Plan to Perfection – How to Prepare for Your Wedding Venue Search

Choosing your wedding venue is one of the most important decisions you are likely to make in the entire wedding planning process. Not only will the venue be the place where you spend your first hours as a married couple, the style of venue you choose will say a lot about you and your husband or wife. But where do you start when it comes to picking wedding venue that is ultimately ‘you’?
Before you rush out to view a selection of wedding venues, sit down as a couple and decide what you want from your venue. The key to choosing a wedding venue that you both love is communication during these initial stages, and having a clear idea of what you are looking for from the outset can ultimately avoid any wedding planning drama.
Discuss whether you want to look at outdoor wedding venues or perhaps you want to draw inspiration from quirky weddings you’ve seen on the pages of magazines or your favourite bridal blog. Aim to have a vision of your big day and then start your search to find a setting that will complement this.
Next consider details like budget and location, this will narrow down your search dramatically leading to a shortlist of wedding venues that are suitable. Keep the location of your reception venue in close proximity to the place where you are getting married, whether that be in a church or at your local registry office. If the venue is a little further afield than you anticipated, then make sure you add arranging transport or getting quotes for overnight accommodation for your guests to your wedding ‘to do’ list. When it comes to your budget, make sure you focus on looking for venues that are within your means to avoid disappointment. If you have already made this faux pas and have fell in love with a pricey venue, consider choosing a mid-week wedding date to cut costs or a more affordable catering option like a hog roast or BBQ.
The size of your wedding party will also be a major factor in choosing the perfect setting for your big day. Look at wedding venues that will cater for your desired number of guests, especially if you are having an intimate wedding

or a particularly extravagant one! Outdoor wedding venues that provide marquees or quirkier circus-style tents are a popular choice for weddings with a rather large guest list.
Planning to perfection when choosing your reception venue is essential for the stress-free decision making that makes wedding planning that bit easier. There are so many factors to consider when choosing the setting for your big day but with some preparation you can focus on the task in hand and move onto more important decisions – like choosing your dream dress!
