Small Wedding Venues – Your Event Checklist

Some people think that just because they are holding their wedding in a small venue they don’t have to do much planning. The truth is, you should plan your wedding well regardless of the size of your wedding venue. In fact, you might even have more questions to ask if you will choose to get married in a small wedding venue rather than a big one. The key to making sure everything is planned and not forgotten? A good old-fashioned checklist! We’ve put together a sample checklist that you can use to help organise the finer details of your small wedding.

Can the venue accommodate all your guests?

It’s understandable that you want an intimate wedding. But you should also make sure that all of your guests will fit comfortably inside the venue. This is why it is important to visit the venue so you can see it for yourself before the big day.

How many hours can you spend on the venue?

Sometimes venues schedule multiple events in a single day. So you need to make sure that your wedding will finish at the allotted time in order to avoid a potentially awkward scenario.

Does the venue have a corkage fee?

If food and drinks are included in the venue you should check if it has a corkage fee before you plan on bringing your own food and beverage. Otherwise, you might end up paying extra.

Who will do the styling?

You should check if the package includes the decoration of the venue or if you have to do the decorations yourself. You won’t want to come to a bare venue come wedding day.

Is there enough space for dancing?

A wedding will not be complete without dancing during the reception. This is why you need to make sure that there would space where you and your guests can still dance without comfortably.

These are just some of the questions that you can include in your checklist for that perfect small wedding, find out what suits you and make your own!
