How to Choose a Wedding Venue
When it comes to choosing a wedding venue, there’s so much to consider. You need to think about the location of your wedding venue - will your guests be able to get to it easily, or will overnight accommodation need to be arranged? It’s also important to think about your budget when finding the right venue for your wedding. Check out the packages the wedding venue offers before you commit to make sure it’s suitable for you. You also need to think about your wedding day style - you’ll need to choose a venue that works with the theme or style you have in mind for your wedding. The right wedding venue will bring your wedding vision to life.
How Much is a Wedding Venue?
The cost of your wedding venue can vary depending on a number of things. 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 talk to about how much you have in your wedding budget - they will be able to advise 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.
What Makes a Good Wedding Venue
There are a few key things that make for a good wedding venue, but this will depend on what you want from your choice of venue. If you want a big party, make sure there’s plenty of space to dance, the right acoustics for your music and that you don’t have to have your sound limited too much. If a good wedding is determined by the catering, look for wedding venues that have bespoke menu options and creative chefs. Above all though, a good wedding venue is one that works with you to bring your wedding vision to life and helps you to have a stress-free, enjoyable wedding planning experience.
What to Ask Your Wedding Venue
There are lots of key questions to ask your wedding venue, but if you’re not ready to book yet and you’re just exploring wedding venues, make sure you ask how many guests you can invite, whether they offer packages, what their availability is around the time period you’re looking to book and if you can hold a date, and how long for!
How Far in Advance Should You Look at Wedding Venues
This depends on how soon you want to get stuck into planning after you get engaged! It can take a while to find a venue you love, so there’s no harm in browsing venues as soon as you get engaged.
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 venues with a view to book one. 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!
