Finding the perfect wedding venue can make all of the other details of your wedding planning fall easily into place. The venue should look beautiful, provide certain amenities, and have an event coordinator who will help you through every step of planning. Here are a few important factors to consider when looking for the right wedding venue for you.

Take Care of the Basics
Before visiting event spaces, determine what basic needs your venue must meet. Finalize your guest count so that you’ll know what capacity the venue will have to accommodate. Create a wish list of amenities that the perfect wedding venue would offer, such as a catering kitchen, a sound system, a stage, security, and convenient parking.

Decide on a Style or Theme
While your wedding doesn’t have to have a formal theme, it should have cohesive style or aesthetic. You might want a wedding that’s romantic, modern, elegant, casual, or fun. Your wedding venue and wedding reception venue should reflect this theme.

Visit the Venues More than Once
Most couples visit potential wedding venues only once before making their decision. During your first visit, you’ll be meeting with the venue’s event coordinator and discussing a number of details. In the excitement of the situation, you may not notice certain things about the venue. A second visit, particularly at the same time of day your wedding will occur, can give you an opportunity to catch things you missed the first time.
