Ok, you’ve found ‘the one’. Now for the most important next step, where to hold the big day? The venue. To start, choose your top 5 dream venues.
There are so many factors to consider. Firstly, your budget. Sit down together and have a realistic chat. Think about your guest list. How much per head are you thinking? What is included in the venues packages? Is there parking? Can you have the ceremony in the same area or close by?
When you have this, contact the top 3 on your list and determine which venues meet your needs and have your date available. Then schedule a visit of the venues on your list.
Finding the right venue seems daunting with all of the details described above, but it doesn’t have to be. Great venues have amazing co-ordinators that will help you with all the details.
Did you know that on average, 40-50 percent of your budget will go to the wedding reception? That’s a fair chunk of change so make sure you do your research.
