Every wedding decision that you make plays an important part in creating the perfect wedding. There are some choices and decisions that have greater importance than the other. Securing the right venue for your wedding is a big choice.
The place where you will be having your ceremony plays an integral part in your wedding. It will set the tone. Here are the top tips for you for choosing the perfect venue for your special day. In these tips are mentioned the important factors that you need to consider while choosing the wedding venue.
1. Starting early
Always keep one thing in mind that all the good venues are booked at least 6 to 8 months in advance. You have to keep the venue selection task at the top while planning for your wedding. The reason is that when the desired venue is selected, the couple then plans other things like guest list, décor, food etc.
So whatever factors you look into, you have to make sure you choose the wedding venue well in advance. If you chose it at the last minute then there can be plenty of problems.
2. Go with your taste and personality
Every person is unique, every couple is unique and so are there choices. As a couple, both of your choices matter. So have a discussion and talk about the type of wedding you want and also the type of venue. There are so many wedding themes. You can choose to have a relaxing beach wedding or maybe a fancy wedding at one of the castles in England. In short, choose a wedding venue that suits both of yours personalities.
3. Budget Budget Budget!
It all goes down to how much money you have and how much you are willing to spend on your wedding. It is possible to get a beautiful venue at a low budget. You will have to do some research for it. Get yourself a wedding planner or a budget calculator to calculate the amount of money you should spend on the venue according to your budget.
4. Ideal location
Location matters a lot in a wedding. You will be inviting people who live in different cities, states, countries and continents. The wedding should be at a place where everyone can easily reach. Think of the elderly guests who can’t travel that far. This is very important point but try to keep other factors in mind.
5. Style and vision
The wedding venue needs to be according to the vision and style that you have in mind. It all comes down to you and your partner’s preference. Are you aiming for a light theme wedding then it should be in a place that is bright and sunny. The venue should always match with the theme of your wedding.
6. Space of the venue
Take out your guest list. How many people are there? It can be a large list with over 500 guests or it can be small list of less than 50 members who are your close friends and family members. The venue you will book should have enough space to easily accommodate all your guests. It shouldn’t be too big or too congested.
7. Be open minded
Be open-minded of the fact that you may not always get the type of venue you were thinking of. The perfect location may have one or two problems. It can either be too small or there may be problems with the lightning. You will need to look into other options and location if there are too many problems in your ideal venue.
