Keys to choosing the venue
The location of the wedding is basic so that those to whom you have sent the wedding invitations, with the pertinent indications, can have a wonderful experience in all senses:
By entering the venue, enjoying the original wedding ideas you have planned for them, and even choosing the party dresses they will wear on B-day. Do you know where you will be celebrating?
If not, don’t miss out on these tips. They’ll make your choice easier and help you get it right. Sure!
There are couples who do not ask themselves all these questions, because they are clear about it: “we will get married where my parents did”, “we want to get married in the place of the first date”, “it will be in the garden of our farm”…
Whether it is for family or sentimental reasons, those who are linked to a particular place do not have to question some things, yes… but they must ask themselves others, as if the space is the dirty big thing so that all the guests can move around without problems – especially if they have opted for a cocktail banquet and.
In addition to the loved ones, there will also be the waiters serving the drinks and the dishes – whether it will be accessible for baby carriages and people with reduced mobility, whether there will be space left for the final party, whether there will be no problem in creating a corner with the ideas for the candy bar…
Where it will be and how to get there
Other couples must continue to decide which criteria should take precedence in the choice of venue, according to their personality, tastes and hobbies: the beach, the mountains, the countryside, the garden of a farmhouse, a spacious hall with wonderful views…
In any case, make it clear how to get to the place in question in the wedding invitation texts. If it is very complicated, you can add a plan, map or sketch that facilitates its location to the attendees or enable coaches for guests who wish to move without problems.
As close as possible… or even in the same place!
Many couples choose to hold the ceremony and the banquet in the same place. A choice that has been gaining a lot of support in recent years. This option will also be very suitable if you have decided to get married in another town, city, region or even country, as you will avoid those guests who have had to travel to your wedding from feeling lost.
In the banquet directory of the portal you will find dream spaces where you can celebrate both a civil and a religious wedding – in small chapels -, before continuing with the wedding banquet a few metres away. Also, as an amusing idea for your wedding, you can prepare a hotel so that those attending can stay overnight or have a room where they can rest and relax as much as they wish.
In private, please
Many brides and grooms want their big day to be unique and 100% exclusive, so before deciding on one space or another it is important to consider whether, on the same day of your wedding, another celebration will take place in the same place.
The exclusivity of the services -or not- is one of the factors that will determine to a great extent if it is the right place for you or not.
Division of spaces
Taking into account the infrastructure of the place, its dimensions and its possibilities, value the distribution of the space and all that it includes. Can you count on internal and external areas? Will it be necessary to rent furniture? Will you have a specific place for each venue?
Do not forget this aspect and, when visiting the different options on your list, pay special attention to where the appetizer will take place, where the banquet, where the first dance, where the party, where to install the ideas for the photocall and where the dinner will be set up. Also make sure that the space has enough facilities for all your loved ones.
It goes without saying: it is the humane treatment that ultimately makes the difference and will make your choice one way or another.
Although it is a question of “chemistry”, ask your doubts about the development of the big day, make sure that the space will be 100% to your liking and that you will be able to introduce changes if some element does not convince you…
Hire someone to take care of you and help you to make everything go smoothly. It’s your big day and it must be perfect from start to finish.
Depending on the number of guests (which those responsible for the venue will ask you to define from a deadline) you will know if you need to have a large space to accommodate your many family and friends or, if it is going to be an intimate liaison, you do not need large rooms. In any case, make sure that the meters are more than enough.
Let’s talk about the extras
Last but not least: the economy! In addition to being the best value for money, ask how the theme of lighting and adaptation of your wedding decoration ideas works, that of the assembly services, the open bar, parking, cancellation and security insurance.
