Conflicts may arise. Your groom might want one thing while you have imagined something entirely different. In order to avoid the awkwardness caused by a change of venue or last-minute rain check etc. you should take precautions and pick a venue that’s best suited for your needs. Here are some simple tips that will help you pick the perfect venue for your wedding.
The process of picking a venue can be long and tiring. An early beginning of your venue hunt can give you a head start and will help you select a good place well in time before your wedding. The longer you delay this the higher the chances of you not finding the perfect venue. Some places accept early booking and if its wedding season then you might not even find a venue and everything good will already have been booked.
Make a checklist of all the specifications you want in your wedding, for instance, the food, number of guests etc. If all the elements of your checklist are being checked by a certain venue, then you know that it’s the perfect place to have your wedding. If something is amiss and you’re the ultimate perfectionist, then it’s best to switch venues early on. But finding a venue that fulfills all your requirements is next to impossible which is why you should be willing to settle for a few things even if they don’t feel right.
Decide early on whether you want your wedding to be rustic, contemporary/modern or even Shakespeare, beauty and the beast or Jane Austen themed etc. then try to find a venue where you can have your dream wedding. Once you’ve decided on a theme mutually, the rest will be fairly easy and rest assured that the hard part is over.
You do not want to have monetary issues arising near your wedding. Proper money management is required before an important affair such as this. This will cause quite an inconvenience for both you as well as your guests. Allocate a budget to the venue and catering well in time. Once you have a budget, you will try to find a venue well within your monetary limitations.
