What should I consider when choosing a garden as a wedding venue?
When choosing a wedding venue, consider the season, the weather, the size of the garden, whether restrooms and catering are possible and what the backup plan is in case of bad weather.
Can you bring your own wedding decorations?
A number of wedding venues where you can get married in a garden have indicated that not everything is possible in terms of decoration. The reason is because sometimes the garden can be very beautiful by itself and additional decoration may not fit the owner’s vision. So consult what is possible.
Can you stay overnight or have a party at the wedding venue?
Whether the wedding venue has hotel rooms available you can always check with the owner. Sometimes wedding venues make set arrangements with hotels in the area. In addition, it is not possible to throw a party at every garden location, for example, because the location is private property or because it is in the middle of a nature reserve.
