Planning a wedding? Addicted to poring over beautiful venue photos you find on the internet? We don’t blame you.
There are some amazing wedding settings that make anyone want to get hitched, simply for the photos. But there’s so much more to a wedding than taking good Instagram snaps.
Let’s go through a few of the crucial things that every newbie bride should think about when searching for a wedding venue.
And we’re not talking about your type of man here (we hope you’ve already got the choosing the right man bit figured out!). Are there specific types of wedding settings you’re gravitating towards? Can you picture yourself on a beach in summer, or is being cosy in a winery during winter more your thing? Your venue should reflect what you want your wedding to look like.
Let’s say you’re set on a spring wedding. You’ve visited a few venues, but you can’t seem to choose between them. Picture what you can do with the venue. Visualise the setting. Add the flowers, the fairy lights, and the decorations in your imagination. How does it look?
All wedding venues have food and drink packages available. Can the venue tailor it to your needs? What’s the pricing like? Have you tasted the food – and if not, can you?
It’s important to visit the venue you like a couple of times before you make a decision. Sometimes we can get swept off our feet with the beauty of the venue and miss practical things that could affect how smoothly your wedding runs. It could be something critical, like no parking available.
You might find the venue of your dreams, or you could find four. Don’t rush your decision. Go through this list, discuss it with your soon-to-be hubby and find the one that fits your needs and desires.
