Choosing the location for your wedding is an important decision. It’s the place that you will exchange your wedding vows surrounded by your family and friends. This location sets the ambiance, mood and the essence of the wedding. Your wedding venue will provide a backdrop for your day, and should reflect your personality as a couple.
My years of experience in planning the perfect wedding has taught me that there are a few other practical things to consider when selecting a wedding venue.
- First, choosing a venue takes a lot of things into account: the facilities, outdoor space, number of guests, catering options, décor, and ease of access.
- Make sure the space is flexible enough to accommodate the number of guests you are planning to have.
- If you’re considering an outdoor location for your wedding, be sure to have a back-up plan in case the weather doesn’t cooperate.
- You will also need to be aware of any restrictions including exclusive vendor agreements, start and end times, and sound requirements.
Perhaps the most important aspect involved in choosing a location for your wedding is how flexible the location will be and how willing they are to accommodate your needs and wishes.
Your choices of venues are limitless – hotels, private homes, estates, parks, beaches and of course, destination locations.
