How To Decide on your Wedding Venue
In almost all cases the first thing a newly engaged couple will consider is the venue..
A wedding venue is a super important first decision, and one that should be particularly well thought out and agreed upon by both the bride and groom. Picking out a wedding venue should be such an exciting time for both parties involved, don’t let it stress you out in the slightest!
When thinking of your venue decision it’s good to consider the theme of your wedding, and think about what vibe of venue would match that theme. In most cases there will be more than one venue to match your desired vibe, so options will be there. Don’t waste time looking at venues that don’t fit the description of your theme. For instance, if you want a rustic or boho wedding a warehouse is the perfect venue (especially The Hackney Warehouse 😉). A lot of venues can be made to fit your vision with the right decor, but its good to consider theme when looking around!
Discuss your budget, and ultimately try to stick to that budget. Budget conversations will obviously depend on who’s paying for the wedding, but be sure you have this set before venue shopping. Don’t let budget scare you, but it can be an issue if it’s not agreed upon by all parties. When discussing budget for a venue, be sure to consider all other prices of decor, plates, bartending etc. because your venue of choice could include these things for cheaper than purchasing them separately.
When picking a venue it is important to have an open conversation with the owner of the venue on packages. Packages can be a very important thing going along with budget because, everything included for $15,000 may seem like a lot of money, but once you decide to purchase all of your decor, plates, linens, etc. It can really add up and become a lot of money. A lot of times venues will discount their packages in order to give the bride a better deal than purchasing everything separately. Keep this in mind when venue shopping!
No matter what venue you choose, you’re big day will be amazing! Just be sure to take your time and really consider what venue will be best for you And your wedding need!
Happy Planning from The Hackney Warehouse!
