Looking for your Wedding Venue

12 Months Before your Wedding: Looking for your Wedding Venue

A wedding requires a lot of planning and one of the important things to do is look for the wedding venue. One of the memorable things should be your wedding venue since it is where you will have your wedding. Looking for a venue should not be left until the last minute. it should be one of the first things you do. To make the process easier, we have come up with a few tips for you. 

Consult a Planner 

Talking to a wedding planner prior to browsing your options will give you a pro’s insight and lets you narrow down what can be a large and overwhelming array of options by giving them details like the style of wedding you’re wanting, size of the party, possible locations and budget that you’re able to work within. Plus, they will be able to give you their opinion on how you can use the unique spaces to fit with your vision. 

Refer to your Dream Wedding 

Remember your romanticized version of your dream wedding that you thought of in the last article, “Finding your Wedding Style”? Well, this will be a great tool to use when seeking out possible venues that align with your vision or will help to illustrate to a wedding planner how you imagine your wedding to be – and specifically where you imagine it to be. 

Refer to your Guest List 

Knowing how many guests you are expecting will give you a huge head-start on finalizing your venue location. Having this number going into your search will not only help slim down the number of venues that you have to browse through but will also save you from future headaches and heartbreaks that will come with choosing your venue according to your guest list size.  

TIP: On average, 10 to 20% of the people that you invite will decline the invitation or fail to show up. So, plan accordingly.

Refer to your Budget 

Like the Guest List, knowing what your budget will be coming into this stage will be much to your advantage. Talking to a local planner will give you a good idea of what the prices will be given the specifics of your wedding in the area that you are looking at. Also, if a program like a spreadsheet was used in the process of creating your budget, then it will be easy for you to visualize and organize everything accordingly. If you have to include decorations, it will be better knowing about them beforehand so you can include it in your budget. 

A Deal is a Deal 

Think about what will be included in your venue and what you will have to provide if the venue you chose does not include certain things. Venues can be considered full-service, where all things from chairs, tables, food service, linens and flowers will be included and contribute to the final cost, or non-inclusive, where you may be responsible to provide all the things mentioned previously, or anywhere in between. Whether the venue is all-inclusive or non-inclusive, you will need to take into consideration the price of renting all the commodities from 3rd party businesses or having the commodities included in the initial price to see what is most convenient to you. 

Explore your Options 

Chances are, this will be the biggest wedding investment you make in the entire wedding process, so shopping around is recommended. Just like any other investment you make, you need to shop around, visit top contenders, and ultimately choose the venue that checks off the most boxes for you. Remember, no venue will be perfect but you can make it perfect for you.
