The choice of wedding venues can sometimes be a little overwhelming, but if you keep your head and work through it logically it’s a great benefit.

A few tips to help you get started

  • Stick to your wedding venue budget.
  • Get an idea on the number of guest before looking at venues.
  • Check the availability of your short list of preferred wedding venues.
  • Try to stay local if you can, there is normally a great venue 15 minutes away if you look.
  • Plan for your wedding season (e.g. do you need a plan B for rainy weather?).
  • Minimize the travel from ceremony and reception.
  • Investigate the indoor and outdoor flow options for the venue.
  • Look at the arrangements and options for catering and entertainment.
