Question’s to ask when looking for your perfect Wedding Venue

So many couples ask me what are the most important questions to ask a Wedding Venue that you like and whilst there are so many questions you need to ask to ensure you are both on the same page, here are a few questions to ask a venue during your showround…

(1) Do all prices include VAT and are there any hidden costs which I need to be aware of? Always a key question to help with your budgeting. (Also check with the venue as to whether they recommend contracting to lower guest numbers initially as the last thing you want it to be paying for guests who can’t attend!)

(2) If food is a really important element to your day, ask if you can have a menu tasting before hand. Even if you’ve eaten there before, most venues with internal caterers will have a different menu for weddings. (A further tip: if your looking to have external caterers, check that your venue allows these and if they charge for you doing so).

(3) Are there any restrictions in place? I.e. noise level restrictions, are fireworks allowed, can I bring my dog? Better to find out now than after you’ve booked a 20 piece band!

(4) Can I use any Wedding Suppliers? Most venues are flexible when it comes to you choosing your own suppliers but its always worth asking the question in case you have to use their caterers/florists etc.

(5) Is there space for me and my partner (plus bridesmaids, groomsmen etc.) to get ready in the morning? And would this incur an additional cost?

Hopefully these questions will give you a heads-up when it comes to viewing your favourite venues and don’t be afraid to ask many more questions to the teams working at Wedding Venues – its better to know what is/isn’t possible than finding out once its too late!
