Probably another good thing to look at/ask about is how/where you will keep any warm foods, warm.  Not sure what kind of foods they might be having, but that was something that we had to consider.  Also take a look at how you might want to set things up, do you need a tent, dance floor, is there room for an aisle?  Things like that.

Is there room for parking and what about the neighbors and noise? Is there enough electricity available outside for music, microphone (if needed for vows), lighting at night?

Cleaning service the day after, too, if there’s going to be any part of the wedding that is indoors.

Make sure street parking is available and allowed.

Most of what I thought of was covered here, but in line with thinking of amplification for vows and any music, you might want to inquire about local noise restrictions. Some neighborhoods have requirements that are more strict than local code, especially if there’s an HOA. Are there any neighbors who may be prone to complain? Also might want to ask if there are any potential issues with the neighbors doing something loud at the same time. My next door neighbor has a compulsive habit of mowing her lawn, while it may not be like that, just something to think about.

@mightywombat:  I agree with asking about parking. I’m imagining Father of the Bride where the 2 kids had to help valet because there was no parking! Ha!
