Seven Tips for Finding the Right Wedding Venue
When you attend Weddings + Warehouses, how will you know which venue is right for your big event? Below are seven quick tips for narrowing your field of choices. On January 12, you can find the location that evokes your personality, taste and theme.
Consult with a Planner
No one knows how to plan a wedding better than an experienced planner. Just by talking with a planner about venue options, you quickly learn how spaces will work for your vision. You also learn about potential layouts and how much work each venue requires to meet your standards. When you buy your tickets for Weddings + Warehouses, consider bringing your planner along. If you do not have your own planner, you can meet one at each participating venue.
Focus on Your Vision
You obviously want a venue that fits your creative vision. A modern or urban venue best suits a modern wedding, whereas a historic location works very well for traditional affairs. Choosing the right venue helps you work with the space’s assets for your theme, instead of having to downplay aspects you wish to hide.
Know Your Guest Count
It sounds like a no-brainer, but you need to have an idea of how many guests will attend your nuptials, before choosing a venue. Trying to squeeze extra people into limited space causes problems beyond squeezing more chairs or tables into the square footage. You can also cause guest discomfort or even face fire code restrictions.
Stay on Budget
Remember that the venue is only one part of your wedding budget. You must also cover per-plate catering costs, floral design, wedding planning, decor and entertainment expenses. For many brides, the right venue can cut back your decor costs because of a great atmospheric fit. Likewise, an ill-fitting venue often leads to higher decor and floral costs.
Get to Know What Each Venue Includes
Some venues require you to use their designated caterer. Others require you to use their resources for everything from the dance floor to chairs, tables and other decor. Ask about these policies and whether fees include tax and gratuities, or if you must cover these costs above the cost estimate.
Stick to Your Vision for Your Day
When it comes down to it, the biggest reason for choosing a venue is how you feel within that space. Like when putting on a wedding dress or a great tuxedo, you know when the fit is right. If the venue makes you happy but costs more than you planned, consider where you can make accommodations in your budget to cover the added cost. Your opinion counts most and you should feel great as you envision your big event in your venue space.
