Finalizing a wedding venue could be one of the most important decisions a couple makes in the planning process of their wedding. For many, the success in nailing the perfect wedding venue immediately translates into a successful wedding, but choosing a venue is often a big deal. It comes with a massive expense, it sets the wedding tone and is the fulcrum on which everything related to the wedding hinges. If you have attended some weddings yourself, you will be tempted to think that picking a perfect venue for the wedding is like a stroll in the park. Well, not quite.
With so many engagement proposals flaunting over the social media, it is easy to think that the entire planning process is an easy one. However, you have to consider a seemingly endless stream of things. A lot of decisions to make, compromise, consideration, hard work and research is necessary when it comes to choosing a wedding venue that flatters you and your guests, makes your big day’s pictures flawless and makes you feel content and happy.
From experts at Let’s Celebrate Events, we have few tips that can help to make the ride worthwhile.
Make sure that you have an estimate of the number of guests before you search for a wedding venue, or you have to be ready to scratch off some from your guest list. To avoid this disappointment, you can visit a few venues before time to be sure of which one would be ideal to accommodate all your guests.
For most couples, it is important that the location they choose is easy for their guests to visit. However, whether you decide to host your event close to your home, planning a destination wedding in another country, state or city, you have to think about the logistics of how everyone will get to your event site.
It is vital that you and your partner make this decision important. Would you spend 1/4th or half of your entire budget just on the venue? Be realistic and try to evaluate how much you are both willing to spend on the wedding venue. You can set realistic targets because generally, venues are not so cheap, especially if you choose beautiful ones. The cost could increase because of the location, capacity and other amenities the venue halls offer. Although you may end up with a wedding venue that costs below or above your budget, you can work with wedding reception decorators like us in Atlanta to give you a fixed and easy template to work with.

Weather can be a huge factor, especially if you are planning to have all or part of your event outdoors. Celebrating under the skies is surely a wonderful escapade, but once mercury rises in inland areas, you have to watch out! Tables with umbrellas or a canopy are essential for keeping you and your guests safe from the sun. You can ask your facility manager about the sun’s direction and intensity according to the time of the day and have your event planners organize the event accordingly.
When guests arrive, they may feel uncomfortable sitting under the sun during the ceremony. If your wedding is set for a daytime hour, you can include a small note on wedding cards regarding the location and accessories to wear including hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. If the weather takes a turn, you can have your event planners keep standby tents or tables with umbrellas in case of an emergency.
Choosing the wedding venue should not be a difficult task. With proper research and consultation with experts like us, you are sure to find the venue of your dreams within your budget.
