Where to start with narrowing down your venue choices

Posted: 3 February 2023

There are some key things to consider when looking at any venue. We have formulated a list of some of the most important general considerations: 

#1. What is your budget for:

    • Venue Hire 
    • Catering 
    • Bar

#2. What are the payment terms of the venue? 

#3. What numbers can the venue hold? 


#4. Does the venue have accommodation on site? 

#5. If not, is there accommodation nearby? 

#6. What are the transport links like nearby? 

#7. Does the venue have an approved supplier policy? 

#8. Does the venue have catering in house? 

#9. If not, are their catering suppliers on the approved list or do you find your own? 

#10. Have they got your date available? 

#11. How long would they hold a pencilled in booking? 

#12. What is their cancellation policy?

If you apply these questions to your search, shortlisting and dismissing most of the venues in your area will become a piece of (wedding) cake.
