There are a lot of moving pieces when it comes to planning a wedding. One of the first decisions that every couple has to make is where to hold the wedding. There are a wide variety of wedding venues available, and each speak to the personality of the couple. Here are some aspects of a potential venue that you should consider when you are getting ready to make your decision.
Room to Move
One of the most important aspects of any wedding venue is having the space to move around. You want to be able to find a wedding venue that can comfortably fit all your guests while they are dining, dancing and mingling with other guests. A trick to remember when you are considering different sized venues is that you will need between ten and fifteen square feet per guest. This will allow you to find a venue that has just enough space for the wedding and reception.
Availability of Additional Services
Another aspect of every wedding venue is whether the venue itself offers additional services for your event. Many venues offer packages that include catering options, a DJ, a live band and decoration setup. While most of these additional services are optional, it is important to remember that venues with catering options do not always allow you to bring in your own food for safety reasons.
An Atmosphere Where You Feel Comfortable
Once you have all of the basic elements taken care of, it is important to stop and think about what type of atmosphere you want to have for your wedding. This is often more of a feeling than a calculated decision, but is important to make your day just how you want it. For example, if you don’t like the ocean, you wouldn’t choose a venue on beach, but if you love nature, you may decide that an outdoor venue is your best option. When you think about what you truly want, the right venue will come to mind. If you need more assistance in choosing a wedding venue, please contact us.
