    I'm going down for my first site visit this weekend! Woo! We are hoping to decide on a location this weekend.

    I'm trying to prepare a list of questions to ask the wedding coordinator. Is there anything I should specifically ask? Any lessons learned that any of you have? Do any of you have a list of questions you used?

    I'm just nervous about making sure we cover all the bases!

    I'd appreciate your help! Thanks!
