Some Useful Tips to Choose the Perfect Wedding Venue

When it comes to wedding planning all aspects are secondary or optional whereas there’s one thing that you can’t be lenient about that is: a venue. Your venue sets the right mood for the wedding as it’s the place where all your friends and family gather for the celebration(Useful Tips)!

But finding the perfect venues is not easy! You have so many options to choose from such as banquet halls, farmhouses, wedding resorts, a palace or a fort, beachside resorts and so on. To make it a little easy for you… here are some tips that will help you find your dream wedding venue.

Discuss with your planner first 

Having a pro by your side while planning your wedding will always be beneficial for you. Planners being so experienced are familiar with all the available spaces matching your taste and budget, which will help you look at the better options first. Also, certain spaces can be transformed as per your vision and your planners are the best people to be aware of the space’s calibre. If there’s a creative way to make some venue unique or a quirk or even if there are chances that your vision is hard to accomplish, your planner will also know that.

Go for something that matches your vision

We know it’s obvious, but still, you should seek out venues that fit the aesthetic you have in mind. For instance, you can go to any of the popular banquet halls in Delhi if you want a modern fixed setup. On the other hand, if you want something closer to nature kind of feel then you should go for a farmhouse or a lawn. We would recommend going for something that enhances your theme.

Keeping your guest count in mind

Again, a very important thing to keep in mind! You should know beforehand how many guests you’re expecting to invite before you go looking at venues. Trust us, this will save you from headaches and heartaches down the road. Going for a venue that is too small for your gathering can be stressful!  

Don’t forget your budget

When we talk about venue cost then it doesn’t mean just the rental price of that space. There are so many other things that are involved in the cost. Usually, the hotel venues have in-house catering, therefore they will charge a price-per-plate. Also, if you add on the décor as well as floral arrangements then it will also drive the cost up. You should know how much your total budget is, as well as the approximate cost of the execution of your design.

If these additions blow your budget of other things then you’ll either need to scale back your design or look at more affordable spaces. Always keep in mind that you need to break down your overall budget by category and then prioritise more funds for vendors that are a higher priority. If you are selecting your venue first, and then realize it’s more than you should have allocated, then it will be a battle for you while planning other vendors.

Focus on your guests’ experience

All that effort of planning and executing is not just for the couple. It also involves giving your guests a memorable experience too. If you have a large number of guests coming out-of-town guests or you are planning on having a destination wedding, then you should look for a venue that has a good number of comfortable rooms. Besides that give attention to their comfort within the venue, too.

Discuss the inclusions 

People usually look for convenience! If you are also one of them then you must be looking for venues that offer full-service that includes everything or if you want things your way then you need to look for a venue that lets you bring in your vendors and décor. In the case of an all-inclusive venue, be sure to price everything out. A venue that offers its tables, chairs, and linens might cost more upfront than a venue where you need to rent your own. You should get an estimate from a rental company to see the price comparison and then make the decision accordingly! Also, if you’re working with a venue that has in-house catering with a food and beverage minimum, be sure to include the tax and the gratuity in your calculations.

Last, but not the least… stay true to yourselves

With the impact of Pinterest weddings, there are a lot of couples who choose venues based on the style of a wedding they fell in love with online. It’s good to look for inspiration but at the same time it’s important to give a thought to the authenticity of you two as a couple, and then go for a space as well as the design that represents you! Also, there are chances that a venue might have looked gorgeous with a different theme or design scheme, but it may not be the perfect canvas for your or your vision. So be careful what you go for!

We hope this helps!
