How To Choose The Perfect Wedding Venue

How To Choose The Perfect Wedding Venue

15 May 2012

Choosing the wedding venue can be just as difficult as picking out the wedding dress. Location, photo opportunities, dining experience, and budget amongst other things all come into the equation and getting a venue that ticks all the right boxes can sometimes be frustrating and time consuming.


Choosing the location is key to a great wedding day and the venue needs to be easily accessible with sufficient parking. For a long guest list the venue ideally needs to be both spacious but comfortable, where guests feel able to relax and have a good time. It is also important to check what type of wedding receptions the venue can support as their flexibility in what they can and can't offer may be a deciding factor.

Country house wedding venues are often a popular choice and will usually offer the perfect combination of indoor and outdoor space. Being able to stroll out onto a terrace or landscaped garden with a stunning picture postcard view certainly adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to the day and can make it easy for all to relax and unwind. 

Creative Wedding Solutions

Assessing what comes with the price of the venue is important. Every bride wants her wedding to be unique so finding a venue that is geared towards creative wedding ideas with a team of professionals on hand to offer their own expertise, ideas and suggestions is invaluable. A creative team will also want to work with you to make your vision for your special day a reality, giving you flexibility and freedom to create the wedding of your dreams.

The Wedding Planner

Simply choosing a wedding venue is never the end of the decision making process. While it is a giant step towards completing the organisation aspect of the day, there will be a lot of subsequent decisions to be made, tasks to perform and things to choose. Not all venues will offer the services of a wedding planner so choosing one that does will certainly ease the stress of the planning stages. Opting for a location such as Sundial Wedding's Northamptonshire wedding venue, Highgate House, Surrey country house wedding venue Barnett Hill or Warwickshire wedding venue Woodside means you can leave the final touches to the venue's own wedding planner.  

The wedding planner allows the bride and groom to enjoy a stress-free lead up to their wedding and will ensure peace of mind that all the on-the-day details will be efficiently taken care of.

The Price Tag

Budget obviously plays an important part of choosing any wedding venue. Getting good quality service on a budget can sometimes be a worry so wedding venues that offer all-inclusive wedding packages warrant serious consideration.


The venue may be nice, the price might be great but the food could be dismal and a total let down. Choosing a venue that comes highly recommended, pays particular attention to the menu selection process and includes a tasting experience is definitely worthwhile. Wedding couples may also want to keep an eye out for certificates of excellence.  For environmentally conscious wedding couples, it is worth double-checking the venue's ethics and environmental policies. Countryside wedding venues, are also more likely to organically source their products than city centre ones and suppliers are guaranteed to be local and good quality.
