Wedding Venue Tours 101

Let’s face it, planning a wedding can be overwhelming. But fear not lovebirds! Whether you’re a Type-A personality who has color-coded spreadsheets for every aspect of the big day or you’re just winging it (hey, it happens), our team at Cypress Grove Estate House & Luxmore Grande Estate has got your back. We know that choosing the perfect venue is a big decision, which is why we’ve compiled four tips for making the most out of your venue tour with us. So grab your fiancé and let’s make some memories!

When you’re ready to take the next step in your venue search, it’s time to go on a tour! Before heading out, make sure to discuss details and budget with your partner so you can decide which style and price range of venues fit your needs.

1. Discuss Details & Budget!

Let’s talk about details and budget, shall we? Sit down with your fiancé and family to discuss all the juicy details and the wedding budget. Remember, the venue is the first big decision you’ll make, so it’s important to know your style and, more importantly, your price range. Before you go venue touring, there are two crucial details you must have on lock – your wedding date and budget! Keep in mind your guest list (size does matter!) and don’t forget to ask about a Plan B in case Mother Nature decides to throw a tantrum. This is Florida after all, folks!

Pro tip: don’t be afraid to mix it up with your venue style. You never know what kind of beauty may catch you off guard!

2. Schedule an appointment for your site visit!

Don’t be a rebel without a cause, schedule an appointment for your site visit! Each venue is a master of their own schedule and handling tour procedures. Guarantee your slot by scheduling an appointment, where you’ll have a knowledgeable venue staff to walk you through and discuss all details and packages. If you choose to wing it and walk-in without an appointment, you risk the chance of the venue being closed for another event, or no one being available to give you a tour.

Pro Tip – Don’t be shy, reach out to the venue staff beforehand and dig for deets or even ask for an estimate prior to the tour! With a little pre-tour probing, you can discuss your day more in-depth during the tour.

3. Get Smart about Your Wedding Venue

Ask Questions and Take Notes! Jot down a few essential questions and amenities you want in a venue before heading to your tour appointment.

Venues can vary greatly in their prices and packages, so it’s best to come prepared with a fresh checklist for each visit. That way, you can easily compare your options with notes and checklists post-tour. It’s the best way to ensure you get the information you need to make an informed wedding decision..

4. Have Fun

Don’t forget the most important part of wedding planning – FUN! Sure, it can get stressful, but keep your eyes on the prize and remember why you’re doing this in the first place. Skip the stress and focus on the big picture. And if you’re looking for a beautiful, stress-free day, don’t forget to book top-notch vendors and venues.


Happy hunting, and if you need a hand… Holla at us 💖
