We thought so! Read on to begin…

Questions to Ask Wedding Venue

1. Is our wedding date available?

The most popular of the questions to ask your wedding venue? Your date! Find out if your date is available and, if so, how to book it to ensure your date is saved.

2. How many other weddings are booked on the same day?

It’s helpful to know how many other weddings are happening at the same time as yours. It’s fine if there are additional weddings the same day, as long as ample staff can handle the size of your event.

3. How much is the deposit?

Be very clear about how much you owe to reserve the date, when it is due, and how you can make a payment.

4. How many deposits are required?

If more than one deposit is required, find out when they are due and which method payment can be made.

5. Do we owe for “extra” costs?

These extra costs are sometimes in fine print and can include a cleaning fee, overtime charge, or gratuity. Make sure you get all the costs before signing anything.
