Finding the perfect venue can be a challenge for some couples. The Styled Bride always recommends narrowing down your criteria before you start looking. First think about your guest count, if you think you might have 250 people don’t even look at a place that holds 200 unless you are committed to lowering your invite list.
Second know your budget, it is heartbreaking to find a place you love but can’t afford. Lastly, think about the experience you want to have. Do want everyone together in one room dancing all night – then a older mansion with lots of little rooms maybe not be for you. Do you love to explore and dancing is not your thing? Then you may like to have other options going on – either a museum or garden with spaces & grounds to wander. We also recommend these tips from Real Simple to start the hunt.
