He planned the perfect proposal and you said yes to your forever! Now it’s time to plan the perfect wedding day for you and your fiancé; but where do we begin??
Searching for the perfect venue and picking a wedding date are often the first steps in the wedding planning process so here are a few things to consider when looking for and selecting the PERFECT venue:
Having an idea of how many guests will be at your wedding will be essential so you can decide on the size of your venue! You want to be able to accommodate all of your guests comfortably and have room for all of your planned activities. You would never want your guests to feel cramped or for it to feel like an empty space! So, never go too little or too big!
We think that all of these points are super important, but the location of your venue is SO important! Choose a location that is not only convenient for you but also for your guests! A big thing to consider is where both ceremony and reception will be held. Will they be held at the same place? If they are at separate locations, will there be transportation available? Are there nearby accommodations for out-of-town guests? These are all big things to consider when searching for that perfect venue!
Of course, cost and budget is another big factor as well! Determine your budget and make sure that you stick to it! make sure you understand what is included in the venue packages that each venue offers. Consider the cost of the venue rental, food and beverage, any decor, and additional services they may include. Make sure that you are asking all the questions to ensure you understand everything they include.
Make sure the venue you choose is available on your preferred date and time and that it’s flexible enough to accommodate all your needs. You might also want to ask about their policies in regards to your vendor selection, set-up and break-down times, and any cancellation policies they may have. Also, depending on how hard you want to party you might want to consider if the venue has any restrictions, such as noise ordinances or curfews!
Lastly, but definitely not least… your venue needs to scream at you! The style and atmosphere of your wedding venue is such a big deal when it comes to considering the perfect venue! You want to choose a venue that screams you as a couple and where you can create the atmosphere that you want on your wedding day! You want to make sure you love every aspect of it, that includes the decor, lighting, and ambiance, as well as the flexibility to add your personal touch with any florals!
Booking the perfect venue is very important because it is going to set the entire atmosphere for your big day so make sure it’s the right one!
