Choosing a wedding venue: Top 5 ideas to consider
There are many facets to planning your dream wedding. The perfect venue for your day is a major decision. It is important to remember these guidelines when choosing the right place to marry the love of your life.
- Make sure you have an idea of your guest count before exploring your venue options.
Many venues only accommodate a certain amount. You want to make sure the venue can host all of your guests before making this important decision.
- Do you have a theme?
If you know you want a more rustic feel, a hotel would not be the ideal venue for what you are trying to achieve.
- Do you want a full service venue or more of a DIY?
Many places offer packages that include everything from catering to photo booth and all you have to do is book your date. Then there are some venues that offer just a rental fee and you have the opportunity to get more creative and explore as many DJ’s and cake artists as you want. It is YOUR choice in deciding how involved you want to be.
- What is your budget?
This is one of the most important. You would hate to have your heart set on a certain venue only to find out that you can not feasibly afford it. It is a good idea to know the budget before exploring your options.
- Know your guests.
If you know there will be more than 10 children at your event you need to make sure the venue is suitable for kids. If your grandparents or elderly friends are coming, make sure the venue is handicapped accessible.
Lastly, there is no such thing as asking too many questions. Bring a list of questions that you have to each venue you tour. The owners of the event facility are used to answering many questions.
