Pick the Right Venue for Your Wedding Day 


If your wedding day is coming soon, it would be about time to choose where to hold your reception. The day of getting married requires a lot of planning, and the sooner you start planning everything the better for you. That way, you won’t leave anything to chance.

When it comes to choosing a venue, you need to take into consideration certain things so that you can make the right decision. Many venues are available and finding the perfect one can be very complicated. That’s why you need to consider some important factors.



One of the things that you need to take into consideration when choosing a place for your reception is availability. It is crucial to keep in mind that many couples book a venue at least a few months in advance. You shouldn’t wait until the last moment to start searching for the right venue. It would be perfect if you could start doing it at least 6-7 months in advance. That way, you will be in charge of choosing a location, and your choices won’t be limited by a lack of time. Booking in advance is especially important if you want to get married around holidays. No matter your choice of venue, the sooner you book it, the better. If the desired venue is not available on the date when you are getting married, you also have a chance to change it. If you don’t want to do that, you should search for a new location, for example,




Size is another crucial factor that you need to consider. It is important to find a location of the right size. If you have hundreds of guests, choosing a small venue won’t be good enough. The last thing you want to do on one of the most important days in your life is to have your guests sitting cheek to jowl because of the lack of space, or even standing. Something like this is a real wedding nightmare. Always check the capacity of the venue before you book it, and make sure that there is enough space for everything that you are planning to do on this day.



When you start searching for the perfect location for your wedding day, you shouldn’t forget to take into consideration your budget. No matter how tempting a particular luxury venue is, you shouldn’t book it if you can’t afford it. Be realistic about your financial possibilities when organizing a wedding. Not every location will fit within your budget, and you need to be aware of this. You should determine what you can afford before getting in touch with various venues. That way, you will avoid the depression and sad feeling of falling in love with a location that is simply out of your price range. If you want a perfect wedding day, you need to be very careful when it comes to budget planning. Avoid the frustration of not having enough money for something important.

Wedding day photography

photographerWedding photography planning is not just about getting a photographer.  Wedding photo shoot succeeds if there is good planning. If you are holding a wedding or helping someone to plan, it is essential that you do the make the following arrangements:

Find an easy to reach location

Finding an accessible location helps to save time. It is even better if you can get  a location near where  every guest is gathering for reception. It will be easy to find anyone who is required to be photographed from the crowd within few minutes. At the end this will prove to be a lot of precious minutes when the photo shoot involves many groups. As you consider closeness of the photo venue, it is also essential for you to make sure that it is also appealing.

Write down a list

After getting a nice location for photo shoot, it is important for the couple to agree on list of photos so that the session runs smoothly. The couple should also share and agree the on the list with the wedding photographer before the big day. A good photographer will be able to give you guidance if there is anything important that needs changing.

It is better to have few variations of wedding photos to make sure that the session does not take too much time.  For instance, it is possible to come up with a list during wedding photography planning that combines related subjects such as bridal party, relatives or friends in one group rather than have them take pictures separately. It is however good to have manageable groups.

Assign someone work to gather photo subjects

There should be several lists of the people to be photographed. Give one to someone who is familiar with all the guests to fetch the to photography point when they are required by the photographer. This process hastens the photography session.  Let the person who is calling the people to start with the elderly guests so that they do have to stand for long when waiting for their turn. If the photography   session will be longer, let there be a place where the elderly guests can sit.

Plan for any bad weather

Do not be fooled by superb weather, it might change unexpectedly.
If there is rain during the wedding, it can ruin the photo session therefore it is essential to make contingency plans to have sheltered place to take photos in case there is rain. You can decide to use indoor space, have a tent   and decent supply of large umbrella for guest when they are moving to and from the photography point.
When you make all the necessary planed for wedding photos in good time, everyone will be happy and joyful on the big day as everything goes as planned. This is good especially for the newly married couple and it shall reflect in the pictures.
