How many are you going to?  I only went to my top 2 (after doing a month of research online, looking at pictures, rates, etc).

I just made sure everything I thought was correct (regarding the prices, what is included, who I was/was not allowed to bring in, the hours I would be getting, etc) was actually correct.

I didn’t go in with a list I guess, I just asked other questions as they came to me!  Most of the information I had requested in emails…so I already had their pricing, what is included, etc.

I did ask some question about where people usually put things. 

Like, where did they usually have the dance floor? 

Where did people usually put the cake? 

What type of decorating is not allowed? 

Are we responsible for cleanup and by what time? 

What time can I gain access to the venue for decorating?

Who is responsible for flipping the room (if you need it)?

Will there be someone from the venue on hand during?

Do you set up the tables or are we responsible for setting up the room?


Those are some of the types of things I think I asked.

Where did you look? I just saw your other post about South Jersey locations. All the places you listed sound nice, but not worth travelling to from North Jersey of SI. I would expand your search to some of the Vineyards (Valenzano, Laurita, Tommasello, to name a few), the Atlantic City venues, and the shore regions (try the McLoone’s places and there are a few nice places in Long Branch). These locations seem like they would be more worthy of a bit of a trip for both sides of your families. 

Keep us posted 🙂

Your questions need to be based on what you need and want. Needs first, then wants.

@annasaf83:  Can you tell me what the packages at The Mansion started off at? I assumed they were really pricey. Best of luck 🙂
