Choosing Your Perfect Wedding Venue

Size is an issue

Whoever says size doesn’t matter is wrong. If you have sixty people attended your wedding reception, you need to get a wedding day venue that accommodates around 60-80 individuals. Why get a great venue that holds 150 individuals then not even half fill it, your wedding guests is rattling around inside, plus all atmosphere is sacrificed.

Assuming you are planning a DJ or even Band for the evening’s entertainment for your wedding guests, ensure they have enough space to set up the equipment of theirs, take into account where you can visualise the wedding party dance and find out if there’s storage for the entertainment to create.

in case a huge wedding breakfast at the venue is being planned by you, speak to your wedding venue and also ask how all of the tables will be arranged by them, they may say they can easily accommodate plenty of wedding guests but if they’re pushing tables down the corridor, your guests will feel left out.

In short, when in search of the perfect venue, ensure the venue is visited by you, do not just choose it from photos or even the word wide web, as well as strive to visualise your wedding party being held there.


Though only if you prefer, lets face facts, the venue and reception could be the best expensive part of your big day.

Determined by what the personal choice of yours is, whether it is a grand Victorian house you’ve rented for the day, or perhaps the neighborhood church hall, ensure your budget is set by you and stick to it.

Large wedding venues in some cases have set packages, which include one fee per head for their meal, wine, toast drink and evening buffet. All venues will present you with a price list before you book anything, check if there is a cost for hiring the venue, in addition to the consumables. Some venues charge less for Sunday – Thursday marriage ceremonies, whilst Fridays and Saturdays are more popular wedding days and is likely to cost more.

In case you book a wedding day venue that does not arrange your catering needs or even is basically a hall hire, consider the expenses of what else you might need making it an ideal venue, food, drinks, crockery & cutlery, DJ, decorations, service staff – they each amount to something big.

Spend time working out the figures of yours and decide what suits the wedding budget of yours.


Once you are happy you’ve found your perfect wedding venue, pay the deposit of yours, purchase a receipt and ensure it’s completely booked for you on your wedding day.

Try and take a couple of family or even close friends to see the venue before the big day of yours. Not only will it make them feel much more involved you can get their ideas and opinions.

Make sure you pay a visit to the wedding day venue a month or two before your big day to go over with the control of the venue what you are able to and can’t do.

Learn the times you are able to access it from, what precious time you have to be away by. Speak to the caterers and guarantee the dining that you need is properly organised. Check what details the wedding day venue is going to provide, and what you are expected to organise. Items like a large silver knife or cake stand, if these are not supplied by the wedding venue, you will need to organise them yourself of experience an awkward time when it concerns cutting the wedding cake of yours. Find out if your wedding ceremony DJ have it to create, all the small things require consideration, produce a list and ask most of the questions of your wedding venue.

Book Early

Finally, as soon as you have spent time looking for your perfect wedding venue, and you’re happy you have discovered your dream day, the majority of places get booked well ahead of time, usually years in advance. Do not get dissatisfied, reserve your wedding venue early on, or perhaps at least get yourself pencilled in their diary and ask they call you immediately if any other wedding couple enquires about YOUR date!
