Organizing your own wedding is a stressful experience since there are so many things to do, people to hire and things to figure out. If you’re like most people, you probably haven’t organized a wedding before and no matter how many online guides you read, you may feel like you’re still lost and confused. However, if there is one thing you need to focus on first, it’s selecting a venue. There are likely tens and even hundreds of wedding venues for you to choose from, which makes this process a bit more difficult. However, it is very important that you find the right venue as quickly as possible and book it at least 6 months ahead of your wedding date. The majority of good venues are booked out months before and even a year in advance, so as soon as you get engaged or start planning for your wedding, you need to find a venue asap. We will now look at a few guidelines that will help you through this difficult process.
It is essential that you choose a venue that supports the theme of your wedding. So, you will need to think about a theme before you start looking at venues. Some people want to have a traditional wedding, which makes it easy to select a church as a venue or other religious building. On the other hand, if you want a modern or edgy wedding, then you may want to have an eclectic venue such as a warehouse. If you want to have a nautical themed wedding, then you’d likely want to get a venue that is near to the ocean. So, in order to choose a great event space, you’ll need to figure out what type of wedding you’d like.
Next, you need to ensure that the venue can easily accommodate the number of guests you’ve invited. Unfortunately, many people make the mistake of booking a venue that is either too big or too small. You may be wondering, how is a venue that is too big a problem? Well, if you’re holding your wedding in a space that is designed to hold 1,000 people and you only have 250 people attending, it will look as though very few people turned up for your wedding. It will also create too much space for people to move around in, which will result in less interaction between your guests, which is not typically desired. You may also have problems locating people for photos etc.
In addition to choosing a space that is the right size for your wedding, you should also choose one that has all the amenities that you require. Unfortunately, many people assume that a venue will have everything they need such as a sound system, multiple rest rooms, sufficient lighting etc. However, don’t make the mistake of assuming and check the venue thoroughly months ahead of your wedding so you can determine what is lacking and what you need to provide yourself.
In summary, this article has just looked at a few guidelines for choosing wedding venues. Even though this is a difficult task, after reading this article you would be more than equipped to find a great venue that will make your wedding a success.
