Type of venue

Deciding what type of venue, you would like for your wedding day is one of the first decisions that needs to be made. Some people prefer a more traditional look and others a more modern feel. Whichever, you and your future partner decide, make sure to look at a range of options to find one you are truly happy with.


The location of the venue should not be more than 20-25 minutes away from the ceremony, which will ultimately limit your search. Therefore, it can be easier to have the whole wedding day in one place for ease and convenience. Making sure you consider your guests is important too. Remember they are also traveling and if it is far away from their home, consider venues that are close to hotels.

Wedding date

If you have a specific date in mind for your big day, this could limit your search. If your wedding date is set in stone, it is best to ask the venue if that date is available before you fall in love and potentially become disappointed. However, if you are more flexible with the date then this will often work to your advantage and make sure you obtain your dream wedding venue.

Wedding guest numbers

Deciding on your guest numbers before you start your search is essential, as you don’t want the room to look too big or cramped for the number of guests you have. It’s important to know how many guests you are planning on inviting for the day ceremony and then for the evening ceremony.


A good wedding venue has great facilities for both the couple and the guests. Some of these facilities could include disabled access, a sound system, technical support and the menu being tailored to accommodate guests’ needs. Including these within the venue will ease the pressure for you and will require less effort when it comes to your big day. You can then focus on what is important, a stress-free wedding.
