Planning the Wedding Venue


Wedding Venue

Your wedding venue is one of the most important parts of planning your wedding day, and the first item to plan on the checklist. You must choose the location and venue for your dream moments before you plan any other details. It requires so much more than just the space. This space will set the tone and vibe of your entire event. Keep reading to discover tips for choosing the perfect wedding venue.


The First Step


Before you begin your search for a wedding venue, there are a few things to know. You should know your estimated guest count, budget and location. The ideal venue will have the space to accommodate your guests and entertainment. Most couples spend about half of their budget on the wedding venue, but this calculation depends on the venue and the budget. An all-inclusive wedding venue can provide more savings than renting an empty space, furnishings and décor separately. The location is important. You will want your venue to be conveniently located and have picturesque views.

Choosing the Location for the Wedding Venue


A wedding venue provides an enchanting space, but make sure it is located where it matters. The location should be significant and meaningful to you and your partner. You should also consider the distance to an airport, surrounding hotels, accessibility and parking. An all-inclusive wedding venue integrates the ceremony and the reception space, which has a few really nice benefits to think about. It definitely avoids the transportation issues and the gap between the ceremony and the reception. It gives you better control over the flow of your event and timing. It is also convenient for guests. A wedding venue that combines the ceremony and reception space saves money.


Designing the Wedding Venue


The design and theme are what make a wedding unique. The internet has no shortage of inspiration. Articles, blogs and social media are overflowing with wedding design ideas. Creating a collage of ideas is a good place to start, and helps you discover your style. Booking a wedding venue with professional designers and décor makes designing your venue an easy and affordable process. If you book your wedding at an all-inclusive wedding venue, the furnishings, décor and design services are included. If you book an empty space, you will need to rent furnishing and designs, and reinvent the entire space on your own. A blank canvas would probably require the assistance of a professional wedding designer.


Services at Your Wedding Venue


An empty space provides limited services, if any at all. An all-inclusive wedding venue usually provides all the essential services, and more. You should try to book a venue that provides the furnishings, chinaware, banquet staff, bar services, food managers and day of event coordination services. A bundle of the essential services can save you thousands on the wedding venue.
