Planning a Wedding? Five Things to Look For in a Venue

Planning a Wedding? Five Things to Look For in a Venue


Planning a wedding or a special event requires taking care of many details. If you are currently engaged in a search for the perfect spot for your wedding, here are five tips for finding the best wedding venue to make your special day unforgettable.

  1. A Beautiful Setting

    Deciding where you are having your wedding is a very important first step. Are you looking at outdoor wedding places? Well, then, you are not alone. Outdoor occasions comprise about 35% of all weddings. In that case, you may want to think of having your guests and bridal party stay in cabins. Cabins and cottages, especially by lake resorts, are gorgeous settings for a wedding. If your ceremony is indoors, you will want to look at banquet halls and perhaps a beautiful mountain resort.

  2. All Inclusive Event Packages

    Your dream wedding does not have to be extravagant and over-the-top expensive. A lot will depend on the size of your celebration. The average number of guests invited to a wedding is 136, as of 2014. Your best wedding venue value may be finding a facility with wedding packages and an on-site specialist who can create a custom package to fit your budget.

  3. Everything in One Place

    Are you considering destination wedding places among your choices for your best wedding venue, like a mountain resort? If so, then you will probably want to find a place that will have all phases of your ceremony and reception celebrated in one place. This would be ideal for the wedding ceremony, and then with the catering/pastry facilities right on-site, guests will be able to enjoy dinner, cocktails and of course, the cake!

  4. Creating Special Memories

    Another aspect to consider when looking for your best wedding venue are all the things that go along with making your wedding day unforgettable. Ideally, you will be able to find a getaway location, like a lake resort, near the cabins you are all staying in. Here is where you will find the on site professionals who will be able to assist you with a variety of services such as decorations, music and DJ, photography and video, and lighting. These will add a wonderful dimension to the memories you will want to treasure forever.

  5. Transportation

    Are you getting married in a different location from where your reception is being held? For instance, you may be having your wedding ceremony in a church or temple, and then going to another site with cabins and lodging for your reception. If this is the case, make sure to look for a venue that has the ability to provide wedding packages that include transportation for you. This way, you will be able to enjoy the ride to the reception, and you will arrive in style!

Finding the perfect wedding venue takes time, thought and planning. But once you are satisfied, then you can enjoy your dream day knowing that every detail has been taken care of. And remember, mountain resorts on a site with cabins are also great for other types of special events such as baby showers, corporate events, and even graduation party venues.
