Like any other factor regarding your wedding, choosing your wedding venue is one of the most important decisions you have to make; but the difference is that it’s slightly more important than others because it will affect your other wedding vendors, especially décor, entertainment and caterer, even your guests, and also, you should choose the best one within your budget. Here are things you should consider while choosing the best venue for your big day.
1. How Much You Want to Spend
You and your fiancé should discuss on how much you can and are willing to spend on the wedding venue. You will also have to do some research about current prices of different wedding venues and amenities available at them. Go through online venue directories; search by price, location, type of venue, amenities provided and other criteria.
2. Number of Guests
The next important criterion to consider is how many guests you want to invite for your big day so that you can decide the size of the venue. You should make sure to keep the number lowest since it’s easier to add guests than to remove.
3. Check Wedding Photographers’, Videographers’ and Planners’ Blogs
By checking such blogs, you get the idea of a wedding venue that can be the most suitable for you. For example, check the site of Paris wedding videographer team of husband and wife based in Prague and offering creative wedding videography worldwide for the last 10 years. Naturally you can see a wide array of wedding venues on their website and decide if you want a particular type of venue.
4. Wedding Date
The next important factor is your wedding date, because you should confirm if the wedding venue you choose is available on that date. Wedding date is significant for many couples for various reasons as some may want to marry on the day they first met while some may want to tie the knot on their parents’ or grandparents’ anniversary or any auspicious day depending upon their culture. If you have such a requirement you’ll have to check the availability. Or you have to choose a wedding date depending upon its availability, e.g. in off-season or on a week day.
Another good idea is to check with your place of worship before checking with other venues and their availability, especially if you will be marrying on-site.
Follow these tips and your venue hunting mission might be much easier. Find the venue just as you want and have a big day that you will be proud of.
