There are many things to consider when planning a wedding, but one of the biggest decisions you will need to make is the venue. It could be that you haven’t considered this yet but it’s important to think about your budget and the location as well as the size of the venue. If your wedding venue is too small or too big it could result in you having to change your guest list.
For wedding venues, Nottingham is one of the most popular cities in the UK as it offers various options for your big day. But before you go ahead and plan your special occasion, here are a few things to think about when picking the perfect venue.
Be Budget Smart
Before you decide on the venue, think about what you can realistically afford. Try to work under your maximum budget, that way if you do go over (which you might!) you won’t be worried about your finances.
Weddings are expensive, there’s no denying it, but they are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share your special day with everyone you love. It’s easy to assume that the venue will be the most expensive part of the day, but try to remember that you will have a lot more to pay for so be budget smart.
The Right Location?
You will undoubtedly want all the people you love at your wedding, but if it’s in the middle of nowhere it might be difficult to ensure that happens.
If you choose a location closer to the city it means that family and friends travelling in for the big day will have the option to stay in a hotel or get a train, bus or taxi, making logistics much easier for everyone.
Is There Enough Space?
It’s often difficult to get all the people you love in the same room; your wedding gives you this unique opportunity and allows you to spend what should be the best day of your life with those closest to you.
The guest list, venue and budget almost depend on one another. If you have a long guest list then a larger venue would be better, but if your budget means you can only have a small venue then your guest list may need to be shortened.
Visit at Least Twice
When it comes to your wedding venue you need to be absolutely sure that the one you pick is right for you and your partner. After all, it’s important to remember that changing your mind can be difficult if you’ve already paid a deposit.
Visiting the venue at least twice allows you to imagine how you want it to look and it will also give you complete confidence that you have chosen well.
Choosing the right venue can undoubtedly be a stressful part of the wedding planning process, but by following these suggestions you will soon be well on the way to making the experience a lot easier and more enjoyable for you.
