Booking a Wedding Site for Your Event
While some sites may allow walk-in visitors, it is always best to call ahead and make an appointment. Not only does this ensure that the venue is available for a tour, it allows the bride and groom to have the uninterrupted attention of the wedding coordinator. When a choosing a reception venue, make sure of the costs and any additional offers available from the venue. If the ceremony will be held on site, then get confirmation of locations for the ceremony. Also, what is the plan in case of bad weather? Is the facility able to accommodate the ceremony inside? A venue that can offer all, if not, most of your services is very convenient. Such as Catering, bar, cake, flowers, coordinator, etc.
Do your research for a outdoor ceremony. Will it be dusk or dark at the time of the vows? Keep in mind your out of town guests. Give them time to travel back and forth without being stressed for your event. Book your honeymoon after booking your reception. Consider leaving on your honeymoon the day after the event. Leaving right afterwards is exhausting to the Bride and Groom.
Be sure to book your reception venue first before your other vendors to ensure availability. Prime dates such as springtime, Valentine's Day or Christmas will book quicker than others. If you have a particular date that you have to have, no matter what. Remember, which ever date you choose, it will be your anniversary for the rest of your life. Make sure you get the date you want. Booking at least a year in advance should ensure that you get the date you prefer.
You will know when walk into the "right" venue. Your heart will tell you that this is your wedding site.
