Ambiance & Experience
You can have your loved ones pile up in any space to celebrate your big day and it would probably be a great time.
But there is something to be said about a place that creates an ambiance and an experience for you and the people on your wedding day. It creates something so memorable and not just because of the flashy decor or high budget. This could be for so many different reasons. Maybe it’s because it’s near the neighborhood you’ve grown up in all your life or because it resembles the place you’ve dreamt of having your wedding at since you were little. Those are the feelings you should pay attention to but they are also something a venue should somehow just have. We know that sounds crazy, but we promise, the magic really starts to happen when you start planning your wedding, which is why making huge decisions can sometimes be quite easy, all thanks to your gut intuition.
Budget & Size

This is where gut intuition meets cold hard facts.
A venue can have all the things on your list, but if it’s outrageously out of your budget then it might be something you have to say no to. And that’s okay. If it’s meant to be, it will be! The key to this part of the decision is to make sure you’re only looking at places that are within your budget. Something that could make your budget stretch is your guest count. You may have a budget that fits 100 people but you just couldn’t cut it under 200 wedding guests. For this, your planner and the venue should be able to get creative and use their resources. Nowadays, venues are all about making it work by having different seating options and really utilizing their space.
With a little bit of intuition and a little bit of planning, your wildest venue dreams can come true! Don’t be afraid to have expectations of your wedding planner and the venue owners. Something great about the wedding industry nowadays is the room for creativity. It’s the job of wedding professionals to make sure they get creative to meet your needs and give you the special day that you deserve. So, when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding venue, you have totally got this! Just make sure to follow your feelings and work within your means.
