How early should we book our wedding venue?

Popular venues in Nelson and Tasman can book out 12-18 months in advance, especially for peak season dates (November to March). It's best to secure your venue as soon as you've set a date.

What should we consider when choosing a wedding venue?

Consider your guest count, desired style (e.g., rustic, modern, traditional), budget, and whether you want an all-in-one venue for the ceremony and reception. Also, consider accommodation options for out-of-town guests and wet-weather alternatives for outdoor spaces.

Do most wedding venues offer catering services?

Many venues have preferred caterers or in-house catering teams. Some allow external catering, although they may charge a fee. When enquiring, be sure to ask about catering options and any restrictions.

Are there any hidden costs we should be aware of when booking a venue?

Ask about additional costs such as corkage fees, cleaning fees, overtime charges, and hire fees for items like chairs, tables, and linens. Some venues may also charge extra for set-up and pack-down time.

Can we have our ceremony and reception at the same venue?

Many venues in Nelson and Tasman offer packages for both ceremony and reception, which can be convenient for guests and more cost-effective. Ask potential venues about their ceremony spaces and any associated costs.

What's the typical capacity of wedding venues in the region?

Venue capacities vary widely, from intimate spaces for 20 guests to larger venues accommodating 200+. When enquiring, be clear about your expected guest count to ensure the venue can comfortably accommodate your party.
