Silly Mistakes Everyone Does When Choosing a Wedding Venue

Some of the common mistakes which can be avoided by applying some common sense include:

Weather

Consider what the weather will be like during the wedding day. For instance, picking your venue during fall for a summer wedding may not prepare you for the heat. Think of ventilation and air conditioning.

Space

When picking the venue, many couples forget to consider all the space requirements. You need to think of where the tables will be placed, space for the speakers’ and performers’ stage, where the wedding DJ or band equipment will be, allocate space for dancing, and have a separate space for the bar.

Privacy

Your wedding plan took into consideration only a particular number of invited guests. Thus, you need a venue that guarantees your privacy from gate crashers and prying eyes. For example, having your wedding at a crowded beach may not be comfortable for you or your guests.

Culture and Religion

A wedding is as much a social event as it is a religious and cultural event. You need to factor in all your guests and other participant’s beliefs and preferences when picking your venue. Consult where there are potential disputes.

Well, not everyone makes these mistakes.  We actually managed to pick venues that had none of these issues.

 Very good points.  Especially the privacy at the venue which is very important to me.
