Dedicated: How to Choose a Venue for Your Wedding

Choosing a venue for your wedding is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. You want the day to be one that everyone will remember for all of the right reasons, so you have to make sure that the venue is just right. This is also one of the first decisions that you have to make as many of the most popular venues get booked up very quickly.

One venue that mixes romance with high end style is venue 57 in NYC where you can enjoy the latest facilities in a loft style environment just a short walk from Tiffany & Co. and Carnegie Hall. This is certainly one excellent option for an NYC wedding venue. We are going to take a look at some of the points you need to consider when deciding which option is best for you.

What is your budget?

You may not want to be thinking about the financial side of things; after all weddings are all about love right? The fact is that, like any other event, weddings cost money, and you have to be realistic about the budget you have available. There is little point going around different venues if you can’t afford to hire them at the end of the day. Your wedding day is special but you don’t want to spend so much money that the start of your married life is plagued by financial worries.

What is the guest list?

This needs to be considered in conjunction with budget and the cost of venues. You may find that you have difficult decisions to make. Some couples find that they have to start limiting the number of guests that attend in the daytime and invite the majority of people to a more affordable evening party. You may want to be able to invite the world and his wife to celebrate your big day but it just may not be possible. You need to come to a final decision on numbers before you book a venue.

Where are people traveling from?

This follows on from who is on the guest list. If everyone who is attending your wedding is from the same area, and is local to you, then you can choose any local venue and it will be convenient for everyone. If people are spread a little further apart then you are going to need to put some thought into which is the best location, not just for you but also for the majority of the guests.

What type of day do you want?

Once you have addressed all the practicalities you need to decide what type of wedding day you want, as this will help you decide on the most suitable venue. You may want a full on, no-expense spared day when your guests are waited on and everything is planned for you, you may want a quiet wedding with a less traditional meal and party or you may decide that having a wedding at home is the best idea. Whatever you decide, hopefully our tips will have helped you reach the decision.
