Factors To Consider When Selecting A Wedding Venue

Spread the love

Your wedding venue will define the quality and ambience of the wedding. The options are endless; hotels, churches, barns, castles, restaurants, the list goes on. The decision needs to be taken wisely so that the location is easy to approach by everyone; the guests, vendors etc. If you can’t make a proper decision, here are a few factors to consider.

  • Number of guests
    Before you look for venues, you need to prepare your guests list. Next, find places that can fit all your guests. Check online, call them up and ask the capacities. Don’t waste your time looking at places that cannot fit your guests. Also, some places might tell you they can fit 500 people, but when go see the place; you’ll realize that it’s so cramped up. Also, if you pick a large venue, your wedding will be boring and will look empty. So pick the correct size.
    • Location
      The venue should be accessible by all. If it is a far from town, it is highly likely that most guests would cancel. If many of your guests are flying in or driving in, pick a venue that is close to the airport and highway so that the guests and even vendors such as the wedding catering Sydney or stylist can easily reach. If you are holding a church wedding and the reception afterwards, be sure to pick them that are close by. You don’t need to be driving for two hours after the ceremony, just to get to the reception hall.
      • Facilities and services
        You need to ask the venue what services and facilities they will provide. For example, some venues provide gourmet catering Sydney while other don’t so you’ll have to bring them in separately. Be sure if you have to bring your own wines and alcohol. They may also not provide any service with food serving or cleaning up after the event so you’ll have to outsource that too. These are usually seen at informal venues such as barns or gardens. Hotels and other reception halls usually offer full services.
        • Style or theme
          It is a new trend among couples to go for wedding themes. If you are picking a theme, your venue needs to match it. For example, you can’t hold a sea themed wedding at a castle. Rather, you should hold it at a beach. A more formal wedding can be held at castles, hotels or stately homes while a relaxed wedding can be held at the beach, a barn or country restaurant.best-weddings
