It’s important to be prepared while looking for the perfect venue, that is why we have put together our list of 5 important question to ask while on your hunt, so keep reading!

1) What Is Your Availability Around Our ideal dates? 

This one is obviously a simple one, but it can slip your mind at times. If you are thinking of a spring or summer wedding, it’s important to act fast! Many venue’s book up fairly quickly this time of year.  It’s important to ask your venue what availability they have around the dates that you would like to get married. This way you can plan accordingly, and everyone is happy. 

2) What Is the Venue Capacity? 

This is a very important question to ask. If you are planning on inviting 100 of your closest family and friend, you definitely want to make sure that your venue can hold that capacity. This way everything runs smoothly, and everyone is comfortable. For example, the Oaks has 15 beautifully appointed rooms for guests and makes a perfect destination wedding venue.

3) What Is Your Cancellation Policy? 

It’s important to find out what their cancellation policy is so that there are no surprises if you have to move the date for example.  We strongly recommend looking into wedding insurance with cancelation coverage as well. Obviously, no one wants that, but things do happen.

4) Do You Offer Catering 

No one wants a room filled with hungry guest, and we are pretty sure that’s not going happen, but it’s always important to ask if your venue offers catering. One, this may save you money, which who can argue with that! Also, you can save some time in your search to find a good catering company. And some venues, like The Oaks, even include food and bar services in their packages!

5) Do you allow overnight stays? 

Weekend Wedding getaways have become pretty popular these days! Many people are extending their Big Day into a Big Weekend and inviting their wedding guests and family to celebrate the entire weekend! For this you’ll definitely want to consider booking a venue with rooms on site for the ultimate in relaxation and convenience.
