Questions to ask your wedding venue

Ok, so now you are happily engaged, what’s next in the grand scheme of wedding planning? Well one of the first things- after working out your budget and deciding on how many guests you are going to invite- you need to decide on where you are going to get married.

When a couple starts looking for a wedding venue, too often they fall in love with the beauty of the place and sign a contract before they’ve considered the practicalities.

The Wedding Directory has compiled a list of important questions to ask your venue before making your final decision-

  • Do they have an in-house caterer, make sure to check to see if you like the food they provide? (make sure you taste it!)
  • Do they allow for outside catering companies?
  • Do they have adequate bathroom facilities?
  • What’s the cancellation policy (you never know)?
  • What are the payment options? What kind of deposit is required?
  • Are there any hidden costs? (Before you sign the contract, read it carefully.)
  • What are the overtime charges?
  • Do they have a liquor license?
  • Will they allow you to bring your own liquor?
  • Does the wedding venue already own a sound system with adequate speakers or will that need to be brought in?
  • Is there a space for the bride and groom to change and/or relax before hand?
  • Who will be supervising before the day of your wedding? Who will be supervising and troubleshooting on the day of your wedding? Can you meet them now?
  • Are candles or other open flames allowed?
  • If its an outdoor location, do they have any backup plans for bad weather?
