There are many elements that go into picking the perfect venue for your wedding day. Before you start looking at venues you should make sure you ask yourself certain questions that will make an impact on the venue you choose. We’ve put a list together of the Top 5 questions you should ask yourself before you start!
1.Know Your Guest List
You should have an estimate of how many guests you are planning on inviting before you look at venues. Knowing how many guests you will have will make it easier to know which venues will accommodate all of your guests. You don’t want to end up choosing a venue that is too small for your guest list. This will also help you with your budget.
2. Have A Budget
Knowing what your overall budget is will be important when selecting your venue. You should have a specific budget for the total amount you want to spend on your venue. Don’t forget that depending on the venue, there may be extra costs other than just the rental of the space.
3. Know What’s Included
When choosing a venue, make sure you know what the cost of everything will be. Some venues are full-service and may charge per head. Other venues will allow you to bring in your own vendors and décor. Weigh your options and choose venues to explore that will work with your budget.
4. Choose A Venue That Matches Your Wedding Style
When seeking out venues, think about your wedding style and theme. Choosing a venue that fits with your theme will make it easier for your vision to come to life for your big day. If you are wanting a more modern themed wedding, choose a more modern venue. If you are wanting a more rustic or natural theme, choosing an outdoor venue or rustic barn style venue may fit better with your overall style.
5. Consider Your Guests
If you have many guests travelling from out of town or having a destination wedding, make sure the venue is close to the guest accommodations, and if needed have transportation set up for your guests to get to and from your wedding venue.
