All the In’s and Out’s

Before you get your heart set on a certain venue, make sure you’re asking all the right questions. Firstly, you’ll want to ensure that the venue is licensed for wedding ceremonies. Once you know that, ask about how many people the venue can accommodate and if there is any outdoor space available. It’s also nice to know whether the venue is hosting other events on the day of your wedding and if they offer on-site catering and supplies. What is the down payment? And do they offer payment options? In case of any unforeseen circumstances, it’s always best to ask about their cancellation policies. When you feel like you have all the information you need to book the venue, it’s time to begin building your wedding website. This site lets all your guests know about the important details of your wedding, from registry information to hotel accommodations. Next, figure out what kind of services you need. DJs? Wedding planners? Florists? Allow us to help. Take advantage of our wedding vendor manager to help keep everything in order.
