A warm congratulations to you and your significant other! Now that you’re engaged or have decided to renew your vows, one of the first essentials is to decide on a venue. Here are a few things to consider:
What is your style? You may know the styles you like or just those that you don’t like. That will help sort and narrow down all the venues to a manageable list.
Do you want an outdoor or indoor space? The majority prefer having outdoor events if the weather permits, but the unpredictability of that may be nerve-wracking. There always needs to be a plan B built contingent upon the weather of the event day. Therefore, make sure you can envision what both outdoor and indoor spaces would look like before you make your decision.
With having intimate events, you’re not limited to small venues. All spaces can be designed to fit the guest count you’re planning for. With bigger venues, it’s important to consider what day of the week you’d like to have your event and cost. Saturdays book up very quickly during the fall and spring and usually have higher rental rates than other days of the week. Fridays or Sundays are wonderful alternatives!
There are many directions and unique designs in a given space. Make sure you visit the venue in person, and start with a space, with its natural design and without any decor, that you’re mesmerized with. This is a good way to set the tone for what’s to come!
