Set a budget. Before you start looking at venues, it's important to set a budget. This will help you narrow down your options and make sure you don't overspend.
Consider the size of your guest list. When choosing a venue, you need to consider the size of your guest list. Make sure the venue can accommodate everyone you want to invite.
Think about the style of your wedding. What kind of wedding do you want? Do you want a formal, elegant affair or a more casual, relaxed celebration? Once you know what kind of wedding you want, you can start looking for venues that fit your style.
Do your research. Once you have a few venues in mind, it's time to do some research. Visit the venues in person, read online reviews, and talk to other couples who have gotten married there.
Book early. The best venues book up quickly, so it's important to start your search early. If you find a venue you love, don't wait to book it.
Here are a few additional tips for choosing a wedding venue:
Consider the location. Is the venue close to your home or your guests' homes? Is it accessible for people with disabilities? We've seen several wedding day disasters due to choosing the wrong location for your guests.
Think about the amenities. Does the venue have a ballroom, a ceremony site, a reception area, a kitchen, and a parking lot?
Ask about the cost. What are the rental fees? What are the catering costs? What are the other fees? Are there any decor restrictions such as no candles,cold sparklers or balloons ?
Get everything in writing. Once you've chosen a venue, make sure you get everything in writing, including the rental fee, the catering costs, and any other fees.
