Wedding Venue Mistakes to Avoid
Choosing a venue can take more time than expected. You should start shortlisting wedding venues a year or two prior to your wedding to prevent any regrets that you might have in case of a wrong choice. Here are some mistakes that you should avoid when looking for wedding venues.
Some people focus on the beauty of a wedding venue, and rightly so. No matter how picturesque it is – if your wedding hall is bursting at the seams – your wedding will turn into a miserable experience. You should obviously start with and ask about the capacity of the wedding hall. Other items to consider would be separate spaces for the bride and groom, the size and location/s of the bar, and any other spaces besides the banquet room available to your guests. Make your list of guests and analyze whether a wedding hall has enough room (not just the bar and banquet room) to accommodate everyone comfortably under one roof.
Ignoring Your Wedding Style
The choice of a wedding venue somewhat depends upon your wedding style. If hastily booking a wedding venue, you might overlook whether the space blends with your wedding style or not.
Choosing a Venue That Requires a lot of Decoration
If you’d prefer spending your budget on great food and drink, you should opt for a venue that doesn’t require too much embellishment. Depending on your vision and wedding style, you should look for a wedding hall with architectural details that could make a powerful impact. Soaring ceilings, large doorways, and event lighting go a long way in creating the perfect ambiance.
Asking Relevant Questions
You should make a list of questions, such as how many people can your hall accommodate, would there be private rooms for our guests, or a lounge where they can relax, etc. Do you have space for ceremony and reception? Are there ample restrooms? Is setup time included? Do you have air conditioning? And much more.
Not Calling on a Venue
Any of the above mistakes can happen if you haven’t visited your wedding venue or you didn’t have enough conversation with a vendor. Most people get excited by seeing elegant photos of wedding venues and book one that they think is beautiful, or their wedding planners suggests to them. Don’t rely on a recommendation only, visit the space prepared with the questions that are important to you. This is your once in a lifetime event and avoiding these mistakes will provide a wonderful lasting memory for you and your guests.
