Questions to Ask Your Wedding Venue

Getting the right venue for your wedding is not easy. It is more than aesthetics and you have to pay attention to how they handle events. Your wedding venue is not something that you can joke with as you will be linked to it for the rest of your lives.

After you’ve researched on ideal venues and you’re ready to go on tour, there is one more thing to be done. What’s left is to make a list of important questions that you need to ask your wedding venue. As you make your list, please do your best to not forget the following:

  • What Is Your Availability Around Our Ideal Dates?

As obvious as this question is, it can often skip the mind. You have to do your best to ensure that a venue you are considering is available on your wedding date. If it won’t be available, there is no need even checking it out. So, make sure to ask this question as soon as you can if you have not already done so.

  • What Is the Venue Capacity?

Your wedding venue should have enough space for the number of guests you are bringing. If you’re having a wedding of 100 people, your venue should be able to handle that. Don’t also forget to include the number of vendors that will show up. A venue that is too big will have you spending too much to make it look less forlorn. Imagine hearing echoes at your wedding! A venue that is too small could turn out to be a health hazard. The best kind of wedding venue will feel just right and can comfortably house everyone. 

  • What Is Your Cancellation Policy?

Couples learnt the hard way when it came to this question this year. Before booking a venue, ask of the cancellation policy and make sure you are both fine with it. You should be able to move your wedding date without any hassles if need be. We’re not saying something unwanted will happen, but it’s best to be prepared for that eventuality.

  • Do You Offer Catering?

A venue that offers catering can be a good idea depending on your wedding plans. Do you already have an external caterer in mind? If you do, then you probably want to avoid a venue that won’t let you bring one. If you don’t, having your venue handle your catering can save you the time and money you’d spend looking for one. This question is useful and important so don’t forget to ask it.  

  • Do You Allow Overnight Stays?

Many couples are opting for weekend long celebrations these days. If this is your case, you should probably go for a venue that has accommodation on site or nearby. That way, you have all your guests in one place for your wedding and celebrate easily. If you’ll be having a wedding that ends at midnight, a venue that allows overnight stays is the best to use.
