How To Choose The Perfect Wedding Venue
The wedding venue puts the word perfect in a perfect
wedding. Its importance is the very reason why you need careful consideration
before deciding on your perfect wedding venue.
Why The Venue Is
The purpose of any wedding venue is to establish the
theme, environment, and ambiance for the entire ceremony. Therefore, these are
the first decisions that need to be made. What is that theme, environment, and
ambiance you would like to create for your wedding? If you are having some
difficult getting started on ideas for your wedding, think back on wedding you
have attended in the past. What were some of the things you liked? What were
some things that you disliked? As you are considering these issues, make a list
of those things you like and dislike also include any advantages and
disadvantages you may note.
In the US, the available possibilities for
a wedding venue, exceptionally suited to your wedding needs, are almost
endless. Basically, once you know what theme, atmosphere, and mood you want to
set up, its just a matter of doing a little legwork. However, depending on the
actual location of your wedding, you may have to acquire a license. In some
international locations, outdoor wedding are not possible. All these things
need to be considered.
As with any thing else, your research is
essential to finding a great wedding venue, and it should be thorough and
hand-on. Question your friends, family, business associates, and colleagues to
refer their venues of choice. Start to compile your list of venue options. This
is where the legwork, I mentioned earlier, comes into play. You will need to
pay a physical visit to each one of these venues on your list of possibilities.
Check Them Out
As you start to develop your favourite
from the list, visit the ones you like at different times of the day. By doing
this, you get an idea of how different the venue looks as the lighting around
it changes. Dont be surprised if a venue offers a food tasting. This is normal.
However, a better approach would be to go to dinner at the venues restaurant
unannounced and observe the service and the quality of the food.
you pay a visit to each facility and made your choice, make sure that the
actual individual you are meeting with is indeed the person who will be dealing
with your wedding preparations and questions. Further, expert wedding
consultants suggest that any plans made with this individual should be put into
writing, making sure to adjust this document as necessary with any changes.
This all-important document is essential if, for whatever unforeseen reason,
the individual you were dealing with leaves, you can provide the new individual
with the details of your current plans. You need to be able to show this new
person what was previously agreed to.
Negotiations are key to getting what you want and saving money on wedding
expenses. Perhaps, the venue has specials or discounts cheaper days or seasons.
You wont know unless you ask.
There are some things you should not
compromise on when deciding on your wedding venue. Firstly, lets consider photo
opportunities. It is pointless to go into the importance of your wedding
photos. Everyone knows they are priceless. The venue should have picturesque
surroundings. If you have already chosen a photographer, take them with you to
visit the potential venue. Also as important, you need to consider the
versatility of the venue. If you planned an outdoor wedding and it rains, will
you be pleased with the quality of the other rooms and locations at your venue
of choice. Dont forget to find out if the venue will be exclusively available
to you on your wedding day.
Now that you are aware how to plan and
choose your perfect wedding venue, you can now confidently approach this issue,
make your decision, and enjoy your memorable occasion in a style only you can
