One of the most important decisions you’ll need to make early on in the wedding planning process is where you’ll be hosting your big day. While many people dream of destination weddings, there are so many different benefits to having a local ceremony and reception.

Choosing a Local Wedding

Let’s discuss a few different reasons why you should consider a local wedding. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us and an experienced member of our team will be happy to provide you with answers!

Coordinating Vendors

Easy and simple access to vendors is one of the top reasons why many people choose to have a local wedding. Whether you’re trying cake flavors to picking out your bouquet arrangement, having to travel to speak with vendors can be exhausting, time-consuming, and expensive.


By choosing a local wedding, you can pick vendors in the area that understand exactly what you’re looking for. It’ll also be easier to coordinate with them in the time leading up to your big day.

Guest Convenience

If you have lots of friends and family in the area, they’ll definitely be thankful you chose a local venue. Being able to have everyone with you on your big day is important and choosing a convenient location is one of the best ways to make that happen.


If you have lots of guests with young kids, traveling can be complicated for those families. Picking a local wedding is an excellent way to make sure that everyone can be included during your big day.


If you have a tight wedding budget, then a local venue is most likely going to be the best option for you. Many people don’t realize the costs that are associated with hosting a nonlocal wedding, as it often requires a significant amount of travel to put together your big day.


Finding housing for your bridal party can be stressful when you don’t choose a local wedding. Not only can it be complicated if you have a larger bridal party, but it can also get expensive quickly. By hosting a local wedding, you’ll need to coordinate housing for fewer people and can focus on other details of your big day.


Finding the right spot for pictures is essential. One of the great things about choosing a local wedding is that you and your photographer can go scout out photo locations beforehand. This is a great way to feel prepared and make sure that you have everything you need to get the wedding day pictures of your dreams.
