Wedding Venues: 5 Surprising Things To Do Before Booking The Perfect Venue

April 28, 2017

 

 

Finding the perfect venue takes time and patience. But hey, when you finally sign that contract you can check "book venue" and "set wedding date" off the

to-do list! Here are a few tips to think about before setting out in search of the perfect venue for your special day. 

 

1. SET YOUR BUDGET

 

Setting a realistic budget is extremely important! Make sure to do your homework and get a feel of what the average price point is for venues meeting your qualifications before starting to book appointments for walk-throughs. There is nothing worse than finding the dreamiest venue only to realize it is far over your budget.

 

2. DRAFT A GUEST LIST

 

Drafting a guest list will give you a feel of how many people you expect to attend. Most venues have both a minimum and maximum amount of guests that they can accommodate. This is a good starting point to research venues that will fit your needs.

 

3. MAKE A LIST OF QUESTIONS TO ASK 

 

It is always important to ask questions when meeting with a venue. A few examples would be to find out if they have any vendor restrictions, if they provide in-house catering and if there will be any other weddings or events going on the same day. 

 

4. DECIDE ON THE LOOK AND FEEL YOU WANT YOUR WEDDING TO HAVE 

 

The venue you choose will be the backdrop and set the ambiance for the entire event. Ask yourself if you are looking for something traditional or maybe you are looking for a more modern and laid-back style. Your venue should be an expression of you and your tastes.

 

5. HIRE A PLANNER  

 

Hiring a wedding coordinator will release the stress not only on your big day but from the moment the wedding planning process begins. Coordinators can help you prioritize and provide professional advice in every aspect leading up to the day of. eddnig Venuesduding Venes
