Hiring a Wedding Venue? Five Questions to Ask

So you’re getting married. The ring is on your finger and it’s time to start planning. You need to organise a lot of things, the food, the drink, the music and of course, the venue. All of these things come together to make your day an event that you will cherish while it’s happening – and will remember the rest of your life with your spouse.

When it comes time to book your venue, you’re going to want to be as informed as possible about what exactly they can provide and how they can help – the more you know the less stressed you’ll be!

So, when looking at potential wedding venues in, ask the venue these five questions.

How Much is the Venue, and How Much of a Deposit Will they Require?

This is one of the first questions that you should ask a potential venue, so you know exactly how much you need to budget for. This will also help in your search for venues, as you’ll be able to rule out the ones that are out of your price range quite quickly.

Can They Host the Ceremony and the Reception?

Some places are hired out for receptions only. It is worth asking if the same place is capable of hosting your ceremony as well. Only having to worry about one venue, for one price, is a great advantage to have when you are planning your wedding.

Can They Cater?

A venue that can cater for your guests is worth its weight in gold. All you have to do is sit back, have some champagne and enjoy your special day in comfort, knowing that amazing food and drink will be served on time. Also, it’s important to check if…

They Can Cater for Everyone?

People these days have a variety of dietary requirements. Vegetarian, vegan, lactose free, gluten free and everything else! You’ll want to check that your wedding reception venue are able to cater for the varying needs of your friends and family – so that everyone can be fed and be merry. Read more about our restaurants in the Eat and Drink section.

What About the Entertainment?

No wedding is complete without a good old dance at the reception. You’ll want to ask your venue about their capabilities to host your entertainment. Can they provide a band or DJ, or will you need to hire one? The sample applies to sound, lighting, microphones and all the other aspects of your entertainment – can they provide it or will you need to hire it or ask around your circle of friends and family? These are things that you need to know to make sure that you and your guests have an amazing time at the reception!
