We're here to help
Does listing my property cost me anything?
Nope. Nothing. We create, list, and market your venue listing for you. All you do is wait for the perfect couples to come along and book your wedding venue.
When do I get paid?
We process payments quickly. Expect payment less than a week after a hosted event.
Can I also list any overnight accommodations I have along with my venue listing?
Absolutely! Couples love having the option to stay on site during their wedding weekend. Offering lodging is a great way to increase your property’s value.
Can Mayflower Venues help me choose a price?
Of course! Our proprietary pricing algorithm determines the best listing price to maximize your profit.
Can I keep the original name of my venue?
We qualify each couple before touring your venue and to protect our host’s privacy we anonymize venue name to prevent unwanted drop ins.
I’d love to work with Mayflower Venues but I don’t see other properties in my area. What do I do?
We’re growing quickly and expanding to new regions. Please fill out the form and we will be in touch as soon as we’re preparing for a launch in your area. The higher you are on the waitlist, the sooner your property will list if approved.
What if a couple contacts me directly?
No problem. Mayflower generally serves as your exclusive booking platform. If a lead reaches out to you directly you can simply connect them with your Mayflower Representative who can run the couple through our lead qualification process. Once they are ready to book, we’ll let you know and include a host referral bonus on the spot to compensate you for the lead.
Can I set my own availability schedule?
Yes! Mayflower Venues Hosts manage their own availability. You can host as few weddings as you want per year and block off any dates that won’t work for you!
