5 Mistakes to avoid when choosing a wedding venue

A venue holds a very important place in every event. And if the event is a wedding function, then the significance of the venue is very high. Event management companies are generally aware of local venues which they can suggest to their clients so that a personalized, successful event can be designed.

However, sometimes when we plan everything by ourselves, we end up making a few mistakes in the selection of the venue, which can lead to dampening the spirits of enjoyment and entertainment. There are some mistakes which we can avoid when choosing a wedding venue. Read on…

Planning an Event?

1. Keep the Venue Budget Into Consideration


Finalizing a venue as per the planned budget is an important step which should not be overlooked. Some adjustments are fine but if we book a wedding venue which is out of our budget, then the other planned expenses for the wedding start to suffer and putting together the entire experience as planned becomes challenging. So, avoid exceeding the planned wedding venue budget by a huge amount.

2. Do Not Choose the Venue Entirely based on Photographs


We know how overwhelming it is to finally choose only one wedding venue from the shortlisted venues you’ve been thinking about for weeks (if not months). Unless you are planning your wedding in a different country or city, a personal and physical visit to the venue is essential, preferably with your wedding planning team and/or vendors so that everyone shares the same vision, can suggest adjustments and improvements and can collaborate better towards making the vision a reality.

3. Make Sure that the Venue is Perfect by all Parameters

For a successful wedding event, wedding planners or the hosts have to give special attention to every detail.

a. Food holds a special place in every event. The guests who attend the wedding function look forward to having a delicious and hearty meal. Check with the caterer and taste the food before finalizing the menu. This is an important step which can ensure that the guests attending the party go back home with a good taste in the mouth.

b. Restrooms. Do check the restrooms of the venue. The restrooms should be clean and well-maintained so that the guests do not have a bitter experience on the D-Day. If the occasion is being designed in a park or open space where there are no bathrooms, then ensure to install the mobile ones so that the guests are comfortable during the function.

c. Parking. Guests feel most comfortable with well-lit, on-site parking at the wedding venue. Have this in mind when selecting your wedding venue. You wouldn’t want to see your wedding guests worried about the safety of their vehicle that’s parked off-site or on the street.

4. Give Importance to the Decor and Layout of the Event

Many times, people do not give any important consideration for the decoration. Believe us, wedding venue decoration is an integral part of the event and can make or break the event spirit. It is essential to have proper decoration, lighting and drapes in place with nicely decorated buffet and bar tables. The presentation of the food is important and the layout should be impressive so that the guests are attracted to the food area.

Also, make sure that the venue has some pleasing designated areas with or without photo booths, where your guests and even you can get amazing pictures clicked. These are the memories that you will cherish forever, so choose a venue that has great ambience, good location, safe parking, nice layout & lighting. You can top it up with themed wedding décor or add up the elements as per your taste. After all, it’s once in a lifetime experience!

5. Weather Plays an Important Role

Weather plays a crucial role in your wedding. You need to be careful if it starts to rain. Have a backup plan ready to avoid any stress at the last moment. Wet weather not only impacts your day but the entire photographic view as well. You might have an indoor ceremony rather than an outdoor one if the weather forecasts aren’t favourable. Or you can go with a water-proof tent-covered terrace area.

These are a few important things which should not be neglected when choosing a venue for the wedding function. Nowadays, a destination wedding is the latest fad and physically visiting the venue before the function can be a challenging task and add to the expense. Hiring an event manager will give you the peace of mind that all things will be managed by professionals on the D-Day ensuring a successful event.
