1) QUESTIONS FOR THE WEDDING PLANNER:-


Take these questions with you when interviewing potential wedding planners.

What made you decide to be a wedding planner?

Are you a certified wedding planner?

How many full weddings have you planned?

How many budget weddings have you planned?

Do you have our wedding date available?

Have you ever planned a wedding at our venue?

Would you be present at all the vendor meetings?

Will you be the person on site on the day of our wedding?

What time will you arrive and depart on our wedding day?

What are the different packages you offer?  Prices?

How meetings/phone calls are included in our package?

Is the rehearsal included?

What is your cancellation policy?



2) QUESTIONS FOR YOUR CATERER

Here are some questions to take with when talking to prospective caterers:

Do you have my date available?

Have you done any events at my location?

What food choices can you recommend for my budget and guest list?

Can you accomodate dietary restrictions?

What is the price difference between a buffet and a sit-down meal?

Do you have a different menu and price for children?

How much do you charge for vendor meals?  Do they get served the same thing as our guests or is it a separate menu?

Do you do food tastings?  Is there an extra charge for this?

What types of linens, glassware, plates, silverware, etc do you provide?

What is your policy on clean-up?

Do you provide alcohol?

What is the ratio of servers to guests?

How will the servers be dressed?

What is your cancellation policy?



3) QUESTIONS FOR THE VENUE:-

Here are some questions you should ask prospective venues to help make your decision:


What dates are available during the time period I'm considering?

How many people can your location accomodate?

What is your fee and what does it include?  Do you offer discounts on certains of the week or times of the year?

How long do I get to use the space for?

How much is the deposit and is it refundable?

What's the cancellation policy?

If it's an outdoor space: What is your contingency plan in case of bad weather?

Am I able to get in the day before to decorate?

Do you have an in-house caterer or a list of preferred caterers?  Are we required to use them or can we bring in someone else?

If I hire my own caterer, is there kitchen space for them?

Can I bring in my own alcohol? (Errr...)

Are there any restrictions on music?  Is there a cut off time for music?

How many restrooms are there?
