Choosing Your Venue: What’s Right For You?

First things first. After you get engaged, where do you start? Everyone is always full of opinions, and that can get overwhelming fast. So, we’re here to help ease that stress with a solid suggestion: Choose your venue first!

Why Is Choosing My Venue the First Step?

Each venue will have its own set of rules and preferences. If you pick your Catering or DJ services first, you may have chosen vendors that aren’t allowed at the venue you want for your special day. Choosing your venue first gives you a solid foundation to start from.

How Do I Know Which Venue is Right For Me?

You will know it when you see it – no seriously, go see it first! Check out the bridal and groom suites, the different wedding ceremony sites and reception areas, and see if there is a rain plan in place. Ask questions! What décor restrictions they have, what time you will need to be off the property, how late can you start your ceremony, maximum guest count, etc.

One thing to always request is the venue’s list of preferred vendors. This curated list will have vetted vendors for you to pick from, saving you loads of time in the planning department. To help kick off your search for your big day, here are some gorgeous venues you can schedule tours with!
