Questions to ask your wedding venue regarding singing waiters 


Space and changing facilities

For many weddings, your chosen singing waiters team will need to get changed on arrival to the venue, so that they can look like believable members of the wait staff, keeping the surprise under wraps. As a result, it’s important to know if there are appropriate changing facilities or space to change.

Noise limits and restrictions

When hiring any performers for your wedding, including bands and singers, it will be important to find out if there are any noise restrictions at the venue. Some questions to ask will include:

  • Does the venue have any noise restrictions or limits that could affect the performance of the singing waiters?
  • Are there specific time restrictions when live music or performances must end?
  • Is there any soundproofing for other areas in the venue or for nearby residents?

Power capacity and technical requirements

For any love performance at your wedding venue, power considerations will need to be taken into account. As a result, you should consider asking:

  • What is the power capacity at the venue, and will it be sufficient to accommodate any sound equipment needed for the performance?
  • Are there accessible power outlets in the performance area for amplifiers, microphones, and other electrical equipment?
  • Can the venue provide assistance with technical setup and support during the performance?

Logistics and coordination

For an outstanding singing waiter performance, it will be important to coordinate effectively with the venue to keep the surprise performance hidden and to make sure everything runs smoothly. Some important questions to ask your venue will include:

  • How will the timing of the singing waiters’ performance fit into the overall schedule of the wedding day?
  • Will the venue coordinate with the performers regarding arrival times, setup, and any specific requirements?
  • Is there a designated point of contact at the venue who will liaise with the singing waiters and ensure everything runs smoothly?
  • How much space is available for them to move around comfortably during their act?
  • Will the venue provide any assistance in setting up this space for the performers?

Menu and service considerations

Finally, it will be important for the singing waiters to coordinate with the food delivery to ensure a fantastic performance at just the right time. As a result, you should ask a number of questions about the menu and service. These include:

  • Can the venue accommodate any special requests regarding the timing of the performance in relation to meal service?
  • Will the singing waiters be integrated into the serving staff throughout the wedding, or will they require separate coordination for their performance?
