One of the most important things when it comes to planning a wedding is to choose a venue. After all, your wedding venue is what sets the scene and lies the foundations of the entire day.

You may think that finding a venue is easy, however, this isn’t always the case. You can all too easily rush the decision or spend too much time pouring over all the options that are open to you.

So, if you are finding the hunt for a venue tricky, why not take a look through the things that you should think about when choosing a wedding venue for your wedding day?

When you know you know

Have you heard when you put on your wedding dress that you just know that is the right one for you? The same is true for venues. When you take a look around and find yourself picturing how your wedding day will look, then maybe this is a sign that the venue is the right one for you and that the search is over.

How many people can the venue take? 

What kind of wedding do you want? Do you dream of plenty of guests? Or do you prefer the idea of something low key and intimate? The venue that you choose should match the amount of guests that you want. Too small a venue and you are going to have to cut down on your guest list and too big a venue and your nearest and dearest are going to feel swamped with space when they are there.

Is it easy to get to? 

Whilst location shouldn’t be the be all and end all of your wedding venue choice, it is something that you should keep in mind. It should be easy to get to for the majority of your guests, and even better, have it close to an airport or train station if you think people will be travelling from far away. Also, are there plenty of places for people to stay for the night? This will be an important consideration for many couples.

Does it fit with your theme?

When you decide the theme for your wedding day this is likely to be the basis for lots of the other decisions you are going to make. Including your venue. If you have a rather strict theme in mind, such as country chic or maybe vintage charm, then it makes sense for your venue to fit in with this particular theme that you have in mind.

As you can see, choosing a venue for your wedding day need not be the hardest decision you have ever had to face. All you need to do is keep these important things in mind and you are sure to have the absolute perfect setting for the wedding of your dreams.
