Selecting a wedding facility is by no means an easy task. Between selecting a location that is feasible for all guests, within your budget, and getting everything you have long dreamt for, it can be a grueling process. To help select the ideal location for the wedding, here are five questions you will want to answer.
1. What is the travel distance for guests?
No wedding is going to be lucky enough to have all of the guests living in the same city or state. Therefore, it is vital you take into consideration where guests will be traveling from. If a majority of the guests are coming from a certain area, you may want to consider having the wedding facility closer to the guests. While it is your wedding, it is important the people you love most are there to share the experience with you.
2. Is the facility reputable?
There are far too many facilities and locations to have a wedding at for you to settle. Look into the background of the facility and what others have to say about it. Ask friends and family members what they recommend and if they know anyone that has gotten married at this particular facility.
3. Is it the right size?
One of the most important things to take into consideration is the size of the wedding facility compared to the number of guests that will be coming. If you rent out a large ballroom and only have a few guests coming, it may seem overboard. At the same time, you need to make sure there are enough seats for all of the guests if it is a larger wedding.
4. What are the bar policies?
Weddings are a family event but also a time to relax and have fun with friends and family members. Many weddings do have bars whether they are open bars or paid. Check to see what the bar policy is for the facility to ensure what you are looking for is possible.
5. What services does the venue provide?
The final thing to look at with the wedding facility is what kind of services they offer. Are they going to help with the planning of your reception? Will they offer discounts and packages for catering and music? Do they have a crew that will decorate the facility and clean up following the wedding? Little things like this can help smooth over the process to ensure there is as little stress as possible.
