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!
Size is an issue. Whoever says size doesn’t matter is wrong. If you have 60 people attended your wedding reception, you want to find a wedding venue that accommodates around 60-80 people. Why get a great venue that holds 150 people then not even half fill it, your wedding guests will be rattling around inside, and all atmosphere will be lost. Assuming you’re planning a DJ or Band for the evening’s entertainment for your wedding guests, then ensure they have enough space to set up their equipment, consider where you can visualise the wedding party dancing and see if there is room for the entertainment to set up.
Is taking pictures allowed? If you want to stage your first look or just snap some of the party portraits before the event starts, can you do the same and when and where in your venue? Can you visit there before the wedding?
Coordination. Once you’re happy you’ve found your perfect wedding venue, pay your deposit, get a receipt and ensure it’s fully booked for you on your wedding day. Try and take a few family members or close friends to see the venue before your big day. Not only does it make them feel more involved you can get their opinions and ideas. Make sure you visit the wedding venue a month or two before your big day to discuss with the management of the venue what you can and can’t do.
