Questions to ask your wedding venue

Before you can make any of the detailed decisions about your wedding you need to know where you will be holding your big day. You might already know where you want your wedding reception. Perhaps you hold romantic visions of a castle or if a country girl at heart then I’m sure the barns will draw you in. There are many factors to consider when choosing a venue, for example:
  1. Will the wedding take place where you currently live or where you were bought up?  Think about whether you want a city location or would prefer to be surrounded by the countryside. If guests are travelling far then good access would be appreciated. Is it necessary for you to have exclusivity or would the general public wandering around add to the ambience.
  2. If you are unaware of venues in the area you wish to marry then you need to start the sometimes tedious and time consuming task of researching. To be successful use a range of methods when trying to find the best venue.
To help you make an informed decision Hitched have created a gorgeous infographic with lots of helpful questions to ask when you are looking around your favourite venues. I thought it looked so cute I wanted to share with you. You might also find this article useful I wrote a few years ago with tips on choosing your venue.

    Nice infographic and great information in the article too! It’s probably worth adding that there are a number of venues that are very good at charging for extras and don’t include a number of things in their standard price – a bit cheeky in my opinion and I know a least one that even charges an extra fee for plugging in fairy lights! Is that really fair or just another wedding rip off?
