Honestly, I think it’s unreasonable to expect the venue to not book a wedding before yours so you can set up your lighting.  If you need 3 hours for the lighting set-up, move everything 1 – 1.5 hours later and pay for the extra set-up time.

I booked a venue that only hosts one wedding per day, so this wouldn’t be an issue.  I’m certain that extra set-up time could be purchased for a price.

A wedding venue is a business. Businesses only continue to exist if they make money. If they have  chance to book a wedding or any other function before yours, they will.

If you need to ensure a minimum of 3 hrs before your wedding for set-up book and pay for those 3 hrs.

Yeah that is so odd that they would book 2 such large events in one day.  How does that work?  I have my venue for about 5 or so hours before hand but I am going to talk to them about setting up much earlier as I need time for hair and makeup and etc (since I am setting up).  

But my wedding is the only event that day (if there was no event the day before mine, I woud have been able to set up the day before as well).
