So if you are planning a wedding without the aid of a wedding planner, your first concern should be to find the wedding venue. Naturally, the style of venue directly impacts on the style of wedding for it will shape the entire style, theme and décor of the whole day’s proceedings. So after having set a date and a budget (actual or approximate), you need to decide what style of wedding you are after. No doubt some brides (and grooms!) will have been dreaming about their wedding for months or years before they are engaged and will have an idea about the style of wedding they want.
Find out the times you can access it from, what time you need to be out by. Speak to the caterers and ensure the dining that you need is properly organised. Check what things the wedding venue will provide, and what you’re expected to organise. Things like a large silver knife or cake stand, if these are not provided by the wedding venue, you’ll need to organise them yourself of face an awkward moment when it comes to cutting your wedding cake. Find out when your wedding DJ can get it to set up, all the little things need consideration, make a list and ask all the questions of your wedding venue.
Is it large enough to host a huge list of guests and activities you have planned already in your wedding? Here you shouldn’t limit yourself to entertainment and catering when booking your wedding venue. Is there enough space for dancing and entertainment? Do you have enough space for it? Is it has enough space to hang out over cocktails for non-dancers?
There are a wide range of different styles to choose from, from restaurants to rustic barns or boutique hotels to former palaces. Be warned that unfortunately, as is so often the case, you tend to get what you pay for. Furthermore, peak season Saturdays will usually be booked up 9 months or more in advance, so in order to secure the best venues it is important to either be flexible with the wedding date or start your venue search a year or so in advance. Be warned!
