Hi! Here are some questions I asked.  Hope this helps and good luck!


1. What will be the layout for the ceremony/cocktail hour/reception?

2. What are the indoor/outdoor options?

3. What are some good locations for photographs?

4. What are the costs for children’s meals/vendor meals/cake-cutting/corking, etc.

5. What is the server/guest ratio?

6. What are the table sizes/shapes/options?

7. Any restrictions on decorations? (i.e. exposed flame, things on walls, etc.)

8. How does valet parking work, if necessary?

9. What, if any, extra equipment is required for the DJ/Band vs. what they provide?

10. When is the final headcount due?
