Most people hope that they’re only going to get married once, so finding the ideal venue can be quite difficult and somewhat of a challenge at first. Finding a great wedding venue isn’t something that you’re supposed to be experienced at, and if you’re not keen on the idea of hiring a wedding planner to help you out, you will find yourself with a long task list and many visits to undertake. Here are some of the ways that you can ensure you find the perfect place to have your wedding.
Know how many people you’re inviting
One of the worst things is feeling like you’ve hired a venue that is too large or too small. The feeling of being cramped at a wedding can ruin the whole day for everybody, and the feeling that you’re got lots of empty unused space can be just as bad. Even if you haven’t had all the RSVPs yet, you should have a good idea of who is going to be coming. Your immediate family and extended family members are almost a certainty, and many of your close friends wouldn’t miss the day either.
Choose somewhere you like
It’s the most important thing that you like the venue you choose. Whether you’re looking for ballroom hire Melbourne to have a classy wedding with plenty of space for dancing and having fun, or you want to get married on the coast somewhere with a beautiful beach and plenty of sand, there are many options to consider and at the end of the day you need to think about what you like and where you would like to be celebrating the big day.
Check the availability
If you see something online that you think will be perfect for your wedding day, phone the venue and check the availability before you arrange to go and visit it. If you fall in love with the venue only to find out that there isn’t any availability for the date you’re getting married, you’ll always be disappointed and it could lead to wanting to change the date and then having disagreements with people who might not be able to make the new date. Unless you don’t have a date set and you are very flexible, it’s always a good idea to check which venues are available for the date you need and then take it from there.
Pay a visit to your favourites
When you’ve made a short list of all the places that you think would be ideal for getting married, pay them a visit and take your time walking around and thinking about whether you could actually get married and celebrate the day at this particular venue. It’s a good idea to take along your future spouse as well as a friend or family member who can help you to decide which venue would be the best. Not only will they have some ideas to share but also they will always spot things you might miss and will be able to discuss it in further detail with you after the wedding venue visits.
