Choosing your wedding venue raises a number of issues that you may think limits the type, style and extravagancy of your wedding location. In fact knowing your limits means you have the ability to make the affair personal and creative. When choosing a wedding venue firstly consider these factors:

1. How many people are you inviting?

The amount of guests can have the potential to leave a large room feeling vacant or make an intimate venue overcrowded. It is therefore important to choose the number of guests before setting your heart on the type of venue you want.

2. When do you want the wedding?

Everyone knows that British weather is very temperamental. Whilst this is your special day unfortunately Mother Nature listens to no-one and no matter which rain dance you perform an outdoor wedding is risky in February. For this reason don’t create your own disaster and let a down pour drench your wedding mood!

3. Budget

Yes the budget controls a lot about the wedding but it doesn’t have too. If your budget is tight try a venue that may be include package deals, this will cut the cost whilst letting you have the location you desire. Or instead choose a venue that means you can DIY your decorations cutting costs on decor but not on the extravagancy of setting.
