4 Questions to Ask a Winery When Planning Your Wedding, Sugar Creek, Illinois

The picturesque surroundings of a winery make it the perfect location for a wedding. Before booking your venue, there are a few facts you’ll need to know. Have a list of questions ready when you call, so you get the right information. This will help you decide if the location is ideal for your big day. Here are some examples of questions to ask when planning your wedding.

What to Know Before Booking a Winery for Your Wedding

1. What Is Provided by the Venue?

Make a list of everything you’d like to include in the ceremony and reception, then find out if the winery provides it. If they offer food and beverages, ask them to send you a sample menu with prices. Inquire about their rain plan in case of inclement weather. If they do not offer tables, chairs, and decor, find out what outside vendors they work with.

2. Will You Be the Only Wedding Happening on That Day?

WineryOften, a wedding venue will book multiple events on the same day. This usually isn’t a problem, since each is planned for efficiency, but it is something you’ll want to be aware of, as it may help determine your timeline. If the winery has not booked another party, you may request that they notify you when they do.

3. Are There Any Noise Restrictions?

If a winery is in a residential area, there will sometimes be noise restrictions. This may affect your decision about what time to end your event, as you may not want to have it last too long after the entertainment has stopped.

4. Is There Adequate Parking & Transportation?

Transporting your guests to and from the winery is an important aspect of planning your wedding. Make sure the wedding venue has adequate parking if people will be driving their own cars. Inquire about partnering with a group transportation service to shuttle people to and from a local hotel.
