Finding the right wedding venue takes a lot of time and research and can often be one of the hardest parts of planning a wedding. You need to make sure that
your venue ticks all the right boxes before you make a final decision.
Your venue will influence your budget as well as the atmosphere on the day so before you sign on the dotted line, below are three important things to
consider before you decide on your wedding venue.
- Venue size. Look at how many people you’re planning to invite to your wedding versus the
number of people the venue can comfortably cater for. A crowded reception can be quite uncomfortable and if a venue is too large, it can affect the atmosphere and the overall look and feel. Put an
initial guest list together before you start venue shopping so that you can make a better decision.
- What about the drinks? Alcohol and drinks are a big part of your wedding so it’s
important to find out whether you can bring your own alcohol and what the costs are or if the venue will supply the drinks. Since you will also need a licensed bartender to serve alcohol, find out
whether the venue can assist with this so that you can factor those costs into your final budget.
- Preferred suppliers. You’re going to be working with several different suppliers in
the time leading up to and on your wedding day. Many venues require you to use their suppliers, which may or may not suit your wedding style. So, find out about this before you make a
booking. If they do work with specific suppliers, make sure that you’re happy with their experience, style, personality, and pricing. When a venue works with preferred suppliers, it does mean they’re
confident in their experience and ability to deliver. However, in my view, it’s more important for you to choose suppliers that fit in with your overall style, budget and other
There are many different factors to consider when choosing the perfect wedding venue but make sure that it’s a space that speaks to your personalities and
style as a couple.
