Hi there,

I just got engaged and am hoping you could tell me more about your venue before I make an appointment to come visit.  I’m looking to get married in March 2013 so I’d like to know your availabilities around that month first.  If you could also send me your pricing information as well, that would be helpful.  Also, is there anything else included in renting your venue, like chairs and tables, or do you have specific vendor requirements?

Any extra information about your venue that you can give me would be so helpful.

Thanks!

Mellie

OH, and one thing that drove me INSANE about vendors, is that a lot of them just flat out won’t tell you their pricing until you’ve either communicated a crap ton, or until you meet.  I started getting very forward trying to get monetary information and would ask over and over before I answered any of their questions.  So odd!

If the venue would be providing dinner I would ask for their menu.  Our venue provided a menu for hors d’oeuvres, dinner, and buffet.  Included were the prices for each meal per plate.  Really helped us make a realistic budget and we comparison shopped with other vendors that gave us their menues and prices for food.

Also ask if the venues’ staff would be responsible for the setup and takedown of the reception decor.  At mine I just have to bring the stuff in and they set it up the way I want and when it is over they will take everything down and deliver it to our room.  It didn’t cost us any extra.  But at a wedding I went to this summer the venue did not offer that and the bride, groom, and wedding party had to do it all themselves – super stressed bride and groom!  And they were stuck there late taking down everything.
