A wedding has a lot of expectations to live up to so choosing your wedding venue is crucial to delivering your dream day. But where do a bride and groom start? Below are some key questions for you to consider when putting together a short-list of wedding venues.
Choosing your wedding venue.
1.) Do you want the ceremony and the reception in the same place? Venues need a special licence to hold legally binding ceremonies. If the ceremony is at a different place than the reception ensure you consider how you and your guests will travel between the two.
2.) How many people will be attending? Can the venue cater for the number of guests? Are there adequate facilities for disabled guests, is there somewhere that elderly guests can relax. Are there appropriate facilities for any children such as high chairs or play areas.
3.) What is the theme of the wedding? Does it lend itself to the venue? Making sure your theme does not clash with the décor of the venue can help enormously.
4.) Have you considered where you will spend your first night as a married couple? Not all reception venues can act as a hotel too. If the venue you have chosen does not have accommodation then it is time to find nearby hotels that can cater for your guests.
