Finding a wedding venue that suits your needs is perhaps almost as essential as picking your dream dress. Once you have found the perfect venue, the rest of your wedding will come together with ease as details such as decor, style and the colour scheme of your big day will be inspired by the location you have chosen. To help you determine whether a venue is your ideal fit, its important to consider a variety of circumstances and keep these important factors in mind.
Decide What Type of Venue You Desire
Manor houses, country hotels and other listed buildings are very popular for weddings and create a gorgeous backdrop for anyone wanting to enjoy a special day surrounded by architectural splendour and rolling meadows. You might have found a beautiful manor house available for weddings and most country estates that hold weddings are well versed in the procedures and offer a variety of packages that can be tailored to fit your needs. However, if you prefer something a little less traditional, there are many other avenues that can be explored. Depending on your personality, you may want to opt for a quirkier establishment. When you decide on your venue, it is essential that you consider the time of year. A wet-weather alternative is always a good idea to ensure that rain doesnt ruin your day.
Check Your Space Requirements
One of the most important aspects of choosing a wedding venue is making sure that you can accommodate everyone on your guest list. This may seem like an obvious consideration, but often a venue is seen empty, and once tables and chairs, a band stand or DJ stage and lighting are in place, the size of a room quickly becomes reduced. An outdoor venue is a great option for a large wedding as there is plenty of space. Any venue that has an indoor-outdoor flow will also easily accommodate an excess of guests. If possible, ask the venue if you can sneak a peek at another wedding of a similar size and see how the space is utilised and how much elbow room there is for every guest.
Confirm the Existing Colour Scheme
Theres nothing worse than finding your perfect wedding venue and realising the decor doesnt match your dream colour scheme. When looking for a venue, it’s essential that you check whether the walls and decor are neutral or will suit a colour scheme that you desire, and that you are not going to end up clashing pink table cloths with red walls or similar. Youll also need to check that the style of your decor doesnt conflict with the venue’s, and that you are able to decorate as you prefer.
