What should be thought of when you decide to choose a venue for your wedding? A really good place but not fit on your budget? The one with best view and suit to your budget but not enough to accommodate your wedding guests? Or you are too confused to determine everything?
I have a few tips to help you determine the wedding venue that suits best for you, lovebirds!
First thing first, decide your maximum budget from the beginning. Build your own wall to avoid things run unexpectedly. And by knowing your budget, you will know which venues are available for you. By determining the budget first, it will automatically filter the venue itself for the price range that you are sure of. Therefore, you will not be bothered by the debt or expense that is swollen to think about post wedding later.
Make sure you know how many guests you will invite. Why? When you know the RSVPs, you can estimate or ask for expert’s help to calculate whether your number of guests is enough to be accommodate in venue that you choose. Okay, the venue you choose can accommodate 100 people, but there’s no way you invite the exact same amount of people that venue has maximum space. It will be dull. Too crowd. Not conducive. Trust me. This applies vice versa, if the venue is too big but only a few guests come it can be a little too empty. But way better in this case, because you can still adjust your decoration to how the number of guests.
Type of your wedding. Either your wedding will be ceremony only or will it has a dinner reception, it is another thing to be consider when choosing a venue. You must be have imagine what will your wedding look like. Almost everyone has their own wedding dream. For example, you dream about having your wedding ceremony on a super beautiful cliff, and you already know which cliff venue you will choose, but your number of guests are big, and you will also have a dinner reception, okay, all you have to make sure is whether the venue can accommodate these two agenda, or you can only do one of them, for example, the ceremony only? Again, consider these things by asking for expert’s help, or if you happen to direct booking the venue, ask the salesperson, ask for the plus minus about your concern.
Decorations. After you know what kind of wedding day you will make, you definitely need décor, right? Decoration is no less important to think about when the time to choose a venue come. For example, you want to have a dance floor, when it’s too big but your venue doesn’t have a flat platform or let say the venue is tilted, or surrounded by coconut trees, or if you want to use pyro when you do your first dance, but the venue is low-roofed. There’s nothing worse than that. Think about it. Ask as many question as you need. If you stick to what your decorations will look like but there’s no solution to your problem to adjust between decoration and venue, it means that the venue is not suits you. This is why you have to consider many things at the beginning. To get more inspiration about wedding venue you can visit to our collection of bali wedding venue category page
If there are 2 venues, don’t choose the venues which will take more than 2 hours drive apart. There are some people who wants to hold a wedding in two different places for the ceremony and the dinner reception. For example, you want your wedding ceremony to be held in the cliff in the Uluwatu area or in the forest in the Ubud area, and your dinner reception wants to be held on the beach in Seminyak or in the villa in Nusa Dua area. Wherever that is, whatever the venue type is, make sure that the distance between your venues is reachable and (if you can) make sure your guests get the accommodation they need especially if your wedding is a destination wedding.
