Finding Wedding Venues Without Losing Sleep
When it comes to planning a wedding, there are plenty of things to stress over. Wedding venues are one of the largest decisions you will make when it comes to the big day. But if you don’t want your wedding to be filled with stress, forget about getting all worked up over the big and little details. Instead, take a practical approach in order to find wedding venues that will fit you in every way. Here are some ideas to help you out.
Draft A Budget Before You Do Anything Else
There’s no point in looking at any wedding venues until you have a budget in mind. Once you have a price for the venues, you can start looking around to see what fits. You don’t want to find something you love only to realize you can’t afford it later. Stick to your budget and you can automatically eliminate certain venues without even taking a look.
Create A Spreadsheet
To compare a number of venues quickly, create a quick spreadsheet with some basic information on it. You’ll place the name and location of the venue on the sheet. You’ll also put in their rates, their availability, and their website along with other details that interest you. As you research wedding venues and place them on the sheet, you can easily compare one to another and narrow down the list.
View Past Wedding Pictures
There may be some venues that don’t normally host weddings, but many will have had weddings in the past. Find pictures of those weddings so you can see how the wedding venues appear in the pictures. The venue will be the backdrop for most, if not all, of the pictures and you want to make sure it appeals to you.
Consider Capacity And Size Limits
You can also eliminate venues that don’t fit the amount of guests you want to have. Whether they are too large for your intimate list or too small for your larger number, you need a certain size to accommodate your needs. The wedding venues that fit your list just right will look much more attractive to you.
Choose Dates And Travel
If you have a particulate date in mind, you may be able to choose between two or more wedding venues based on their availability on that date. You will also want to think about travel. Are you having a destination wedding? Is there a better time for your family and friends to travel? Choose wedding venues that are convenient, beautiful, and within your budget.
Get Help From A Wedding Planner
If you don’t want to go through even this many details on your own, get help from a wedding planner who has been down this road many times before. They will have all of the best venues in mind and will be able to find something that suits your vision and your budget. The Dream Beach Wedding planners have packages available and wedding venues that are all beautiful in their own way.
