So my fiance has appointments tomorrow with four banquets and he is going to check them out for me since we are apart from each other (yay to long distance relationship!) and he will be taking pictures and videos… however! I need to give him a list of questions to ask each place so we can narrow down the choices to book a venue soon.
What questions should be asked to determine the right place? any inputs? Thanks.

I asked these questions:
What is the food and beverage minimum?
I also asked about any other fees, such as the service charge and tax. (most times, i received a per plate cost and i didnt factor in those or the food and beverage min)
If you are planning to do a sweets table, will they also charge you? (one place said $5.00 per person, another didnt charge at all)
I would also ask if the price they are showing is or will be locked for you b/c sometimes the price gets higher the following year.
I would also ask if there is a cake cutting fee.
Hope it helps!

Make sure you ask if you can use any vendors or only certain ones
Get a copy of their rental contract, and make sure you read it carefully
Definately ask about a service charge
Good luck to you!

Min/max number of guests? Tax and gratuity? When will you have access to the room to decorate? Deposit? Fee for security? Fee for cake cutting?
