Now that you are engaged – yay – are you looking for the perfect wedding venue for your big day? Few choices will have a larger impact on the overall look and feel of your wedding day than where you choose to wed. Finding the right space can help set the tone for the decorations, the size of your wedding party, and even your dress. And we think that these important questions can help you find the just-right space for your dream wedding!
Do You Want Indoor, Outdoor Space or Both?
One of the first questions to ask yourselves, is whether you want an indoor or outdoor venue, or both? Many couples actually like the idea of a picturesque outdoor ceremony, followed by the comfort of air conditioning for their reception.
So look at wedding venues that provide both, if possible.
How Many People Will Be Coming?
Another obvious factor in finding the right venue is choosing one that can accommodate your target number of guests. You don’t have to wait until all your RSVP’s are in to start looking for a venue space. Instead, it is often best and simplest to find a venue that would comfortably fit all your invited guests, even knowing that all of them won’t be able to make it.
Basically, you want enough room that people can move comfortably, and with separate areas for eating, dancing, cake cutting, etc. Still, it is equally important to avoid having so much space that the venue feels empty, or even cold.
Once you have a rough guest list, in mind, you can start narrowing venue choices based on size.
