Wedding Venues

If you are seeking the most fantastical place for your wedding, Las Vegas as them. If you want a more subtle feel, Las Vegas as them too. But how to settle on the perfect venue for you and your guests is the key question. Once you know your wedding date, one of the first things you will want to do is find and book the wedding site that will work best for your situation. There are a few issues you will want to take into consideration and some questions you will want to ask. Lets go over them together and help you get to where you want to be on your special day.

One of the first obvious questions you need to consider is whether the location is large enough to accommodate all of your guests. This will include space for tables to eat at but also enough room for dancing, for the band, for bar areas, and more. Once you know if the venue is large enough, you will want to ask if the facility has your wedding date open. Outdoor weddings are another animal completely, but if you are having one, you will want to make sure that there is a backup plan in case of rain and places to go in case the weather is too hot or cold on your wedding day.

When you do a site visit, try to make your visit the same time of day that your wedding party and guests are going to be there. Locations look different at different times of the day depending on lighting and windows so it will help you if you can see it just as it will be on your wedding day. One thing that many people don't give a lot of thought to is how accommodating a location is for people with disabilities. You will want to find this out especially if you have guests who might need accommodation. A related issue is what a location can do for any children that might be attending with your guests. Do they possibly have a playroom with an attendant or at least a room where an adult at your wedding could take any children if needed.

Some people like this and some don't, but if you are amenable to it, find out if a venue can handle both your ceremony and your reception. Obviously, a lot of that decision will depend on what you have your heart set on. You want to make sure that whatever location you choose, that they will allow you to have a site walk-through with your wedding vendors so you can get details squared away. Ask about the venue's parking situation. Is there enough parking spaces for the number of guests you are going to have? Or will your guests need to be shuttled from somewhere else?

Some smaller issues that many people don't think to bring up but which can be issues are things like are there enough bathrooms to accommodate a large group? What are the acoustics like? Will there be other weddings going on at the same time yours is? What are the venues hours? When will you need to be out of there? These are all elements of your wedding day that will you want to check out when you are looking into wedding venues. If you're in the midwest try Wedding Receptions in Detroit for other options.
