Tips in Choosing Your Wedding Venue



Your wedding venue can either make or break the ceremony. Believe me, choosing a venue for this blissful event isn't easy. From looking for an exquisite ballroom, ethereal garden, to a romantic beachside scenery, you can feel like a kid lost in a candy store.

You will have so many ideas that are bursting at the seams. It can be agitating and stressful in the end. But it doesn’t have to be. Scroll down for some tips from AQWA Weddings to help you choose the perfect wedding venue.


Tips that will help you choose your wedding venue


  • Set your wedding style and theme.

These elements are perhaps the most exciting part of choosing a wedding venue! Your wedding style will determine your wedding venue. So, before you canvass on those romantic locations, set your wedding theme first.

The colour and the decor for your wedding will also help you decide on the venue. For instance, a classic wedding would require an elegant hotel ballroom.


  • Finalise the number of guests. 

Finalising the guest list will help you decide on the venue. How? You'd have a pretty good gauge on the size of the wedding venue and reception. It would also help you estimate the budget.

Always have a rough estimate 60-90 days before the wedding. Also, ensure that everyone has RSVP’d 72 days before the event because you can get charged for unexpected guests.


  • Estimate the budget.

Allocating a budget for the venue will secure your money for the flowers, the souvenirs, and anything else that you need for this blissful event. It's wise to make a spreadsheet and record all expenses related to the event. You can also place options for wedding venues on the spreadsheet.


  • Consider the location.

You have to consider several factors such as family and guests coming from all parts of the globe. The location should be accessible to all of your guests.

The theme of the wedding also plays a significant role in choosing the location. For instance, if you want a classic wedding, a grand ballroom would be fitting. Or - if you want to save money on decorations, outdoor wedding functions are a perfect choice. You can use the natural environment as decor.


  • Checklist

Planning a wedding venue can be tough. To make sure you got everything covered, prepare a checklist of all the things that you need. 


Final thoughts


It may seem like a dream task, but planning the wedding venue is not a walk in the park. Several details need to be accounted for in the process. You need to ensure that the venue will tick all the boxes mentioned above. It also helps to do a lot of research so that you can find the perfect location for your dream wedding.

 

Be prepared to place down a deposit on the spot to ensure that you will be able to secure the location for your wedding day.
