Hi everyone! I hope wedding planning is going well. With the start of engagement season, and wedding show season, I know many of you are out looking for venues. This is such an important step in the wedding planning journey that I thought I would write a blog post with some tips to consider BEFORE you book your venue.
Lets start with some obvious ones:
1. Availability: Before you go on your venue tour, make sure you check that they have your date available. Venue's book up quickly and I don’t want you to waste your time. I do recommend having a few days you are interested in. The more flexible you are, the easier this will be. Of course it goes without saying, if you are open to a Friday or Sunday, or an off season Saturday, the rental fees are usually considerably less.
2. Price: Speaking of budget, I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a budget, with approximate figures worked up for each category of the budget, BEFORE you book anything....
