What Size Wedding Venue Do I Need?

A lot of couples that have gone through the process of planning a wedding have come to realize that the venue you have your heart set on might not be the one that you finally end up using for your wedding. Do you ask why this is so? Well, when it comes to wedding venues, size matters! Before you start looking at venues, you need to have a rough idea of how many guests you will have. This will narrow down your choices and make it easier for you to choose a wedding venue.

At Clarence House, we have been in the wedding business for a long time and have hosted weddings of all sizes. So, if you are looking for a world-class wedding venue in Sydney, give us a ring. Below are some top tips to help you decide what size wedding venue to book for your wedding.

1. Draw up a provisional guest list

Before you start looking at spaces, you need to have a guest list written down. This does not have to be set in stone but it will help you gauge how many guests you will have on the day. After you have a tentative estimate of the number of guests that you will have at the wedding, you can then look for a wedding venue that will suit your wedding size.

2. Bigger is not always better

Yes, we previously stated that size matters when it comes to wedding venues, but to clarify that statement, bigger is not always better. You need to get a wedding venue that is the perfect match for your wedding size. Having few guests at a wedding venue that is too big will make it lose its intimacy and change the atmosphere of the wedding. So, it is important that you get a wedding venue that is just right for your wedding size.

3. Consider everything that will be involved

Are you planning to have children at your wedding? Will your entertainment include a live band or any act that will need space to set up? How formal is your wedding setup going to be? Having answers to all of these questions will help you decide on the amount of space that you will need to have. When you finally start viewing wedding spaces, you will have a better idea of how big space you need for your wedding needs to be.

When Should I Book My Wedding Venue?

The to-do list of planning a wedding can seem unending. It is also hard to know what to get done first and what you need to leave for later. While a lot of things on the list can be done at just about any time during the wedding planning process, there are a few that need to get done first so that everything else can fall into place. Setting a wedding budget, drafting a rough guest list, and booking a wedding venue will fall into that category.

Finding a venue that ticks all your boxes is not easy and at Clarence House, we are here to make that step easier for you. To that end, we have compiled a list of some of our top answers to questions that couples ask when they are deciding on the perfect wedding venue and the perfect timing for getting that done.

1. Is it ever too soon to start looking at wedding venues?

The simple answer is no. It is never too soon. You need to start looking around for wedding venues as soon as you get engaged, if not before the engagement. This is because the wedding venue business can be cutthroat and good wedding venues are booked years in advance. So, to give yourself a better chance of getting the perfect wedding venue, start looking for one as early as possible.

2. When should the final booking be made?

In general, the final booking must be settled 9-12 months before your wedding date. This is helpful in two ways. Firstly, you will be more likely to get the venue if you book it a year in advance, and secondly, having a booking done early will give you ample time to get everything else done on time. For very popular wedding venues, you may need to give yourself a better chance so booking the venue 18 months in advance is advised.

3. Can you get a venue last minute?

Yes, you can. But relying on getting a venue booked last minute means that you will probably have to make do with whatever is offered to you. This may mean that your wedding date will be shifted last minute, and you may need to alter your guest list to suit the wedding venue. Realistically, most people will not be fortunate enough to get an opening at the wedding venue that they really want if they wait until the last minute to book it.
