Planning your wedding can be extraordinarily stressful, and the biggest choice you have to make is where will you have your wedding ceremony? There are many choices including an outdoor wedding, a chapel, a covered veranda, and reception halls. There are advantages and disadvantage to each. The pros and cons will need to be weighed carefully before a decision is made.
Outdoor venues have the advantages of natural beauty. Rose gardens, trees and cobblestone paths are lovely. The downside is the weather. It’s unpredictable and you will need a backup plan in case of wind, rain, or snow.
Chapels offer the connection to rich tradition and are wonderful for those couples where faith is important. Lighting and audio are already in place too. The disadvantages are two-fold. Some book up years in advance and some require couples meet certain requirements, like premarital counseling, before agreeing to host the event.
Covered verandas are awesome spaces for smaller weddings. They offer beautiful backdrops for pictures and are affordable. The downside is they can be hot if the wedding is in the summer or in a warm climate and there isn’t much space for dancing.
Reception halls offer great amenities and are solutions for any time of year in any weather. Many come with catering kitchens and dance floors. The disadvantages are in cost and décor. Reception halls are often more expensive than other options. The space can be plain, so you will need to decorate.
While each of these options have both advantages and disadvantages, all have proven to be wonderful ways to celebrate the biggest day of a couple’s life. The final decision of a space depends largely on the number of guests, reception activities, and what you like as a backdrop for pictures. Please visit us for more information by clicking here.
