Choosing a Wedding Venue Checklist

Your checklist for choosing the right wedding venue!

Although it’ll still take quite some time for the world to begin normalizing again after the “Events That Shall Not Be Named,” there’s little doubt that 2021 will see more weddings than the previous year. If you’ve been delaying your nuptials or simply chose this year to begin your new journey with a loved one, then you’re going to be making a lot of decisions very soon. To help you kick things off, here’s a wedding venue checklist for you to follow:


Contact a Wedding Planner

The first thing you should do as part of your wedding venue checklist is to choose a reputable wedding planner. You can always check out reviews on sites like Yelp, but your best bet is to reach out to family and friends who have been married in recent years and ask them for advice. They may even be able to get you a better price for their services.


Choose the “Perfect” Venue

Obviously, “perfect” will be in the eye of the beholder. Speak with your future spouse and make a list of what each of you want to have in a venue, including size and location, and make a decision from there. If you can find one that’s either sentimental or symbolic, that’s even better!


Figure Out Your Guest List

The guest list will depend on your priorities, budget, and other such factors. It’s important that you don’t choose a venue that’s too small where you’ll be forced to leave important people off the list. After all, you don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, which is sometimes easy to do when it comes to being invited to a wedding.


Develop a Proper Budget

A big factor that you’ll need to figure out when choosing a wedding venue is your overall budget. There are many different indoor and outdoor venues available that range from quaint to extremely lavish. Some couples want to spend more money on the venue itself whereas others want to spend more money on equipment and supplies.


Choose Rented Wedding Equipment and Items

Wedding rental equipment saves you money, time, and energy. You can rent specific wedding items such as archways, cake stands, Roman columns, and cupcake stands. General equipment like tents, tent accessories, dinner and glassware, catering equipment, tables, chairs, audio/visual devices, and dance floors are also available.
