation on the property.
