Unless you’re planning a wedding in a hurry, then take your time to visit a few different venues, ask them how many guests they can seat for the wedding ceremony, ensure this fits with your plans. There is little point looking at a venue that can only sit 40 people for the ceremony if you are planning on inviting 150 guests to your special day. The other thing to check is whether or not the wedding venue is yours solely for the day, or whether other weddings are planned. You may not want to have your photos rushed because the next bride is arriving any moment. A lot of wedding venues in offer either the entire venue or an area where no other visitors will be able to access – determine what you want on your wedding day and make sure you plan this accordingly.
When you visit a wedding venue, don’t just turn up unannounced, not only may there be a wedding or another function already on, but the staff won’t be prepared to show you around properly. Telephone them first, make a proper appointment for one of their staff to meet you, they can then show you around the venue, answer all the questions you have and discuss your wedding plans. They will also be able to tell you whether or not the wedding venue is available for your chosen wedding date.
Large wedding venues sometimes offer set packages, which include a single price per head for their meal, wine, toast drink and evening buffet. All venues should provide you with a price list before you book anything, check if there is a cost for hiring the venue, on top of the consumables. Some venues charge less for Sunday – Thursday weddings, whilst Fridays and Saturdays are more popular wedding days and may cost more.
Book Early. Finally, once you’ve spent time searching for your perfect wedding venue, and you’re happy you’ve found your dream day, most places get booked well in advance, often years in advance. Don’t get disappointed, book your wedding venue early, or at least get yourself pencilled in their diary and ask that they call you immediately if any other wedding couple enquires about YOUR date!
