Our friends from Spruce Meadows know a thing or two about weddings. The host hundreds of events every year, and many of them are weddings. Picking the right venue is more than just what you think about the space itself - there are so many points to consider when you're firming up the spot where you say "I Do" and announce your commitment in front of the world! They've rounded up 10 important points to consider when you're picking your ceremony venue (plus a bonus one for good measure!)
1. What are the first things to consider when picking a venue?
Approximate guest count - some venues may be too small or even too big. You want a space that is going to be comfortable for your guest count.
2. How far in advance are you booking?
Lots of venues will only book dates within the year you are inquiring and the year after that.
3. What is your desired date?
Does the venue have any blackout periods? If you are considering a "high season" wedding, are you open to a wedding on a Friday or Sunday?
