Planning a wedding is not easy. While thinking about every detail of a wedding is optional, from wearing a designer wedding dress to ditching the flowers to forgoing the wedding cake on your D-day, but there is one thing you can’t skip: Wedding venue! After all, you will need a place somewhere for your family and friends to gather and celebrate!
But finding the perfect venue is not an easy task. There are so many options to choose from, whether you’re looking for a stunning palace, an elegant hotel, a cosy church, or a quiet stretch of beach. So here are the tips from a wedding planner for finding your dream wedding venue.
Talk to your Planner and asked questions First: Yes, before you start looking for a wedding venue! “Planners are much more familiar with the capabilities of a venue, the layout, and the time and items you’ll need to transform it really. If there’s a creative way to make it unique or a quirk about the space that could make your vision hard to accomplish, your planner will know! Before signing on the dotted line, make sure you ask all the necessary questions because all negotiation power is no more useful after the contract is finalised.
Know Your Guest List: Venue is much more dependent on your wedding guest. Knowing how many guests you’re expecting to invite before you go looking at sites will help save you from headaches down the road. Couples often neglect and not consider how many people they will invite or how many their parents will wish to add, so have that conversation early to know what you’re really working with to avoid any mess.
Consider Your Budget: Know how much your total budget is, as well as approximately what your design will cost to execute. If adding that on top of the cost of using the space blows your budget out of the limit, you’ll either need to scale back your design and expectations or look at more affordable spaces. If you want a royal wedding, than you need a palace or hotel with a royal touch. Consult with your planner to get information that’s more specific than the national averages often found online.
Look at logistics: Convenience is key. Whether it’s enough rooms for your guests, firm distance from the ceremony to the reception, a short drive from the guest hotels to the venue, these are all considerations that are more important when selecting your location. Your guest experience will be affected by logistics, so make it easy and comfortable for everyone.
Confirm a backup plan: Because weather can be a gamble, make sure you have a backup plan in your pocket. For the bride that has always imagined her reception outdoors under the stars, a gloomy forecast can be heartbreaking. Always make sure you have a backup Plan B, whether that is building a tent or moving the celebration inside. And also consider how your decor will change as well.
Stay True to Yourselves: You should be looking for a venue that makes you feel the same way much like the feeling you get when you find your perfect wedding dress. You can find yourself walking down the aisle, imagine your photos with a particular dream background, and feel confident your guests will enjoy the wedding venue as much as you do.
