We LOVE a good wedding venue! The venue you select sets the stage for your big day. Finding the perfect venue helps to bring your dream and vision to life. We love that you can really have your wedding any place you dream of! 

Thinking about the beach? Maybe the countryside? A beautiful winery? Historic mansion? A venue overlooking the ocean? There is a venue for everyone no matter the size or style of your wedding. What is even greater is that the amount of wedding venue options is endless!! Are you a note taker? Does writing things down help you plan a bit better? When selecting your perfect wedding venue, we encourage you to take the time to write down your hopes, dreams, wishes, worries, visions and more! This key part of your wedding sets the vibe for the entire event so make sure you write out all of your thoughts.

Dive in with us this week as we talk through helpful tips on selecting the perfect wedding venue for you and your partner! 

Let’s Dive In!

Here are 7 helpful questions to ask yourself when selecting the perfect wedding venue! 

  1. What Am I Envisioning For My Wedding Day?

Where do you see yourself getting married? What does that look like? It’s important that you make sure your selected venue will help bring your vision to life. Aligning your vision with the setting will ensure a nicely balanced event from start to finish!

  1. Where Do I Want To Get Married?

Are you wanting to get married in your hometown? Maybe countryside or in a beautiful California mansion? Are you interested in having a destination wedding? Asking yourself these questions will help you narrow down your top picks and favorites! 

  1. What Is My Wedding Style? Will My Style Align Well With The Venue?

Honey, no clashing here. Not today, not now, not ever. You wouldn’t throw a beach themed wedding at a countryside winery so let’s stay away from venues that would clash with your style. You’ll look back on your wedding photos and be glad you found a venue that complemented your style! We promise! 

  1. Will The Venue I’m Looking Into Fit My Budget?

It’s important to discuss your budget and stick to it very early on. Don’t get your hopes up and start shopping around venues that are way out of your price point. There is no joy in falling in love with a venue only to learn it is well above your set budget. Do your research and invest your time and venues that are realistic. This will save you lots of heartache. 

  1. Does The Size Of The Venue Work With The Amount Of Guests That Will Attend?

Even though your wedding is months away you should at least have some type of a ballpark number of how many guests you plan on inviting. It’s helpful to make sure the venue you select can hold the guest capacity you are targeting. Don’t go through all of the work to plan and book your venue only to later find out you have far surpassed the capacity. 

  1. Does The Wedding Venue Have Good Reviews?

Take some time and read through reviews, check out the venue’s website and look at all the photos. Schedule some time in your calendar to go and view these venues in person with your partner. It’s important that you visit these venues and walk through them all. Take time to talk with the event managers, ask them your questions, get a feel for the vibe and figure out if it’s a good fit for you. 

7. Have I Created A Mood Board?

Do you have a Pinterest account? It’s not too late to create one! From your wedding dress, to your color palette, from your wedding flowers to your wedding venue, Pinterest has it all! Take some time to look around at different pins, get a feel for the mood, style and vibe you are going for and create a mood board via Pinterest. This is a great place to get your thoughts and ideas out in front of you so take advantage of all the great benefits this app brings!
