Selecting your wedding venue means a big piece to your wedding puzzle has been secured in place.

While wedding venues may differ in terms of location, style and set up, there are a set list of questions to ask your specific venue prior to your wedding day.

What time can my vendors arrive to set up?

Vendors always need to know what time they are allowed into wedding venues to begin set up for weddings.

Finding this out from your venue in advance will help your vendors to build their timelines and coordinate details so that the setup is seamless and on schedule for your wedding.

Who is my day-of contact?

Here is something most brides don’t realize: your contact during the planning process may not be your contact on the day of your wedding. Ask in advance who your venue’s day-of contact will be. If your wedding will be handed off to someone new for the day of the affair, try to schedule a time to meet with this person to review your details and ensure you have a day-of contact phone number for this person, not just for you but for your vendors too!

Can I bring my stuff prior to my wedding day? Do you have a place to store it?

To lighten your stress load the day of your wedding, you may wish to ask if you can drop off favors, ceremony items and other belongings in advance. Wedding venues can often accommodate this need by  by providing a safe place for you to store your things in the days leading up to your wedding.

How and when do you receive final payment? What if guests I already paid for don’t show up for the wedding?

It’s wise to discuss the payment schedule and structure early on in your planning process so that you are financially prepared for the day of your wedding. Wedding venues will each have their own policies when it comes to no-shows so it’s best to knock out these conversations in advance to avoid any surprises.

Will I have access to a bridal room?

Knowing this will help you build your day-of timeline. If you do have access to a bridal room, you may choose to get ready (think hair, makeup, dress) at the venue. You may also wish to ask if you will have access to the bridal room throughout the affair so that you can store personal items or use it as a changing room (if changing gowns) or even to just take a breather!

Armed with these questions to ask wedding venues, you’ll be able to better plan your big day and avoid any surprises.
