Tips to Choose the Perfect Wedding Venue

The perfect wedding venue is crucial because you’ll be getting married and making promises to stay with that one true person you want to spend the rest of your life with. All your friends and family will be there to see all this happen, and the wrong venue could be the biggest mistake of all. So, how do you go about choosing the perfect wedding venue and what factors do you need to take into consideration?

Budget Time

Firstly, before you do anything else, you need to sit down with your future husband and decide how much it is you can afford to spend, and how much you’re willing to spend. This will help you avoid finding somewhere you’ve fallen in love with and then realising you can’t afford it. You’ll also need to consider whether the venue you’ve chosen is already booked up during the time you’re due to get married, and whether or it’s big enough to host all your guests. Don’t choose somewhere too big either, if you’re having a small and intimate wedding with only a few guests, a large venue will make it seem like half the guests haven’t turned up. Choose a venue that’s the right size for the number of guests you’re having.

Themes and Ideas

If you have a theme you want to make sure the venue fits in with it. A modern wedding may call for a more contemporary venue, and if you’ve chosen something more traditional and classic, a venue that matches it will be a good idea. If you’ve chosen an outdoor wedding, then naturally you’ll be wanting to choose an outdoor venue that fits in with your theme. Pulling all the ideas and themes together will connect beautifully and create the right ambience.

Think of Your Guests

You’ll need to consider your guests too when thinking venues. If you have guests who are coming from afar, then it’s a good idea for your venue to be near a hotel. This will give them somewhere to stay after the celebrations end. It could be the difference in whether or not they can come.

If you can, get a wedding planner to help you and ask if you can see photos of the kind of venues you’re interested in. You could do with seeing what they look like inside and out before booking so you’ll have a good idea of what it’s going to be like. This is also helpful if you can’t visit immediately in person.

What Does The Venue Include?

As well as the venue itself what else does it offer? In the price does it include table, chairs and decorations/linen? What about food? Does it have a wedding menu, and is there a choice of different ones, does it include the actual service? It may be more cost effective if you go inclusive with a venue where you get it all in with the price, and then there will be less to worry about.
