How to choose the perfect venue
Choosing the perfect venue for your wedding is one of the most important decisions that you have to make at the beginning of your planning process. The venue will define absolutely everything, from the number of guests you will have, to the mood and decoration style.
And I know you probably arrive at the venue and see things that dazzle you, but don’t let yourself be dazzled, considering it calmly.And for this, here you have 3 tips that will help you to know if that is the chosen place.
1. TALK TO A WEDDING PLANNER
As wedding planners, we know the places available in the area where you are going to get married, we know what will be needed to decorate the venue and transform it into what you really want and all the rest of the things that you may not be considering. So do not be afraid to ask for help, I assure you that you can save yourself a lot of time and headaches if you work together with a professional.
2. have a plan b
Most of the couples who get married in Barcelona decide to do it during spring and summer precisely because they dream about having an outdoor wedding, near the beach or near the mountains surrounded by nature. But even though it doesn’t usually rain in those months, nature is unpredictable and you need to be prepared.
If this is your case, ask where they would move the wedding in case of rain or bad weather. Fall in love with the inside as much as the outside, because even if the possibilities are remote, it is better to be happy from the beginning with both alternatives.
Another thing you can do is have a budget to hire tents to have the possibility of still having an outdoor wedding but safe, clean, and dry. Ask your wedding planner to help you consider this in your budget.
3. Knowing your guest list
It may seem obvious, but you don’t know how many couples start looking for a venue without having any idea of how many people will attend.
Do not make the mistake of underestimating the guest list, you do not have to know it for sure, but an estimation would be handy for easily making the decision with all the information in your hands.
This is super important because the number of guests will make you need a smaller or larger venue, and this affects not only the choice of a suitable venue but also affects the budget, the style of the wedding and many other aspects that should be considered.
