For any fairytale wedding, choosing the perfect vendors is key to everything going off without a hitch. It's smart to shop around before deciding, and asking these 10 questions can help you narrow down the choices!
Questions For the Venue
Are there any nearby residences that could be bothered by the music?
After you say “I do,” it's time to get on the dance floor and jam out. But if the venue is surrounded by houses or in the middle of town, there is the possibility of noise complaints.
Are children allowed?
If a venue doesn't allow children and you are okay with it, notify your guests well in advance so they can make proper arrangements before traveling to the ceremony.
Is the venue handicap accessible?
This not only includes entrances to the venue but bathrooms as well.
Will transportation to the venue be available?
For guests in nearby hotels or those who have to park off-site, transportation to and from the venue can be extremely helpful.
Questions For the Florist
Will the flowers be delivered to the ceremony?
If not, ask if you will need to pick them up beforehand, or the day of.
Do we get to keep any accessories?
For any floral centerpieces with vases, crates, boxes, etc., the florist may request to have those pieces returned to reuse in future weddings.
Are off-season flowers available?
Maybe your wedding colors include flowers that aren't in season on your wedding day. Check if your florist has accessibility to them.
Questions For the Caterer
Do you provide linens and silverware?
You might ask your venue if this is an option also!
Is a bartender available, or will we need to hire one?
It might even save you money to ask a friend to mix drinks if the caterer charges an extra fee for this.
Where do the leftovers go?
Can guests take leftover food home? Can the leftovers be donated?
