The first and biggest decision that you have to make regarding your wedding plan is selecting wedding venue. Your budget plays crucial role in this matter. Where you decide to hold your wedding influences every other decision that you make on the course. It will influence your vendors, budget, décor and even attire. For example, if you decide to get married at a barn, you probably will not choose a heavy ball gown. Or, if your venue is scheduled at a large hotel, you probably will not waste space and money with just 50 invitees.
The venue you pick will determine the number of guests you invite and its theme and style too. You need to allocate a good proportion of your wedding planning time to find the venue for your special day.
First and foremost thing to decide is the type of wedding you prefer. Will it be formal or informal, indoor or outdoor? If you prefer a wedding more intimate and low key, just surrounded by the close friends and family, then perhaps garden marquee is more of your thing. Or, if you want a lavish wedding with everyone you know to watch it, start looking for country house wedding venues with large capacities.
You can then start writing your guests’ name on the list and begin searching for places to suit your requirements. Estimate how many people you would like to invite on your big day, since not all places can accommodate a wide variety of wedding sizes. Nearly every venue will have a guest count minimum. It is important to come up with a solid estimate of your guest list early in order to plan your budget and select the right ceremony or reception spot.
Location! Location!! Location!!! Location you select need to be easy for the majority of your guests to get at. Even though the day is about you, it is also about your guests. Whether you are hosting your event close to home or planning a destination wedding, you need to think about others’ arrival feasibility. The location should be suitable for everyone. If you want to avoid expensive taxi charges and hotel bills for them, look for a wedding venue there where the majority of your guests live.
Budget is a key factor for most couples while considering venue. You should also discuss with your partner about the sort of wedding you would like and be prepared to compromise if you have different ideas. Before you deposit money, it is worth chatting to in-house co-coordinator to see if there are any deals or offers they can gift you for choosing to go with them.
Venue will play a huge role in shaping the ambiance for your wedding. Parking may not be critical factor in deciding your wedding venue but still look for place that has large parking space or empty areas around where parking is legal and safe.
