When you’re planning your special day, one of the first things you need to consider is the venue. The venue is often the first piece of the puzzle for brides to be, so it does require a great deal of thought.

The first thing you need to think about is the season in which you want to get married. Let’s say you plan to get married in the summer. You may well pick a venue which has a lovely outdoor space for photos and perhaps this will be the deciding factor. Do you need to think about where you’ll be getting married? Will it need to be close to home to suit family members or are you looking to go abroad and enjoy more of a honeymoon wedding? There is a lot to consider but these are some of the questions you need to be asking yourself. Another aspect is of course whether you want the entire day under one roof, or whether you want to have the ceremony in a church and the reception around the corner. The location will no doubt play a big part in your venue decision, so the sooner you decide on this, the easier it will be to pick a venue.
