During your wedding planning journey, it is inevitable that you will be touring multiple potential wedding venues. To ensure that you aren’t settling and can find the venue that most closely meets your needs, there are certain questions that must be asked. Here are the questions to ask your potential wedding venue!
How Many Hours Are Included?
With a wedding ceremony and wedding reception, your special day can turn into an all-day affair. When touring a potential venue, don’t be afraid to ask how many hours are included with the cost and how much additional hours cost. This is important in sticking to your predetermined budget while ensuring nothing during the day is rushed or cut short.
Are There Any Vendor Restrictions?
It is not uncommon for a potential wedding venue to have vendor restrictions or contracts that require you to utilize their, or a partner’s, catering services. In the best-case scenario, you will want to find a venue that allows you to cater from outside to save money. For those interested in STOKELY as a potential wedding venue, we have no restrictions on outside food or drinks!
Do You Have a Private Area?
When preparing for your wedding or wedding reception, you will likely want a private area to change or freshen up. These areas will often include a restroom with a mirror and changing area that can be utilized by the bride and groom. If they aren’t provided, you may have to rent a hotel room nearby, adding to costs.
What if There is Inclement Weather?
Inclement weather can put a huge damper on your special day if it is supposed to be outdoors. For this reason, it is important to make sure your potential wedding venue has a plan in place for inclement weather. This is a crucial consideration that is unnecessarily avoided.
