Best Questions To Ask When Picking A Wedding Venue

By Doug Fleming

Even though selecting a wedding venue sounds so simple, it may be a very challenging task. This really is simply because you'll find many important elements you'll need to consider when selecting one. Under are best ten questions to ask prior to booking your big day.

* What is the capacity of the wedding venue? No matter how much you like a wedding venue, think about the number of guests you've invited. Find out if the venue will make you slash your list of guests through getting more information on the seating convenience of the ceremony, for meal and dining as well as the capacity for dancing or standing.

* Is the wedding venue registered? If you are not religious or want to have your wedding ceremony and reception in the same place, find out if the venue is registered for a civil wedding. The venue may also be big. Find out which area in particular is licensed which means you don't end up with an indoor ceremony when you preferred the great outdoors.

* What services do they offer in relation to catering services? If you're working with a budget, find out if the venue has its own own caterers or if you will be instructed to make use of your own. If you want to use your own caterers, stay away from venues that don't allow this or which tend to have their own list of suppliers. Keep in mind that a venue that allows you to hire your own caterers, gives you control over food prices as well as food quality. If you are in love with a wedding venue that doesn't allow you to bring in your own caterers, try to work out an agreement that is inclusive of the venue cost.

* What is the bar costs? If you don't want an alcohol free wedding, find out if the venue you choose has any hidden costs on alcohol. Some venues charge ridiculous prices that may negatively affect the atmosphere even if there is a free bar. If you don't wish to be worried about high alcohol costs in your wedding day, consider other available choices.

* How long will you have to set up or remove? Some venues will require care of this for you. Some will expect you to do that on your own. If you will be the one to take care of this, come up with intend to avoid last minute rush.

* Is the venue available on your wedding day? Don't book a wedding venue if it's not going to be on your special day. For those who have any concerns in regards to the venue having multiple weddings in your big day, choose one where you will have an exclusive use.

* Will there be an on-site coordination? Some venues provide onsite help that may include MC services. When there is none or trust your own MC, it is simple to hire your own.

* What time will the party be asked to end? Choose a venue that allows you to enjoy a party based in your own party preferences.

Prior to you making any final decisions, make sure the wedding venue has support plans for bad weather and if there is an onsite accommodation for you or your guests. Make sure to opt for your gut instincts.
