Hi! Hopefully this is the write place to post this. My caterer has asked to schedule a meetup with me to do a walkthrough at my venue (reception and ceremony at the same place). I don’t know what I should ask the caterer? Also I’ve read elsewhere that I should also do a walkthrough with my other vendors (DJ, photography, videography, musicians, etc…) When are you supposed to schedule these walkthroughs? Am I supposed do walkthroughs like 5 times? With different people each time?

If any of my vendors need to do a walk-through I’m giving them my on-site day-of coordinator’s information and she can give them the information they need or a walk-through, I think they just want to see what equipment they should bring vs what the venue already has, where to set up, how to get things handled the day-of, etc. I’m not sure what I would ask any of them though, I have a feeling they would be the one with the questions (where do you want us, etc)

@mochamint: Have you done a tasting for the caterer? They should pretty much know how everything works (when to refill appetizers and stuff). Are you having anything specific for silverware or linens? I think the only other one that would be a good idea would be the photographer. But I am crazy for the photography part. If they have shot the location before they should have some pointers. DJ you give a list of no-plays and let them do their thing. Do you know where they will be? Other than that it is their job to figure out power cords and stuff.
