More Tips

  • If you really love the site, ask the venue coordinator to put together a proposal/estimate with all the itemized pricing —including the tax and service charge—so you have an idea of the basic cost.
  • Bring a digital or video camera with you when you visit locations. You can mention each location and its event spaces as you video a site; if you’re using a digital camera you’ll need to organize the photos by location name when you get home. After seeing a series of places it’s easy to confuse them. Having a photographic record will help you remember what was special about each site.
  • Pay attention to the venue as a whole: Check out everything, including the restrooms, the foyer, the dressing rooms, the outdoor lighting and even the kitchen. You want to be sure your vision can be realized at this location.
  • GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING. Your date is not officially reserved until you sign a contract and give a deposit. Once you’ve found THE PLACE, make sure you ask what is required to get your booking locked-in and then follow through on satisfying those requirements. And don’t assume that just because the site coordinator said you can have 3 votive candles per table you’ll get them. Before you sign a contract, read the fine print and make sure it includes everything you and the coordinator agreed on. As new things are added or changed in your contract, have the updated version printed out and signed by you and the site representative. Also, document all your conversations in emails and keep your correspondence.
