Not all wedding venues are created equal, so what makes the best wedding venue?
First Impressions Count
Choosing the best wedding venue begins on your first visit, so staff should be delighted that you are considering their venue for your wedding celebrations. Make sure you leave enough time to have a really good look around. It might be an idea to jot down a few questions so you can talk things through as you go. If the person showing you around the venue has plenty of helpful advice and shows a keen interest in your wedding plans then you are off to a good start.
Meet Your Team
Who will be assisting you in the planning of your wedding and running it on the day? Do you have a dedicated co-coordinator? Your Co-ordinator should be brimming with creativity and ideas, able to advise you completely and pledge to always exceed your expectations but, they should also be happy to leave the final decision to you. From wedding flowers, to your choice of starter, all your choices should be one’s that are personal to you. Once you are happy with the running order it’s a good idea to stick with it, although a good wedding co-ordinator should be able to take most changes in their stride.
Premier Wedding Venue Accommodation
Luxury wedding venues often offer exclusive accommodation for the bride and groom and their guests. This can add another and very special dynamic to the wedding celebrations as guests can arrive the day before the wedding and begin to relax before the big day. This also applies to the bride and groom who can enjoy an extended wedding celebration with their loved ones at their own pace.
Choosing the Best Wedding Venue for Personalised Bespoke Dining
A luxury wedding venue should offer tailored bespoke catering which will allow you to design a personalised menu exclusively for your wedding. Additionally, a food tasting session at your venue when planning your wedding can help to illustrate the portion sizes and the look of the food and, of course, how the food tastes. Do not be embarrassed to tell the Chef if you dislike a dish, or an element of it. Their job is to ensure your wedding breakfast is just how you want it to be. They should be flexible to meet your requests as well as being able to offer plenty of inspiration and advice.
The Gardens and Grounds
As well as exclusive accommodation and delicious food which you would expect a luxury wedding venue to provide, you would also hope for some beautiful gardens and grounds to enjoy. Make a point of exploring where you can hold your wedding ceremony in and around the venue itself. If you are planning a summer wedding you want to be certain that the gardens and grounds can fulfil your requirements.
Does your luxury wedding venue stand out from the crowd?
Choosing the best wedding venue is something that you and your guests will remember for years to come. From how it looked and how seamless the staff made the day, to the food and atmosphere it provided.
