Questions to Ask When Choosing a Wedding Venue

DC Wedding Venue Baltimore

If you’re planning your wedding and are looking for a D.C. wedding venue or reception venue, you probably have a number of questions to ask wedding coordinator or event planner. Continue reading for tips on valuable questions to ask when choosing your wedding venue.

Basic Preliminary Questions
The first things that you’ll want to find out from the event coordinator at your potential wedding venue is whether or not he or she will be on site during your wedding and reception. This is important, because you’ll want to make sure that someone will be there to answer questions and solve problems before, during, and after the event. You’ll also want to find out if the wedding venue and reception venue are available for exclusive use, or if there will be other wedding parties or large events occurring there on the day of your wedding.

Questions About the Ceremony and Wedding Reception
Find out how many rooms are available for use as wedding ceremony or wedding reception venues. You will want to know their capacity, how they’ll be set up, and what amenities the wedding venue provides, such as tables, chairs, tableware, sound systems, stages, etc. If you’re required to use their in-house caterer, you’ll want to review their menu options and set up a menu sampling. You’ll also want to find out if they provide alcohol, bartenders, and servers for the event.

Financial Questions
Ask the event coordinator or wedding coordinator what the deposit amount is to guarantee that you’ll have use of the venue for your wedding and reception. Find out what their cancellation policy and refund policy are, and if there is a payment schedule.

At Martin’s Caterers, we provide wedding venues and reception venues near Baltimore at each of our six convenient locations.

How to Choose a Caterer for Your Wedding

Caterer Baltimore

If you’re planning a wedding reception, using an event catering or wedding catering company to plan your menu can save you a lot of time and stress. Choosing the wedding catering company that is right for you can depend on a number of factors, including your personal food preferences, your guests’ dietary restrictions, and your budget. Keep reading for a few helpful tips on how to find the best event catering company for your wedding reception.

Make a Budget and Stick to It
Before you meet with wedding catering companies, determine what your budget is. The cost of food depends upon how many guests you’ll have, and how complicated the menu is. Most catering services offer a variety of menu choices for different budgets, and you can choose between options such as buffets, plated meals, cocktails, and desserts.

Get Recommendations for Catering Companies
The event coordinator at your wedding venue or wedding reception venue can offer you some recommendations for reputable and talented event catering and wedding catering companies in your area. This information is valuable, as event coordinators and event planners have years of experience working with different catering services, and can often offer more insight than those who don’t work in the event industry.

Ask the Right Questions and Get Menu Samples
Before meeting with potential caterers, create a list of questions. You’ll want to know what menu choices they offer that fit within your budget, whether they provide servers and bartenders, and if they can accommodate the dietary needs of guests who are vegetarian, vegan, or who have food allergies. You’ll also want to find out how much of a deposit you’ll need to put down and what their cancellation policy is.

Planning a Quinceañera

Quinceañera washington dc - martin's caterersThe quinceañera ceremony and party are very special and memorable events in the life of a young girl. Because the event is traditionally a very important cultural milestone, there are a lot of important details to consider when planning. You’ll need to find a large event venue and event catering company for your quinceañera near Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

A church mass is typically held as part of the quinceañera celebration, followed by dinner and dancing. You’ll want to make sure that your large event venue offers a catering service, and has a ballroom that can accommodate dinner and dancing. Typically, the guest of honor chooses 14 boys and 14 girls to be a part of her court of honor. After the first dance, which is a waltz danced by the birthday girl and her father, the quinceañera court is presented. After this presentation, toasts are made and a cake is served.

At Martin’s Caterers, we have talented and experienced event planners, and a large event venue that is perfect for a quinceañera near Washington, D.C. We also offer an award-winning catering service for any events hosted at our venues. For more information, visit our website or call us today at (410) 944-9433.
