Questions You Need to Ask Your Venue

Selecting the right venue for your event is one of the most important elements of your wedding planning. Below are the most important questions to ask when looking at a potential site for your ceremony and/or  reception.

How much is the deposit?

When is it due?

Is any portion refundable, if we must cancel?

What are my room set up options for the number of guest I expect?

How many hours do we get on-site on the day of the wedding?

When do all rentals, etc. need to be removed from the venue?

Who would be the day-of contact and are they on site the entire day?

Do you have a list of preferred providers, e.g. caterers, florists?

Do you have in-house catering? Do you HAVE TO use your caterer?

What are the AV options? Is it included in the price of the venue?

Is there a bride’s room and a groom’s room?

What are the recommended areas for D.J., guestbook, buffet, etc.?

What are their linen colors? (If applicable.)

Look at restrooms your guests will use.

What is the parking situation, is there an option for valet? Can you be dropped off very close to the front door? After all you don’t want to be traipsing through a parking lot in your wedding dress!

Do they allow open flame candles, are there other decoration restrictions?

Asking a few simple questions will not only save you headache and heartache down the road, but can potentially save you a lot of money as well! Here is list of Oregon & SW Washington venues that will be perfect for your next event.
