Here is some professional advice on Venue Selection... enjoy!
"Chances are if you are getting married than you have been planning your wedding since you were a little girl. This means you have pretty good idea on how you want your day to be.

You have thought of everything from the dress, to the shoes, to the hair, down to where you want the very last flower to go. But at the end of the day your venue is where all of this will take place.

That brings me to my point. Picking your venue is probably every brides first priority and then everything else falls into place. Every venue has its pros and cons and each individual bride needs to figure what they want most out of their venue. These are some questions to consider:
1.) Does the venue provide all the food and beverage or will you need to outsource a caterer?
2.) Does the venue have a pastry chef on property to make your wedding cake?
3.) Does the venue provide tables, chairs, dance floor, linens?
4.) Are there sleeping room accommodations on premise or lodging in the surrounding area?
5.) Is the catering team friendly and easy to work with? Do they make you feel comfortable? Are they knowledgeable?
6.) Are there any hidden fees or charges?
7.) Does the venue have a completely different space for a ceremony location?
8.) What is the cancellation policy?

Knowing what you are looking for and what to ask will ensure that your wedding day is a huge success for you and your guests."
