When you’re looking for a wedding venue, the whole process can be pretty overwhelming. This is one of the biggest decisions you’re going to have to make, and your venue will appear in all your pictures. These photos will be the main lasting memories from your big day, so even if the food tastes rubbish but looks great, no one will remember after a few drinks. |
It’s important when looking for wedding barns in Suffolk that you ask any potential options all the right questions. As you’re not likely to have planned a wedding in the past, and in all likelihood you may never have planned an event of any scale at all, it makes it a lot easier if you can take some advice on the sorts of things you should be asking. Once you get used to this practise with your wedding barn in Suffolk you’ll then be in a position to look at hiring caterers, musicians and more.
There are a few questions which you can ask yourself on visiting or researching any given venue, which will save you unnecessary time wasted on places which could have easily been struck off the list.
Does the venue suit the style of your wedding
Is there room for all your guests (this will usually be listed clearly on websites and brochures, and may vary depending whether you’re having a sit down dinner or a buffet affair)
Once you’ve made a short list of suitable wedding barns in Suffolk you can begin visiting and seeing if visually the space is as you imagined. Have a look both inside and out, as you’re likely to want some photos and perhaps some of the festivities to take place in the great outdoors.
Do they have tables, chairs, and table dressings available for use, or will you need to hire this on top of the quoted price?
Do they have in-house catering or will you need to hire your own service? If they do have an in-house service, is it still possible for you to bring in your own caterers if that’s your preferred option?
Is there access to a kitchen with power and running water?
Can they accommodate whichever type of meal you’re having for the number of guests you want to attend?
How flexible are the meal choices – do they have a suggested menu?
If there a cake stand and knife provided?
What are the options with the bar? How late can it stay open?
How will staff be dressed?
Once you’ve settled on your perfect wedding barn in Suffolk, everything will begin to fall into place.
