One of the most important decisions you’ll make about your wedding is where to have it. There are a number of deciding factors when looking for the ideal venue for your dream wedding. To help make the process as smooth as possible, create a checklist of everything you would like in a location for your big day.
Here are some important items you’ll want to keep in mind when creating your wedding venue checklist:
If you plan on having guests travel from out of town, consider a venue that’s conveniently close to or partnered with local hotels and lodging. Not to mention, the views and scenery of the location must satisfy as well.
If you have your heart set on a certain date, one of the first questions to ask is whether that day is available. Keep in mind that popular wedding venues get booked up far in advance.
A venue must have the right amount of space to comfortably fit all of your guests. Ask a venue associate whether or not there is a minimum or maximum number of guests their event spaces can accommodate.
Ceremony and Reception
Having your ceremony and reception at the same venue makes your wedding planning even easier. If this is something you feel is necessary, ask the venues if they are set up for both. Versatility among a venue’s spaces is always a plus.
Beauty Salon Offerings
Having a wedding venue that provides salon services means that you and your bridal party will have a more relaxed time getting ready. Look your best with less stress of time and transportation.
If you’re thinking of having certain decorations put up to coordinate with your wedding theme, check with wedding venues to see if this is allowed. Some venues will even handle decorating for you.
Finding a wedding venue that offers catering services will give you one less item on your wedding planning to-do list. Hoping to pair food and wine? Make sure the catering options come with a wine list to satisfy.
Weather Contingency Plan
If you’re planning on having an outdoor ceremony or reception, it’s essential to have options if the weather doesn’t cooperate the day of. Ask about the venue’s weather contingency plan.
