One of the issues you will want to consider when deciding on a wedding venue is whether you will want your ceremony and reception in the same place. Having both events in the same place comes with both pros and cons. On the positive side, you don’t have to worry about making sure everyone makes it from the ceremony to the reception. You don’t have to worry about your hair and make-up being ruined by the weather because you don’t even have to go outside! Most venues also offer discounted rates if you have the ceremony and the reception at their facitility. The biggest problem with having both events in the same place is space. Make sure you know how they plan to handle the flow of the rooms, and if they only have one room, how they plan to handle transition from one event to another. The last thing you want on your wedding day is an awkward pause and having to ask your guests to set up their own tables and chairs.
Arguably the most important part of planning a wedding is deciding on the food. Most venues require you to use their caterers. Sometimes this is great, other times, not so great. If your venue requires you to use their catering service, be sure it is good food. Try all the dishes, not just the dish you plan on eating. If the food isn’t up to par, try working out an alternative. If the venue isn’t flexible and isn’t willing to meet your needs, go elsewhere.
Spend money on your pictures! This little bit of advice cannot be stressed enough. If you do not already have a photographer in mind, talk to your venue about who they have worked with and who they would recommend. Working with a photographer who is familiar with the venue can be a huge benefit and result in some absolutely fabulous pictures.
