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.
