Finding the Wedding Venue

Wedding Venue

Your wedding venue will be one of the most important elements of your wedding day. It will be the magical place for your dream moments to come true, and will set the tone for the entire event. We are sharing a few tips for finding the wedding venue.

Taking the First Step

Planning a wedding can be exciting, but also very stressful. Some brides rush into planning before they have direction, while others fall into procrastination from being overwhelmed. The wedding venue is always the first step. Before you begin your search for a wedding venue, there are a few things to know. You should know your estimated guest count. Have an idea about the size of the venue. You should also have an idea about the location. Budget is important. You will need to recruit your contributors and determine a number for total spending. Ultimately, you are beginning a search for a wedding venue with the aesthetic you desire, the space to accommodate your guest count, and a cost that fits the budget. An all-inclusive wedding venue can create a money-saving bundle with the ceremony and reception space, and include all of the designs and services. Take the most important first step and tour the wedding venue.

Wedding Venue Location

The location of the wedding venue is important. The location should be significant and meaningful to you and your partner. You should consider the distance to an airport, surrounding hotels, accessibility and parking when thinking about your guests. However, avoid allowing guests to determine where you host your wedding day. This is your day. Choose a wedding venue where it matters to you.

The Design of the Wedding Venue

Your theme and personality will be conveyed in the design of your wedding venue. Booking a wedding venue with professional designers and exclusive décor makes the process easy and affordable. All-inclusive venues with a professional wedding designer can help you bring your vision to life. Avoid renting an empty space. If you book your wedding at an all-inclusive wedding venue, the furnishings, décor and design services are included. If you book an empty venue, you will need to rent furnishing, designs and reinvent the entire space. A blank canvas would probably require a professional wedding designer. You should try to book a venue that provides the furnishings, chinaware, banquet staff, bar services, food managers and day of event coordination services. A bundle of the essential services can save you thousands on the wedding venue.

Wedding Venue

Have a List

You should have a list of things you want, things you need, and things you should know. The one-stop wedding includes the ceremony and the reception space, which has a few really nice benefits to think about. It definitely avoids the transportation issues and the gap between the ceremony and the reception. Find out the maximum capacity and the possible layout for your ceremony and reception. Make sure there is a bridal and groom suite onsite. Find out how many hours the venue will be available during the event, and before. If you need extra time, you should know whether booking extra hours is a possibility. Create a list of what is important to you, and make sure the wedding venue can deliver.
