How to Book A Wedding Venue
How to book a wedding venue? With so many out there with various prices and offers, it can become a nightmare in selecting one. Choosing a location for your wedding is very important. It sets the tone for the whole event. In the background of all your photos, videos, and memories, this is the place that will serve as landscape.
So, for a perfect wedding, the first step is to choose the ideal venue! Below are some tips to help you and take into account this decisive moment.
1 – Check availability (and get ahead of the competition)!
Planning a wedding is a complex process, full of boundaries and ups and downs, and above all, it takes a long time. A well-planned wedding requires months of planning. Therefore, not a few times, the bride and groom leave the marking of the venue for the last months before the wedding, and this is the first big mistake they make.
All the best and most popular event venues (weddings and so on) usually have a full booking, with huge waiting lines. So if you don’t want to fall in love with the “perfect farm” to find out later that it no longer has any dates available to receive your wedding, try to make the reservation as early as possible.
2 – Don’t rush your choice (counterintuitive, right?)
After what has been said on the above topic, it may seem strange and even contradictory to ask now to take your time to analyze all the options and choose the ideal location for your wedding. However, in all my years of experience as a wedding planner, I can already say that there is nothing that ruins the memories of a wedding more than late regret over the choice of location.
Either because they live farm is not as emblematic as it seemed from the photos, or because the available space becomes tight for the number of guests. One thousand one reason can make any location for your wedding unfeasible, and you must look at each of them before choosing what will be your “home” during the most important day of your life.
3 – Is it within reach of your budget (and your guests)?
To avoid unnecessary frustrations, you must set a strict budget on the range of values you can negotiate for farm reservations, catering, etc…
There will always be a better, bigger, more elegant, more exuberating place. The perfect place, but it will undoubtedly be far above your budget, and you’d love to win the lottery to have a chance to get a reservation.
So spare yourself and your guests (in many cultures it is traditional for the guest to “give a gift” an amount similar to the expected cost per head at the event) this displeasure and be realistic, from start to finish.
4 – What do the testimonies say?
Whether on the Internet or through acquaintances of yours or your relatives. Listen to the testimonies of those who have already witnessed events (either as host or guest) at this location and consider it all.
5 – Nothing better than a local tour!
Better than reading and listening are seeing. Most farms give a complete tour of the structure and surroundings. Don’t hesitate to ask for such a “treat” and absorb as much of the environment as possible. When you know the “right place,” believe me, you will know!
