3 Tips To Help Select The Right Wedding Venue For You

Are you at the part of your wedding planning where you need to select a venue, and you are not sure where to start? It will help to know the following tips for selecting the right venue for your wedding. 

Research Each Venue Before You Visit

It's always a good idea to do some research on each venue before you visit. You'll want to read reviews, look at pricing, and get a feel for what the venue is like from people that have used it. This will allow you to tour the venue with a bit more insight than if you visited it without knowing anything. 

You can use the info that you learned to ask questions during your tour of the venue. You may even be able to ease some concerns that would normally come up when you do your research after you visit. For example, if a review stated that the venue was too small, you can see it in person with that concern in mind. 

Limit The Amount Of Venues You Tour In A Day

You'll want to make a list of your top venues that you want to tour, rather than simply tour venue after venue. Much like if you are touring houses and see too many homes at once, it can be easy to confuse venues when you see them all in a row. Try to limit yourself to viewing a couple of venues in a single day. Then go back and make notes about what you liked and didn't like, and eliminate venues when you find something better that you like. 

Stick To Your Budget

It is easy to spend too much money on your wedding venue, which is why you want to set a budget and stick to it. Make sure that you understand the total cost of renting the venue, which includes the rental of the space, catering, and all those miscellaneous costs that add up. You don't want to be caught off guard when the bill comes and discover that you are way over budget because of the venue you selected. 

It's a good idea to get a copy of the contract for the venue, even if you are not sure that you want to sign it. This can let you know more details about the venue when it comes to pricing that may not have been apparent at first glance.
