Tips on Choosing Wedding Venues

Choosing a wedding venue is a serious consideration for any couple who is planning their big day. It's usually the first challenge that future newlyweds face. When choosing the best space for that event, you have to pay attention to many details. If you forget or overlook something, it can easily happen that one of the most beautiful days in your life won't be an enjoyable experience.

There are so many different choices available out there. The choice will be much easier if you and your partner have common ideas for your wedding. What is important is that you remain consistent with your common desires but that this accompanies your possibilities.

Below is a detailed guide to planning a wedding:

Know Your Guest List


For starters, you should consider your guest list before you talk to any wedding planners. You will need to consider how many people you intend to invite. This will help you find the space that will allow everyone to fit in comfortably. 

A large wedding means a spacious venue. If you go with it, you should know that these venues will open up several weeks before the wedding. You may need to book a room in advance if you want to reserve anything in particular.

Couples with a small guest list will go with something smaller, so their costs will be initially lower. They also have a wider choice, as they can get married in all kinds of venues, from a local bar to the public beach.

Know Your Budget


After compiling the guest list, it is necessary to set the budget. This way, you will know in which direction your search will take place. You will immediately eliminate places that exceed your financial capabilities. 

Within each budget, there is a possible space and arrange it according to your idea. You have to be a little creative and thoughtful. Make a list of everything that you need, and see what's involved in renting the space. Sometimes it is possible to arrange food, drinks, decoration, and even a wedding cake at the price of renting the space. 

Wedding Style


Some couples may be more traditional in their tastes, while others are more modern. That may impact what kind of style you should go for. 

For example, couples who like vintage things will keep well-designed restaurant spaces and ballrooms. Spaces like Milwaukee Wedding Venues are ideal for classical decorations but also for light or laser shows and all kinds of performances.

On the other hand, you might not be considering a traditional wedding. In this case, you may want to go with something non-traditional, like setting tents in a garden or beach, or some unusual places like warehouses or art-galleries.

Indoor or Outdoor

The thing that goes hand-in-hand with how to choose a wedding venue is whether or not you want an indoor or outdoor venue. It can certainly be nice to have both. As for indoor spaces, always give preference to air-conditioned spaces. No one wants to sit in a stuffy space or sweat even while sitting.

Indoor venues are less formal than outdoor ones, and they are often easier to decorate for. Plus, you will probably need permits from local authorities for getting married at some public place like a park or beach.

Comfort and Guest Experience


Your invitees should feel comfortable at any time. That's why you need a venue with high-quality floors and enough room for everyone. Ensure that the table and stage layout provide enough space for people to sit, dance, and buzz around. Check this pagefor some decoration ideas.

For instance, if your wedding takes place at a club, you can ask the club to provide access to the garden or outdoor space. If it gets stuffy inside, guests will enjoy some fresh air. You could set up chairs outside so your guests can relax and take in the ambiance of your venue.


After you have gone through your list and made a note of what is critical to you, it's time to start your quest. Talk to a few people that are in the business and get some feedback. That way, you can get the right guidelines to find a venue that will work well within your budget and in the overall theme of your wedding.
