Selecting the Right Wedding Venue

You’ve experienced that just-right feeling of finding “the one!” You may even have your eye on the perfect dress. Now, for one of the most important details–the venue!

There are several things to take into consideration when choosing your perfect venue. First, it’s important to create your budget and make a list of possibilities based upon it. Next, determine your guest list and decide how much you can spend per head. Once you are ready to narrow down your venues, create a list of pros and cons. What is included in the price? Is there wheelchair accessibility for handicapped friends or family members? Is there free parking? When ready, call the top three venues on your list and check if your wedding date is available. Once you determine which venues meet your needs and have your date available, schedule a tour of the top venues on your list.
