Choosing a wedding location can be very time consuming and confusing. Be sure to “shop” around. It is important that you visit each location where you are interested in having your wedding. If the wedding venue has a website, view the website and try to get as much information as possible. If you saw something online that is not mentioned during your meeting, ask about it.
Talk with the wedding planner(s) – coordinator(s) regarding your wedding. You need to make sure the capabilities of the wedding location meet your needs. Take notes during each meeting; names, phone numbers, email addresses, etc. If you get confused or don’t understand something, ask for it to be explained.
You need to be comfortable with not only the wedding venue, but also the people you will be working with. Communication is very important. You need to be able to ask anything even if they already explained it. Ask! Better to ask a couple of times, then to assume you remember the answer. Open communication is a must. How is the contact to be made? Email? Telephone? Both?
Don’t take the word of one venue about another venue. See the venue yourself, talk to the venue yourself and ask the venue yourself. Don’t rely on another venue saying, “they don’t do this, they require that, etc.”, find out for yourself.
