The ring is on your finger, and it’s more beautiful than you imagined. There is something so magical about the first few weeks of engagement. Although this is an exciting time, many brides feel overwhelmed about the decisions ahead. There are calls to make, venues to research, and flowers to choose from. Booking your wedding venue will set the stage for the rest of the planning process!
Think About Your Guest Experience
When a guest steps into your wedding venue, what do you want them to experience? Writing out a guest list is one of the first things you should do after you get engaged. Even if you know you’d like to choose an intimate wedding venue, this will give you clarity for the planning process. Talk to your fiance about their expectations. Although these conversations aren’t always easy, it’s best to get an accurate estimate of guests before you pick your wedding venue. Once you know the number of invites you’ll be sending, you can look for certain ceremony sites and venues by their capacities.
Consider Your Style As A Couple
The wedding venue acts as the foundation for your big day. The venue you choose will reflect your style and set the stage for the rest of your vision. Although you will be able to customize certain elements, pay attention to the qualities you can and can’t change. While some brides dream of an intimate wedding venue with countryside views, others are looking for a rustic barn to celebrate their special day. Think about the things that are most important to you on your wedding day, and make a list of what you would like to prioritize.
It’s important to read the reviews for each wedding venue that you consider. This provides an inside look at the venue and how previous brides have experienced their special day. It can also spark questions that you might want to ask your wedding coordinator as you start planning. Olde Homestead has over 200+ reviews, and you can read them here!
Take a Tour
Sometimes it’s difficult to picture your wedding day from photos online. It’s always a good idea to tour your venue in person. Imagine the space filled with friends and family. Picture yourself walking down the aisle. Consider the colors that you might choose and how they would look in that space. A tour also gives you the opportunity to ask questions about your specific vision. Finding the right venue can be a process, but it means you are one step closer to your special day!
