Finding the One

You already found the perfect guy, and you have the perfect ring on your finger, so now it's time to find the perfect venue to host your wedding celebration.

You'll find the same theme throughout our blog, but we'll say it again...

No piece of a wedding is one size fits all. Each element should be a reflection of who you are as a couple, including your venue.

Here are our top tips to keep in mind when choosing your venue:
  • Have an idea of what type of venue you would like to consider for your event such as hotel, country club, banquet hall or specialty venue.
  • Set a budget, inclusive of the space, and likely the food & beverage.
  • Know the size of your guest list. Don’t forget that every person you will invite will not necessarily attend.
  • Always visit the property, and take a site tour,before making your final decision. Pictures and websites can be deceiving.
  • Read reviews of the venues you are considering and check with your friends and family to see if they have attended an event at the facility.
  • Plan what time of day your event will be taking place. Pricing is considerably different between lunch events and dinner events
  • Food service style: pricing is different between plated, buffet and family style service. Some venues do not offer all three types of service.
  • Special features: Have you always dreamed your wedding would have natural light shining through floor to ceiling windows, sky high ceilings, outdoor gardens to stroll through, etc. Identifying, and finding these features can assist in narrowing your selection.
