Booking Your Perfect Wedding Venue

Size is a concern,

Whoever claims they don’t think for height is mistaken. You want to select a wedding location that can hold about 60-80 guests if you have 60 people attending your wedding reception. Your wedding guests will rattle about inside, and the atmosphere will be lost. Why get a fantastic place that houses 150 people and not even half fill it. If you’re looking for more tips, Battery Wharf Hotel Boston Waterfront-Waterfront Wedding Venue has it for you.

Assuming you’re planning a DJ or band for your wedding guests’ evening entertainment, so make sure they have enough space to set up their instruments, ask whether you should imagine the wedding party dancing to see if there is place to set up for the entertainment.

If you want a major wedding brunch at the restaurant, talk to your wedding venue and inquire how all the tables will be organised, they will claim they can handle hundreds of wedding guests, but if they stick tables down the hallway, they may feel left out for your guests.


The place and reception will probably be the most costly aspect of your special day, but only if you choose it to be.

If it’s a grand Victorian house you have leased for the day or the nearby church hall, make sure you set your budget and adhere to it, based on what your personal preference is.

Large wedding venues sometimes provide fixed packages for their dinner, champagne, toast drink and evening buffet, with a single price per head. Before you book something, all places can provide you with a price list, check if there is a cost of renting the place, on top of the consumables. For Sunday – Thursday weddings, some venues charge less, while Fridays and Saturdays are more common wedding days and can cost more.

If you book a wedding venue that does not plan your catering requirements or is only a hall hire, remember the expenditures of everything else you will need to make it a beautiful venue, food, beverages, crockery & cutlery, decorations, DJ, service workers – all of them add up.

Spend hours mapping out the calculations and determining what fits the budget for your wedding.


When you’re satisfied that you’ve chosen the dream wedding spot, pay your fee, get a confirmation and make sure your wedding day is totally booked for you.

Before your big day, consider getting a couple of family members or good friends to see the place. Not only can it help them much more interested, you will get their views and feelings.

Be sure you meet the wedding venue a month or two before your special day to negotiate what you can and can’t do with the venue’s management.

Tell more about the hours from which you will use it, what time you need to be out. Talk to the caterers and ensure good organisation of the dining you like. Review what stuff would be offered by the wedding venue and what you are supposed to arrange. Stuff like a big silver knife or cake stand, if these are not given by the wedding place, when it comes to cutting the wedding cake, you would need to arrange them yourself in the face of an uncomfortable moment. Figure out when your wedding DJ will have everything lined up, all the little stuff require attention, make a list and ask your wedding venue all the questions.

Early Book

Ultimately, after you’ve invested hours hunting for the right wedding spot, and you’re satisfied you’ve discovered your ideal day, most locations get booked way in advance, even years in advance. Don’t get disappointed, book your wedding place early, or get yourself pencilled in their diary at least and ask if some other wedding pair inquires about YOUR date to contact you immediately!
