Venue shopping can be stressful. Make it a little easier with these tips and tricks to get the most out of venue shopping.
ASK ABOUT A RAIN PLAN
Make sure venues with outdoor space have a go-to vendor for unpredictable weather.
THINK MORNING OF
Find out if there is a bridal suite where you can see your first look, hang with your bridesmaids and groomsmen, or just have some privacy!
UNCOVER HIDDEN FEES
Many venues have hidden admin fees they don't advertise. We all know weddings add up - so find out before you sign.
ASK ABOUT HOTEL PARTNERS
Good venues get discounts for their clients at upscale hotels nearby. Find out what the venue offers to make it easier on your guests.
CHECK OUT THE BATHROOMS
You may not think this is important but guess again! Many venues have bathrooms that are inadequate for a wedding - in size and cleanliness!
FIND OUT WHAT'S INCLUDED
Some venues come with rentals or other elements that could make it easier to stick to your budget.
Is the venue on a quiet street? Was it easy to get to? Put yourself in the mindset of your guests who will be traveling to your venue.
EXPERIENCE EVENT FLOW
Get a feel for how your guests would move through the space.
