It can be a little overwhelming trying to choose the perfect venue for your special day. Here are some top tips that will help you to find the right venue.
What type of wedding do you both want?
A perfect starting point is to think about what type of wedding you both want. Think about your personalities and have a good chat about what will make the day just perfect for both of you. You may want a traditional wedding or you may prefer a small intimate gathering, or perhaps a beach wedding abroad is your idea of heaven – there are lots of options to consider. When you have decided on the type of wedding, you will then be able to consider suitable venues.
How much do you want to spend?
You have decided on the type of wedding that you want, the next question has to be how much would you like to spend? With this in mind, you can look into different venue options to find ones that will be within your budget. It is important to stick to your budget and it is certainly possible to find amazing venues, even on a small budget.
When choosing a location for your wedding, it will be important to consider where your guests will be travelling from. Some of your guests may not be local, so opting for a venue that is easily accessible for them will be important. You should also consider if your guests may need accommodation close by to the venue. You may have guests from overseas, so it is also worth thinking about the closest airports to your venue. It is essential to carefully consider the experience and comfort for your guests.
What will be the perfect venue size?
So you know the type of wedding that you would like, you know your budget and you have established the best location for it. The next important question is what size venue will you need. Do you need a large venue to accommodate all your friends and family or is it going to be a small and intimate celebration?
