Four Things You Should Consider Before Booking Your Wedding Venue
Everyone enjoys the sound of wedding bells and the joy that is associated with them. If you are in the early stages of planning your perfect wedding, then you know that the venue itself is just as important as the big day. Not sure of what to consider before choosing the right location? Laferla’s got your back with its definitive list of tips as well as great wedding insurance packages that can be tailored to your needs!
1. Research is key
It’s important that you spend some time researching the venue and what it can offer. Venues can vary in size so it’s vital that your choice has the capacity to cater for the number of people attending, be it 50 or 500. After all, you don’t want your friends to be looking in from outside the venue!
Another thing to consider is the time of day and the season when you wish to tie the knot. This may seem obvious but it can be easily overlooked. Certain guests, especially those travelling from abroad, may not be able to attend at certain times of the year. It may be your big day but you must also be considerate of your guests’ availability.
2. Visit the Venue
Small details such as how the light floods in through the windows and doors and what flowers are blooming around the venue really do have a huge impact on the overall ambiance of your wedding. Therefore, it is important that you visit the venue at the same time of day and season that you wish to get married.
Also, invite your wedding planner along. She or he will usually have a different take on a venue and can offer invaluable insight.
3. Decide on the Wedding Style
Are you looking to plan a romantic, rustic style wedding? Perhaps you prefer a floral themed wedding? No matter what your preference is, you should take in to consideration that not all venues will be able to offer you what you want. Many people overlook choosing a wedding style early on, thinking that it can be sorted once the venue is picked. It is actually one of the most important decisions to make in the early stages of planning as you will end up saving a lot on decoration and décor as well as disappointment!
4. Know all the Information
They say knowledge is power and this couldn’t be more true when it comes to choosing your venue. Making a list of questions you’d like to ask about the venue is a good idea. Also, be persistent in your asking and ask everyone you can. You’d be surprised by the variety of answers one question can generate.
Once everything is planned to your specific needs you can sit back and enjoy the festivities on the day. If anything doesn’t go according to plan, take solace in the fact that Laferla’s wedding insurance has you covered. Click here to find out more and request a free quote.
