Wedding planning is a happy and exciting time, but it comes with a lot of choices. From cakes, flowers, colors, décor, and decorations, you can quickly tire of all the decision making. Choosing a venue can help you with some of those decisions, so be sure to choose wisely. Here are some tips to help you make your decision.
One of the most important considerations for deciding on a wedding venue is the location. Speak with your partner about what you are looking for. Do you want an outdoor wedding? How about a beach wedding? Or would you rather be indoors? Maybe a combination of an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception, or vice versa. When determining location, it is very important to consider the weather. Remember to factor in the time of year, the region your wedding will be held in, the time of day, etc. While no one can predict the weather, there are certain patterns that can be observed to help you make your decision. Keep in mind that it is always good to have a backup plan should the weather choose not to cooperate. Once you decide on the type of location you both want, you can narrow down your choices to include what you are looking for.
Next, you should consider the guest list. The venue you choose should reflect the number of guests you expect to be in attendance. For example, you wouldn’t want to choose a huge venue for a guest list of 100 people. Or you wouldn’t want to cram 500 guests into a tiny venue that can only hold half of that amount. Some other things to consider is the distance the venue will be for most of your guests to travel, as well as parking considerations. Choosing a location that is convenient for you and your guests and easy to navigate and find works out well for everyone.
An added bonus for a great wedding venue is one that offers planning assistance. Choosing a venue that has catering services and other wedding related vendors can be a huge help. It makes your decision that much easier to know that you have a contact person to help you with the planning, as well as on the big day itself.
