How to Choose a Wedding Venue

For many couples, picking the right wedding venue that will be easy for their guests is a big deal. Settling on a venue is an expensive affair. It sets the tinge of the wedding. A wedding venue is a meat in a wedding sandwich but many are frustrated with the reservation process. Below are a few tips that will help you choose a wedding venue that is right for you.


There are a few ways to go with choosing the location, you can try and choose the most beautiful wedding destinations so that the ceremony and photos are amazing, or you can choose a venue that suits logistically to make it easy for the majority of people to make it (after all, it is important that your closest family and friends can all come). You can also make the decision based off a destination of importance for you as a couple, maybe you might take it to a town where you grew up or met.

Number of Guests

The number of guests you foresee will help you to determine how big a venue you will need. It is, therefore, critical that you come up with an estimate of your number of guests so that you can plan your budget on time.



Weather is a weighty factor you need to consider if you’re planning to have a garden wedding ceremony. The weather is less authentic if you’re planning an outdoor event and may turn cold or wet. To avoid embarrassment, have an alternative to either a tent or an inside space in case the skies open up. In essence, consider the season which you are planning your ceremony.

Special Requirements

Some places have strict rules and regulations. There are some locations which prohibit smoking and alcohol. If your guests drink and smoke, pick that location which doesn’t restrict the two. If dancing and a big band are censorious, limit yourself to those places that can lodge them. Think about children, disabled guests and seniors too. Identify all special factors that are relevant to your event prior the material day.

If you’re going to pick 1 element of a wedding that has the biggest impact on how ‘good’ the day is, the wedding venue would have to be right up there as the most important, so don’t stuff it up… 🙂
