How to Select Your Perfect Wedding Venue

The day of your wedding marks the beginning of something new, a coming together of families, and a celebration of your love. While you and your soon-to-be spouse are, of course, the centerpiece of the event, it's imperative to consider the full experience of your big day when it comes to choosing your wedding venue.

Choosing a wedding planner is your first step towards finding the perfect wedding venue and to a smooth and stress-free dream wedding. Zachary Andrew Events is here to ease the effort of finding your perfect wedding location by guiding you through every step of the process. Your wedding planner will ensure that your chosen venue aligns perfectly with your vision.

 

LOCATION

Beach side or city-center, indoor or outdoor, your wedding location requires careful consideration. Your wedding vision and the season for your wedding is the starting point for deciding on a location. If you're going for an urban flair, consider having your wedding on the rooftop of a city skyscraper. Or maybe you're imagining a more romantic, intimate experience. In this case, consider a suburban mansion. Your location options are limitless!

ATMOSPHERE

What is the theme or color scheme for your ideal wedding? Think of the venue as your canvas or blank page. How big is it? What shape? What are the base colors, textures, and feelings defined by each venue that you are considering? Choose a venue that aligns with the atmosphere you wish to create, and work from there. Ask your wedding planner what a venue might look and feel like once it is decorated and filled with guests.

EXPERIENCE AND SPACE

It is necessary to keep in mind the guest count for your wedding, seating arrangements (how many guests will sit at each table, 8? 10?), dance floor, and the kind of experience your wedding will offer all your loved ones who will be attending. You definitely don't want a venue too small, but a space too large may make guests feel disconnected from the action. Again, be sure to discuss the space, and what it has to offer, with your wedding planner before making any final decisions.

 

Are you still torn between a few lovely venue options? Ask for your wedding planner's expertise on what different venues have to offer. Some venues even provide chairs, tables, linens, or china, meaning you would be able to cross a few more items off of your wedding 'to do' list! Your wedding planner will be able to envision your wedding from beginning to end, and will offer invaluable guidance when choosing your perfect venue.
