6 Questions to Ask When You Tour A Wedding Venue

Touring wedding venues is exciting and, sometimes, a little stressful. Most people have never made a decision like this before and don’t even know where to begin. Don’t worry, here at NOAH’S we have venues all across the country and host hundreds of events every year. We want to make this process easy! When it comes to a tour, you want to be dazzled when you walk in, of course. If your first impression isn’t “wow!” then it won’t be for your guests either. However, while you’re being dazzled, you don’t want to forget to ask the important questions. What are those questions exactly? We’ve outlined 6 of the most important questions for your wedding venue tour below!

 

 

1. What is your vendor policy?

 

A venue’s vendor policy is the factor that will likely have the biggest impact on your wedding day, and it’s probably the one that you’ve never heard of. Essentially, the vendor policy simply means who they allow you to bring in for your wedding day. Some venues have certain vendors, like caterers, florists, and photographers, that you are required to use if you book with them. At NOAH’S, we have an open vendor policy. This means that you can bring in any vendor that fits your budget and will make your big day everything that you’ve imagined. If you aren’t sure where to start looking for vendors, our preferred vendor list can also help you find the perfect people for you! Want to learn more about why an open-vendor policy is so key? Check out this blog all about it! 

 

 

2. What’s included in the reservation?

 

You want to get the most that you can out of your venue. The four walls of the room you are reserving, while important, should only be one of many things that are included. At NOAH’S, you also get all of your tables and chairs, as well as the setup and takedown of them, all of your technology needs (such as a television, projector, or mics), and customizable uplighting in every reservation! We also have our knowledgeable event staff on hand to help with anything you need during your event!

 

 

3. What additional decor or personalization options do you offer?

 

You don’t want your wedding to feel basic. You want it to feel like you! It’s important that you find a venue that has the ability to be personalized to match your style. This question is perfect for a wedding venue tour because you can see how those options would look in the actual space. At NOAH’S, we offer unique backdrop and ceiling decor options, such as our dangling Edison Bulbs and grand Spoke Ceiling. These kinds of details make it easy to make a venue truly match the vision for your celebration. 

 

 

4. How many people can fit with various layouts?

 

This is probably the most obvious wedding venue tour question on our list, but it is so important. You’ll want to be specific with your questions. How many people can fit comfortably at round tables? What about banquet tables? There are also a bunch of other things to consider. Where will you put your dessert and head tables? How will those fit? Do you want a dance floor and, thus, less room for seating? You’ll want to make sure that, no matter how beautiful, the venue will actually work for the logistics of your big day.

 

 

5. What different rooms/spaces do you offer?

 

A simple ballroom may meet all of the essentials for your wedding, but if that’s all that you’re getting out of your reservation, you’re missing out! While our venues may vary slightly, each one has a dedicated Ceremony Room, Main Hall, and other dressing and meeting rooms that can be reserved for your big day. These rooms allow you to have variation from ceremony to reception or space to spread out on your wedding day without the inconvenience of having to drive from location to location. Opting for everything to take place in one space, including getting ready and taking photos, can make your big day even better.

 

 

6. What are your payment plan options?

 

Your venue should be one of the first things that you reserve for your wedding day. This will help lock down your date and give you more time to pay off this big and important purchase. However, your venue should work with you to make that process as easy and stress-free on you and your wallet as possible. Be sure to ask about their options for payment plans so that you know what to expect and can plan accordingly.

 

 

These six questions for a tour will help make finding the perfect wedding venue as easy as possible. Want to test them out?
