Jan 8, 2019

If you’re visiting a potential outdoor wedding venue, make sure you make the most of your tour. Ask the right questions and take notes while you are there. That way you can refer to your notes when you’re deciding which venue to choose.

Here is a list of questions to ask when visiting an outdoor wedding venue.

What time should the ceremony start?

Can we take photographs on the venue grounds? Are any areas off limits?

How do you make the reception area private if it’s outdoors?

Where will cocktail hour take place?

Where will the formal reception take place?

Can I bring in a DJ and dance floor?

Is there a curfew?

Will I need a tent for the ceremony?

If it rains is there a backup option?

What time will we be able to set up?

Who will be setting up the tables?

Where is the ceremony site? Are there options to choose from?

Will there be another wedding going on the same night outside?
