For most couples who are looking to get married, setting a date and selecting their wedding venue are some of the most exciting tasks that await them. These two actions will properly solidify all your hopes and dreams, and make the idea of your wedding day a firm reality. In addition to this, you have no idea how much fun awaits you when it comes to all the days you’ll spend touring potential wedding venues. This will be like taking romantic days out with your fiance that you’ll spend visiting beautiful locations and dining on complimentary finger foods while wedding staff pine over you. However, before all of this fun and excitement can start, you will need to think through a few things.
In this blog, we are going to list some of the most important things that both you and your spouse will need to consider and talk about before selecting a venue. While these particular conversations may not be all that exciting, they will allow you to set a strong foundation for your big day and to deal with potential issues that may come up before they actually become problems. As such, it’s important to at least think about these things early on. Trust me… your future self will thank you!
So let’s get started…
1. Budget for Wedding:
From the menu to the décor to the very cake itself, every single aspect of your wedding day will need to be paid for. This is especially significant when it comes to your wedding venue because for most couples, booking their venue is usually their largest expense. As such, it’s very important to consider how much money both you and your spouse have available for your wedding and set a realistic budget. This will help you narrow down potential venue options a whole lot faster by factoring in cost; in addition, it will also prevent you from overspending on your wedding, which usually winds most couples who do it up in debt.
2. Wedding Date:
Next, you’ll want to give a little thought to your wedding date. As a general rule of thumb, you’ll need to book your wedding venue around 12 months in advance. Most of the popular and attractive venues you’ll be considering will be fully booked for any dates before that. As such, it’s important to give a little thought to your expected wedding date before securing a venue, just so that you’ll be able to make the booking at the right time.
3. General Location for Wedding Venues:
And last but not least, you’ll want to consider your wedding location. Think about whether you’d like your wedding to be a destination wedding, or whether you’d prefer a location that’s a bit closer to home. Making this decision early on will certainly help direct you to the right venue.
