For all of the brides who are stressing out about the perfect venue, the steps toward success are easy. There are some critical details to decide on first, and then the selection of a dynamic wedding venue is possible without breaking the bank.
If you and your fiancee already agree on the guest list; that’s great! If not, it’s time to have a talk. Once the guest list is agreed on; you can confidently decide on the size of your venue. You want your guests to be comfortable; so if management says it only holds 100, don’t try to squeeze an extra 30 chairs. Inadequate space will cancel out any cool points about the decor.
Think about what you can’t live without. The availability can affect the month and day of your wedding. Seasons, vacation time related to work, and prior obligations are sometimes non-negotiable, so also factor that first. The location is important. Indoor or outdoor, geographical positioning(city, neighborhood, access to lakes or rivers), and the ease of entry should be considered. Some of your guests may need ramps to enter the venue, so ask about adaptations made to the building for those who move with difficulty.
The venue should reflect the couple. In the New York City area, there are endless venues that offer uniqueness, style, and are budget-friendly. Many businesses, such as art galleries, theatres, and even office buildings have areas that are available for event rental.
Nothing wrong with splurging on your big day, but please keep in mind the event will only last a few hours. If buying a home, starting a family, or relocating to a new city are your plans in the near future, try not to break the bank.
When selecting the perfect venue for your “I do’s”, make sure it resonates with you and your partner’s personalities. An over the top budget doesn’t guarantee the best wedding, sometimes the simpler the better. Just make sure it’s the best decision for your guests’ experience and the memories that you will cherish for a lifetime.
