If you recently said, “I do,” one of the next steps is choosing where you and your significant other want to get married. From banquet halls to country clubs, there are many different options available, and finding the right wedding venue can be overwhelming. Here are a few pointers to help make the process easier.

How to Consider When Selecting a Wedding Venue

1. Guest Count

Before you start looking at venues, determine approximately how many guests will be invited to the wedding. All venues have different capacity limits, and you want to choose one that can comfortably hold all the attendees. It’s common for couples to underestimate how many people they will invite to their wedding, so have this conversation with your partner early on to avoid venue issues.

2. Wedding Date

Always consider the time of the year you’re getting married. If you’re exchanging vows in the summer, consider a wedding venue that offers gorgeous outdoor views from an indoor space so that you and your guests can beat the heat. Use the time of year to narrow down several specific dates so that you have options when visiting venues.

3. Location

Sit down with your partner and decide the general location where you want to host the wedding. If you want to have a large wedding that includes all of your relatives, it may be more convenient to hold the event in one person’s hometown. 

4. Style

As you tour different wedding venues, consider what you want your wedding theme to be. If you want to exchange vows in a natural setting, opt for a place that hosts outdoor ceremonies. A more classic wedding might include an indoor venue, like a ballroom or country club.
