Other popular choices included marrying in a restaurant, on a beach or at a golf course. Whatever you want for your wedding celebration, there are a few things to consider before making a final decision.
The Wedding Budget
Your wedding venue is likely to be your biggest expense, so work out how much you have to spend and stick to it. There are gorgeous wedding venues available for budgets big and small. Just remember you can make great savings in some areas so compromising is key, think about the number of guests you actually need, reducing numbers can help you afford the venue of your dreams.
If you have family and friends across the country or even across the world, choosing the right wedding venue location will be key to making sure everyone can attend. Always think about elderly relatives first who may not be able to travel far. Also, check there are good local transport connections if you have a lot of guests travelling a long way. Accommodation at the venue can also be important especially for large amounts of guests especially if they have travelled a large distance to share your wedding day.
Who Makes The Wedding List?
You’ll need to have a rough idea of the number of people on your guest list before you start venue hunting. There’s no point looking at intimate venues for 50 when you plan to invite 200!
Start with family and friends who you absolutely must have at your wedding day and make sure any venue you like can accommodate them. Then consider who you actually see on a regular basis in your circle of friends and family, if you haven't seen someone for a few years then consider should they get an invite? Sometime friends and family can move a large distance away so this may explain why you do not see them regularly, in this case you may want to invite them. Remember by limiting the numbers you will reduce the cost to your budget and have more in the pot to spend on room decor, wedding cars and not forgetting your wedding photographer / wedding videographer.
See Your Wedding Venues
Go and see your top venue choices two or three times, ideally at different times of the day, before you make a decision. You want to make sure they look as fabulous in the daytime as they do lit up at night. Getting a feel for your wedding venue and the team that will help host your wedding day is key! Also, there’s no rush to sign on the dotted line. This decision will affect almost everything else on your big day, so make sure it’s right.
