You, your fiancé, and your families will gather to celebrate your wedding day; you will walk down the aisle and recite your vows, and afterwards, you and your guests will gather for toasts, cake and of course, dancing! Your wedding venue will set the mood and atmosphere for memories that will last a lifetime, so choosing the perfect space to complement your wedding vision is an important decision.
Every venue has its own unique features, as well as pros and cons as to why it would or would not be a suitable fit for your wedding, which is why EMZARA has gathered some of the top tips to assist you in choosing yours. Keep these items in mind before deciding on your venue!
- Theme- From destination beach weddings to rustic-chic countryside nuptials, your wedding theme is a huge factor in your venue choice. Once you have a theme in mind, you can look for a venue that will best fit your vision and complement the whole day.
- Location- Choose a location that is special to you and your fiancé as well as convenient for your guests. Take into considerations the weather and travel arrangements before choosing a venue that does not offer any indoor accommodations or is far “off the beaten path.” Take into consideration the area around the venue and make sure it is easy to find for those guests who will be traveling from out of town or are not familiar with the area.
- Budget- Before even touring venues, have a number in mind that you are able to spend on your budget. Stay as close to your budget as possible or plan to cut something from another category later on. Know exactly what you will get with your venue fee and what other expenses will need to be accounted for. For example, does the venue include food and beverage service or can you being in your own vendors? Don’t forget to include tax and gratuity—these can add up to thousands of dollars and can be a very unwelcomed surprise if you haven’t budgeted for them.
