The location you choose to host your wedding in can have a major impact on the feel and tone of your special day, and deciding on the perfect wedding venue can be one of the most important decisions you can make when it comes to planning your wedding. Whether you want a small, intimate gathering or a huge celebration of you and your partner’s love for each other, the right venue can make all the difference.
At Garden Tuscana, we offer couples a beautiful garden venue and spacious ballroom that will ensure your special day is one to remember. Our all-inclusive wedding packages offer an affordable and hassle-free way to share your wedding day with friends and loved ones. If you are working on planning your wedding, here are some factors to keep in mind when deciding the venue.
Choose a Venue That Fits Your Vision
While budget is an important consideration, finding a venue that fits the unique vision you have for your wedding can be priceless. For many couples, there are elements of traditional weddings or venues that don’t completely align with their own priorities, and it is helpful during the planning stage to sit down with your partner and decide what your dream venue will look like and what amenities it will offer. Planning well in advance also gives couples the unique ability to save money and allows them to flex their creativity – for instance, an open bar might be an unnecessary expense, whereas a signature drink a couple wants to share with those who attend their wedding can make the venue feel more personalized while cutting down on beverage expenses.
Start Looking Early
Finding a venue that works well with your vision can be difficult, especially the closer to the date you look. For those with particular considerations for a venue, the earlier you can explore options in the area you are looking, the better. For some couples, the venue is more important than the time of year they hold their wedding, which better enables them to hold their wedding at their dream venue as they can utilize availability in months that are not as busy. By starting the venue search early, you can research reviews, visit the venue, ask questions and get a better sense if the venue reflects your unique vision.
Venue Size and the Guest List
Venue size is an important consideration for couples, and choosing a site that fits the size of your guest list as well as your vision of your wedding is paramount. Some couples want as many loved ones to share in the celebration of the love for their partner as possible, but this can limit venues and put a strain on the budget. The size of the guest list is often one of the easiest ways to cut expenses when planning a wedding, but it can be challenging for couples to decide who and who not to invite. If your dream venue is not large enough to host the guest list you want, revising the number of people you invite can save you money and ensure you can hold your wedding at your preferred location. Our ballroom can comfortably accommodate up to 500 guests, giving you and your partner a lot of flexibility when it comes to deciding the guest list. While trimming the guest list can be hard, the payoff is that you and your partner have the perfect venue to make lifelong memories.
Where Will You Have the Reception?
The location of your reception is also a good factor to keep in mind when choosing a venue, and a venue with space for both your ceremony and reception can be a great choice. Holding your reception and ceremony in the same venue can be easier on your budget and alleviate the worry of your guests finding their way from the ceremony to the reception. Couples desiring to have the ceremony in a place of worship will naturally need a separate reception venue, and if booked early can maximize proximity and gauge which location would be better for pictures. Depending on the season and weather, couples can exercise a lot of flexibility when choosing a venue and outdoor or indoor options for ceremonies and receptions.
