As the place where you take wedding photos, celebrate with friends and family, and say your vows, the venue is one of the most important details to address when planning the nuptials. But since these events come in all shapes and sizes, not every location will be right for you. Fortunately, if you consider the following factors while touring wedding venues, you will find the perfect place to get married.

Details to Look for in Wedding Venues

  1. Size

The venue should be big enough to comfortably accommodate all your guests and any vendor staff you may hire. When touring the facility, find out how many people can be seated in the reception area for meals, how big the dance floor is, and how many guests can attend the ceremony. If it’s not large enough, you may need to cut down your guest list or find another location.

  1. Aesthetic  

From stately to modern, venues can offer a variety of styles. Before you choose a location, make sure the look of the property matches your overall wedding theme. For example, if you are going for a garden theme, it makes sense to plan your ceremony at a place that offers a lot of vibrant greenery—such as a golf course.

  1. Flexibility

An ideal venue will be able to accommodate your preferences and adjust their offerings as needed. One common point of flexibility to look for is whether the location offers both indoor and outdoor areas for entertaining. When you have these options, you can enjoy more freedom when planning your wedding.

  1. Policies

A venue’s rules may not always align with your dream wedding plans. For example, certain locations may not open early if you want a brunch or morning event. Some places have strict guidelines about decor. Also, ask about their cancellation policy in case you need to make a change.

  1. Lodging Proximity

If you have guests coming from out-of-town, you’ll want to find a wedding venue that is conveniently located near hotels. If a location fits your interests, ask the planning staff about what’s nearby and if they offer discounts or group rates for their clients.
