Your wedding venue is the first major decision you will make about planning your wedding day. Booking your dream venue puts everything on your timeline in motion. We put together some tips from wedding planners to help you choose your wedding venue and bring the dream to life.
Finding the Dream location
Location is probably the most important place to begin. You will want to host your wedding at an accessible venue with adequate parking; however, there is far more to consider. You wedding venue should be a meaningful place. This is where you will make your memories. Make them somewhere magical. Think about your wedding photography and look for the picturesque backdrop. Once you have the pin on the map in a dreamy location, begin to narrow down the search for the wedding venue that matches the one in your dreams.
Services at the Wedding Venue
Services can make all the difference in the outcome of your day. Many venues offer an enchanting space, but not all deliver the entire experience. Host your wedding at a venue with an in-house design team and décor options. An in-house professional wedding designer can provide a level of service beyond the space to create your vision. Choose a wedding venue that can customize packages, giving you exactly what you want and nothing less. There are essential services to consider, such as furnishings, fine china, banquet staff, bar services, food managers and day of event coordination services. A survey of wedding planners reveals that hosting your wedding at an all-inclusive wedding venue can provide savings and reduce the stress of planning.
Coordinator at Your Wedding Venue
The day of event coordinator carries out functions as their title indicates. A coordinator works with your entire vendor team to make sure your event follows your timeline. They oversee the procession, manage guests, organize seating and manage ceremonial events. Wedding planners recommend an in-house day of event coordinator or working with one that has an established relationship with the wedding venue.
Wedding Team at Your Wedding Venue
Your wedding day will involve an entire wedding team. The food experience, entertainment, officiant, cake and all the little details come together with a collaborative effort. It is important to hire professionals with a solid reputation. Choose a wedding venue that can help you build your entire wedding team in one place. A venue with vendor connections can save you time and money throughout the wedding planning process. The collaboration between vendors and an all-inclusive wedding venue can make planning your dream wedding effortless.
