Finding The Right Venue

Before you run out and find a venue please PLEASE consider finding a great wedding planner first, but if you don’t… here are some really great tips on finding the right venue for you.

  1. Create your budget. This is what you can afford to spend on your wedding. Once you have it broken down into segments move to step 2.

  2. Use the internet. Google venue’s in your area and start calling for prices (if they don’t have them listed). Don’t go and see the ones that don’t fit in your budget. If you have a small budget then look at city/government owned venues, they are much cheaper. Also think out of the box, empty store fronts could be awesome for a reception. Also look into the church that you attend for your ceremony.

  3. Once you have a list of venues that fit in your budget try to visit all of them in one day. This way it is easy to rule out the ones that you don’t like or the ones that added on cost vs. your call or their website.

  4. As you visit ASK Questions, what is included, how many tables and chairs do you have and in what sizes? Make sure you walk out of there with a copy of their contract (for details) and their package information.

  5. Once you’ve visited all of them sit down with your spouse to be and go through and list out the pros and cons of each one. Once you’ve decided - book it!

A disclaimer - wedding planners help you create your budget, they elimiate the #2 and hand you the list for #3. Most even have the answers that you need for #4. Having a wedding planner with you can not only save you time and energy they can save you money!

Happy Planning!

Venue Review: Noah's of High Point

I do like this venue!  Not just because we are a preferred professional, but because of the simplicity of the event space.  If you are looking for a high end venue with lots of different options this is a venue that you should visit.  Here are some photos that we've taken:

There are lots of decor options available and the location is PERFECT for guest count of around 100 - 110. I know they allow more, but it can get crowded and you want people to have room to move and dance and meet their new family members!

Venue: Noah's Event Center Mocksville

Let's just say for being located in an industrial park, Noah's is pretty cool!  I LOVE the chairs! No chair covers needed, I love the fact that they have ceiling options and that the floors are hard wood.  I love the bride and groom getting ready rooms!  The event area's are cute, but tight for both the ceremony and reception area.  I wouldn't put more than 150 guests in there, but the venue says 200+.  I prefer to have room for my wedding guests to walk between tables and make visiting and meeting new family members easy. The venue is pretty pricey, but then again, aren't they all! The difference here is it is well kept and has lots of little benefits!  Fitted for a more modern, contemporary type of couple.

Here are some photos for you!
