What Is a Wedding Venue Walkthrough?

When it comes to weddings, there are two types of “walkthroughs.”

The first happens when you initially decide to tour — or “walk through” — a venue that you’re thinking of booking for your ceremony and/or reception.

The second happens closer to your wedding (usually 10 to 14 days before your wedding date). This “final” walkthrough is to confirm all venue-related details with your ceremony and/or reception venue. If you’ve booked a caterer, sometimes they’ll come too but typically, it’s just you, your partner, and a representative from the venue.

To help you navigate both types of walkthroughs, I’ve put together a list of questions to ask. You’ll find that list, and other free wedding planning resources, here.
