Every time a bride visits our bridal boutique in Milton Keynes, the first question we ask before we even start the wedding dress design consultation is ‘where is your venue’.  It goes without saying that your wedding venue could potentially be the single most important part of your wedding planning process.  The wedding venue sets the tone and theme for the whole event even down to what you and your bridesmaids would wear or how many guests you would be able to invite.

Therefore, it is imperative that you choose your venue carefully as many a bride has found herself very dissatisfied with her entire weddingbecause she chose a venue that did not reflect her desires for her big day.
The following list of questions and tips will help you tremendously during your wedding venue search. We recommend that you print them out and use them as a guide while you’re talking with a wedding venue contact or reviewing a brochure. We also recommend that you think of a few questions that are more specific to your requirements and add them to this list. 

- What dates are available in the month I’m considering?
- How many people can this wedding venue accommodate?
- What is the rental fee and what is included in that price?
- How much is the deposit, when is it due, and is it refundable? Do you offer a payment plan?
- Are you licensed to conduct wedding ceremonies? How much will you charge for the wedding ceremony?
- Is there a bride’s changing area?
- What’s the cancellation policy?
- How long will I have use of the wedding venue space(s) I reserve? Is there an overtime fee if I stay longer? 
- Can I redecorate your venue to suit my purposes? Are there any guidelines/restrictions?
- Do you have an in-house wedding caterer and do I have to use your caterer or can I bring my own caterer?
- Do you provide tables, chairs, plates, silverware and glassware or will I have to get them myself
- How much do you charge for food per person and what is the service charge?
- Do you offer food tasting sessions and is it complimentary or do you charge extra for this
- Can I bring in my own wedding cake maker?
- Can I bring my own drinks and is there a limit on the quantity I am allowed to bring in?
- Are you licensed to provide alcohol? If so, what is the average bar tab for the number of people attending my event?
- Are there restrictions on what kind of music I can play, or a time by which the music must end? 
- Can the wedding venue accommodate a DJ or live band? Make sure there is enough room for your DJ or band to set up and for dancing.
- Do you provide any free or paid-for parking and if not, where do guests park?
- Are cabs easily accessible from the wedding venue?
- How many restrooms are there? There should be at least 10 rest rooms per 100 people.
- Do you offer complimentary or paid-for on-site wedding coordination? What services are included?
- Do you provide security?
- Do you have liability insurance?
- Do you provide overnight accommodations and if so, how much do you charge?
- If you do not provide accommodation, what are the nearest hotels to the venue?
- Do you have signage or other aids to direct guests to my event?
- Can I take pictures of the venue?  This is especially important for your décor planning and comparing one venue with others you have viewed.
