Consider the size of your guest list

The size of your guest list is one of the most important factors to consider when it comes to choosing a wedding venue. 

If you’re opting for a non-traditional venue that might not come with a capacity estimate, we can help you estimate capacity. By taking into account both the number of people attending and how much room they need, we can make sure there are no surprises on your big day.

Think about the style of wedding you want

When you think about the style of wedding you have in mind, it’s important to find a venue that matches it. Whether you’re thinking classic and timeless or modern and cutting-edge, there are a plethora of options to consider. 

Check out photos online or even better, venture out to the location yourself, if possible, to get an idea of how well the atmosphere will suit your vision for your wedding. By being strategic about researching wedding venues, you’ll be more likely to find one that best reflects your chosen style.

Date and budget

When you have found the perfect wedding venue, be sure to consider that it fits your budget and consider what dates they have available.  

If it’s a unique location that tops your list of potential options but is over-budget, you can consider compromising with an off-season or shoulder-season date if that impacts costs, adjusting your guest count, or identifying areas of your budget that are not high priorities for you and are good areas to save.

Ask to see pictures and read reviews

Check out photos and videos of past events to have a sense of what if possible at this venue. Reading reviews is also important so that you know what other couples who previously had their wedding in the same venue thought about it. This will help you make an informed decision when picking a venue that’s suitable for your needs.

My favorite thing about destination weddings is watching all of the guests explore a new place! I, myself, love learning more about this tropical paradise. I also really enjoy how every single event is completely different and really reflects the couple and their love story.
