5 Questions to Ask Your Wedding Venue

5 Questions to Ask Your Wedding VenueYour wedding venue sets the scene for your special day, which is why it’s such an important decision when wedding planning. Choosing a venue is typically the first major wedding-day decision that engaged couples make. But there’s more to pay attention to when reviewing venues than simply the location and ambiance. An event venue’s policies can dramatically affect whether or not you’re able to bring your vision to life. There are several important questions to ask your wedding venue before you finalize it as the spot where you celebrate your “I do.”

Will there be other weddings hosted at the venue?

Some venues host events in rooms next to each other, so the noise and activity at one can be disruptive to the other. At Texas Old Town, this is never an issue because each individual wedding location at our venue features its own private ceremony site, reception hall, guest parking lot, and scenic¬†grounds. Another wedding won’t interfere with yours.

Is there a payment plan offered?

Payment plans help you manage your wedding budget and stay on track. Before you commit, ask about payment options and if there is a payment schedule.

Am I required to use the venue’s preferred vendors?

Some venues require that you pick your vendors from a pre-determined list of preferred companies. Ask upfront if this is something your venue pick requires and what flexibility they allow.

When can I set-up at the venue and when do my guests need to be out?

Ask about the time allowances and restrictions with your venue so you can plan your wedding day timeline accordingly.

Are there any hidden costs?

Consider additional costs and fees, such as gratuity, services charges and tax, that may be charged in addition to the package pricing presented to you. How to avoid hidden wedding venue charges? Ask about hidden charges early so you can plan accordingly with your wedding budget.
