The invites, the food, the gown, the bridesmaids’ and groomsmen’s attire – all of these you need to take into account. But do not forget your guests! Planning a wedding requires you to make sure that your guests will be comfortable. In this regard, choosing a wedding venue is an important thing to prioritise.
Not only does it have a hefty price tag but it will also dictate the quality and atmosphere of the gathering. There are a few considerations to keep in mind when choosing a venue. These things will help ensure that your attendees will come and you will maximise your budget.
Here are some pointers to remember.
The Size of the Venue
The size of the venue will obviously depend on the number of guests coming over. Before you choose a place, have some guests in mind, contact them ahead of time and get their confirmation. Once you have received their confirmation, finalise your choice and start working on its aesthetics.
Often, some venues double as wedding suppliers. If you still have no caterer or entertainment, you may ask your venue if they offer such services. Normally, these services come in a package once you book with them. You may find this cheaper compared to getting individual suppliers.
You are in luck if they also offer photography and videography services.
This is an important issue to keep in mind, as it will surely influence the number of guests coming over. If the venue is too far from their homes, you can always hire a minibus from Sydney that will take them to the reception. Make sure that the venue has ample parking.
These are just some of the things to keep in mind when choosing a wedding venue. Coordinate with your planner (if you already have one) should you already have a venue in mind.
