Planning Your Wedding? How To Avoid Problems When Choosing The Venue


If you're in the process of planning your wedding, and it's time to choose the venue, you've got your work cut out for you. After the wedding dress, the venue is the biggest decision you'll need to make when planning your wedding. If you've decided not to work with a wedding planner, you'll be doing all the legwork for yourself, which can be a daunting task. Here are four useful tips that will help you get through the process.

Always Have a Second Choice

When it comes to choosing a wedding venue, the most important thing you can do is have a second choice. The last thing you want is to lock yourself into one single option. If you do that, you won't be prepared for possible complications. However, if you've got a list of two or three possible choices for your wedding venue, you won't be left facing a disaster when your first choice is booked solid, too expensive, or just doesn't suit your needs.

Think About Your Out-of-Town Guests

If you're planning your wedding, and you know your guest list includes quite a few out-of-town guests, you need to consider their needs when making your final choice for a venue. This is particularly important if your out-of-town guests won't be staying with you while they're in town. When choosing a venue, it's important that you choose one that has nearby accommodations for your out-of-town guests, including hotels and restaurants. That way, your guests will be less likely to get lost while in town for your wedding.

Get the Details on the Alcohol Beverages

When you're choosing the venue for your wedding, and you're planning on serving alcoholic beverages, it's crucial that you find out about the permit and licensing requirements. Not all wedding venues are licensed for alcoholic beverages. If the one you've chosen isn't licensed, they'll need additional time to secure a temporary permit to serve alcohol at your wedding. If they're unable to secure a temporary permit, you'll need enough time to find another venue for your wedding.

Be Sure Your Quote Includes All the Extras

If you're trying to stick to a budget for your wedding, you'll need to make sure you keep close tabs on the pricing details for the venue you've selected. You'll want to make sure that the quote you receive includes everything you'll need for your big day. The last thing you want is to choose a venue based on the initial quote, only to find that the price doesn't include things like tables, chairs and linens. When you sit down to discuss your wedding, be sure to ask for a quote that includes the venue plus the additional services you'll be needing.
