5 Tips to picking your Wedding venue!
Before you start looking online for venues, I recommend making a rough guest list of all your family and friends you want to invite to your big day. This will help you narrow down venue options that are too big or too small. Then, you will only be looking at places that will fit the number of people you are wanting to have at your big day.
The next you need to think about is your budget. Weddings can add up quickly if you don’t plan ahead. You should have an idea of your budget so you aren’t going near places you get excited about but are way out of your budget. Again, you want to narrow it down so you are looking right in your sweet spot. Also, make sure to ask them what is included in the rental price. Some venues will include tables and chairs and all of that stuff and some don’t. So be sure to double check that.
If you are looking for a specific date, then you need to look for venues at least a year in advance (the sooner the better) because things book up fast in the wedding industry! Narrow it down to 3-5 dates you would be happy with and see if the different venues you like match up.
When looking at venues keep in mind the season you are looking at the venue in and the season your wedding will be in. This could drastically change the look of your wedding, or the vegetation that will be there on your wedding day. TIP: If you are planning for an outside wedding, be sure to have a back up location or tent for poor weather.
Keep your guests in mind when looking at venues. If a lot of your guests are from out of town, consider having your wedding close to hotels or camp grounds.
