Top questions to ask when viewing a wedding venue

With a strange few months behind us, your wedding planning mission can finally get back on track. Here at Mere Court, we specialise in providing the perfect venue for the perfect day. Getting married in our fabulous, award winning wedding venue guarantees plenty of love, laughter and celebration, so you can create the most treasured memories.

We understand that choosing the venue where you’ll say “I do” to the one you love is difficult. That’s why we recommend viewing a selection of shortlisted wedding venues before making that all-important decision. At the viewing you’ll have the opportunity to not only see the venue in all its glory, but to ask as many questions as you like.

Here we reveal the top questions you should ask when viewing a wedding venue so you have all the information you need to choose the perfect venue for you with complete confidence and clarity.

How many guests can you accommodate?

This is something of a deal breaker so be sure to ask this essential question at the early stages of viewing or even before you venture there in person. You need to make sure that the venue you choose will comfortably accommodate your family members and friends. Before you head off to your viewing, devise a rough guest list for your ceremony and reception.

What does the cost of the venue include?

Every wedding is one of a kind, but to make life easier for you, a number of venues provide wedding packages to make your special day extra special.

Our wedding packages are a great fit for weddings with 10 to 200 guests. Packages include almost everything you need to curate the perfect wedding day, from an indoor or outdoor ceremony and red carpet arrival to personalised table menus and a complimentary bedroom for the bride and groom to spend their first night together as husband and wife.

Is the venue available for exclusive use?

Exclusive use is a biggie for many couples, after all who wants to share their wedding day with another couple. Be sure to ask whether the hire cost includes exclusive use to ensure that your big day is entirely your own.

What support will I receive?

Planning a wedding is hard work but you don’t have to do it alone when you book Mere Court for your wedding day. Whatever your guest numbers, you’ll be supported by your very own personal wedding coordinator. Our wedding coordinator will be your point of contact in the run up to your wedding date as well as on the day itself.
