For most brides, the most important things about preparing for the wedding are picking the right person to marry, the right people to stand up with you, and the right wedding dress. However, it’s important to not forget about the importance of the venue as well, since it is the place where everyone will meet, and you will profess your love to the person you plan to spend the rest of your life with.
When it comes to picking the right venue there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. It’s a matter of making sure you’ll have everything you need, that everyone you want present can be there, and that it’s right for the type of wedding you want to have.
What’s Your Theme?
If you want a church wedding then you are definitely limiting your venue options, although you can still have your reception elsewhere. However, you’d want someplace kind of close to the church so that people don’t have to travel a ton to get to the right destination, especially after they’ve probably already traveled a great deal to be at your wedding.
The More They Supply The less You Have To
If you find a venue in which you can have your wedding and your reception together, not only does this save time, but it might also save you some money. Most wedding venues, including Adams Pointe, home to Blue Springs Weddings, offer everything a bride needs for their dream wedding. All inclusive wedding venues make it easier for you to enjoy wedding planning.
With this type of venue you have tables and chairs supplied, and can even opt for catering in house. If you want something smaller, you may have a smaller bill but you’ll also be covering more of the supplies.
Will All Your Guests Fit
Obviously you need to make sure that your venue of choice is the right size for your desired amount of guests. A small country church probably won’t be a good place for a wedding of hundreds, and you won’t need a venue for hundreds if you’re only have 60 guests.
Always Visit The Venue
One other suggested idea, which could be useful if you are getting married someplace busy or popular, is to check out your wedding venue on the day and time you plan to have your wedding, like a Saturday at noon. This can give you a feel of what the traffic is going to be like and other things.
Most importantly, you want to make sure your choice venue has availability on the day you’ve chosen as your wedding date. Some people pick their wedding date for a specific reason, so you want to make sure there are no conflicts.
