What to Look For in a Wedding Venue

Posted by Nabin Shaw on February 21st, 2020

Looking for a wedding venue in Austin? Choosing your wedding venue is one of the most important decisions you’ll make around your big day. Before you decide where to tie the knot, here are a few things you need to consider:

Be Prepared

Before you can start the planning you need to be  prepared. The first thing you should do is create a binder as well as a digital copy of all your notes. It is convenient to have both styles of organization at your fingertips. Pick up your favorite bridal magazines and begin browsing for ideas. Sites like Pinterest also will help give you inspiration. Once you have your accounts created, binder ready, and magazines in hand you have officially started the process of  preparation.

Figure Out Your Guest List

This might seem like a step that can wait until later, however it actually is something you and your fiancé need to discuss right away. Create two main lists and a third optional list. The first list is comprised of people you absolutely must have at your wedding. The second list is people you would like to additionally invite and the third includes people you would like to attend but would not make or break your big day. It is important to have these lists so that you have estimates on guest totals. When you are selecting a venue, the number of guests could greatly sway your decision.

What Type Of Wedding Venue Do You Want?

As a couple, you must sit down and take a few things into consideration. First you need to consider the time of year you would like to get married. Second, you need to consider the style of wedding you are going for, and third, you must take your guest list into consideration. Outdoor weddings are ideal for allowing more space and a more natural feel when the weather is nice. It’s a good idea to have a backup sheltered location in case the weather changes. Likewise, outdoor locations such as woods, arboretums, barns, and vineyards are beautiful but can be difficult for elderly guests to easily maneuver due to the terrain. If grandma and grandpa are on your must-attend list then you need to also take their comfort into consideration for your nuptials and celebration.

Remember, don’t let yourself get so caught up in the planning and chaos that you forget to enjoy the experience. If you stay organized and open to changing with complications that may arise you will not be disappointed and have the planning memories to last you a lifetime.
