There are so many gorgeous venues to choose from, but how do you decide which venue is right for you? Here are some of the top things to consider when choosing a venue!
Tone and Style
The venue you choose has a huge impact on the tone of your wedding. If you have a specific tone or style in mind to help set the mood of your event, be sure that your venue matches what you have in mind. For example, the Historic Mankin Mansion is the perfect venue for a vintage, romantic styled wedding. Having the right venue allows for an easier time decorating because you already have the ideal backdrop!
You may love the idea of choosing a far off venue location, but think about how accessible the location will be for your guests. If you are planning on having a large wedding, you’ll need to make sure that your guests will realistically be able to get to the location of your venue. You will also need to consider transportation and hotels in relation to your venue. Is it easy to find parking near your venue, or will you need to provide a bus or car service to bring guests to your venue from a different location? If many guests are from out of town and will be need a place to stay, are there hotels near your venue? As you can see, location plays a huge role when deciding which venue works for you!
When deciding on your venue, it’s imperative to keep your budget in mind. Certain venues can drastically help or hurt your budget! For example, is your venue full-service or not? If not, you will need to hire additional vendors to provide seating, lighting, planning, and other necessities, on top of the cost of renting the venue. Having to find and pay for your wedding services may be more expensive than choosing a venue that already provides all the things you love and need!
