There is no doubt that planning a wedding involves making a lot of important decisions. One of the most significant decisions is where you will hold the exciting event. The venue will set the entire tone for the wedding, making it important that you choose wisely. Here are five things that you should look for in an ideal wedding venue.
Budget: While it is never fun to think about the dollars and cents part of the wedding planning process, it is an indisputable fact that your budget will determine what you can consider for a venue. The good news is that Wedgewood Weddings offers a number of wedding venues in the Bay Area designed to suit a variety of budgets. From sprawling mansion estates to intimate beachside venues, you can customize your venue to deliver your dream wedding.
Guest List: Aside from your overall budget, your guest list will also heavily influence your choice of venue. Before shopping for venues, you need to have a rough idea of how many people will be in attendance. You also need to consider if your guests will be able to travel to the venue that you choose. While this is your day to enjoy, you also want to be considerate of the most important people in your life. In other words, do not be disappointed if you choose a destination wedding and not everyone can attend because of budget and logistical reasons.
Catering: Understanding what the venue can offer for catering services is another key component of choosing your wedding venue. While some venues are a one-stop shop, others provide more flexibility in catering options and may allow you to bring in off-site vendors. Knowing what type of arrangement you want ahead of time will help you to narrow down your venue options.
Logistics: In addition to the catering arm of the wedding planning process, you also need to think about miscellaneous logistics. For example, do you need a venue that can provide the appropriate tables, chairs, linens, and tableware? Or are you able to rent all of this separately? Does the venue have a wedding planner for you to lean on? Some couples prefer to handle the details themselves while others would rather find a venue that will do it all for them.
Vision: When considering wedding venues, be sure to ask yourself if each possibility aligns with the vision that you have of this special day. For example, if you are looking for a more intimate affair, you do not want to be looking at expansive ballrooms. Instead, you will want to focus your search on cozy settings on the beach or other similar venues that put out an intimate vibe. Conversely, if you are looking to throw a massive party, you will need the extra space to accommodate your guests so that you can pull off this vision.
These five tips will help to guide your decision-making process as you embark on choosing the perfect wedding venue for your needs.
