Why the Venue Matters

Your wedding venue is more than just a space to hold your reception; it’s the backdrop for your special day. The venue you choose sets the tone for your wedding, and it will be the place where you make lasting memories. Whether you’re envisioning a grand ballroom or a rustic barn, your wedding venue is an essential component of your special day.

Exploring Your Venue Options

As you start your search for the perfect dream wedding venue, it’s essential to have a basic understanding of the different types of venues available. From hotels and resorts to barns and outdoor settings, there are numerous options to choose from. Take the time to research the various types of venues and determine which one will best fit your wedding vision and budget.

Rustic and Barn Venues

For those who want a more intimate and rustic wedding experience, barn venues are an excellent choice. Located in scenic rural areas, these venues provide a charming and authentic ambiance for your special day. Many barn venues offer stunning outdoor settings, perfect for both wedding ceremonies and receptions.

Outdoor Venues

For couples who love the outdoors, an outdoor wedding venue may be just what you’re looking for. From beachfront pavilions to garden settings, outdoor venues offer a unique and memorable experience for everyone in attendance. While these venues offer stunning scenery, it’s essential to consider the weather and have a backup plan in case of rain or extreme heat.

How to Choose Your Dream Wedding Venue

Once you’ve narrowed down your venue options, it’s time to start the selection process. Use these tips to choose the right venue for your dream wedding:

Consider Your Budget

Before you start touring venues, it’s essential to have a budget in mind. Wedding venues can range from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars. Determine what you can afford and stick to it. Keep in mind that some venues may offer off-season or weekday discounts.

Decide on Your Wedding Style

Your wedding style will play a significant role in choosing the right venue. Determine if you want a formal or casual wedding, intimate or grand. This will help guide your search and ensure you find a venue that fits your wedding vision.

Check Availability

Once you’ve narrowed down your options, it’s time to start touring venues. Schedule an appointment to visit each venue and take a tour. Be sure to check availability, especially if you have a specific wedding date in mind.


Q: How far in advance should I book my wedding venue?

A: It’s recommended to book your wedding venue at least a year in advance, especially if you’re planning a summer or fall wedding.

Q: Is it possible to have an outdoor wedding venue in the winter?

A: Yes, many outdoor venues offer heated tents or indoor backup options for winter weddings.

Q: Does the wedding venue provide catering?

A: Some venues offer in-house catering, while others require outside catering vendors.

“You will find that most times you have a vision of what it is that you want to accomplish and that’s most important. It allows you to work backwards and make cuts and changes that will still reflect the overall outcome you wish to achieve. What good is splurging on one particular item if it doesn’t result in the overall outcome you were trying to create?

We cannot say enough good things about this venue and the owners, Emily & Mike! It is truly a hidden gem. The garden is absolutely gorgeous – you really don’t even need to decorate because the scenery has so much beauty all itself. There are so many spots throughout the venue that could be used for different parts of an event, and no matter where you turned it was a perfect photo backdrop. Our friends and family kept telling us how beautiful the venue was and wondering how we found it.
