Questions to Ask a Wedding Venue before Booking One

So you have searched for ‘wedding venues near me’ and prepared a list of your favourites. What next? You need to visit the actual site and analyse whether it is suitable for you or not. But, before you tour the Sydney wedding venue and book one, there are certain questions that you need to ask the venue. Even if you fall in love with a place, it is essential to ask a few questions as it will be helpful for planning your wedding.

Here is a list of questions to ask the wedding reception venues in Sydney:-

Is the venue available on the date?

If you have a specific date on your mind, maybe it is a valentine’s day or the day you confessed your love, you have to find out whether the venue is available on a particular date or not. If the date is not available, but you like the place, either you have to be flexible with the dates or move on to another venue when it comes to selecting a date. If you are flexible with the dates, it won’t be an issue.

Does the venue provide accommodation?

Will the venue be able to provide accommodation to your guest who travels a long distance to attend your wedding? If the wedding is in your city or hometown, then it could be easy to travel. But, if you are hosting in a venue that is far away from your location, you need to accept elderly guests and other people who may have trouble traveling.

What is the capacity?

This is one of the important questions you need to ask the venue since many places have strict capacity rules. If you are expecting more guests, consider a big venue or trimming your guest list. However, you wouldn’t want to have a few guests in a large space as it will look empty.

Is there adequate parking space?

Parking is one of the important factors you need to consider when looking for a venue. Ensure there is enough space for parking in the venue and find out if they could arrange a parking site to accommodate your guest.

Do they have in-house catering?

One of the most important questions you need to ask is – do they have in-house catering, or you need to bring in an outside caterer? The all-inclusive venue can be convenient. Taste the food before you set the menu.

What does space look like?

Just imagine yourself getting married in the place you have chosen. Does it fit your style? If you are concerned about architectural or décor aspects, choose a place that has it. If you are planning for a rustic-style wedding, an elegant hotel will work well.
