Follow this checklist and you can find your ideal wedding venue :

Guest List

First, think about the number of people you want to invite to the wedding. If you’re having a small, intimate gathering, a backyard wedding, or a ceremony by the local lake could be fitting.

For a larger wedding, look into one of the largest churches in your city, or consider an upscale hotel or convention center to accommodate all your friends and family.

Decide Budget

You’ll also need to know how to choose wedding venue options based on the cost of the entire wedding and reception. If you know you want an elaborate dress or upscale food for the reception, an outdoor wedding, or a ceremony at a friend or family member’s home may be ideal.

 

This way, you can have the wedding you want without spending a fortune. If the wedding decor is a huge priority for you, choose a space that is a “blank canvas” so you can customize the venue to showcase the colors and items that mean the most to you on your wedding day.

Take all your preferences into account when making the final decisions about your wedding venue as well. If you’re having a spring or summer wedding, a ceremony at a botanical garden can make for beautiful pictures, and you could even save on floral decor, because the venue will be naturally decorated.

 

Famous or Peaceful Venue

If you’d like to have the wedding in a place that will also provide lodging for your loved ones who are traveling from out of town, a boutique hotel or bed and breakfast makes for a creative wedding space.

No matter what your preferences and dreams are for your big day, be sure to book the wedding venue as soon as you can. This can help you save money (it is usually more expensive to book at the last minute), and allows you to check one more thing off your list as you’re completing the wedding planning process.

Visit Several Times

Be sure to visit the venue several times before the wedding as well, so you’ll know where the decorations will be placed and where the wedding party will stand. The more familiar you are with the space, the more at ease you’ll feel when it’s time to walk down the aisle and exchange vows with the love of your life.

You’re undoubtedly excited about your wedding. Since you’re in planning mode, one of the things you’re likely most concerned about is how to choose wedding venue selections that can make your special day especially memorable. Before you search around the city for the perfect place to exchange vows, here are a few things to consider.
