Securing your wedding venue isn’t just a huge relief to check off your to-do list, but it sets the stage for the remainder of your planning leading up to the big day. There’s a lot that weighs on your decision, and some important questions that you need to ask before writing that deposit check.
Thus far, the recurring theme of your planning process has probably been ‘where do I start?’ and that’s normal! Luckily, when it comes to your venue, there are some basic evergreen questions that can quickly determine whether or not you should move forward.
Making sure the venue is available for your ideal wedding date (or date range) is step number one. Take note of the difference in price between the busy season and the off-season as well – if you and your fiancé are flexible with your timeline, this is good to know for your dream venue. Knowing how many guests they can accommodate also helps to map out your guest list.
Having a site visit gives you the opportunity to visualize what your wedding day will look like as well as work out logistics with your venue manager. Come prepared with a list of questions such as, how many hours are included in the reservation or if they offer any all-inclusive wedding packages and what they entail. If a venue provides any equipment or rentals, it can save you a significant amount of money and stress throughout your planning process.
