How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Ceremony Location


Most girls dream about their weddings for much of their lives. They create imaginary weddings with their dolls and then play house with their friends. They skim wedding magazines, picking out the wedding dress, the cake and the colors of their wedding before they even meet the perfect husband. Once you do meet your future husband, your dreams may come true or you may find that your little girl wishes have changed. Either way, a lot of planning goes into the wedding planning process. One of the biggest decisions that you will make is the location of the wedding ceremony and the reception that follows.

There is likely a lot of wedding ceremony places in your city. It can be difficult to narrow down the choices, especially when you have probably not visited all of them. About 40% of brides and grooms to be are looking for unusual venues that better reflect their personality. Most couples do not want their wedding to be generic, and just another wedding to their guests. They want to make the wedding ceremony unique and just like them as a couple. They may achieve this with the choice of wedding ceremony places or with the decorations they choose for their wedding ceremony and reception.

Nearly half (48%) of couples research reception venues online. There are just too many wedding ceremony places available to be able to visit all of them in person. Most couples will narrow down the places they want to visit during their online searches and then visit those venues in person. From there, they will look for a banquet hall that meets their specific needs and personalities. If they intend to get married outdoors, they will likely look for something that has a beautiful backdrop for the wedding ceremony. If they want to marry indoors, they will probably look for something that is naturally decorated and ready for an indoor wedding.

Once a wedding venue is chosen out of all of the available wedding ceremony places, the couple will need to sit down and discuss the details with the venue. They will have to choose a date and a time for their wedding event. They will also have to decide if they will have both the wedding ceremony and the wedding reception there. If not, they will have to continue looking for a wedding reception location. Normally it is a good idea to book your wedding reception site as soon as possible once you are engaged, at least a year to 9 months before the wedding. Wedding sites book up quickly, and you will need to book early to guarantee your wedding date is available.

Once a date and a time are chosen, you will have to go over the wedding packages with the venue?s event planner. Some wedding ceremony places will offer all inclusive event packages. All inclusive weddings include everything for the couple, making their planning much easier. This will often include the catering for events, the drinks and the appetizers during the cocktail hours, the linens and chair covers, the staff wages and possibly even the event planner?s services. These are all things that will need to be discussed during the booking. The best venue for you and your soon to be spouse will depend entirely on your preferences and your vision of a wedding event.

Weddings take a lot of work and a lot of planning. This is why many bride and groom to bes take many months to plan their wedding. The ceremony and reception venues are of the most important things to plan. They book up early and details and bookings need to be completed early on. Once the venue is chosen for the ceremony and the reception, the smaller details can begin.
