Tricks Pick Wedding Venue

Before you start looking at the available options, you will want to focus on the number of guests you intend inviting, this will determine the size of the venue that you will need. Bear in mind that the last thing you want to do is choose a venue where you and your guests find yourselves cramped, but at the same time wasted space can make the venue look dull and boring. Focus on your guest numbers to give you an indication on what you will need to accommodate everyone with comfort while still making a great impression.

The next step is to take a close look at your budget. You are going to have so many different things in your budget from your wedding dress to your transport on the day and flowers and catering to the ceremony and the venue. Set aside a set budget for the venue so you have an idea on what you can spend. Bearing in mind that the more guests you invite the bigger your budget is going to have to be.

Location is essential and this is something you are going to want to spend some time on. Maybe you are planning a destination wedding or maybe you are planning something not to far from home. The main focus is where the venue is located along with ease of access and if you have any guests that are travelling long distances to attend, what accommodation is available in the area. This is why when choosing a location, it’s always worthwhile to focus on a venue that provides accommodation, such as a luxury five star hotel, for example. A place where you and the guests can spend the night, so you know you all have the accommodation you need for the night.

Also when it comes to venue, identify where you could possibly have your wedding photographs taken. Are they near a river or an open space where you can have beautiful pictures taken so you can remember this day fondly for years to come.

Next take a look at any additional services provided by the venue. If you choose a luxury hotel and book one of the function spaces, you may find that they have a team who can help you with everything from the planning of your special day to the catering and waiting staff. They will also be able to provide a bar and bar staff, so those are less things you have to concern yourself about.

Finally, look at the accommodation available for you and your guests. Whether you intend in paying for your guests to stay a night or two or if they are paying for themselves, ensure the venue has enough accommodation so that everyone can stay in one place together. This means the day after the wedding you can all enjoy breakfast together before you jet set off to your honeymoon and start your new life with the person of your dreams.

Pick Wedding Vendor

Here are some things you should look for and carefully consider when choosing a wedding professional:

  • Do they listen to you?
  • Do you feel comfortable talking to them?
  • Do they “make nothing” of you or your ideas?
  • Do they return your calls?
  • Do they understand you? Do you understand them?
  • Are they helpful?
  • Are they as excited about your wedding as you are?
  • What do you think is important? What do they think is important?
  • Do they present problems for you to solve or do they offer solutions to problems?
  • Can they predict potential problems and offer solutions?
  • Do they bother you with technical details that do not concern you?
  • Are they taking care of you?
  • Are they critical of you?
  • Are they critical of others?
  • Do you feel anxious or upset after talking to them?
  • Are they physically ill? (common cold, sore throat, etc.)
  • Are they scattered? (going off in all directions at once.)
  • Give them a simple task to do – Is it done right? Is it done in a timely manner? Is it done at all?
  • Do you like their personality? Would you have them as a friend?
  • How long have they been in business?
  • And finally: What is your budget? – What is their price range? (Though important, this last item is not as important as the service you will be getting… or not getting.)

Ask yourself: “Are these qualities present in the person I am hiring?” or “Are they not present in the person I am hiring?”

You really need to look at this.

You want to put together a great team of vendors who are nice people who can work together. Hiring people after carefully evaluating their personality is almost unheard of. Few people know that personality dictates future behavior. Sure, anyone can have a bad day but a chronically bad attitude in even just one of your wedding vendors could upset the whole team you are putting together.

This not only applies to wedding planning but to business, government and interpersonal relations. Indeed if you were able to weed out of your life those causing you trouble, life would smooth out just like that.

Blissful Wedding

Decide on a location. Do you have your heart set on a destination wedding? That’s great, as long as you’re prepared to incur the added expense of airfare and accommodations (and manage the logistical challenges of long-distance event planning). However, it’s common for destination weddings to have a smaller guest list, which may help balance the budget.

Put the wedding in perspective. Couples beginning a life together will likely have other financial goals, such as paying off student loans, a new car purchase or a down payment on a home. Discuss the priority and ideal timeframe of each goal to know when your financial obligations are due (if you’re a parent, determine if and how much you’ll help). Then, consider how your wedding budget fits in to those other priorities. Consider working with a financial advisor who can provide an objective look at your financial picture.

Determine who’s paying for what. It’s important to have a frank conversation as early as possible to clarify who plans to contribute and how much. If you are receiving a check from another well-wisher be clear on what, if any, expectations are tied to the money given. It’s common for others to want a say in the wedding decisions if they’ve contributed financially. Being clear up front may eliminate awkwardness tied to the gift down the road.

Manage cash flow. Cash flow can be tricky, even when your finances are in great shape. Ensure you understand how each vendor expects to be paid so you can plan your budget accordingly. Some expenses may need to be paid in full to book the services, while others may require a down payment or payment in installments leading up to the wedding.

Enlist a professional planner. If you don’t enjoy rigorous planning, or can’t afford the time it takes, consider hiring a wedding planning professional. While it is an added cost, the right planner will work within your budget to obtain the best vendors and help coordinate the big day.
