How To: Find the Perfect Wedding Venue

February 8, 2016


Booking the perfect wedding venue requires quite a bit of forethought. Whether you’re thinking about nabbing an elegant ballroom or dressing up the neighborhood bistro, make sure your venue will provide the appropriate backdrop for your Special Day. Before you book, consider mulling over a few details that will help you choose the right venue!

Ensure that your venue is not too big or too small. You’ll want your guests to comfortably enjoy the ceremony. Also, think beyond the number of guests that will be in attendance. Imagine how big you want the altar to be and decide whether you want a sit-down dinner or buffet at the reception. These are all major factors that will determine how much space you’ll ultimately need.

This is where you hone in on the bells and whistles that each venue has to offer. Many locations offer arrival gift packages, welcome receptions, and brunch for your guests to enjoy. The venue should be child-friendly as well, if you’re including little ones in your celebration. Inquire about what accommodations the location has that will keep your younger guests entertained as well.

The decision to have a grand ceremony or an intimate affair will determine the best location for tying the knot. If you have strong ties to your childhood stomping grounds, explore the hidden gems located within your hometown. On the other hand,  jet setting to your dream destination is also an option. Keep in mind that planning a destination wedding doesn’t have to break the bank. Many resorts offer all-inclusive packages that will be kind to your budget.

You’ll be eager to sign off on the first venue that catches your eye – however, it’s important to iron out the details first. Choosing the right location for your ceremony will ensure that you have a spectacular wedding experience!
