Wedding planning is an exciting and magical affair, but it is also a lot of work! Before you can decide who to invite, what to eat and other important details, you first need to figure out where you are going to hold your wedding reception!
The Club at Indian Creek is one of the best wedding reception venues Omaha has, and they’ve come up with a list of questions you and your significant other should ask whenever you are touring a new place!
1. What comes included in the wedding package?
This is one of the first things you want to ask a potential venue because it can help you figure out if this location will help you stay on budget! You will want to see if the venue offers any chairs or tables for your guests to sit at or if you will have to go through a rental company which can be an additional charge. Some venues will even charge extra for a cake cutting service. While it can be easy to assume that some services would just be offered or included in the price, it’s always best to double check and ask.
2. Ask about all the basics
The basics include how many hours your rental covers, how many guests they can accommodate, the budget and of course what dates they have available. The answers to all of these questions can help you to narrow down your list from all the wedding reception venues Omaha offers, to just your favorites.
3. Are there any restrictions in place?
Asking about any restrictions will help you when you are planning other details. If they have alcohol restrictions and can only serve beer and wine and you want a full bar, then it is easy to check that particular venue off your list. These restrictions can also include mandated catering services, wedding decoration limits and more.
4. What is the plan if it rains?
If you are looking at all the outdoor wedding reception venues Omaha has, then it is very important to ask what the contingency plan is in case it rains. Some venues like The Club at Indian Creek may have an indoor space just as beautiful as the outdoor one that you can use and some may have a tent that they can quickly set up outside. Other venues may not have a plan at all! You always want to plan for rain on your wedding day, just in case, and it’s important to find a venue that will help you plan.
5. What is parking like?
This will be a very important question to ask, especially if you are planning a large and extravagant wedding! You will want to make sure that the venue has enough space for all your guests, or if they don't, that they have suitable alternatives. Some venues have easy access to public transportation or have deals with local hotels.
6. What is their refund policy?
In light of this past year and the pandemic, it’s more important than ever to know what your venue’s refund policy or cancellation process is like. While you can hope that you never have to use it, it’s still always best to get all the facts before making your final decision.
