So You Want The Wedding Venue Of Your Dreams?

When you get engaged, not only are you floating on cloud nine with happiness, but you’ve also got a lot of vital decisions to make. Whether you’ve had your dream wedding planned in your head since you were a little girl, or you’re looking for the perfect theme, one of the most important decisions to make is where you’re going to get married. Deciding on a venue is a big deal. It not only sets the theme of your wedding, but also the kind of plans you can make. So, when you start looking into venues, here’s what you need to consider.

Views

Of course, the main thing that’s going to be on your mind when you look at pictures of venues and physically walk around them is ascetics. Because what the venue actually looks like is hugely important to you and your future husband – especially if you have a set look in mind. But, it’s also worth thinking about the views that the venue offers you. Not only do you want to remember this day forever, but you want to make sure that the photos you get are perfect.

Space

Next up, space. When you’re planning a wedding, you’ve got lots of parts of the day to plan. From the ceremony itself to the reception to drinks receptions, dancing and even where you’re going to get ready in the morning. So, as you look at potential wedding venues, you need to see where everything can go. Look at each of the rooms that are available to you and see if you’re happy with where each part of the wedding would potentially be held.

Services Offered

Then you’re also going to want to chat to the venue owners to events team to see what services their venue comes with. Sometimes, you will find that you’re quite restricted by what they offer, in the sense that you have to use their services rather than your own. So, if their offerings don’t match up with what you have in mind, you might then need to find a place that offers the venue alone and not a full service wedding.

Supplies Available

Along with the services that the venue can offer you, you should also think about the supplies. If you want a dance floor or cocktail making station, or anything else that the venue does or doesn’t supply, you’re going to need to make sure you can find a specialist, like Barlens wedding supplies, that can make sure your wedding looks like it should.

Cost

This part is either going to be all important to you or irrelevant. But, you do need to consider the cost. If you’re on a tight budget, your venue choice may come down to what you can afford. Or, if you have no budget, you should be able to consider any options available to you. However, if you are trying to stick to a set limit, you should work out the top floor you have to spend on the venue and only look at venues under that, so as not to get disheartened.

Wedding Planning: Your First Vital Decisions

When you have a wedding to plan, there can be so much to think about that it is difficult to know where to begin. As with anything like this, it is useful to just start anywhere, as that way you can at least get going. But it can be helpful to know where a good place to start is, so that you can get off to a strong start. As it happens, there are certain aspects of planning a wedding which you probably want to get out of the way as early as you can. That way, you can free up your time for all the remaining things, the little details, and make sure you have got the big ones dealt with early on. Let’s take a look at which decisions you should be making as early as possible.

Venue

Booking a venue can often be surprisingly difficult. In part, this is because you never quite know where will be free and when, but it is also because it just takes so much time. You don’t want to rush it, as it might be the single most important detail of the whole day. You want to make sure you are looking properly around the venue, considering every aspect of it, before you settle on anything. And it can often be frustrating to discover that your ideal venue is way above your budget. All of these complications mean that you should try and book your venue in as early as you possibly can.

Rings

Although these might not seem as important on the scale of the venue and so forth, there is a very good reason that you should get the rings over and done with. For a start, many couples know the experience of leaving the reigns to the very last minute. This happens simply because they seem to be such a small part of the whole decision making process. However, if you leave it too late, you might end up having to rush and choosing rings which are not what your ideal would be. If you really care about which wedding rings you have, then you should be sure to get this done as early as you can, so that you can find rings you really want.

Date

Along with the venue, around the same time, you obviously need to pick a date. It is generally helpful to have the date slightly loose, so that you can work it around the venues a little easier. But once you have found a venue which suits your dates, then you should lock it in as early as you can. This will take most of the stress out of it, and also means that you can begin sending around the save the date cards. That is one of those steps which often makes it seem very suddenly real, so it is worth it just for that. If nothing else, this will help you to feel that you can start to get excited for your own wedding  -and that is a great feeling indeed.

