The Venue

                                  A Wonderful wedding starts with choosing the right venue.  It is the most important piece in your wedding planning puzzle that will help bring all your ideas together.  However, to be able to choose the right venue you have to determine several issues.

First of all, figure out what style of wedding you’d like to have. Are you looking for on-site accommodation and facilities or home wedding /marquee or restaurant venues or boat or private venues?  You’ll also need to decide if you want to have your ceremony and reception in the same place, or if you want an all-in-one wedding venue.  Is it going to be in-door or outdoor?  If you are looking for outdoor party, you should know about the backup plans or space if any weather changes happened suddenly.

So deciding, as a couple, on a wedding feel prior to visiting potential venues prevents you from being swept away by a place because it looks great.  Moreover, take into consideration while choosing the style, whether you need a full service venue or not, because if it is not a full service you will be responsible for booking all of the vendors for the wedding day.

On the other hand, the key factor in choosing the right venue is the number of invitees.  You shouldn’t choose among wedding venues until you’ve decided how many guests you’re hosting and your budget and make sure the venue will accommodate this number smoothly.  The space may look tremendous and great when it’s empty, but wedding essentials such as tables, chairs, buffet, DJ setup and the dance floor can occupy a lot of space. Accordingly, make sure there are enough space where guests can eat, drink, talk, and dance.

Also, note if there are any obstructions in the room such as columns, which may block people’s views of something in the venue such as the dance floor or the cake table.  It is important to keep the intimate feeling, which will not be guaranteed if the space is too big or too small.

If you’re considering a certain theme and special colors for your party, you have to take care of the venue walls, carpets, chairs, and curtains colors to avoid conflict with your wedding theme.

More important, the light and sound are crucial elements in making the mood of your guests.  Accordingly, ensure the lighting can be controlled for the entrance, dinner, and dancing. If your wedding ceremony will be during the day, find out if your venue has plenty of windows. For the sound, check the venue floor, tile or wood or has a thick carpet, to be able to tailor your music and acoustic conditions, whether to amplify sounds muffle them.

Take into account any special accommodations for your guests and proper accessibility for people with disabilities.  Make sure the site is near a parking lot or garage.  If parking is a problem, look for other ways to get everyone to the party, such as hiring people to facilitate the parking for your guests.   Be sure to ask about available security at your site to keep your privacy.

Finally, visiting the venue, on a party at the time of your wedding, will be held with your wedding planner is important before you make a decision.  When visiting venues, pay attention to the little details, like routes, bathrooms and power sockets. Check the space for the bride and groom to change and relax and figure out where you will take photographs.  Check menus and taste food.

Always remember that exceptional locations with a view are always a plus.
