Think About What Venue that Fits Your Vision

One of the first things to consider when choosing the perfect venue for your wedding day is what kind of venue fits your vision. Most couples have a vague idea of what kind of wedding they want; whether that’s a beautiful, romantic country hotel wedding, a fun and adventurous outdoor wedding, or a small and cosy intimate marquee wedding. By thinking about what venue fits your vision, you can eliminate venues that aren’t right for you and make a shortlist of potentials for your venue.

Pick a Location and Date

One of the other most important things to consider is the location of your venue – you want it to be somewhere that your guests can easily travel to and stay at. Think about where your guests are coming from and where it will suit them and you best. You then need to think about what dates work best for you and your partner, and for your potential guests. By deciding when you want to get married, you will be able to start the planning process.

Explore What Different Venues Can Offer You

Once you have chosen what kind of venue you want, a suitable location, and potential dates then you can start exploring what different venues can offer you. What do you want to be included in your wedding day? Do you want your wedding to be at a location where your guests can stay, do you want the venue to be able to officially marry you, what do you want the scenery around the venue to look like? Once you start taking a further look at potential venues and seeing what they can offer you and your partner, you can pick the perfect location for your big, special day.
