How to pick the right venue for your wedding


Planning a wedding can be stressful but can also be a lot of fun. One of the most important decisions you'll make is picking the right venue. Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect spot for your big day.

Find the right style

You probably have a specific style in mind for your wedding. Maybe you want an old-fashioned outdoor garden party, or maybe you prefer a more contemporary indoor event with lots of lights and mirrors. Keep your theme in mind when choosing the right venue.

Find the right location

Finding the right location is also essential. Where do you want to get married - at home, in a nearby garden, or in another country? Will your guests need passports to attend, or is international travel too expensive? If you live far from most of your guests, having the wedding somewhere central might be the best bet.

Also, decide when and how long you want to have the wedding. If you're having a huge party with lots of friends and family, try finding a venue that can hold a large number of people. You might also consider having multiple events over the weekend if you want your guests to stay for an extended period of time.

Don't stretch your budget to fit an expensive place into it. Make sure you're comfortable with the price for each venue you consider. If one is too expensive, keep looking until you find something that's right for your wedding day and your budget.

Find the right facilities

What do you want your guests to be able to do at the wedding? Some venues have a pool or a large garden where they can roam freely. Others might even provide overnight accommodations for your friends and family. When choosing a location, think about what it would be like if most of your guests stayed there for an extended period of time.

Look for quality

As with anything, you get what you pay for. Don't try to save money by picking a venue that's not in great condition or isn't known for good service. If you want your wedding day to be memorable, it's worth spending a little extra on the perfect place.

If quality is something you value, check out The Society Room. This is one of the best spaces on the market at the moment.

Look for reliability

Not only should the venue be in good condition, but it also needs to be reliable. If you pick a location that's known for falling through with its plans and not really delivering on what they promise, your wedding day could turn into a disaster.

Look for good communication 

It's important to find a venue that can communicate well. If they don't get back to you in time, it could impact your planning process or even lead to problems on the big day.

Be sure to ask lots of questions when scoping out possible locations and look at their past work so you know what you're getting into.
