Tips For Finding The Best Wedding Venue

Your wedding venue is one of the most important decisions that you can make for your big day.

It is the setting for the celebration, it is one of the things that your guests are going to remember.

It is the backdrop to your photos, it is the place that you will remember.

This can lead to lots of worry about whether or not you have the right wedding venue in mind.

If you want to make sure that your wedding venue is the right one, here are some of the questions that you really should take the time to ask them.

What can I expect to be included in the price?

Venues are one of the most expensive part of your wedding day and take up a large chunk of your budget.

Therefore, if you want to make sure that you get the most for your money, then it is a good idea to try and find out the things that are included in the price of your venue.

This could be menu tastings, table linens, chair covers, lighting or perhaps a bridal suite for you to get ready in and then stay in that night.

The more that you are going to get for your money, the better for your budget.

Do we have exclusive hire of the venue?

We all like to feel special on our wedding day, like we are the only people on Earth.

Therefore, the idea of bumping into strangers whilst we are celebrating, isn’t one that we are going to like the sound of.

An important question to ask is whether or not your venue is offering exclusivity.

If not, you may need to get used to the idea that you are not going to be alone, if they are, then you definitely don’t need to worry.

Are there limits on guests?

The last thing that you are going to want is to find the ideal venue for you, only to learn that it simply cannot cater to the amount of guests that you want to invite.

It is important that you always ask on guest limitations, as this can have a huge impact on whether or not you go for that venue.

Is there anything we cannot do?

One thing that you will find with venues is that some are pretty lenient on the things that you can do in there, giving you freedom to express yourselves and make your wedding your own.

However, there are also venues that are much stricter and have a number of rules that you are going to need to keep in mind.

It is a good idea to ask your venue if there are things that you are not allowed to do, such as fireworks, live music or even allowing children at your wedding.

You would be surprised by the things that some venues would prefer that you didn’t do.

These are just some of the questions that you should ask your venue before you book in for your wedding day.

It is also important to find out more about their preferred suppliers as well as whether or not there are restrictions on when you can access the venue to set up.
