Hello my preciousness. Today’s post is a continuation of a post I wrote a few weeks ago on dry hire wedding venues. You can find that post here
Are you considering hiring a dry hire venue? Many of you believe hiring a dry hire venue is a way of saving money to some extend I agree but there are other hidden extra chargers that you may not be aware of. And in some cases normal hire venue work out to be much cheaper than dry hire venues. I know for those of you who have special menu requirements, you only trust your preferred caters but traditional venues are catching on, providing and working with amazing caterers that are just as good. Here are Things To Remember When Hiring A Dry Hire/Blank Canvas Wedding Venues
Cleaning Equipment: Yes after you say your i do’s and guests have come and gone the venue owners will expect to find it clean and tiny like when they hired it out to you. Some venues might even penalize you and keep some of your deposit if the venue is not cleaned.To save yourself heart ache hire a cleaning company or ask one your loved ones for help.
Bins: Not glamorous I know but bins are useful especially if you are thinking of erecting a marquee somewhere. You could put them outside where they are easily accessible.You really don’t want to be picking up litter when your suppose to be off on your honeymoon. I remember watching an episode of bridezillas where the bride was picking litter after her wedding. (I felt so sorry for her) No bride should go through that.
Security: Security? yes you read right. Some venues will require you to have security of their choice at a cost to you. They can charge anywhere from 17-26ph per security guard per 70 guests.
Caterers Marquee:If you plan on erecting a marquee in a field somewhere remember you will have to hire an extra tent for the caterers, consider yourself blessed if they brings their own tent.
Toilets: Unless you’re hiring a stately home(fat chance of it being a dry hire)lol or town hall, you need to think about hiring toilets. Not glamorous I know but one cannot have a big event like a wedding and not have loo(s).
Table and Chairs: A blank Canvas Venue/ dry hire means you will have to provide everything so don’t just assume chairs and tables will be included in the dry hire quote, some venues will charge you extra for them. Read the small print of the contract.
