Before booking any venue, including our Fort Worth wedding venue, you want to make sure to go on a tour and ask any and all questions that you might have. Seriously, don’t be afraid to ask too many! We want you to know as much as possible because we know how big of a commitment booking a wedding venue is. We at Chandon Arbors want to help you in knowing what questions are so important that you don’t want to leave off of your checklist! Keep reading to see what you should always ask before you book your venue.
How Many Guests Does the Venue Allow?
This is an important question because you don’t want to fall in love with a venue only to learn that only half the number of guests you have would be able to fit. At Chandon Arbors, depending on which room you choose, we have a max capacity of up to 300 people! Our space is perfect for a medium to a large wedding.
Is The Venue Available On My Target Date?
Asking right away if the venue is available on your target date is so important! You can even ask this before you tour so that you don’t waste your time on a venue that doesn’t have any openings around when you want it to.
Can I Use My Own Caterer?
If you have a caterer in mind that you have been dreaming of using, be sure to ask this question! The catering situation changes venue to venue. Some venues only let you use in-house catering, others only let you use caterers on their list, and then the rest allow whoever you’d like! This is an important question since you will be looking for a caterer around the same time as you are looking for a venue.
What Other Rooms Are Available (Bride’s Room, Room For Groomsmen). Is There Any Additional Fee?
Ask about rooms to get ready in! Some venues don’t have a dedicated bride and groom suite, and if they do they might have an additional fee. Being able to get ready on-site is a massive pro to any venue which is why we have phenomenal spaces, at no additional charge, for everyone to get ready in. Within the Bridal Suite, we have a 14-foot vanity, a full three-way mirror, and spa-style chairs! Our packages come with a room attendant, an en-suite bar package, and vendor access. We didn’t forget about the guys, either! For the Groom Suite, we have a spacious room with two flat-screen TVs, two minibars, and lots of comfy seating.
Does The Venue Have a List Of Vendors They Can Recommend?
Let’s be honest, finding all of the vendors for your wedding is tough, especially when one of the best ways to find the best of the best is by word of mouth. Ask your potential venue if they have any vendors that they can recommend for your big day! Most venues have a preferred vendor list or even just a list of their favorites. If you’re looking to book with us, we do have a list and we would love to share it with you in order for your big day to be perfect.
We would love to talk with you more about any of these questions regarding our Fort Worth wedding venue, and any others that you may have! If you would like to tour, contact us and we can get that set up for you today! We hope to see you on your big day at Chandon Arbors and wish you the best of luck in your search for the perfect venue for you.
