Alright ladies, lets face it….planning a wedding can be HARD. It is even more challenging when you are in the middle of a pandemic. Am I right or am I right? There is so much do and time goes oh so fast.
Picking the right venue is one of those BIG decisions to nail down and is a large factor in your big day!
When choosing the perfect venue, you want it to not only have the vibe and atmosphere that you envision but also have the accessibility for all your ideas you have planned while on site! Sorting out the technical details with the venue BEFORE booking is so important! I can not stress this enough! I could share story after story of wedding venue nightmares or hidden fees that were not addressed upon booking.
Before booking your venue, reference these important questions to ask your wedding Venue!
