Once the wedding planning begins, looking for a place to hold a venue can be an overwhelming task. Do the Bride a Favor published their 3 steps for selecting a wedding venue. Prompted by Baltimore Sun's article “The Search for the Wedding Venue Begins,” Do the Bride a Favor offered their help to making the process a little easier.
Do the Bride a Favor discusses making a plan to select a good location. Their steps are as follows:
Make a Plan-
A key question when making the plan is,“How many people will be in attendance?” A total of 500 guests might be too large for a smaller venue, like a hotel side room. On the other hand having 50 guests at a grand, country club might be too expensive. Is there a theme that the bride has in mind? Think about what will be needed for decorations and any special events for the evening, like a dance floor or a big screen for a slideshow.
Pick a Convenient Location-
Where will the ceremony be held? It's best to have the reception closer to the ceremony area. Do the Bride a Favor said, “Having the reception close to the ceremony saves the guests and wedding couples a lot in traveling fees. Also, if there are more guests, traveling can easily become disorganized and messy.” However, some venues may offer discounts on transport or transportation services for guests.
Call in Advance-
When major areas of the wedding have been discussed and planned out, the next step is to make the call. This should ideally be done months in advance because popular places may be booked very quickly. “If the date of the ceremony is around a holiday, it might be especially busy for a venue during these times,” Do the Bride a Favor cautioned.
When making the call, it's important to know what kind of services the venue offers its guests. Does the hall have accommodations like vending machines and seating areas for early arrivals? It is also important to mention that some hotels, for an extra fee, may offer personalized wedding favors on behalf of the bride and groom and hotel. This might be a great service to take advantage of.
Choosing a venue should be done carefully and wisely. Do the Bride a Favor says to consider what is desired for the ceremony and reception and make the decision based on a place that can best fulfill these needs.
