You’ve gotten the ring, the handsome groom-to-be and you’re ready to plan the wedding of your dreams. Now what? One of the first things you and your groom should decide on is the wedding venue. You should have an idea of the time of year you want to get married and what part of the country you want to get married. If you’re staying close to home, then you can make it easy to find CT wedding venues.
If you have a dream of a destination wedding, then the planning takes on a few more steps than you might think. Either way, there are a few things to ask your potential wedding venue when you’ve decided. Here are a few ideas to keep in mind and make sure you get answered before signing up for the venue.
What Dates Are Available?
You know when you want to get married. Be sure you talk with the venue as soon as possible as most of the popular Connecticut wedding venues can book up quite quickly. Be sure to ask what dates are open around the date you want to get married. Also, talk with your groom and decide if you both can have some leeway if one weekend is open and the one you wanted is not.
One of the first things you also need to discuss is the rental fee and deposit required. You want to make sure it is budgeted ahead of time for your chosen venue. Planning a wedding can be very difficult on the budget if you are not thinking ahead of schedule and planning for the prices that the items will cost.
Be sure to discuss what the alternative plans are if you’re having an outdoor wedding and the weather is not cooperating. You want to know what the venue has in mind if the weather makes it impossible to go with your first plan.
Choosing your wedding venue can be a fun and exciting experience as long as you keep these questions in mind.
