Venue Size

How many guests you’re planning to invite to your wedding versus the number of guests the facility can comfortably cater for. A crowded reception can be quite uncomfortable and if a venue is too large, it can affect the atmosphere and the overall look and feel. Put an initial guest list together before you start venue shopping so that you can make a better decision.

What about the drinks?

Cocktails and beverages are a big part of your wedding, so it’s important to find out whether you can bring your own alcohol and what the costs are, or if the venue will supply the drinks. Since you will also need a licensed bartender to serve alcohol, find out whether the venue can assist with this so that you can factor those costs into your final budget.

Preferred Vendors

You’re going to be working with several vendors in the time leading up to and on your wedding day. Many venues require you to use their specialty vendors, so find out about this before you make a booking. If they work with specific vendors, make sure that you’re happy with their experience, style, personality, and pricing. When a venue works with preferred vendors, it means they’re confident in their experience and ability to deliver, but it’s more important for you to choose vendors that fit in with your budget and overall preferences.

Final Verdict

There are many factors to consider when choosing the perfect wedding venue, but make sure that it’s a space that speaks to your personalities and style as a couple.
