Why the Wedding Venue is So Important to Your Big Day
As you plan your wedding, you may not be thinking too hard about your wedding ceremony and wedding reception venues. They may be in the back of your mind as you focus on other things on your list. Maybe the wedding cake and food are more important to you. Perhaps finding the dress and finalizing your guest list are top priorities. At the end of the day, where you celebrate the wedding should be just as important, though. If you have nowhere to wear the dress, then what good is it to you?
A wedding venue can be one of the trickier parts of the wedding to plan, as well. It can be hard to select a spot before you know just how many guests you are planning to invite. On the other hand, you don?t want to wait too long to book a venue because they can fill up quickly. In fact, many recommend that you book your venue at least a year before the wedding. For many people, that means picking the venue has to come in near the top of the wedding to do list.
If you?re one of the more casual bride and groom couples, maybe you want an outdoor wedding or one that reflects your personality. Nowadays, around 35% of people choose an outdoor venue and more than 40% want to feel like their venue accurately represents their personality as a couple. Nearly 50% prefer to have a wedding that is scenic or has some type of outdoorsy background to enjoy all evening long.
How to Find the Right Wedding Package for You
If you?re trying to think about the big picture for your wedding, consider getting a wedding package that fits for you. With the right research, you can find somewhere to have your wedding ceremony, wedding reception, and rooms to stay at all weekend. That way, you can do your rehearsals at the same location, too.
All you have to do is find a location that offers cabin rental, a cottage, or other getaway options so the entire wedding party can stay together all weekend long. When it?s time for the rehearsal, you won?t have to worry about if everyone will arrive on time. They?ll already be at the location and ready to make sure your rehearsal goes as planned. Afterward, everyone can stay in their respective cottage or cabin before the big day.
Even after the wedding ceremony and wedding reception, the wedding party and other guests can rent a cottage or cabin to stay. No one has to worry about finding a hotel within a good distance or trying to get back home after enjoying themselves at your wedding reception. Instead, they can simply head to their cottage or cabin for a good night?s sleep.
The next morning, everyone can head home after an enjoyable wedding weekend that doubled as a getaway for all involved!
