WHAT’S YOUR BUDGET
Determining your budget is important when looking for your venue. You don’t want to fall in love with a place only to realize that you won’t be able to afford it. Don’t rush into a contract without knowing exactly what you’re getting. Everything must be factored otherwise you may end up overspending.
LOOK INTO WEDDING PLANNERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS
When you search for your planner and photographer, make sure they have photos that you can see that will showcase their work. You’ll be able to make the right decision once you see their work.
CALL AROUND FOR VENUES AND DO A WALKTHROUGH
Once you have your guest list figured out, call around to your potential venues and narrow them down. Once you have them narrowed down, do a walk through so you can see how big space is and to see if it will accommodate you and your guest comfortably.
FACTOR IN THE VARIOUS SPACES YOU WILL NEED
If you’re planning on having a wedding that needs separate spaces such as; cocktail area, dancing, ceremony, dinner etc. make sure to factor that in your budget as well. You’ll save money if you hold everything together in one venue as opposed to paying for separate spaces elsewhere.
ASK FOR REFERRALS
Check around with friends and co-workers who have gotten married or may be getting married to see if they can refer a venue. The best advertisement is always word of mouth. If they have experienced dealing with certain venues, they will definitely give you the good the bad and the ugly.
KNOW WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE VENUE AND WHAT’S NOT
Make sure you know what’s included in your price before you sign anything. Make sure there aren’t any hidden fees. Have them draw up a contract that states what you’re paying for each service that you’re getting.
At the end of the day, it’s all about what the bride and the groom want. As long as you’re happy with the decision you make, your day should run smoothly.
