What’s the Right Venue for My Wedding?

August 11, 2016

There are virtually limitless options, depending on your goals, priorities and budget to where you will hold your wedding. You have to be able to match what you’re looking for with intangibles (the look and feel of a venue) and practical issues (size, location, availability and budget). We can help you balance your wants and needs and find the right place for you.

Are you looking for creative wedding locations in the Philadelphia area? We provide expert guidance to helping you find the perfect location.

The big issue at hand is knowing the look and feel of your ideal wedding. For instance, you may want a black-tie ballroom wedding in Center City. Your heart’s desire may also be leading you to beautiful Bucks County, PA wedding with a sophisticated country flair to the event.

Beyond your theme, here are some things to think about…

  • Will the wedding be a religious or a civil ceremony? If it will be a religious ceremony do you have a specific location in mind?
  • Do you have a particular place in mind for photographs before and after your ceremony?
  • Do you want the ceremony, photographs and reception at the same place? If not, how far apart do you want the locations to be?
  • What is your budget? That venue you have your heart set on may simply be out of reach. But there may be other great venues that you don’t know about that will work for you and your budget.
  • How many will be attending? You won’t need a “hard count” of attendees to consider venues but you need to have an idea to avoid wasting time considering too many venues.
  • When do you plan on getting married? There are venues that will work better in the summer, others in the fall or spring. If you have a particular date in mind a venue may already be booked.
  • Inside or outside? If you want the ceremony and/or reception outdoors your venue will need to have space for Plan B in case the weather doesn’t cooperate.
  • Is accessibility an issue for the marrying couple or guests? If there are important people who have limited mobility can the venue accommodate them?

This can be an awful lot to consider and you might want someone to help you walk through the process. With our expertise and your imagination we will find the perfect venue for your affair.
