Choosing the right venue with all the amenities and perfect scenery is perhaps the most important decision you have to take during the entire wedding planning fiasco. According to surveys, a wedding venue is also the most expensive splurge out of all the different components that go into a perfect wedding. You can definitely save here and there on your dress, photography and décor, but an astounding venue, if chosen correctly, can blur out the other imperfections.
Follow our guide on what your wedding venue must have.
Don’t Compromise On The Space
The last thing you want on your wedding day is a hall full of stacked tables, chairs and flowers giving you a crowded appeal. When looking for the ideal venue, make sure you look for options that are more spacious and elaborate, unless your wedding list is really small. To get a correct estimation of the actual size of the hall, visit the property during another wedding with all the amenities already stacked up inside.
A Fully Equipped Staff
As we all know, the actual wedding day is indeed a stressful one. We all want everything to go as planned, and what’s better than having a well-equipped and professional staff at your service at the venue at all times. Whether it’s time to dim the lights, turn the music up or serve dinner to the guests, you need to make sure that there is a dedicated team of staff members on their toes to help make the night special and memorable.
If you’re slightly short on budget, and want real wooden floorings without the high costs, try asking the venue owners for any laminate flooring. Laminated floorings are a composite made of synthetic woods with a lamination process and provide much more advantage than the actual hardwood floorings. It also has a protective clear coating that makes the floorings non-porous and water-resistant. Plus, it makes a great dance floor for the first dance as husband and wife!
While privacy can vary widely according to the venue you are looking for, if you’re going with an exotic beach location or a public hotspot for your wedding, be prepared for strangers to trek past your wedding, they may smile or offer their wishes to you. If you don’t like the idea, then perhaps stick to gated communities, private estates or hotel ballrooms.
A View You Like
If you’re splurging thousands of dollars on this dream venue of yours, why not opt for the views you love. Remember that the views will serve as a backdrop to all the main events happening there. It will also act as the perfect background for the nuptials and wedding portraits, so whether it’s the gorgeous skyline, a stunning water feature, breathtaking forest views or astounding artistic galleries, make sure you find the one that’s worth the investment.
