Choosing a wedding venue
Ready to pick up that phone to look for the desired wedding venue and start calling away? Wait! Here are some points you may want to take note. Sense their tone, are they desperate? Rude? Or simply cannot be bothered to serve you? First ask for the name and the position of the person you are speaking with, you will be surprise that they will be more polite and willing to serve you once their names has been disclosed. Ask the rates of peak and off-peak dates. Availability of the rooms and capacity and not forgetting the turn around time. Parking capacity? Do they provide complementary parking to your guests? In-house flowers? Any top-ups for certain kind of flowers that you desire on your wedding? Remember to take note of extras and hidden cost, like taxes, plus plus, as these may blow your wedding budget if you are not aware of them.

After you have done your research by phone and have short-listed some on your list, it is time to do some scouting with your fiance and please do not forget your in-laws-to-be.

Here are some tips when you go scouting or investigating your short-listed wedding venues. Bring a digital camera along, take pictures of the rooms that you visit but remember to ask for permission. If you are not allowed to take pictures, simply ask for brochures, I am sure they have them. Take note of the wedding venues you visited and write them down on your note book, by the time you are half way through your list, you would have forgotten what you like and dislike about certain places. Please do not get into too much detail on your visits as you may come back again after narrowing down to your final choices. This will also prevent you from annoying the banquet manager even though he is more than happy to show you around the place for 2 hours!

Be polite and behave yourself, do not put on a strong upfront and negotiate for the best deal, they are there to do a job; and trust me, they can remember their customers pretty well, and they are the ones taking care of your wedding.

I have come across wedding couples that put on an upfront demanding lots of freebies and perks but in the end they do not have the budget to back it up, it can be a real embarrassment on the wedding couple's side. So be nice. One more check point to go, do the wedding venue you chose have good spots to take photos? I am sure you need some wonderful backdrops to take some good wedding pictures to show your friends and family.

Looking for a wedding caterer can be quite a chore. If you have confirmed a wedding venue and started looking for a caterer, you may want to ask the wedding venue management which caterer they recommend and which they don't allow or prefer not to work with.
