As every engaged couple knows, planning a wedding is a lot of work and can be very stressful. Because of this, many people make mistakes when choosing their venue, selecting a wedding dress, or even coming up with a guest list. Knowing what mistakes are common when selecting a venue for your big day will help ensure that you don’t make them and will allow you to relax on your big day.
Choosing a Venue that Doesn’t Allow Outside Vendors
While some venues will market the fact that they don’t allow outside vendors as making it easier for the happy couple to plan their big day, if you are not going to be able to bring in your own caterer or furniture rental company then you are going to quickly become frustrated when trying to plan your wedding. You can often get a much better deal on vendors when you don’t hire them through a venue, and being able to choose your own vendors helps ensure that you are happy with the quality of work that they provide.
Planning for Bad Weather
Nobody wants to consider that their big day may get rained out, but when looking at gay wedding venues in Sydney, you have to prepare for the worst, and this means making sure that you have a contingency plan in place in case it rains, snows, sleets, or hails all day long. While you may really love the outdoor venue that you have found, if they don’t have another place on site where you can hold your wedding if the weather turns foul, you will want to find another venue. You don’t want your guests to be uncomfortable and you don’t want to be standing in the pouring rain while saying your vows.
Not Asking If You’re the Only Wedding
It can be easy to overlook the need to make sure that you’re going to be the only wedding at the venue, especially when you have completely fallen in love with a location, but you don’t want to have to compete with another wedding party. While this is rare, some people have had their wedding celebrations cut short because another couple has booked the dance floor. Having two weddings at the same place at the same time also makes it very difficult for your guests to find parking and can make it difficult for your caterers to have the space that they need to do a great job on your food.
You probably have an idea of what kind of venue you are looking for your wedding, but it’s important to make sure that you don’t make a mistake in your selection. Avoiding these mistakes will ensure that you have an amazing day and that you aren’t stressed out by your choice of wedding venue.
