8 Factors to consider when searching for the right venue for your wedding

When it comes to choosing a wedding venue, there’s so much to consider. To find the right venue you need to think about the location, transportation, possible accommodation, as well as your guest list and your budget! You'll want to check out the venue's packages before you commit to make sure it’s suitable for you. Let's help you find the wedding venue that will bring your wedding dreams to life.

How far in advance should you look at wedding venues? Once you know your preferred dates and budget, as well as your number of guests, you should probably give yourself at least 18 months to start contacting and visiting venues. This will give you plenty of time to sort everything else out ahead of the big day - but booking your wedding venue is the most important bit!

How much is a wedding venue? The cost of your wedding venue can vary. You could consider a dry-hire venue, where you bring everything in to keep costs down, or you could look for a wedding venue that offers packages that include lots of extras, like decorative items, entertainment and catering. Be honest with the venues you discuss your wedding budget. They will be able to suggest packages and options that suit your budget. The average cost of hiring a wedding venue in the UK is £5,406, according to our National Wedding Survey.

How do I choose a wedding venue? Start by thinking about the location of your wedding venue. Does the venue have the capacity to fit all your guests, is there parking for everyone, do they offer accommodation, etc? Do their prices fit your overall budget? Do their wedding packages cover everything you need? Consider your wedding day style. Does the venue work with the theme or style you have in mind for your wedding? The right wedding venue will bring your wedding vision to life.

What are the venue's limitations? Every venue sets their own rules and every wedding has its own unique needs. Don't leave out any details when explaining your vision for your wedding. The venue may have certain limitations that you may need to consider before booking, such as noise or time limitations, extra fees that aren't included in the total booking price, not allowing outside suppliers or catering, and even decoration limitations.

What kind of entertainment is or isn't allowed? Some venues may limit the use of fireworks, confetti or other forms of entertainment and extras that may form part of your wedding plan. That's why it's so crucial to go over every detail with your potential venue before signing. You'll also want to ask if you can bring your own entertainment, as the venue may work with certain musicians, DJs and entertainers.

Is there a special place where the couple can get ready separately? Depending on your plans, you might want to get ready at the venue and having a special room just for you is certainly a bonus. When you visit the venue be sure to view these rooms and if you want photos taken, be sure that it is well-lit. There should be enough space for you, your makeup artist or hair stylist, a friend or two and the photographer.

Who will be the point of contact? Having a good relationship with your venue's person of contact is paramount. They will be able to answer your last minute questions, resolve any doubts and help make the wedding run smoothly. You should have their contact information and be able to reach them easily before you book your venue to ensure good communication from the start.

Is the venue licensed for civil ceremonies? If you'd like to celebrate your ceremony at the same venue, this question is imperative. If they aren't licensed, then you'll have to look for an additional venue to celebrate the ceremony. If that's the case, be sure to update your wedding budget with additional venue fees and possibly transportation for your guests.

Frequently asked questions regarding Wedding Venues

How can I choose the right wedding venue?

Take into consideration the following factors to help you choose the right venue for your wedding: the size of your guest list, the style of wedding you dream of, your budget, the facilities and spaces you'll need for the different parts of your wedding, and the location. You can use the filters on Hitched to narrow your search and start contacting venues. Read their reviews, look at their photo gallery, and read their FAQs to get a first glance at the venue and see if it could suit your needs and vision.

How far in advance should I book the wedding venue?

If you want to be able to book your ideal venue that's within your budget and ticks all the boxes, aim to book 10 to 12 months in advance. You can ask if they can reserve your date if you're still not 100% sure. Now is the time to start contacting venues and save your favourites so you can easily see them in your Hitched Planning Tools.

What are the different types of wedding venues?

Wedding venues encompass a broad range of event spaces: wedding hotels, barns, countryside venues, stately homes, restaurants, historic buildings, vineyards, castles and city venues, to name a few. If you're looking for something off the beaten path, you can search in our Unique and Unusual category.

What are the main wedding banquet moments?

While the banquet timings and details vary from wedding to wedding, they typically begin with drinks and canapes. After a short time, the couple departs for their photos. When then the couple returns they can have group photos taken. The guests then take their seats to enjoy a three-course meal and speeches. The banquet ends with the cake cutting and first dance!

What types of spaces are available for my wedding reception?

There are a wide variety of venue spaces for your wedding reception. On Hitched, you can filter by venue type or by the facilities the venue provides. Perhaps you dream of an open-air reception. In case the weather doesn't cooperate, you can find venues that can provide a marquee. You'll also find venues with specialised reception facilities, dance floors, in-house or external catering and so much more. We're sure you'll find the ideal space for your wedding reception on Hitched.
