What to Ask a Long Island Wedding Venue
Some venues, like churches, are obvious in what they do: host weddings and perform mass. But other venues, like reception halls in NYC, may be a bit more ambiguous because they tend to host whatever they’re paid for. When you visit, ask these questions:
If you’re still in the searching for the right Long Island banquet hall, you likely don’t have a firm guest list in place, only an idea of how many people you’re going to invite. And while you don’t yet need an exact figure, you’ll help your cause a lot more if you can estimate it as closely as possible. It’s not just because the venue wants to dictate your guest list, but because they have to abide by fire code regulations.
No wedding is complete without the reception meal, that point in the day when all of your guests can mingle and keep celebrating your wedding. And while you still have plenty of time to decide what exactly you’ll be serving, there are a few things you need to figure out beforehand when narrowing down your list of venues.
Once you’ve got these three major categories covered, it’s also a really good idea to ask about payment schedules, ancillary fees, nearby accommodations, weather contingency plans, and insurance costs. It may seem like a lot to take on, but venues that specialize in weddings already know what to expect and can help you sort everything out easily.
