Let’s face it: planning a wedding is one of the most exciting things a couple can do. Without a good sense of organization and money management, however, this dream day can quickly turn into a large frustration for both individuals.
One of the biggest issues to settle when getting married is looking at places to have a wedding and reception. There are so many factors to consider: indoor or outdoor, religious or not, price etc. It can be a bit overwhelming for any couple. With open communication and focusing your time, however, you and your future spouse can both have a relatively stress free planning experience.
Read on for some tips and tricks for looking into the best places to have a wedding!
How to Plan Your Wedding Without Stressing:
- While wedding plans can be very time consuming, it is crucial that you book a venue in advance in order to secure your dream location. The last thing you want is finding the perfect place too late! Most wedding planners recommend booking a venue at least a year to 9 months before your wedding to avoid any potential headaches. Book extra early if you’re planning a June wedding — it’s the most popular wedding month.
- More and more couples are choosing to use outdoor wedding venues, with 35% of married couples choosing to tie the knot and celebrate outside. While outdoor wedding places may seem to be a great option, you definitely want to think about the climate of where you live. The last thing you want is unpredictable weather to ruin your special day. If you are dead set on an outdoor wedding in an area known for rain or cold temperatures, you may have to buy some sort of tent to make sure you and your guests stay dry.
- One of the easiest ways to search for places to have a wedding in online. In fact, statistics show that approximately 48% of couples getting married have used the Internet to find their dream wedding halls. Location specific searches such as “miami wedding venues” will generally yield the best results, as you’re limiting the area of focus in the search. Many wedding venues will have websites with information and some may even post reviews.
- If the Internet doesn’t seem to be working for you, try asking around with friends and family. They should know you fairly well enough to know what to recommend for you and your loved one.
- Don’t settle on the first wedding venue you find. You want to be sure to compare a few places so you know which one is the best “feel” for you and your future spouse. You also want to be sure to compare prices. See if you can schedule an appointment to tour the venue and talk with a staff member as soon as possible.
