Things To Consider When Looking For A Wedding Venue

Choosing your wedding location is among the biggest decisions you’ll make during the preparation process. Reserving a venue was the most expensive choice couples made while preparing their nuptials. But other than budget, you may be questioning what else to try to find in your wedding location. Of course, you must be browsing for that special feeling of finding “the one,” but there are other factors to think about. Before you schedule your wedding place, make certain you ask all the right questions and ask to take a tour of the residential or commercial property. As you walk through your prospective wedding location, be on the lookout for these particular things.

Is the size suitable for your visitor list?

When preparing your wedding event and reception, picking a venue like Vines of the Yarra Valley that is the ideal size for your celebrations is necessary. The last thing you wish to do is have your visitor sitting cheek to jowl due to the fact that your location was too small for the group you are welcoming. Pay special attention to the capacity of any location you are taking a look at before booking and ensure that it has an area for the activities you’re planning on holding.


When to book

It’s perfectly regular for couples to reserve their picked wedding event location 12-18 months prior to their wedding date, providing plenty of time to prepare their best day. The big popular wedding event places up and down the country get reserved up a long period of time ahead of time during the peak, summer wedding season, so we encourage that you schedule as soon as you’ve found ‘the one’.

Guest Count

How many people are expected? Many facilities ask for a rough price quote 60– 90 days in advance of your function– and they’ll want a deposit based upon the figure you give them. A confirmed guest count or warranty is usually needed 72 hours prior to the event. It is necessary to come up with a solid estimate of your visitor list early on in order to prepare your budget plan and select the right ceremony or reception spot.

Do some research study

As you start your search for the ideal venue, some easy online research study may help you narrow the field. Wedding blogs and forums are a great way to see what other brides have done and what has worked well in different types of venues.

Think about your concerns

Once you have a guest, budget, and location count, it’s time to start thinking about what your dream venue would look like. Or perhaps you’re looking for a venue that’s conveniently located, pet-friendly, and allows you to choose an outside caterer.

Check Out the Location Weeks in Advance

Take time to visit the venue yourself in person if your clients choose a venue that you have not to see yet. Ideally, you wish to visit the venue on the same day of the week and at the same time as the wedding. If the wedding is on a Saturday, and the ceremony starts at noon, do not go to the venue on a Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. Checking out at the same time of day and on the same day of the week as the wedding will provide you a better insight of things like the traffic, weather condition, and the atmosphere of the venue during the daytime rather than nightfall.
