There is so much to think about on your wedding day! So many details that need to be analysed. It is easy to overlook some and underestimate others. There is one, however, that should not be underestimated or overlooked: the wedding venue.
In fact, one of the most important decisions that an engaged couple must make about their wedding day is the wedding venue.
Why The Wedding Venue Is So Important
The wedding venue is extremely important because it will affect almost all other wedding details. The most noticeable of which is the wedding theme.
For example, if your choice of wedding venue is a rustic country barn you won’t want a fairytale wedding dress with stiletto heels for the bride. If you choose a wedding venue on a beachfront property your attire and theme will go in a whole other direction.
Not only the wedding attire is affected, but also the whole mood of the wedding, the music that is chosen, the food and drinks that are offered and the list goes on and on.
We hope that this article will help you to choose your wedding venue wisely. In order to help you, we will examine some of the most common mistakes related to wedding venues.
Very Common Mistakes Regarding Wedding Venues
- Don’t make a decision online. Don’t decide on a wedding venue without going there and seeing it in person. Photography can do a lot to mask problems and allude to an ambience that just isn’t there in person. Always go in person to the venue in order to get a feel for what it is really like.
- Don’t forget to check the opening and closing times. Both of these are big things to consider. For example, some wedding venues don’t open until noon or later. You probably will have flowers, catering, and music to set up. It is important that you know when they can arrive and start getting things ready.
It is equally important to understand when they close. You don’t want to have to shut the party down early because of noise ordinances or because the fine print in your contract stipulates that the party must end by 10:00.
- Don’t forget to check the bathrooms. This may not seem important, but can make a big difference to the guests! Make sure that the bathrooms are decent, clean, easy to find, easy to access, and make sure there are enough for the number of guests that you will have.
- Don’t forget to calculate parking. Some amazing venues surprisingly don’t have much parking. Having to park afar or drive with a shuttle service could put a damper on the occasion for the guests.
Make sure that you ask lots of questions before signing the contract. This way you can avoid major stress and complications on your wedding day.
The venue is an important choice, one that should not be taken lightly. So choose wisely and enjoy your special day!
