What to look for in the Perfect Wedding Venue

There are many things to consider when planning and choosing the perfect wedding venue for your wedding. The options are endless from an elegant country house, a beautiful beach, a quiet restaurant or a converted barn or a function room at a hotel.

What you need to consider is suitability for gets travelling to the wedding venue, the cost of hiring the venue, how many gets it will hold, and what is included in the hire it is essential when sticking to your budget.

Choose a Venue That Matches Your Vision

You will no doubt have a vision in your mind of the type and style of wedding you would both like to have. Choose a wedding venue that matches the image of your big day.

Know Your Guest Numbers

Make sure you make a guest list before you choose wedding venues; there is nothing worse than picking a wedding venue only to find that only half of your guests can attend. It will also help with your budget. Some costs will depend on the number of people you and your partner are inviting to your big day.

Understand What Is Included?

Speak to the organiser and check what they will include in the cost of the wedding venue hire. Some wedding venues will offer a complete wedding package that includes everything from champagne on arrival and catering to the colour scheme of your hired room or marque. Usually, a full package will consist of food for a set number of people, drinks, DJ, entertainment and a room for the night for the married couple.

Stay True to Your Style

Decide what style you want and stick to it, don't let others sway you. It is so easy to get carried away with what others think you should have or do. Remember the wedding day is all about you and your partner so it should be what you both want.

Getting the Best Value Venue for your Money

If you are sticking to a tight budget for your wedding day, you want to get the best value you can. Making a few changes can have a significant impact on your budget.

Choose an Out of Season Date

If the date of your wedding isn't necessary for your plans, try picking an out of wedding season date.  May, June and September are the most popular wedding months. July and August are usually booked in advance.  These months tend to be popular because the weather is often much more delightful. However, this is the UK, so the weather is never really guaranteed.

Go for a Mid-Week Wedding

Traditionally weddings tend to be held on Saturdays. If you pick a different day, the cost can be somewhat cheaper.

Which Month?

January, March, April and November are better months for your budget when choosing wedding venues.

Which Day?

Sunday's through to Thursday's are usually better days for availability at wedding venues and hotels and can be far more cost-effective.
