You’ve landed the fiancee. Now it’s time to nail down your venue. Picking a venue can be an overwhelming process. Here are a few tips for booking the venue that’s perfect for you. It’s time to start the process of creating the wedding of your dreams…
Wedding Venue Booking Tip #1
Consider an “off-season” month. Many venues (including The N) offer a discount for “off-season” months. The difference in a March wedding versus a May date, or picking a date in July versus June could save you some big bucks. Contact The N to receive more information on our “off-season” pricing.
Wedding Venue Booking Tip #2
Know your budget, and watch out for hidden fees. Find out what’s included (and what’s not) with the venue booking. Items such as tables, chairs, linens, etc. may not be included so you’ll need to consider the cost of renting those items in addition to the cost of renting your venue. Contact us to learn what is included with your wedding venue rental at The N.
Wedding Venue Booking Tip #3
Have a Plan B in place in the event of inclement weather. There’s no reason rain or cold weather should put a damper on your wedding day. Having an indoor option for your ceremony is an absolute must. Formulating a backup plan for photography locations is important, too.
Wedding Venue Booking Tip #4
Ask questions when you tour the venue. Print out a handy-dandy list of questions, and have a pen ready. (The N provides a folder of information, pricing, and other details on each tour, however, we encourage any questions or concerns when viewing the property. Contact us to set up a tour.
Wedding Venue Booking Tip #5
Book a venue which allows you to bring in your own vendors. Many venues require you use their preferred vendors for your wedding & reception. Sometimes those specific vendors can end up being way out of your budget. At The N, we welcome any vendors of your choice. It’s your day. It should be your choice.
Wedding Venue Booking Tip #6
Choose a venue with good reviews. Customer service is huge. Read reviews and ask around before booking a venue. Some great sites with lots of wedding vendor reviews are: Wedding Wire, The Knot, Facebook, and Google.
