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.
Does the venue look the same at the time of year you want to marry? There are chances that you may have visited the venue during summers but your wedding date falls in November. You need to ensure that the venue has same looks, lighting and overall charm during winters as you have seen during summer. Research online or ask for some pictures of events in all seasons from your destination wedding planner to know what to expect on your wedding day.
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.
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!
