4 important questions to ask a potential wedding reception venue

Selecting a Sydney wedding venue can be a stressful decision. Does the venue reflect the mood and ambiance you hope for? Can you afford it? Will the service be flawless? Will the staff help you to make your day perfect? Are the amenities clean and fresh? The list goes on – and on! These are all important questions to ask when reviewing a wedding reception venue in Sydney.

A venue that doesn’t tick all the boxes will only lead to disappointment, and let’s be honest – ain’t nobody got time for that on their wedding day!

To ensure your wedding day is just what you hoped for, here’s five important questions to ask any wedding venue (and yourself) before you sign on the dotted line!

Is this a Sydney wedding venue that will work hard to ensure our satisfaction and happiness?

Many wedding venues are ‘wedding factories’ that’s what you can expect from chains or groups. Three, four or five brides every weekend means you’re just ‘another number’. A stand-alone venue will work harder for your business. They are dedicated to meeting all your needs and going the extra mile to guarantee your satisfaction. They’ll answer your calls, solve your problems and assist you in your every need to make your wedding day exactly what you want it to be.

Is this a Sydney wedding venue that’s fresh, clean and stylish?

It’s the small things that can make big impressions. That’s why every inch of the ideal wedding reception venue should be fresh, modern and in excellent condition. Nothing is more memorable for all the wrong reasons than dirty, old bathrooms or shabby venue furnishings. The perfect venue should offer a beautifully appointed bridal retreat, impeccable linens and the venue’s immaculate ‘blank canvas’ should be your starting point for styling that reflects your personality as a couple.

Does this Sydney wedding venue offer good value packages? Can I afford this Sydney wedding venue?


When choosing your ideal wedding venue it’s important to ensure that you understand their costs and how your reception will be priced. All-inclusive packages are transparent and assist in making your wedding budget more manageable. Nobody wants to be unpleasantly surprised with unexpected costs when the big day is over!

As well as transparent pricing it’s equally important to ask yourself is your Sydney wedding reception venue value for money? Ensure you compare apples with apples and that your selected wedding package meets your dreams – and your budget!

Is this Sydney wedding reception venue able to offer me everything I need?

Planning a wedding is a big job. Choosing a Sydney wedding reception venue who are keen to meet your needs – and help you achieve your wedding ‘vision’ is very important! In house stylists, who will work with you to develop a concept, share their expertise and their network of suppliers (should you need them) can lighten the load of wedding planning!

Further, if you have cultural requirements as part of your celebrations it’s helpful to choose a venue that not only understands your heritage, tradition or beliefs but also can help you to meet these needs.

It’s also valuable to explore the service mantra of a potential wedding venue. Ask yourself are they committed to five star service? Any venue that can’t guarantee you the highest level of customer service before, during and after your wedding reception is not the best venue for you!

We wish you an enjoyable wedding planning experience!
