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!

Things to Consider before booking your wedding venue

Other than the dress one of the first things that brides run out to do is find their wedding venue.  This can be dangerous if you don't have a budget in mind or created.  You'll need to know how much you can spend on each area of your wedding before you starting booking and buying things.

We have lots of traditional locations in Greensboro and our surrounding areas to host a wedding.  We also have some not so traditional locations and then of course some off the beaten track locations.

When looking for your venue it is a good idea to have a plan in mind first - and then find the venue that suits it.  99% of the time brides look for the venue and then try to fit their ideas around the venue.  It is easier the other way.

I'm not the type of planner that will give you a list of things to look for - I'm giving you an honest way to do things to make your wedding day what you've always wanted.

Any questions!?
