choosing a wedding venue: set tables

Choosing an impeccable wedding venue is every couple’s dream. It’s choosing a wedding venue that sets the vibe and tone for your entire wedding experience. It’s also the place where you officially celebrate the beginning of your marriage. 

However, going through the process of actually reserving a venue takes a lot of consideration that goes beyond vibes and aesthetics. So if you are one of those who are searching for the perfect wedding venue, then this post is definitely for you.

So here are some top tips when choosing a wedding venue:

Choose a wedding venue that best suit your personality

All of us are unique and have different tastes in life. So work as a team with your partner so that you can both meet your requirements. Whether you go for a destination wedding or prefer to marry in a grand house, choose a wedding venue that best suits your personality. Also, remember to discuss your plans with your loved ones before making any big decisions. 

Budget for your wedding venue

When choosing a wedding venue, always remember your budget. Question whether you can afford it or not. It’s not like you have to show everyone how rich you are, is it? Don’t include venues on your list that you cannot afford because overspending can make a lot of difference to your quality of life after the wedding. 

Location matters when choosing

Evaluate the area your ideal venue is in. The wrong location can simply put your guests off attending your wedding. If your wedding ceremony and reception are to be held at two distinct sites, make certain that they are near to each other. If the two sites are more than two hours apart, that could make things confusing and hard for your guests. 

Think about the convenience of your venue too. If a considerable number of your guests are travelling from abroad, consider picking a venue that’s near an airport and is accessible. Also, keep in mind the overnight accommodation you’ll be using for at your venue or nearby.

Remember the lighting

It’s said that light can make or break an occasion. If your wedding is during the day, check whether the venue you chose has large windows or not. Windows will enable natural light to come in and will create a great ambiance. If your venue is lacking in natural light, make sure you have ample lighting to light up the space.

There are many types of lighting. Some favour shiny and open spaces, while others prefer more pensive venues. But in both cases, your venue shouldn’t be vague and dark. Your guests should be able to clearly see everything that is going on around them. For example, if any portion of your wedding venue is under the open sky in the evening, how will space be lit? These are all points you should deliberate when it comes to having the right lighting at your wedding. 

Final Words

These tips can help you choose the perfect wedding venue, regardless of where it is. What are your thoughts on choosing a wedding venue?
