5 Questions to Ask During a Wedding Venue Visit (4)

Allison from Davis Row compiled this list of questions best asked in person, including a few you may not have thought of.

You can find tons of information about capacities, photos of ballrooms, and phone numbers for preferred florists all over venue websites, but there are so many more questions to ask. Schedule a visit (and make sure there’s space on your phone for video!) and bring these along.
