Choosing the Perfect Wedding Venue

Planning your wedding is an exciting process, but it can also be incredibly stressful. One of the biggest decisions you have to make is choosing the perfect wedding venue. Once you have this nailed, the rest of your planning becomes much easier.

Where to Start?

Before beginning your search, ask yourself the following questions:

  • What type of wedding are you having? Are you looking for a church ceremony or a civil ceremony?
  • What is your budget? Knowing this will help you narrow down your wedding venue choices.
  • What is your guest count? This will affect how much space you need.
  • What type of atmosphere do you want? Do you want something more formal or informal? Modern or traditional?

Questions to Ask the Wedding Venue

When searching for a wedding venue, there are a few key questions you should always ask:

  • Will the space be exclusively yours? This is especially important if you don’t want other celebrations/events to overlap.
  • What type of catering is available? Some venues offer in-house catering, or have a list of caterers you can choose from for your event.
  • Does the venue have any restrictions? Does the venue have a noise curfew? Is there a limit on the number of guests you can have? Are candles, flowers, or other decorations allowed?
  • Is the venue available on your chosen date? Make sure the venue is available on your desired date before putting down a deposit.

View the Venue in Person

Once you’ve done your research, it’s best to set up a site visit to view the venue in person. This is a great chance to get a feel for the space and get a better picture of what your wedding will look like. You should also ask to see photos of previous weddings that have been held at the venue.

Making the Final Decision

Choosing the perfect wedding venue can be stressful, but with some patience and research, you can find a venue that fits all your needs. Once you find the perfect venue, the rest of the wedding planning will become much easier!
