  • Visit the venue in person before you book it. This will give you a chance to see the venue for yourself and make sure it’s what you’re looking for.
  • Talk to other couples who have gotten married at the venue. They can give you their honest opinion of the venue and help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.
  • Get everything in writing. Make sure you have a contract that outlines all of the details of your wedding, including the price, date, and time.

With a little planning, you can find the perfect garden wedding venue for your special day.
