5 Questions to Ask Your Wedding Ceremony Venue

You can visualize yourself walking down the aisle, locking eyes with your partner, saying ‘I Do’ and sharing that first kiss as a married couple. You’re ready to sign on the dotted line to book your wedding ceremony venue! But wait – have you asked all the right questions?!

Not to worry, Team JBW has got your back! Here are 5 important questions to ask when booking your wedding ceremony venue.

1. Are there any décor restrictions? For example, many indoor venues do not allow real flower petals down the aisle. Some churches have restrictions on what (if any) décor can be placed at the altar. It’s important to find out what is and isn’t permitted before booking your wedding ceremony venue.

2. What is included with the venue rental and what am I responsible for renting or supplying? Find out what the venue is providing and what you must bring in yourselves or rent. Some examples of items you may require for your wedding ceremony include: chairs or bench seating, a signing table for the registry, a ceremony arch or arbour, a sound system with a wireless or lapel microphone, and easels for directional signage.

3. When can a rehearsal date and time be confirmed? Some venues will allow you to schedule this upon booking, while others will only confirm your rehearsal a couple weeks in advance. This is important to ask, as it may take some juggling to coordinate the availability of your Officiant, Wedding Party, Wedding Coordinator and rehearsal dinner venue.

4. Is there an indoor or covered backup space in case of inclement weather? Always have a Plan B! If weather is poor, is there an on site backup space you can move the ceremony into? And when must you make the weather call? Often times this can be done on the day of the event, as late as a few hours prior to your ceremony start time, but some venues require 24 hours notice if utilizing the backup space.

5. Is only one wedding held per day? Some ceremony venues book multiple weddings on a single day (we’ve seen as many as 4 different timeslots), while others provide exclusivity to a single wedding couple. It’s important to understand if you are restricted to a specific ceremony time, and whether you have to hustle out of there following your nuptials or if you can stick around to take photos.

Edmonton Wedding Coordinator: Khadija + Dan

Aga Khan Gardens is one of the Edmonton area’s newest and most in-demand outdoor wedding ceremony venues. An open amphitheatre nestled within the forest, its mandate is to provide a peaceful gathering space to develop human connections.

It was such a pleasure to provide Wedding Day Management services for Khadija and Dan, who held their ceremony at the Aga Khan Gardens followed by an intimate celebration at Khazana Restaurant. See more of their wedding in Blush Magazine as part of the 2019 Venue of the Year feature.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Ashley + Sean

Ashley and Sean’s wedding was the perfect combination of tradition and classic elegance meets modern design. They shared a first look at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald where they took photos in the beautiful gardens before heading to St. Josaphat’s Cathedral for a traditional Ukrainian Catholic ceremony. The newlyweds hosted a modern reception at Art Gallery of Alberta, which we dressed up in black and white with touches of champagne and rose gold.

Edmonton Wedding Coordinator: Kristen + Craig

If there was ever a couple you’d picture together forever, Kristen + Craig are it. Together with family and friends they celebrated their special day last spring at Delta South’s Top of the Inn.

It’s such an honour to coordinate multiple weddings within the same family! Our team had the privilege of helping with each of Kristen’s siblings’ weddings, including Stephanie + Matt’s wedding last year.

Edmonton Wedding Coordinator: Stephanie + Matt

Stephanie + Matt blended a traditional church ceremony with a modern, all-white reception at Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel.

After hair and makeup at Carrie’l Salon & Spa, the ladies enjoyed bubbly and got dressed in the Onyx Suite at Matrix Hotel. Stephanie’s eight bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning in their mismatched white formal dresses. They joined up with the dapper groomsmen to take photos at Renaissance after the church service at St. Joseph’s Basilica.

The reception design was monochromatic and minimalist, with geometric centrepieces and lighting, and white florals including hydrangea and calla lilies. Amidst the all-white reception décor was a colourful rainbow candy table with Henri – Fabloomosity’s infamous boxwood elephant – overlooking the display.

Right before the final speech, Stephanie’s sister initiated a surprise flash mob that filled the dance floor with guests singing and dancing. This was the biggest and best one we’ve seen executed at a wedding! Stephanie’s jaw dropped and she was blown away by this surprise.

Jade Gabrielle did a wonderful job capturing this stylish day!
