The Perfect Wedding Venue

Wedding planning can be tough, but when you put the right amount of effort in, the rewards can be multiple. Finding the perfect wedding venue for your needs is one of the most important aspects of planning a wedding and there are many things that you need to consider before you embark on looking for your ideal location. Looking for a venue is likely to be one of the first activities that you need to attend to before you even think about any other aspects, such as booking cars and entertainment, but once you’ve secured a great venue, it makes it a whole lot easier for everything else to simply fall into place.

A wealth of options

The town, city or village that you’re planning upon getting married in is incredibly important. Whilst the venue itself is likely to play a pivotal role in deciding the size of your guest list, you’ll also need to ensure that there is suitable accommodation close by. This is especially true for couples who are inviting guests from all around the country. Your options have been widened over recent years when it comes to the type of venue that you can get married in, but you will have to inform the local registry office of your plans if you’re hoping to get married somewhere particularly unique to ensure that your ceremony is legally binding. More and more people are sidestepping conventional venues such as churches when looking for the perfect wedding venue and instead deciding to hold their ceremonies in places ranging from stately homes to even football grounds.

Multiple or Single Venues?

It can save a lot of time and hassle to hold your reception at the same venue that you’ll be getting married in. This means that there are fewer transportation issues to consider and less organisation to oversee. it can also be a good idea to take advantage of the accommodation on offer, if applicable, to ensure that movement is kept to a minimum. Holding everything under the same roof is also advisable if you have elderly guests to consider who may find travelling from venue to venue to be somewhat tiring. It’s likely that some of your guests will be happy to arrange their own accommodation nearby if there is no support for housing everyone overnight and if you’re marrying relatively near to your home, local guests may be happy to head off in a taxi home as events draw to a close. These are just a few things that you’ll need to consider when identifying your perfect wedding venue.
