Your dream wedding includes a dream destination but with a lot of factors to consider like the location, its perks and your guest count, finding the perfect place can be dizzying. But take a deep breath and read through these tips to help you get married in the venue of your dreams.
Here or abroad? Indoor or outdoor? This seems to be the first line of questions that you have to check off your list. With so many locations claiming to be the best wedding destination, choosing one can be dizzying. To break down your options, consider how much you are willing to spend for the venue itself and the expenses for your guests. Also, consider avoiding peak dates as it can be more expensive and it will be a more hectic week for the staff so they may not focus on your wedding alone.
This is the trickiest factor to consider. Every couple wants a storm-free ceremony and sometimes, no matter how many months you have been forecasting, the weather can still be as unpredictable as ever. Since there is no way to stop the rain, make sure that your outdoor venue has an indoor back-up or tents are available as an alternative.
Some like their weddings to be intimate while others want it to be grand. Do some ocular inspections at your prospect venues to make sure everyone will fit, including the back-up area. Your guests’ comfort should be a priority so also consider the proximity of the venue and if it is a destination wedding, how much they will have to spend to be there on your special day.
Venues offer packages that will already include your ceremony, reception, accommodation and even catering services all in one place. This is the easiest option for you as you need not spend on transportation that will bring your entourage to and from different locations. Guests and even suppliers will also appreciate the convenience of staying put.
Choosing a place that provides multiple services is a jackpot. Not only are your venue concerns taken care of but also your food, audio, and visual system. Some packages include styling and even your wedding cake. You need not contact an army of suppliers to help you out and since it’s your special day, you would want to be as hassle-free as possible.
