Choosing Your Wedding Venue

Choosing your wedding venue is one of the most important decisions you will make about your wedding day. Your wedding venue will say everything about your wedding, from the theme to the style. Finding the one that matches your vision for your magical day is a process that involves a little checklist.

A Unique Wedding Venue

Every wedding venue is unique. Beyond the differences found in location and setting, each venue will have a different style. Style is not just the architecture of the building. There is an observable difference in the style of furnishings, designs and decor among venues. An all-inclusive wedding venue with an-house design team is able to transform the space into your unique theme and design. It is important to tour a wedding venue, meet with designers and ask questions about the design options and services that make the wedding venue unique. If you are planning a themed wedding or one with unique customs, make sure your venue can accommodate your needs.


Ceremony Space at a Wedding Venue

Many couples choose a reception in a ballroom, but the ceremony space can be anywhere. An all-inclusive wedding venue will have a ceremony space dedicated to the design, theme and decor for your nuptials. Designing your ceremony space is as equally important as your reception, and some might argue that it is more. It is important to work with a wedding venue that can customize the designs of your ceremony space.


Wedding Venue with Your Date

Once you have fallen in love with your wedding venue, you will need to book your date. We do not just grab our wedding date out of a bag of fate, and if you are leaving it all to fate, you won’t struggle here. It is extremely important to coordinate your magical date with the wedding venue early. The most sought after wedding venues might have a little competition with scheduling. If not done in advance, it could mean hosting your wedding day on another date close to your magical date. It can be a good idea to be a little flexible with your scheduling. This won’t work for everyone, especially those that are attempting to host their wedding on an anniversary of a significant date. Most couples book a date with their wedding venue about a year in advance.
