YOUR INITIAL WEDDING VENUE MEETING – WHAT TO ASK

Choosing your wedding venue is probably the most important part of the wedding planning process, but it doesn’t just stop at how the venue looks. Once you’ve met the manager & had a look around, you’ll be wanting to sit down & discuss the details of your wedding day & how the venue will create your magical day. But what should you ask?

​Below are just a few questions that we get asked over & over at Flaxbourne Gardens, so I thought I’d share them with you & hopefully you’ll find them useful for your own venue meeting. If you can think of anything that I have missed, please do let me know! Send me an email on hello@beckiemelvinweddings.co.uk
