Lastly, you should begin venue searching! It is so important to go on tours and figure out which venue will be the backdrop of your special day. Now we have so many venues to choose from! Romantic Rustic? Glamorous ballroom? Industrial turned elegant? Anything you can dream of, there is a venue for it! Selecting a venue is for sure one of the biggest purchases you will have to make for your wedding. Due to this, it is important to do your research about locations you are interested in. Prepare a list of questions that you need to ask the venue's coordinator when you tour. One of those questions should be "How many people can your facility accommodate?" Some venues base their pricing on how many people you plan to have in attendance.
Also you and your partner need to have potential dates and day of the week in mind while touring venues. Do not have your heart set on one particular date, the likelihood of it being available is very slim. Wedding venues book events a minimum of two years in advance. This means availability could be limited at popular venue locations. Being as flexible as you can with your wedding date while touring, will absolutely help to keep stress levels low during this process.
