The biggest decision that you’ll make for your big day will be where it will be hosted, so you may feel a lot of pressure to make the right choice. Continue reading to learn the five things that you can’t ignore when looking for and choosing a wedding venue so you can rest assured you won’t regret your choice.
1. How Much Will It Cost?
The first thing you need to do when you begin planning your wedding is determining your budget. How much money are you planning on spending in total, and how much of that total do you plan on putting towards your venue? Venues that don’t provide the catering may be more affordable, but you’ll need to consider the cost of a separate catering company if you take that route. On the other hand, if you opt for a venue that provides all of the food, drinks, and even your cake, you might save in the end. To look for various options, compare pricing, and to locate the best deals.
2. Will the Venue Accommodate Your Guests Comfortably?
Early in the wedding planning process, you should take some time to come up with a tentative guest list. This will give you a good idea of just how many people are likely to be in attendance on your big day, and will provide you with another guide to use when searching for the ideal venue. A venue that won’t be able to comfortably fit all of your guests and give them room to socialise and dance simply won’t be sufficient. On the other hand, if your guest list is too small for a venue, they may not even want to book your event unless you pay for people who won’t be there just to meet the minimum.
3. Location of the Venue
Yet another thing you need to consider is the location of your venue, even if you aren’t planning a destination wedding. You want the venue to be easy to reach for all of your guests, and there should also be ample parking available.
4. Can You Customise the Menu?
A venue that provides you with the catering for your guests to party the night away should be able to accommodate your needs, whether you want a Kosher meal, a vegan meal, or any other special menu. If a venue can’t accommodate your requests, keep searching for one that will.
5. The Style of the Venue
Every wedding venue has its own unique vibe and décor. When you are thinking about booking a venue, go see it in person. Take a tour and look at the room that your ceremony and/or reception would take place in. If you don’t like the style of the venue or it will clash with your wedding’s theme and style, you may want to keep looking for the ideal fit. If you keep the above things in mind, you are sure to find the right wedding venue in no time.
