Planning a wedding can be such a fun and exciting time, but also overwhelming. There are so many details to coordinate, and making sure everything is just right can be a big task. One of the first and most important elements you’ll want to decide is where your wedding will take place. The venue can play a big role in the overall experience of your wedding. Choosing a venue that accommodates your guests, is in a convenient location, and offers a wonderful experience while staying true to your visions for your day is key. However, this is easier said than done, right? With so many venues to choose from and different amenities that each provides, it can be difficult to choose. Here are a few tips to help you stay on task and find the perfect venue for your big day. 

Know Your Guest List

First, you’ll need to determine your guest list, or at least have an approximate number in mind. This could have a big impact on the venues you’re able to choose from. If you choose the venue first and end up getting more “Yes” RSVPs than expected, you may find yourself in a sticky situation. Deciding your guest list count beforehand and sticking to it will save you headaches later on, and help you narrow down your search in finding the perfect wedding venue.

Location is Key 

In addition to your guest list, the location is among the top factors that’ll play a big role in where you ultimately decide to host your wedding. It’s important to choose a central location that is convenient for your guests or offers accommodations nearby for those that will be traveling. It’s always a nice gesture to include hotel recommendations for your guests coming from out of town, and have arrangements for them to get to and from the ceremony. 

Consider the Experience

It’s all about the ambiance! Think about how the experience that the venue you choose will offer not only your guests but also you and your partner. Do you want it to be a small, intimate setting where your guests can feel like they’re a part of the ceremony? Or do you dream of a big wedding, with all of your friends, family, coworkers, and acquaintances there to witness your big day? Keeping these thoughts in mind, while considering the overall look and feel of the space will help you to find a space that aligns with the experience that you want to create. 

Stay True to Your Visions  

Your wedding should reflect you and your partner’s relationship, and what you value. It’s easy to get caught up in the stress of wedding planning, but remember to stay true to yourselves and your initial visions! After all, it’s your big day, and it should be exactly how you want it, down to every last detail!
