Because wedding venues come with or without many different inclusions and extras it is difficult to understand their exact value when comparing them one to another.
There are several things you need to know before shopping for a wedding venue:
1. Please know your overall budget - Get a great budget sheet when you sign up for the free wedding planning book on
2. Add up the number of guests - and if you want the ceremony and reception at the same venue.
3. Whether you want a catered site or one you can bring in your own caterer.
4. Type of ambiance or theme - gardens, vineyards, ranches, hotel ballrooms, yachts, beach or Victorian.

5. Determine the type of ambiance/theme you want and select 3 to 5 sites on the web or from a magazine before you personally go to review them and compare. Understand most venues & services can be closed on Mondays. The wedding and event industry works all weekends.

Understand your budget and what you can afford prior to shopping. It is very hard on you to fall in love with a venue and not be able to afford it...or not have it the correct size for your guests.
6. Understand that many locations can come with their own caterer and recommended vendors do not hire these prior to looking for your venue.
7. Anytime you can gain the tables, chairs and/or linens in the rental, it will be an asset only if they are in good condition and you like them. We can spend a great deal covering up chairs and adding linens.
8.  This mobile and PC website offer local and destination wedding venues & services9. A destination wedding is best completed with a person in the area where you are planning your wedding. And a professional wedding planner, a friend or family member is very helpful.
9. Some venues require you to have a wedding planner/coordinator or hire their own recommendation.
10. In order to hold the date for you, a 50% deposit is required from most venues.
