5 Things to Ask at a Wedding Open Day

Wedding open days are the perfect place to ask those all-important questions that have been nagging you from the moment you became betrothed.

Ahead of the forthcoming  Wedding Open Day at Lords of the Manor, one of the finest wedding venues in the Cotswolds, our wonderful weddings team have created this essential list of questions to bring along with you.


Don’t be afraid to ask money related questions, it will help you to avoid any nasty surprises when it comes to settling the bill. Make a list of things to find out such as the price per person, if service is included and if corkage is an option.


This might seem obvious, but it is one of the most important factors when choosing a venue. Will it cater to the number of guests you wish to invite? Will all of your guests be able to stay at the venue?


Finding out how much support the wedding coordinator and wedding team will provide is key to understanding exactly how much input you will be expected to contribute with organising your big day. Hands-on brides may not want a huge amount of assistance,  however many will want the General Manager to be present on the day of the wedding.

Food & Decor

Creative brides should check they are allowed to add their own creative touches to the venue as many will only allow chosen suppliers to decorate the space. From canapes and wedding breakfasts to evening buffets, it’s important to ask the venue about what food and drink options they have available and if it’s possible to offer your guests a choice – as well as arrangements for vegetarians and vegans. As one of the finest Michelin restaurants in the Cotswolds, Lords of the Manor offers an outstanding choice of wedding menus for your big day.

Local Suppliers

High quality suppliers are key to a successful wedding. If you aren’t familiar with the local suppliers, a wedding open day is the perfect opportunity to sample what is on offer in the area. It’s your chance to discuss options with photographers, florists, makeup artists, musicians, wedding cakes suppliers and so much more.

Our stunning Cotswold hotel will be opening its doors on Sunday 29th October between 1pm and 4pm. Confirm your free attendance at our Wedding Open Day by completing the form here.
