Mackay and Whitsundays Wedding Guide - - Contents - Things to con­sider :: :: Top tip :: ::

THE­magic of a wed­ding can be made or bro­ken by your choice of venue.

De­cid­ing on the venue for your wed­ding is ar­guably one of the more im­por­tant de­ci­sions you will make for your big day.

It will also be one of the first de­ci­sions you make.

The choice of venue de­ter­mines the date of your wed­ding, the op­tion for themes, cater­ing, travel and ac­com­mo­da­tion.

It’s not a light de­ci­sion cou­ples have to make and there are a num­ber of things to take into con­sid­er­a­tion.

What is your dream wed­ding venue? Write a list of your venue pri­or­i­ties to help you de­cide. :: Is the venue you want within your bud­get?

Think about what is in­cluded with the venue. :: Do you want to get mar­ried in a church? If you do you’ll need to think of a reception venue close by. :: If you’re not get­ting mar­ried in a church, do you want to com­bine the cer­e­mony and reception lo­ca­tions? :: If you are need­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion, or sup­ply­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion to your guests, do you want that to also be a part of your cer­e­mony and reception lo­ca­tion?

Weather can change at any time. What fa­cil­i­ties does your venue have in place in case the weather on your big day turns a bit grey? :: If there is noth­ing, have a back-up plan for where you could go and have a way of eas­ily com­mu­ni­cat­ing that with guests.
