Touring the Wedding Venue

Wedding Venue

You have probably been dreaming about your wedding day for quite a while. Taking a tour of the wedding venue is an opportunity to visualize the space, meet with wedding designers and determine whether the venue can create a space as magical as the dream you created. Deciding on a venue is not easy, and there are a few things to consider before you do. Everything from the location to the atmosphere are important factors. We are sharing a few tips for planning your wedding venue.

The Reason Behind the Tour

There is a reason behind a tour of the wedding venue. This important first step takes you behind the scenes. It allows you to walk down the aisle, stand in the center of the reception ballroom and visualize all of the design elements. Touring your venue in person provides an immersive experience. Your tour is an opportunity to meet wedding designers and planners, view mock table settings and samples of décor, gain inspiration, and begin the planning process. The interior and exterior aesthetic of your wedding venue are equally important. Take notice of the backdrop you are choosing for your wedding day. Consider the atmosphere and places for photography. The location should be significant and meaningful to you and your partner.

Designing the Wedding Venue

Not every wedding venue includes the furnishings and designs, but yours should. Not only will it save you thousands in the process of avoiding expensive rentals, but the all-inclusive concept eliminates the stress of designing an empty space. If you book an empty venue, you will need to rent furnishings and designs, and reinvent the entire space. A blank canvas requires extensive labor and expensive rentals. Book a venue with professional wedding designers, furnishings and décor. The everything included concept of an all-inclusive venue makes the fairy tale affordable.

Think of an interior designer and how they might enter your space and reimagine it. A wedding designer does the same for your wedding venue. They create model demonstrations or mock table settings to provide an example of ideas. Designers use lights, colors and various textures to create desired effects. Choosing an all-inclusive wedding venue with an in-house design team eliminates the need to hire expensive designers, rent tables, chairs and décor. The concept delivers the venue, furnishings, décor, draperies, lighting, chinaware, staff and services in an affordable package.

Centerpieces in the Wedding Venue

The centerpieces in the wedding venue are important pieces of décor. The vases, candelabras, candles, lanterns and floral arrangements create the theme and tone within the space. Flowers seem to be part of every wedding, and almost every centerpiece. Regardless of the type of wedding centerpieces you choose, you will likely choose wedding flowers to accent your table décor. Flowers are romantic and expressive. They provide a certain energy to the room and define your space. Make sure your wedding venue includes a complete design package with centerpieces and floral designs.

Wedding Venue

Bridal and Groom’s Suite

The bridal and groom’s suites are important spaces within the wedding venue. The bridal party and the groom’s entourage require a separate space to prepare and make special memories at the wedding venue. Those next big steps into the wedding venue and into a new life should begin in a comfortable space.

Create a List

You should create a list of things you want your wedding venue to have. It might be important for you venue to have a ceremony space and reception area. Flexibility and space are important details to add to the list. Determine the maximum capacity and possible layout for your ceremony and reception space. Make sure there is a bridal and groom suite onsite. Find out how many hours the venue will be available during the event, and before. If you need extra time, you should know whether booking extra hours is a possibility. Create a list of what is important to you, and make sure the wedding venue can deliver.
