Just like any element of your wedding day, it’s important to consider carefully what type of venue you’re looking for and to ensure the venue gives you everything you need for your special day. There’s a lot to look for in a wedding venue and as it’s the place you’ll get married in, or celebrate your wedding reception in, it has to be just right.
With that being said, here are five things to look for in a wedding venue when you start planning your wedding.
Is it the right location?
The first thing you need to look for is the location and what that means for any guests coming to the big day and the ease of getting to this venue for both you and your party.
Is it the right location for where you want to get married? For some, getting married in their hometown is the preferred choice. For others, they may want to find a wedding venue in a nearby city or out in the sticks. It’s a personal preference and one that is worth chatting to your partner about before going out venue hunting.
What does the package include?
The next question to ask is, what’s included in the package? It’s an important question to ask and one that will likely determine how much you’re going to spend on your wedding overall. Some wedding venues won’t have much in the way of extras to offer, while others will provide the full works.
Consider what you’re going to need and what you might not get with the venues you’re looking at. You’ll be able to determine which venue is best suited for you once you’ve got the lay of the land with all wedding venue packages on offer.
Does it accommodate all of your guests?
Your guests are important to your big day because they are there to celebrate you. Therefore, it’s important that you make sure to accommodate all of your guests by picking a venue that will cater to them all.
There’s no point in picking a venue that won’t cater to all of the guests you’re planning to invite, so check this prior to visiting those you plan to check out to avoid getting your hopes up on one that doesn’t match your criteria for guests.
Is it affordable?
The big question that comes with many elements of the wedding is, is it affordable? If it’s within budget – great! If it’s not, then you’re going to want to make compromises elsewhere or cross the venue off your to-view list.
Can it deliver on the wedding of your dreams?
Finally, consider whether the venue is going to deliver the wedding of your dreams or if it’s missing something. You’ll get the vibe of a venue as soon as you step foot into it and for many, if you can imagine yourself getting married there, then it’s the venue for you.
