Planning a wedding can be stressful. From choosing the perfect dress to deciding your guest list, there are many decisions that need to be made before the big day arrives. One of the most important decisions you will make is selecting a venue for your wedding ceremony and reception. The venue will be one of the most memorable decisions you make, so it’s worth taking to find the right one for you and your partner.
In this blog post we’ll explore 11 tips and tricks for finding a perfect location!
#1 Find Out if Your Date is Available – As you’re shopping for wedding venues, it’s important to have a date in mind for your wedding. So as you’re reaching out to potential wedding venues make sure to ask if your date is available.
If you’re flexible on which day of the week to get married, you may consider doing it on a Friday or Sunday. Some venues provide discounted rental rates, so make sure to ask about our Friday and Sunday rates.
#2 Schedule a Venue Tour – The best way to know if the venue is right for you is to plan a visit with your partner. Before the tour, write down any questions you may have, and plan some time during your visit to review them with the venue.
Also as you tour the venue, make sure to keep an open mind. It’s possible the venue may not be decorated, so try to visualize it dressed to the nine’s with all your wedding day decor.
#3 Take Pictures and Video – During your tour, make sure to take pictures and video of the venue. You can always refer to them during the wedding planning process.
#4 – Ask About Outside Vendors – Ask the venue about their policy for having outside vendors assist with your wedding. At Promise Farm, we only provide the venue space, so all our couples are welcome to work with whichever vendors they prefer.
#5 – Consider A Venue That Fits Your Style – It’s important to choose a wedding venue that will fit the overall vision of your wedding. At Promise Farm we provide a rustic elegant vibe. We consider our venue to be a blank canvas allowing couples to decorate it any way they’d like. This along with our spacious main room and outdoor areas, makes our wedding venue suitable for weddings of all sizes and styles.
#6 Confirm Your Venue Rental Before It’s Too Late – Most wedding venues are booked on a first come first serve basis. So if there’s a date you have your heart set on, it’s important to confirm your venue rental as soon as possible. This is usually done by paying the rental deposit.
