Finding the Perfect Spot

One of your first tasks as a bride is to find the perfect location, which will help set the tone for your wedding. When you start searching for your ceremony and reception site keep a few things in mind:

  • Your guest list. You don’t need the final list, but you should have a rough estimate of how many people you are planing on inviting.

  • Your budget. Having an idea of what your wedding budget is before you go looking will ensure that you’ll find a location you can afford. You don’t want to fall in love with a space that’s over $250 a head, if your budget will only allow $75 a head.

  • Your wedding’s look and feel. Do you want to get married outdoors? At home? In a church? By knowing what you want, you’ll be able to narrow down the spaces you schedule appointments at and won’t waste time looking at spaces you’ll never book.

Once you've decided on each of the above elements start researching and visiting locations that fit all of your requirements. Don't think you're being too picky if you visit a dozen places or more. It's a very important decision that will impact many details of your wedding so take your time and make sure you choose the right place.
