Top 5 Questions to Ask Before You Tour a Wedding Venue

One of the most stressful times of your life can be planning your wedding. But not to fear. The Wilds was born from the desire to alleviate as much stress from the couple as possible, and to create an atmosphere where you can relax and enjoy the day, knowing that everything’s taken care of. To help take some of the burden off of your shoulders, following are some questions to ask your wedding venue before you tour. We’ve also included answers to each of these important wedding venue questions as it relates to The Wilds.


1. What dates are available in the month and year I’m considering?

This is one of the most important wedding venue questions you can ask. Some venues will have been booked for months, and some of the most sought after ones will be unavailable for even longer. That’s why this is one of the first questions you’ll want to ask, so you can make sure your favorite place is ready for your big day. The Wilds typically books prime Saturdays 18-24 months advance, so it’s never to early to get your big day secured with us. For your convenience, you can find dates of availability right on our website by clicking here.

2. How many people can you accommodate?

Maybe you want your ceremony to consist of just your closest family and friends, making for an intimate celebration. Or perhaps you’re big party types, wanting to invite the whole city in to your wedding. Whatever your preference, you’ll have to know how many people can fit comfortably in your venue of choice. From there, you’ll know just how much of, well, everything to plan for. The Wilds not only has accommodations for 200 guests, but the entire venue is handicap accessible as well, ensuring you’ll never have to leave anyone out.

3. What’s your weather contingency plan for bad weather?

This wedding venue question is important for all seasons, especially in Indiana. Spring could force your guests into raincoats, summer could produce record heat indexes, while fall and winter could bring on a severe chill. Thankfully, The Wilds has TWO contingency plans to make sure you’re covered (literally), regardless of what Mother Nature throws at you!⠀

  1. The Wilds show-stopping ceremony pavilion is dressed to impress with beautiful stone columns, soaring vaulted ceilings and wood beams, and custom fabricated benches. From under its hand-crafted pergola you can take in the sweeping views of the sunset over the surrounding forest as you exchange vows. With the ceremony pavilion as an option your chances of having an outdoor ceremony, rain or shine, have just skyrocketed! ⠀
  2. The Wilds also has an indoor plan that is equally as beautiful in case of extreme weather or temperatures. If inclement weather pushes your wedding inside, we have plenty of room to host your ceremony and reception indoors in the comfort of our heating and air conditioning. With a double-sided indoor/outdoor stone fireplace, glass french doors and floor to ceiling windows on every wall, you’ll have beautiful back drop and stunning views of the Hills of Brown County, even if you are indoors. If the weather is unpredictable, you’re still in control.

4. Can I move things around and decorate to suit my vision, or do I have to leave everything as is? 

When you’re planning your decorations, make sure to keep your venue in mind so the two styles don’t clash. You could plan the most beautiful wedding imaginable, and when you set everything up on the big day, you realize that the two decor designs are waging war with each other. Avoid the battle, and know up front how much decorating is available to your choosing.

At The Wilds, we understand how important it is to create an atmosphere that perfectly captures your unique style and personality. We invite you to decorate and make The Wilds your own, or you can leave the decorating to us. If you’re looking for luxury table design without the luxury price tag, or you’re aiming for a turn-key approach to lessen your planning load, we offer several designer decor rentals , accent furniture and statement pieces free of charge. Best of all, all of The Wilds rentals include setup and teardown so we can flawlessly execute your vision while you kick back, relax and enjoy your big day with loved ones! From petite details to grand statement pieces, our team is here to help you set the scene for your wedding day.

5. How much is the deposit, when is it due, and is it refundable? Is there a payment plan available?

One of the best things you can do before diving into planning is set a budget for your wedding, and stick to it. Asking your venue questions about how much they’re going to charge you, and what their deposit and payment plans are, will help you stay right on budget and free from any surprises. On The Wilds Details Page, you’ll find transparent pricing information. We’re always up front with our cost, never hiding anything extra in the fine print. We’re all about you resting easy and keeping the focus on your experience.