When It Comes To Your Wedding, It’s All About The Details

You want your wedding to be perfect right? Of course you do! It’s thing from the one of, if not the most important day of your life so why shouldn’t you want everything to be just so? Of course, trying to make everything perfect can be a bit of challenge, especially when you’ve got so many things to organised at once. Everything from the venue, the guest list, the decor, and more is probably swimming around your head at all times. Because of that, it can be pretty easy to end up missing certain things. The little details that slip through the cracks might not seem like such a big deal, but they really can make all the difference when it comes to turning your wedding into the perfect day that you deserve. To help make sure that it’s smooth sailing all the way, here are some little details about your wedding that you won’t want to ignore.

Who will be there?

This might seem like a seriously obvious question, but it’s actually more complicated than it might first appear. For one thing, you should ask yourself, who do you actually want to invite to your wedding? So often, a bride and groom end up inviting people to their wedding out of some sense of obligation rather than actually wanting them there. When that happens, it can make things pretty awkward and uncomfortable for everyone involved. But the people at your wedding aren’t just limited to the guests. Everyone from the photographer to the person who’s actually conducting the service are people who will be attending your wedding, so you’ll want to make sure that they’re the right people for you.

Kids or no kids?

This is a question that many couples face when they’re planning a wedding. Some people feel as though kids are the life and soul of any celebration and that any wedding without kids is going to be missing something. However, there are also those who feel as though a wedding should be a calm, refined, adults only affair and that the sense of chaotic energy that kids almost inevitably bring should be saved for other places. That choice is entirely down to you and your partner, but it’s something that a lot of people tend not to consider. If you decide to have kids at your wedding, then think about things that you can do to keep them entertained, like a crafts table or specialised, kid friendly zones.

Once you’ve decided who is actually going to be at your wedding, you need to think about where they’re going to sit. This might seem like an incredibly small, simple aspect of a wedding but it can often end up taking up a huge amount of time and space in your mind. You don’t want to separate people into groups in a way that makes anyone feel less important than anyone else, but at the same time, you’re going to want the people closest to your to be near you during the reception. Think about mixing up family members, so your’s and your partner’s guests aren’t separated. Not only that but it’s a good idea to have a solid mix of people at every table. Outside of your own table, where you’ll likely have your closest friends and family, there’s no reason to arrange things by how close you are to certain people.

How to Find the Ideal Wedding Venue

A wedding venue can make or break a big day. The chances are, you’ve viewed many possible venues, read lots of reviews and have plenty of ideas – and all this can often lead to much confusion. Our goal is to help you eliminate the venues that aren’t suitable for your wedding day, so you’ll find the best venue to suit both you and your partner.

Where Do You Want to Get Married?

There are so many places in the world you can say “I do”. So you need to ask yourself and your partner, “where is the best place to get married?” Do you have a place in mind that’s special to you both? Is location important so both families can share your special day? Or would you rather have a more intimate wedding day abroad?

All of these questions will determine where in the world you choose to get married. Do you dream of getting married outdoors in the UK? Well, you might need to nip into the registry office first, as all UK weddings must take place in a permanent structure with a roof.

Have You Both Got the Same Idea?

Whilst you might dream of a wedding in a tropical location, your partner may have their heart set on their 30 James Street. Talk to your partner to find out their dream wedding day to see if you’re on the page. If you’re not, you both need to come to some sort of a compromise. For example, you could always marry in your hometown and have a wedding blessing performed on a sunny beach abroad.

Are You Willing to Travel or Looking for an All-Inclusive Venue?

If transport is an issue, you might want to consider a wedding venue that can offer both a ceremony and reception venue. However, if you’re willing to travel, you’ll have more options. For example, you could marry in a church, barn, country house or stately home before heading off to a hotel, football club or even your own home for the reception. Take a look at the licensed wedding hotels or other wedding venues in your desired area.

How Many People Will Attend the Wedding?

You most likely know if you want a small, medium or large wedding. The size of the wedding party will determine your venue location, so ask plenty of questions and do your homework before you book the big day. The last thing you’ll want is to book a wedding venue that caters for over 200 people when you’ve only invited half that amount.

Do You Know the Availability?

It’s all well and good planning a wedding around a venue, but is that venue available for your desired day? Before you do anything, check dates and times so you don’t waste your time planning a big day in a venue that isn’t available.

Finding the perfect wedding venue doesn’t have to be stressful. Simply narrow down exactly what you both want, who is invited and when the big day will be. The rest will easily fall into place.
