January top wedding venue tip: Choosing a wedding venue within budget
Your wedding budget will more than likely determine the style of wedding venue that you can afford. Assume that approximately 50-60% of your wedding budget will be directed at your wedding venue hire and catering, giving you a great starting point when it comes to receiving quotes, visiting venues and deciding how best to plan your special day.
If your heart is set on a specific wedding venue that is very slightly out your budget, consider a mid-week wedding date, a low season wedding or reducing your guest numbers. Your wedding day will revolve around your venue so ensure that you are both comfortable with your final choice and have confidence that the venue team will do an incredible job during the lead up to, and on your wedding day.
