Tips to Select A perfect Wedding Venue (2019 Edition)
Setting the stage for a wedding is not an easy task. There are so many tasks leading up to the wedding. But the one thing that can make or break a wedding is the wedding venue. If you fail to select the perfect one then trust us, the wedding itself can become spoilt. Remember, the venue needs to be perfect for you as well as your guests. So keep the nitty- gritties in mind when booking the wedding venue.
Here are our tips for booking the best wedding venue day:
Make The Big Decisions:
Whether you’re planning an intimate ceremony for a small group of close friends and family, or a huge extravaganza featuring everyone you’ve ever met – it’s important to nail down two things: the estimated number of guests, and what kind of ceremony you want. Once you’ve determined these things, you can really start planning a wedding! Both these choices are important to consider while choosing a wedding venue. There’s a dream location for any wedding – from a traditional mandapam to a gorgeous garden- you just need to make sure you’ve picked the right one.
It’s All About The Money:
It’s never fun to worry about money, which is why it’s so important to draw up a budget and stick to it. Once you’ve determined what you can afford, you can eliminate venues that are too expensive. No one wants a lacklustre wedding, but no one wants to start their married lives in debt either. Being financially responsible will help ensure you get your dream wedding – without having to worry about penny-pinching in the long run.
Raise A Glass (Or Plate):
Food and drink are an essential part of any gathering. Not only should you have a firm food and beverage budget, but you should also take into consideration how your wedding venue will influence your menu. For example, if you are hosting your wedding at a hotel, you can count on their kitchen and bar. However, if you opt for a mandapam or a church, you will have to find alternative catering. Luckily, plenty of restaurants, catering companies, and hotels specialise in these events. But it’s still a good idea to make sure that your wedding venue has a viable (and reasonable) food and drink option.
That Hits The Spot:
Location is important too. Make sure your wedding venue is close to hotels, and not too far off the beaten track. If you’ve opted for a more remote spot, make sure you’ve organised transport home for your guests or booked some rooms nearby. Responsible fun is the best kind of fun – and you want everyone to make memories they’ll treasure as much as you will.
Ensure that your wedding venue has the infrastructure required to host your guests and the ceremony itself. If you’re revolutionising the wedding business and boldly going where no one (or no other couple) has gone before, you will be setting a precedent in more ways than one. You won’t be able to rely on the experiences of others who have used the wedding venue and will face some problems that are usually already taken care of in established venues. For example, the lack of parking space can cause major inconveniences. If you’re making wedding plans, keep the number of guests you’ve invited in mind while inspecting the parking facilities.
So, these are the tips for selecting the perfect wedding venue. Remember, you need to book the wedding months before the actual ceremony. If you’re going for a really popular venue, then book the venue as soon as the wedding date is fixed.
