Couples often find it stressful when the time comes to choose the ideal wedding venue. That’s why Rosehill is at your side to make the entire process simple and efficient. Here are 5 tips to booking the perfect Toronto wedding venue:

1. Communicate With Each Other 

Often times, the hectic work schedules between couples decreases the time for wedding planning. The groom-to-be may want the theme to be centered on sports, while the bride-to-be may want the theme to be centered on romance. This is why communication is so important when setting the tone for the planning stages to follow. It’s when multiple vendors, experienced event planners, caterers and the venue owner will come into the fold to add their expertise and collaborate with your vision.

Tip: Come to a decision on what you both want before scheduling vendor meetings.

2. Create A Venue Checklist

The décor is an important part of any wedding. Establish a venue checklist that will allow you to categorize everything that is required with what is desired.

Tip: Breakdown the theme of your wedding by creating categories.

For example: 

Guests vs. Venue Size

  • How many people should we invite?
  • Does the venue suit the atmosphere that we want?
  • Is the venue flexible with their space?

Décor

  • Does the décor match the theme of our wedding?
  • How much of our budget are we putting into the décor?
  • Does the décor suit the venue that we are booking?

Catering

  • Is the caterer established and highly regarded in the industry?
  • What do people say about the caterer on Google Reviews?
  • How much do they charge for a sit-down dinner compared to a buffet?

3. Schedule Multiple Meetings With The Venue Owner

Meeting with the owner of the venue allows you to keep the details of the Toronto wedding venue top-of-mind. Rosehill’s Owner, Tony Papanastos states: “After our first meeting, I use my own personal checklist by asking: Does the space work for you and do the numbers work for you? If so, do you trust me to make your entire event work for you? Each of these questions go hand in-hand with each other in creating transparency and trust for a strong working relationship.”

Tip: Make sure the owner is just as thrilled at helping you plan your special day as you are.

 4. Vendors

The vendors with whom the venue is associated with will give you a good idea about their reputation. How long have their event rental companies been in business for? Do they know reputable photographers in the industry? What stands-out to the owner when it comes to their preferred caterer? How long has the caterer been in business for and do they have experience catering different types of weddings?

Tip: Ask the right questions to receive valuable answers throughout the wedding planning stages.

5. Venue Space Vs. Guest Ratio

Some venues will stretch out the space so that all of your guests can be accommodated. However, their website should have a floor plan, with the number of guests that can be accommodated for both seated and standing style events. If not, they may be trying to squeeze more business for themselves by trying to fit more people than the venue can handle.

Tip: Honesty is key! Research the reputation of the venue online.
