Congratulations! You are engaged! It’s time to start planning the day you have been waiting for since you can remember. But where do you start?
The first and most important aspect of planning a wedding
is setting a date and booking a wedding venue. There is a lot that goes into finding a perfect place. A little planning and research before you finalize the details can go a long way in saving you hardship and headache later on. Below are a few things you should consider when looking for a perfect place for your big day:
- A lot of the times brides and grooms have preferred vendors they would love to hire for their wedding day including but not limited to entertainment, musicians or photographers. Before you book a venue make sure that the vendors of choice are available for your date.
- In addition, when you are searching for the perfect place for your Wedding make sure the venue doesn’t limit you with the equipment the vendors you book are allowed to bring. For example, some venues will charge you, what is called, a hook up fee for connecting into their sound system. This additional unforeseen expense can range anywhere from $300 to $1,500. Other venues obligate you to use their in-house systems and Audio Visual Companies. This is not only an additional expenses but will often limit the choices you have with respect to sound and stage lighting, decor and dance floor.
- Some beautiful venues are located among busy neighborhoods and thus a firm limit is set on when the music must end. Other venues will charge an overtime fee. The end time can range anywhere between 11 pm and 1 am. If you don’t want a limit on your dance time, check the end time with the management, and don’t forget to inquire about set up and tear down time for your vendors. It’s recommended to check if the place will accommodate set up the day before or tear down the day after the Wedding.
