4 Things To Look For In A Wedding Venue
If you’re looking for a venue because you recently got engaged and are looking to get married, you’ve entered an exciting stage in wedding planning! Hooray and congratulations to you! You have probably Pinterest-ed your little heart away on all the different wedding inspiration that caught your eye. Maybe you want something more romantic, with roses and hanging lights, and sparklers for your guests to hold at the end of the ceremony while you and your love exit the venue. Maybe you’re someone who wants a more relaxed and intimate wedding with a few friends and family members, complete with DIY favors.
When looking for a wedding venue, there are many things you want to keep in mind, like pricing, location, and accessibility. However, there are also a few other things you should be considering that might seem a little less obvious. When choosing venues (or party venues), here is what to keep in mind.
1. What is the vision of the event?
When looking at party venues, you need to think about what the “theme” will be. If you and your hubby are into art, you might want to think about renting out an art gallery or something that more in line with your love for art. However, if you are looking for a place that’s reminiscent of a fairy tale wedding, look for somewhere with luscious gardens, large windows to allow in natural light, and maybe even a fountain or gazebo. Gardens make some of the best places to have a wedding!
2. Think about the amount of guests you have
Looking for places for wedding receptions? You need to think about your guest list. Many times when couples of planning their wedding, they don’t realize just how big or how small their wedding actually is anticipated to be. If you’re inviting you entire extended family, your whole college, and what feels like your entire hometown, you need to accommodate for it. That means choosing a venue with enough space to accommodate each person and make them feel comfortable.
3. Remember the budget
Unfortunately, we all have a budget. You might have a much larger budget than others, but in the end, we do have to remember that certain number. The average budget for just the wedding ceremony and reception is $28,385. Many venue spaces have rooms that might be cheaper than their luxurious varieties, but that’S okay! You might not be able to afford the room overlooking the water with the floor-to-ceiling windows, but you might find one overlooking a beautiful garden or golf course, and can make some DIY gorgeous wedding decorations for a fraction of the cost.
Looking for party venues can be a lot of fun! If you are looking to plan your dream wedding, you should think about these different factors.
