Questions to Ask Before Signing a Wedding Venue Contract

February 27, 2019

Looking for wedding venues is not an easy task. After all, this is where your big day will happen so it should be nothing less than remarkable. There is so much to factor in, the aesthetic appeal, location, services and the price. As such, having a deep understanding of what you are presented with can help you in finalising your decisions. Here are some important questions you should ask before signing your wedding venue contract.

Will the space be enough?

How many people do you want to invite? Does the venue have enough space to accommodate all of your guests? Make sure that you do not try to squeeze everything into a tight space, as you want enough room for your guests to move around comfortably.

Is it available on the date you want?

If you have chosen a wedding date that has significance to you and your partner, you need to find a venue that is available on that day. However, it is important to remember that wedding venues may be booked, so keep another date in mind, just in case.

What is the decoration policy?

If you are planning to decorate your wedding venue, make sure to ask the coordinator if they have any decoration policies in place. If available, bring some pictures and sketches of your decorations as an example of what you have planned so they know what to expect.

Are there any noise restrictions?

As much as you might want to dance the night away, you have to check if the venue is okay with that first. Some establishments in the city or with overnight rooms tend to limit the time for events though country clubs are often all right with this.

What amenities do they offer?

Ask if they offer disabled accessibility, special parking, security or any other miscellaneous rentals that could be useful to you. It will also be good to know how flexible they are with their catering and bar services, so you can tick off another detail on your wedding planning list.

What is the total cost?

Calculate the total cost and arrange the terms of payment. Enquire whether extra fees will be charged if the wedding exceeds the allotted time frame. By knowing all these details, you can avoid running into hidden costs or surprise charges.
