8 Questions to Ask Before Booking Your Wedding Reception Site
Selecting a wedding venue is one of one of the most time-consuming items on your wedding planning to-do list. To be sure you’re spending your money (and time) wisely, Perfect Wedding Guide expert Susan Southerland shares eight questions to ask before booking your reception site.
Question #1: What comes with my rental fee or my food and beverage package?
Question #2: Does the caterer include equipment or do you have to rent it?
Question #3: How do you charge for service people?
Question #4: Do you have any additional fees?
Question #5: How many hours do I have the facility and personnel.
Question #6: Do you have decorations I can use? Some locations have items in-house like plants, latticework, votive candles and even centerpieces that you can use. That can be a huge money-saver.
Question #7: What other events are taking place at the location and how do you have it scheduled?
