There are a few different decisions during the wedding planning process that can have an impact on your big day. One of those decisions is picking the right wedding venue. In this blog, we’re going to go over some tips and tricks that you can use to pick out the right venue.

Picking a Wedding Venue

If you’re feeling stressed at the thought of picking the right wedding venue, you’re not alone. There are so many couples that don’t know where to start, so we’ve put together this list of things that you can consider during the selection process.


One of the first things that you should consider is what you are and aren’t willing to compromise on. Some couples have a date that they really want to secure, but don’t care as much about the budget. Others will draw a hard line at their budget, but don’t care so much about the location. Either way, it’s important to make sure that you understand what you are and aren’t willing to change about your big day.


Location is one of the most important factors to consider when it comes to picking out the right wedding venue. Consider thinking about whether you want a local wedding or a destination wedding. For some couples, location is something that they’re willing to compromise on – are you one of those couples?


Another thing that’s undoubtedly important to think about is the price that you’re willing to pay for your venue. Some venues are extremely cost effective, while others will land on the pricier side. Either way, it’s very helpful to have a specific budget in mind when you’re shopping around for venues.


The staff that a venue has can impact how your big day goes. Consider asking them what staff would be there for your big day and getting a better understanding of how that might go. If you don’t connect well with a venue’s staff, that might be a sign it’s not the right choice for you.


Taking a look at a potential venue’s contract can give you a better idea of whether or not you feel comfortable with that option. Learning more about the contract that a venue provides can be important, as it’s a legal document that you’ll need to sign if you do end up choosing that venue.


Asking to see a venue’s contract is something that not every couple does, but it’s something that can be helpful and give you a better idea of what you’re looking for when you’re trying to narrow down your options.


One of the last important things to think about is what exactly a venue offers. Do they include tables and chairs? What about cutlery? Asking these questions is a great way to better understand your venue and make sure that you’re on the right track.


Consider asking each venue you tour if they can send you a comprehensive list of all their offerings.
