As wedding comes once in a lifetime it is very important to make sure that everything has been organized well in advance. When you have a plethora of options for venues it might be possible that you get confused as to which venue is best to choose for your most special day of your life. We all know that finding a venue can be a very tedious task and that too aa t reasonable budget. Since, wedding is a very important phase of life & you want everything to happen perfectly here, are the 10 questions to ask your venue or your wedding banquet manager before finalizing your banquet or marriage hall, which are as follows:


Price per plate:  

The first thing you should consider before booking your banquet hall is the food and cuisines they offer. When it comes to food items this is the most important question to ask your venue and the price per plate they offer. As this might vary from venue to venue so, ensure that how much do they cost and in case if your guests increase so how much do they charge extra per person. In addition, ask the manager about the food tasting session to get an idea of the cuisines!


Wedding Space:

Afterall, all your wedding ceremonies and rituals will take place here. Be it a spacious wedding banquet hall or an outdoor lawn while do a visit to the venue make sure to glance all the wedding space so that you get a better idea of the venue!

Power backup 

Well, you don’t want a blackout when your sangeet performance is going on, right? That is why it is handy to have a generator to take the heavy load that comes with the extra price tag, so keep that in consideration for sure. In case of rain, then do they have an indoor venue or not?


DJ timings

It is obvious that when it is a wedding you will surely have some music and DJ on the floor. However, ensure to take a DJ or music license and know the maximum duration allowed to play the songs.



In case if you’re planning a destination wedding, then this is for you! Make sure that your pre-book the rooms well in advance so that when you arrive at your wedding venue there shouldn’t be any problem of the accommodation at the venue.

Be it accommodation, 24×7 services or senior citizen facilities ensure that you look for these facilities and services they offer to their guests and clients.


In-house services

You might not be aware of it but there are many banquet halls, hotels or venues that offer in-house services like décor, catering, etc. to their clients. Ask your banquet manager about the in-house services they offer at their venue so that you don’t have to pay any extra charges or organize external wedding vendors for your wedding day.


Different Cuisines

If you’re having a different culture wedding in a different state, then chances are high of not getting a particular cuisine! Though most of the wedding venues offer Jain cuisines there can be some which might not offer. In, case if you want to have a South Indian cuisine or any other on your wedding day then, ask your banquet manager well in advance about the same.


Liquor License


Alcohol or liquor license and corkage fees are something you should make sure to ask the venue. There are many venues, which give you the permit to bring your liquor while others may suggest you to get your own license for your wedding celebrations. So, discuss these all beforehand.


Cancellation policy

And, lastly ask the banquet manager – what is the deposit required and what’s the cancellation policy? Just in case something happens, it’s better to know the cancellation policy beforehand. In addition, very important to find out the deposit, whether it is refundable and how the rest of the payment has to be made- all at once or in installments. Enquire about the mode of payment you are comfortable with as well.
