Booked that appointment with the venue manager? Here are the questions to ask when visiting a wedding venue:

Venue Availability 

  • Is this wedding venue available on the wedding date we have finalized?
  • If not, is the venue available on any other Saaya dates as per the wedding calendar for the same month? (Couples who don’t want a Saaya date specifically can check venue’s availability on weekends or other holiday dates for their wedding.)
  • How many hours are included in the rental amount?
  • How far in advance can we book and reserve this venue?

If the venue is available on your preferred dates, it’s time to dive deeper into this questionnaire -

Venue Capacity  

  • How many guests can this venue accommodate?
  • In the case of an intimate wedding, do you rent out this space for a smaller guest size?
  • What kind of spaces does this venue offer for pre-wedding or post-wedding functions?
  • In case of a bigger venue, how many weddings are you hosting in the venue on my shortlisted wedding date?
  • Do you offer rooms for guest accommodation? If yes, could you share the per-room tariff? If not, is there any accommodation available nearby?
  • In case of a destination wedding, can we pre-book the common areas for smaller functions?
  • Do you allow the bride-groom family to bring pets to the venue? If yes, are the pets allowed to stay in the rooms?
