Your venue is one of the most important aspects of your wedding, and you need to make sure that you pick somewhere that works for you. This may be a giant barn that’s transformed into a magical wonderland, a church hall that’s attached to the church you’ve been going to every weekend for your entire life, or perhaps a castle that makes all of your fairytale dreams come true. But before you book your wedding venue, make sure you ask these questions…
Is It Available?
Before you get too excited and imagine your whole day in this particular venue, you need to make sure that it’s available on the date that you want to get married. There’s a high chance that you know which date you want to get married before you see the venue for the first time, so it’s best that you don’t get your hopes up before confirming that they can cater your specific date.
What Are Your Packages Like?
Different venues have their own packages, so it’s important to make sure that you know what they can offer. There are some that will only offer the hiring of the venue, there are others that will offer food, there are others that will offer food and drink, and there are others that will offer everything included!
What Time Does The Party End?
If you and your partner are the kinds of people that want to have the wedding of all weddings, there’s a high chance that you want to make it a showstopper. This means the ultimate party, which will hopefully go on until you physically can’t dance anymore. However, there are some venues that have curfews for their guests and will make you leave the premises after a certain time.
Which Areas Will Be Available?
If you want to get married in a very large wedding venue, you need to clarify which areas you will be hiring. Will it be the whole thing? Will it just be one particular section? There are even some venues that cater for two weddings on the same day, so you might see some kind of overlap. Make sure you clarify this before you book, just in case you walk down the wrong aisle…
