Whether you’re just engaged or have been for a while, every girl has an image of what they want their big day to look like, but now that it actually comes down to it, do you actually know what you’re looking for?

It’s the most special day of your life so lets make it easy and break it down. Ask yourself the below questions and cross options off your list until you have the perfect venue for your day. 

Communicate…

Talk with your other half and see if you both have the same idea of what you would like – do you want a contemporary summer wedding? Or a traditional

 Church wedding? Also discuss budget because that will determine where you start looking!

Where to begin?

First choose either a civil ceremony or a church wedding. This will help to break down what venues you can start to go visit.

Location, location, location 

Once you have figured out the type of wedding you would like, start looking at locations. If you have a civil ceremony – do you want to travel and have it abroad? If you do get married in a church, consider where your reception will be -  you don’t want it to be too far away for guests to travel after.

Look into the type of building you would like to get married in, ie modern, castle, quaint. You also need to consider guest numbers – you might have to prepare to alter the list slightly in case your perfect venue can’t fit everybody in.

Once you have chosen a place, look at the location options – a lot of places offer inside or outside ceremonies, which is completely your own preference. This will probably depend on the time of year and weather.

Practicality

When you look at different options, look into little details. Find out the size and numbers each location can hold. Also look at the practicality of the room – can it fit enough tables? Is there enough space? Does it have a bar? Keep in mind suitable areas for photographs too.

Personal touches

When looking for the perfect venue, find a package to suit your requirements such as food, drinks and entertainment. Many hotels can cater food to your exact requirements and even make dishes named after you and your other half!

If in doubt, ask your bridal party or wedding planner to help out. They can always give good insight and help you make the right decision.
