10 Questions To Ask Yourself in order To Find The Perfect Wedding Venue

Planning your wedding is incredibly exciting, but also extremely stressful. With so many different decisions to make, it can oftentimes seem overwhelming trying to plan out your dream wedding. Well, we strongly believe that, once you have the venue sorted, everything else seems to fall into place much, much easier. So, to help you do just that, first go ahead and ask yourselves these 10 very simple questions. 

1. How many guests do you have?
Venues come in all shapes and sizes and can cater for anywhere from 50 up to 1,000 guests. So, first off, try to get at least a rough estimate of how many people will be arriving for both the ceremony and the reception afterwards.  

2. Do you want to get married in a church?
Traditionally, wedding ceremonies have always been held in churches. However, this isn’t the case for many modern weddings. Instead, it can oftentimes be cheaper and easier to combine the ceremony and reception to have them at the same venue. 

3. How will people be arriving?
you have a lot of people coming from out of town who will need to use public transport? Or perhaps you expect most people to drive in? If this is the case, you need to ensure that any venues you look at have suitable parking spaces or are closely situated to public transport links.

4. What season do you want to get married in?
Most venues can host weddings at any time of the year, but most are best adept for certain seasons. Of course, summer weddings are more popular as you can hope for nicer weather. If this is the case, then you need to get in contact with venues as early as possible as they book up months in advance.  

5. Do you like things modern or traditional?
Across the UK, there are so many different wedding venues, each of which offers a different kind of look and appeal. So, you have plenty of flexibility to decide on a style that suits you best. Perhaps you like the idea of a traditional mansion house in the countryside? Instead, your tastes might lean towards a modern city wedding? 

6. What layout do you want for your wedding?
As well as thinking about where your venue is located, think about how you will want it to look on the inside. Some people prefer a minimalist design whilst others like lots of fairy lights and decorations. By deciding how you would like the layout of your wedding to be, you can then ensure that any potential venues have space to accommodate you.  

7. What sort of food were you hoping for? 
Many venues have preferred caterers who they work with, and these can be limited in the sort of food they offer. Alternately, many venues allow you to choose your own caterer and bring in whatever you want. Perhaps you want a traditional 4-course meal? Or maybe an outdoor BBQ to make the most of the weather? Once you know what you want, you can then see which venues can accommodate this. 

8. Do you want there to be a late-night party?
Not all wedding venues operate into the early hours of the morning, and their alcohol licenses can differ. So, what sort of wedding would you like? Are you looking for one where guests can stay until the early hours dancing and celebrating? If so, you’ll also need to ensure the venue can accommodate a dance floor and band. 

9. Do you want complete privacy?
If you get married in the middle of a town or city, then consider that you and your guest will have less privacy from the public. If you want something a bit more secluded, then your best bet would be to look for a stately home in the country with large surrounding gardens.

Last, but certainly not least, try and set a budget for your entire wedding early on. Weddings aren’t typically cheap and the sky really is the limit on how much you can spend. Set a budget early on and then find a venue that fits nicely into this and still offers plenty of flexibility for other expenses.

  11. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell
