Venue, Venue, Where Can You Be?

When you are planning your wedding, the question of venue is probably one of the most important things on your mind. Where will you have the wedding? What will it look like? Will the atmosphere be right for the theme of your wedding?

Of course the answers to all of these questions depend deeply on the kind of wedding you are planning to have. This brings us to another very important point; a great consulting company is indispensable when picking the perfect wedding venue. A wedding consultant will know what places are good, what places are not so good, and how to get the best pricing on the venue you select. Plus, turning the job over to a consulting company will take some of the stress off of you.

One last thing to remember is this; always ask for recommendations from family, friends, co-workers, catering companies, and even wedding planners before picking a venue. A good word of mouth recommendation helps you know for sure you are getting what you need for your wedding!

Church wedding

For a church wedding, you will need to select a church that has enough seating and resources for your bridal party and guests. Some churches will only allow members of their own congregations to use their building; however other will rent the church out for weddings. Because most churches are busy, you need to get in touch with the pastor or management committee as soon as possible to find out if the church you have selected is available.

Urban wedding

You should look into hiring a club, café, or community center. Many of these places have both ample space and facilities for your wedding. Usually, they are easier to book than churches. But this also means you need to book them farther in advance.

Ethnic weddings

You might want a plain studio venue where you can bring in the exact furnishings that you want. A great party rental company can usually supply you with most of the items you will need. Plain studio venues allow you the versatility of making a customized wedding environment, but they also are expensive, hard to find, and tightly booked.

Destination weddings

Destination weddings are by far the hardest to plan for when choosing a venue. It is almost imperative that you take a pre-wedding trip to your location to pick the right venue, unless you have a wedding planner or consultant that can do it for you.

This brings us to another very important point; a great consulting company is indispensable when picking the perfect wedding venue. A wedding consultant will know what places are good, what places are not so good, and how to get the best pricing on the venue you select.
