Your wedding venue is one - if not the - most important decisions for your big day and once you've found the perfect setting, you must learn how best to utilise the space. Anticipating the conversations you will have with your venue team, the experts at Bijou Wedding Venues return to discuss how to get the most out of your venue for an unforgettable wedding day. 

August top wedding venue tip: Make the most of your whole wedding venue

If you’re hiring a wedding venue exclusively, you’ll have peace of mind that the venue is yours for the whole day (and night, if accommodation is included). Your wedding day will flow as typical weddings do, but to ensure that you’re taking advantage of the whole venue you may wish to speak to the venue team about various entertaining spaces and how best to utilise them. You should also speak to your wedding photographer when it comes to finding the best locations in and around the venue to capture picture perfect wedding memories of you both, with and without your guests. At Bijou Weddings, we have couples following us on social media who celebrated weddings at our venues 10+ years ago. Your wedding venue will remain part of your future for a long time to come, so choosing the perfect venue in terms of style and space is so important.

If you love the idea of an outdoor wedding ceremony, an indoor banquet could be the perfect combination of making the most of your wedding venue, if the weather and venue permit it. Alternatively, an indoor ceremony, outdoor drinks reception and indoor banquet could be equally as wonderful. Speak to the team at your wedding venue about all of your possibilities before you make any final decisions on the flow of your day. Do bear in mind that guest numbers/capacities may have to be taken into consideration when it comes to various entertaining spaces at your venue.
