Is it finally time for you and your future spouse to select your outdoor wedding venue? Picking a venue for your special occasion is a vital part of your wedding planning. In fact, most brides and grooms end up spending about half of their entire wedding budget on the venue. This means your venue is likely the most important element of your planning process. No pressure! In all seriousness, picking the perfect outdoor wedding venue can be hard. To help make this enormous task a little easier, here are several great tips to consider when making your selection.
1. Make a Must-Have List
Sit down with your girl or guy-to-be and have a serious conversation about what both of you absolutely must have in a wedding venue. This should include price points, view preferences, facilities, and capacity limitations. Don’t leave anything out. Compiling this list will help you narrow down potential options as your search progresses.
2. Take Tours
One of the best ways to determine if a venue is right for you and your wedding is to schedule a tour. Most outdoor wedding venues offer tours. You should take advantage of this opportunity to see the facilities and ask any questions you have. Remember to bring your must-have list along with you! You can use it as a checklist or to help you remember important questions you want to ask.
3. Do the Math
Not all outdoor venue are made equal. Some options offer a beautiful setting for your ceremony, but don’t provide facilities for bridal party prep or the reception. If you go with a venue like this, remember that you’ll need to budget in additional rental locations. Be thorough. Take the time to add up and compare costs between your venue options before making your final selection.
