Finding a wedding venue should be a very exciting task – once you’ve decided on this, the rest of your planning can unfold.
For some people, venue searching may be a daunting task and that’s usually because they aren’t entirely sure of the questions they should be asking the venue.
Before attending viewings, I’d recommend ensuring that the venue is appropriate to the wedding you have in mind. For example, if you’re set on inviting 200 guests, then there’s no point in you looking at venues that can only cater for 50 guests. Most venues have such information on their websites, and if they don’t, it might be worth giving them a call before you head over for a viewing.
I’d recommend clarifying the following, before attending a viewing:
- How many guests can they accommodate for the ceremony and the reception?
- Do they have availability on your chosen wedding day?
- Is the venue within your budget?
