You probably already know this, but I would ask what’s included and not included.  It surprised me when some venues (solely wedding/event venues) said we would have to rent their chairs or linens. 

You also might want to ask what the sound system is like- if its outdoors do they have microphones and speakers already set up, or do you need your entertainment to bring it in (which could cost extra $$$).

 Have fun!!! 🙂

Be sure to ask questions like whether the venues allow open flame candles, water and flowers at their sites. These may be stupid questions but there are some places that do not allow candles or water (for centerpieces or decor) or even flowers. You don’t want to be surprised.
