It is often the choice of place that will determine the date of your wedding and launch the official start of preparations. Between his desires, his budget and his Pinterest boards, how to sort and where to start to choose the place of reception of his wedding? Here are my little tips to help you.
Define The Style Of Your Wedding
A renovated barn, a hotel in the heart of the city, a rehabilitated loft, or a listed castle, the reception venue sets the tone for your day. And if you have a simple and bucolic wedding in mind, you might as well immediately eliminate from your list the private mansion-gilding-and-marble-fireplace option.
- Crucial point if any, your budget
Define from the outset the maximum envelope that you can devote to your wedding, and to the rental of your reception venue. No need to start dreaming about a charming Provencal farmhouse that can be privatized for 15,000 euros, if your budget is 3,500 euros for this position. The use of the wedding venues is important here.
The Number Of Guests
How many guests will you have? Even this figure will not be final until the week before your wedding, many places, only host small receptions of a hundred people. Beyond that, you may need to rent a tent, and therefore increase your budget.
In which region do you want to get married? Is this where you live? If you have planned a Catholic wedding but you do not live in the region, find out about the possibility of celebrating your union in a parish other than your own. Indeed, some refuse the marriages of external couples choosing a church for reasons more geographic than spiritual. In the same way, you can not unite civilly only in your town hall of residence, or on exemption in the town hall of a commune where one of your close relations (generally one of your parents) resides.
Does the place require the use of certain professionals? Before falling for a beautiful place, think about asking if certain providers are taxed. Catering, DJ, furniture rental, these points can really make a difference when you are looking for the perfect place. And above all, do not sign if one of these providers does not suit you.
Think about the additional costs. Is furniture such as tables, buffets or chairs included in the rental? Will you have to provide a supplement for a caretaker, heating, cloakroom? When you go in search of the ideal place, make a list of all these points, and the associated costs for each, so you can objectively compare each place and make your choice with confidence.
