Wedding Venues

Your wedding day is probably one of the most important days of your life. Choosing the right wedding venue is one of the most important decisions when it comes to making your big day a success for everyone.

Choosing the Perfect Venue 

Whether you are looking for staffordshire wedding venues or plan to tie the knot elsewhere in the country, there is an almost overwhelming number of options available. Your first decision may be whether to get married in a church, although an increasing number of couples are choosing not to do that, especially if they have been married before. The perfect venue is important as it can literally mean the difference between a successful wedding day, or a disaster; in fact, the right venue is arguably more important than anything else. The food may not be what you expected it to be, and you may have some guests who are unable to come, but without the right venue, your wedding day can be remembered for all the wrong reasons.

Types of Wedding Venue

You should start thinking about your wedding venue as far ahead as you can, especially if you are getting married during a popular time of the year. Venues for weddings vary widely, from stately homes and castles, to a barn in a beautiful outdoor setting. And you can even get married on the beach in the UK, as well as hold your reception in a converted windmill, a museum or art gallery, a distillery or on board a ship. Whatever type of venue you are looking for, there's a good chance that you can get married there and have an enjoyable and memorable wedding reception.

What To Consider When Choosing a Venue

One way to narrow down the perfect venue for your wedding is to make a list of what's important to you, what you are looking for and of course your budget. It's all too easy to go over budget when planning your wedding and if it's just too expensive to get married and have your reception in that lovely country stately home in Staffordshire, you may have to compromise somewhere. Apart from your budget, the number of guests will also influence your choice of venue; you don't want to pay for a large venue that accommodates several hundred people if your guest list is under 100. At the same time, you don't want to hold your reception somewhere that is too small. Keep in mind the location too; many country venues for weddings sound appealing, but you should consider how your guests are going to get there - is there easy access to the motorway? Is there a railway station or airport nearby? Think of the time of year too; a country house in Scotland sounds appealing, but if you are getting married in the winter, bad weather can be an problem. And regardless of where you choose to get married and hold a reception, make sure you know what's included in the cost, and what the cancellation policy is.
