» Pro Forum Buzz: Venue Considerations, Budget Expectations and More

The WeddingWire Pro Forums are a great place to meet and connect with other Wedding Pros across the country to grow your network. Every day, Pros are talking about a variety of topics, from client concerns to professional advice and best practices.

Here’s what Pros are talking about this month in the Pro Forums!

Opening a new wedding venue

Pros weigh in on the research and considerations for opening a venue, from the amount of space and equipment required for outside caterers to zoning and insurance requirements.

Share your knowledge of venues >

Offering review incentives

Should you offer an incentive for submitting a review, or could that be considered a bribe? Wedding and event professionals discuss whether or not a review incentive compromises the integrity of a review, whether good or bad.

Offer your voice >

Obtaining insurance for Officiants

Pros question whether or not they should have professional liability insurance. Some venues require all vendors to have insurance, but should Officiants be considered clergy or vendors?

Do you have insurance? Join in >

Managing budget expectations

Have you ever turned down a client because of a budget? Pros across all categories talk about dealing with couples with lower budgets and how to best accommodate them (or not accommodate them).
