VENUES

It is one of the most important decisions that you will make when you are planning your wedding. So much happens at your wedding venue, it is home base for your entertainment, food, drink, special toasts and so much more. So, as you can see, this is such a huge decision. You want your guests to have a great time we understand that. But do yourself a huge favor when you start looking at venues in the Wichita area. Don't fall in love with a venue because of one or two features. For instance, if you walk in and you see these huge pillars that make it look like you just stepped into ancient Greece. Something like this may look very impressive, but there are so many factors that you will want to take into consideration. And if that venue lacks in some of the more important elements, you will wind up being very disappointed. And we don't want that to happen. Make sure that sure that you start your search with your wedding date, time, budget, and guest number in hand. Then start looking online for wedding venues in the Wichita area. When you pick out a few possible venues to check out, here are some questions that you want to be armed with when you do your site visit.

When you go for your site visits, you will be met by a representative of the venue. You will be given a tour and you will have a chance to ask your questions. The first thing on your mind should be to find out how many people the venue can accommodate. Talk to the representative about whether there is room also for the tables and chairs that will be needed. Of course you will also need room for your entertainment and for dancing. How many events will be held at the venue on the day of your wedding? You will want to take this answer very seriously. For instance, if your wedding is in the evening and there is another event earlier in the day, find out if your wedding vendors will be able to gain access early enough to get everything that needs to be done. Find out who will represent the venue on the day of your wedding. This is important because you will want to know who to contact to make sure that everything goes well and who to contact when something goes wrong.

The million dollar question is what will the venue cost you. And make sure that you understand what is included in the price. Does the price included items like tables and chairs and linens? Don't assume, find out what the bottom line is and what that means. Here is a tip: bring your own alcohol if the venue allow it. Even if they charge a corkage fee, you will save a lot of money. Do they have liability insurance? If they don't, move onto the next venue. Find out if there is a room where you and your bridal party can change.

Will your guests have to travel far to reach the venue? Are there ample parking spaces for the number of guests you are having? Is it handicapped accessible? How many hours can you have the venue for? Can you choose your own vendors or do you have to pick one from a list the venue provides? If you already have certain vendors booked this may not be a good thing. How much can you decorate the site? Is there a room for children in case they get tired and unruly? Ask them if they offer package levels. Take your time with these site visits and gather all of this pertinent information. Then when it comes time to compare, the choice should be obvious.
