Swansea Wedding Reception Planning: Choose the Venue First

Swansea Wedding Reception Planning: Choose the Venue First

swansea wedding reception planningPeople get married just about anywhere these days. They celebrate their weddings in barns, backyards, and ballrooms. Honeymoons can be held in trailers, tents, and temples. When you start planning your special day, take time to think about where you want to be. Choose the MA wedding and banquet facility carefully to ensure that there is enough space for you and all of your guests, as well as the right decor, mood, and amenities to host the wedding of your dreams.

A premier wedding venue should have lots of options for couples to choose from with regard to menu, decorations, vendors, and space. Don’t just settle for small banquet rooms in Swansea that require you to cut people from your guest list or sacrifice staging ideas that you want to incorporate. Visit Venus de Milo for all of your Swansea wedding reception planning needs. We have space for small and large weddings, offer a wide range of amenities and services, and have more than five decades of experience serving couples in the Southcoast region.

Know How Much You Have to Spend

Before you do anything, you need to have a budget. Sit down together and figure out how much you have for planning a wedding ceremony and reception. Consider all of the aspects, including the wedding dress, flowers, decorations, the venue, food, and the cake. If you are hiring professional photographers, musicians, a DJ, or a specific bakery, take into consideration all of those costs as well. Charges for officiants, valet parking, photo booth attendants, wait staff and other services should also be included in your list.

Whether you have family members who have volunteered to help pay for your wedding, significant savings that you have been contributing to for many years, or will be taking out a loan, be sure to put all of your money together, so you know exactly how much you’ve got. Take into consideration that most couples usually start planning a year in advance so you can add in more finances along the way, if necessary. Be careful not to overspend or cut yourself short, as money troubles are not the way you want to start a marriage.

Tour the Local Venues

Once you know how much you have to spend on your Swansea wedding reception planning, you can start to schedule tours. When you look at a MA wedding and banquet facility, be sure to ask questions and learn all you can about what is included and find out about all of the amenities and options that are available. Ask about vendor policies and request a list of pre-vetted vendors that the venue recommends reducing the amount of time you will have to spend ensuring that the vendors meet the venue’s insurance requirements.

Once you choose a location, be sure to put down a deposit right away and lock in your date. Ask about busy wedding seasons, special events going on in the local area, or anything else that might interfere with your wedding date. Avoid holiday weekends and local celebrations to ensure that your guests will be able to attend, even if they are coming from out of state. Ask about local hotels and restaurants that you might be able to use in the weeks and days leading up to the wedding for things like bridal showers and wedding rehearsals.
