Question by braiiiiinz: What should I ask the hotel before booking my wedding reception?
I'm going to be going alone to talk to the hotel where I want to have my wedding reception because my fiance is always working. So I was wondering of any important questions i should ask?

Answer by corky
Have you rfiancee write down his questions. Ask if they charge by the hour, is there a bar, how late can we be here. Alot of questions will pop in your head as you're talking to them

    Is your reception at the hotel? Ask them what their max capacity is. Ask them about parking. Will it be valet or self park? How late can you have the reception. How many rooms can you book? Can you book a whole floor? Ask them for specials if you book so many rooms. Ask them about savings for multiple days. Most hotels will give you a discount if you are booking multiple rooms for guests.

    You will need to know menu items and what types of foods you can select and the prices PER PLATE they will charge…. Also, you will need to know if they make the wedding cake or YOU have to provide it… Also you should know an approximate number of quests you wish to invite because they will have to hold a room big enough ot hold your guests… I hope you aren’t getting married for at least a year because most places that do great wedding receptions are usually booked a YEAR or more in advance…. Also, you will have to decide down the road what your color scheme will be…. so you will have to ask if the hotel has a specific color for their napkins and table cloths… Also, you must ask them prices for an open bar and bar tender or, if you aren’t having an open bar, you must at least ask if the hotel supplies the bar tenders (included with the price they quote for using their hotel for the reception) or if you pay the bar tenders separately… Also, if you’ve picked your band or DJ, fine but if not, most reputable hotels that hold receptions will have a list of qualified bands or DJs that they can recommend… Prices will vary based on what you want the hotel to serve for the meal… Prime Rib will be way more expensive per plate then chicken for example… Oh and if you do not have a wedding photographer or videographer, the hotel event coordinator you speak to might even have a few he or she could recommend to you….
