There’s more to the perfect wedding venue than just the aesthetics (though good looks are extremely important on your wedding day). There are all sorts of important details you’ll need to cover before you sign on the dotted line. We’ve asked some past and future brides for the key questions they asked when they were searching for their wedding venue. You’ll want to ask these before you book.
Pricing and Availability
Ideally, you would want your wedding to be the only wedding happening at that venue on your wedding day to avoid any confusion for your guest or the feeling of rushing your special day. If you’re not guaranteed to be the only event that day, find out how much it would cost to do a complete buyout, as well as ask about how the staff handles having multiple events at once.
If your venue doesn’t require you to use their vendors, ask if there are any they recommend most highly. A vendor who is familiar with your venue will already know the quirks and challenges of the space, which will make your planning process that much easier.
