Choosing the perfect wedding venue can be a trail for some, but a joy for others. There are few things better in life than being led around a stunning stately home – champagne in hand – whilst venue representatives fuss over your every whim and vie for your custom – but choosing the right venue is about more than wedding chair covers and dance floors. Here’s a little advice we’ve garnered over the years on venue choices.
Depending on the theme of your wedding, a certain venue could already stand as ideal. For example, a Hawaiian theme wedding held on farmland overlooking the sea could be perfect. It’s great to enter venues with an open mind and really listen to venue agents. Of course they’d love your custom, but many are accomplished events planners with a font of highly intuitive, useful knowledge.
Entering into serious discussion about a venue means you need a focussed, reliable idea of how many guests can be expected. Some venues can offer highly customisable services such as optional room dividers.
Whether you need wedding chair covers in Birmingham or chair cover hire in Manchester, you need a complete idea of decor before making any colour decisions. That said, lots of our clients find it easiest to choose a colour theme that already matches the venue carpet etc. and then to commission chair cover hire and plan the rest of the room. This can help keep costs down, and the open bar budget up!
