4 Tips to Think About Before Choosing a Wedding Venue
If you want to have a magical wedding, it is important to select the right venue. Choosing the right wedding venue will ensure both you and your guests have a great time. The last thing you want is having to change your ceremony program at the last minute because you did not select the right venue. Follow the four tips below to find the right venue for your big day.
i) Size of the venue
Before you start searching for a wedding venue, it is important to know how many guests will be showing up. Make sure you go for a venue that is spacious for the guests you expect. Of course, you do not need to know the exact count of visitors that will be coming. However, having an estimate of the number of guests you expect will make it easier for you to determine whether a venue would be ideal. For example, you can easily cross off venues that are too large when you expect about 50 visitors.
ii) Aesthetics of the venue
You should also consider the aesthetics of the venue. The theme of your wedding should be supported by the style of the venue. For example, if you wish to have a country-themed wedding, a venue with an elegant barn would be a great choice.
You should discuss with your partner early on about the wedding theme you would like. This way, you can end up saving on the d?cor and decorations if you choose a venue that is tailored to the specific theme you prefer.
iii) Do you want a full-service venue?
Another important thing to consider before choosing a venue is whether it offers full wedding service. For example, if you select a full-service venue, you may not need to work with other contractors to make your big day a success. On the other hand, working with a full service wedding vendor may limit your options regarding the contractors you would like to be involved in the wedding preparations.
Before settling for a full-service wedding venue, it is important to gauge the pros and cons. If you find it too hectic to find or manage the wedding contractors, then it would be best to let the vendor provide them for you. However, you may end up having to work with contractors that you do not prefer. You can go for a full service or conventional venue depending on what you would like.
iv) How will the weather be like?
As you evaluate different wedding venues, it’s also important to know whether they will be suitable for the season when you will be tying the knot. This is important as some venues may be attractive during summer but dull over other seasons.
