7 Things to Consider when Picking a Wedding Venue ...


I'm pleased to say that Heather and I have decided where to get married, but let me tell you, picking a wedding venue is tough!

There are so many things to consider, from what you and your partner want out of your venue, to the things that are offered, the price, the location in terms of beauty, the location in terms of proximity – whew!

If you're planning your wedding and you're having some trouble picking a wedding venue, hopefully these tips will help you put the most important things into perspective!

Where do you want your wedding to be – and are you willing to compromise at all?2

Heather and I desperately wanted to get married in Salem, but in picking a wedding venue, we discovered very quickly that an October wedding in Salem just wasn't going to happen – and we were cool with that.

We also fell in love with a venue three hours away from us, but that wasn't logical for us, our local guests, or the guests coming in from out of town.

Think about what details you want first – a garden wedding, indoor or outdoor, a destination wedding – and work out your choices from there, but remember that you may have to go with your second or even your third choice.
