8 Factors to consider when searching for the right venue for your wedding

When it comes to choosing a wedding venue, there’s so much to consider. To find the right venue you need to think about the location, transportation, possible accommodation, as well as your guest list and your budget! You'll want to check out the venue's packages before you commit to make sure it’s suitable for you. Let's help you find the wedding venue that will bring your wedding dreams to life.

How far in advance should you look at wedding venues? Once you know your preferred dates and budget, as well as your number of guests, you should probably give yourself at least 18 months to start contacting and visiting venues. This will give you plenty of time to sort everything else out ahead of the big day - but booking your wedding venue is the most important bit!

How much is a wedding venue? The cost of your wedding venue can vary. You could consider a dry-hire venue, where you bring everything in to keep costs down, or you could look for a wedding venue that offers packages that include lots of extras, like decorative items, entertainment and catering. Be honest with the venues you discuss your wedding budget. They will be able to suggest packages and options that suit your budget. The average cost of hiring a wedding venue in the UK is £5,406, according to our National Wedding Survey.

How do I choose a wedding venue? Start by thinking about the location of your wedding venue. Does the venue have the capacity to fit all your guests, is there parking for everyone, do they offer accommodation, etc? Do their prices fit your overall budget? Do their wedding packages cover everything you need? Consider your wedding day style. Does the venue work with the theme or style you have in mind for your wedding? The right wedding venue will bring your wedding vision to life.

What are the venue's limitations? Every venue sets their own rules and every wedding has its own unique needs. Don't leave out any details when explaining your vision for your wedding. The venue may have certain limitations that you may need to consider before booking, such as noise or time limitations, extra fees that aren't included in the total booking price, not allowing outside suppliers or catering, and even decoration limitations.

What kind of entertainment is or isn't allowed? Some venues may limit the use of fireworks, confetti or other forms of entertainment and extras that may form part of your wedding plan. That's why it's so crucial to go over every detail with your potential venue before signing. You'll also want to ask if you can bring your own entertainment, as the venue may work with certain musicians, DJs and entertainers.

Is there a special place where the couple can get ready separately? Depending on your plans, you might want to get ready at the venue and having a special room just for you is certainly a bonus. When you visit the venue be sure to view these rooms and if you want photos taken, be sure that it is well-lit. There should be enough space for you, your makeup artist or hair stylist, a friend or two and the photographer.

Who will be the point of contact? Having a good relationship with your venue's person of contact is paramount. They will be able to answer your last minute questions, resolve any doubts and help make the wedding run smoothly. You should have their contact information and be able to reach them easily before you book your venue to ensure good communication from the start.

Is the venue licensed for civil ceremonies? If you'd like to celebrate your ceremony at the same venue, this question is imperative. If they aren't licensed, then you'll have to look for an additional venue to celebrate the ceremony. If that's the case, be sure to update your wedding budget with additional venue fees and possibly transportation for your guests.

How to find the right venue for your wedding

No matter what kind of wedding venue you have in mind, you'll find something to suit your big day here! You can refine your wedding venue search by area using the location box at the top, or using the filters along the left-hand side of this page to make sure your venue has everything you require. There are over 2,500 venues in the UK to choose from, suitable for every budget and wedding style.

If you're looking for space for a marquee, large capacity or exclusive use, our filters will help you find exactly what you need quickly and efficiently. You can also search by venue type, so whether you have your heart set on a rustic country barn or a chic city hotel, we can show you the style of wedding venue you're looking for. There’s even the option to only search for venues able to provide overnight accommodation for your guests, making your wedding planning so much easier!

There are a few things to consider when looking for the venue that will make your dream wedding a reality. If you want a big party, make sure there’s plenty of space to dance, the right acoustics for your music and that your sound won't be limited too much. If you want to wow your guests with top notch catering, look for wedding venues that have bespoke menu options and creative chefs. Above all though, a good wedding venue is one that works with you to bring your wedding vision to life and helps you to have a stress-free, enjoyable wedding planning experience.

Perhaps you don't fancy getting married in the UK or you have your heart set on a destination wedding? We have a stunning selection of Italian wedding venues if you're dreaming about getting married in Italy.
