5. Ask if the venue offers full-service arrangementsFull-service venues offer everything you need in-house, including furniture rentals, staff and special lighting. Bare-bones venues offer nothing other than the use of their space. Full-service venues, though, often have restrictions in place to do with the vendors you get to choose.
They tend to have approved caterers, florists, and so on. If you want the freedom to choose your own, a bare-bones facility makes sense.
