Perhaps one of the biggest decisions an engaged couple can make is what venue to book for your wedding. Sometimes choices can seem overwhelming, but have no fear: there are, in fact, some easy ways to narrow down your choices. The size of your planned affair can determine where you book your wedding; however, most venues can accommodate more intimate affairs in addition to larger, more elaborate receptions. However, knowing how many guests you plan to invite is a good first step in determining where you’ll host your wedding. Further, location, atmosphere, budget, and, of course, availability can also contribute to your decision. Most venues—especially the more popular ones—recommend you book your wedding as soon as you set a date. Wait too long, and you just might miss out on the wedding of your dreams—or at least the venue you had your heart set on. Book your wedding as early as possible.
How Do You Choose A Wedding Venue?
When you choose a wedding venue, it’s a very personal choice for the bride and groom. If you live near the ocean, do you want your wedding by the water? A garden venue is popular, while some couples would rather hold their wedding at a hotel for convenience. Where you have your wedding will help you set the theme for your event. It’s also important to have your reception at a location that is used to having weddings. Putting on a wedding reception is not for the faint of heart; it requires knowledge, patience and experience. Wedding receptions need to work like clockwork, and venues that have years of experience, like Los Willows, will help the bride and groom to relax, rather than worry about minute details. If you want your wedding reception to go off without a hitch, then it might be best to choose a wedding venue that has several years experience.
