A couple’s wedding day is largely considered the most special, memorable and important day of their life. And so, it is obviously of the utmost importance that everything runs smoothly and that the day is like a fairytale for the happy bride and groom.
Obviously, one of the most crucial things that needs to be considered when planning a wedding is where it will take place. The venue of your wedding will dictate the entire mood and feel of the day, and this will transfer to the mood of your guests. Therefore, it is vital that you pick somewhere which suits both of your personalities and tastes, because if it doesn’t then it will certainly show. You also need to make sure that your wedding invitations reflect the style of venue you are going for so that they create excitement about your special day.
To help you make a decision regarding your venue, there are certain things you should contemplate and think about when looking and considering different wedding venues.
As mentioned you need to go for a venue which reflects both of your personalities and thus the aura, design and theme of the venue is essential. Do you want something historic and traditional? Do you want somewhere elegant and picturesque? Do you want somewhere which is warm, intimate and cosy? Do you want somewhere luxurious and lavish? Or do you want somewhere which screams fun, excitement and happiness?
The general mood and theme which you want for the wedding will dictate what sort of place you choose for your wedding venue. For instance, if you want somewhere traditional and historic then you may consider getting married in a castle. On the other hand, if you want something intimate, warm and cosy then you may decide to get married on the beach.
Aside from the venue, there are plenty other things you need to consider when planning this special moment in you and your partner’s life. This includes what sort of entertainment you are going to have. A lot of people hire a DJ and some even go for a live band. Do you want to add some other entertainment options into the mix? What about a magician to entertain everyone while they are enjoying the wedding breakfast?
You also need to consider the catering. This can be difficult, especially if you are opting for a sit-down meal, as you need to choose three courses for everyone. The truth is, you are never going to keep everyone happy, so choose what you want to eat, but make sure there is some variety, for example, don’t choose a fish course for the starter and the main in case people don’t eat seafood.
If you and your partner sit down and truly think about the setting you want, elements which you love and what defines you both as individuals, you will then be able to determine which of the wedding venues will suit you the most and thus be the perfect place to host your big day.
