Find your perfect venue

You’ve found your groom. You’ve bought the perfect dress. You’re expecting a fairytale wedding. Now all you need is the best wedding venue. Having a perfect wedding relies largely on the venue. That’s why you should treat finding a wedding venue as if you are having a High Mountain Wedding. It’s where you will treat your friends and relatives to the most memorable night of your life. Here are some tips to help you search for the best wedding venue:

As soon as you arrive at a venue you will automatically have a certain feeling towards it. Trust your instincts. If you feel a certain vibe when you are at the venue then that’s a good start. You will know automatically if a certain venue is not right for you and your wedding. This doesn’t mean that you should not use logic when choosing a wedding venue. It’s the place where you will exchange vows with the man you love so it has to feel right.

A wedding is a very important event so take your time when choosing the venue. You should start looking for a venue at least a year before the wedding date. This will give you plenty of time to make the right decisions and change the venue in case something comes up. You can also try on some online wedding information about venues. You find an indoor type or maybe as grand as Tahoe Beach Wedding. If you give yourself enough time, then you can make the right choice.

The size of the venue is a very important consideration. If the venue is too large, the wedding will loose its intimacy. If it’s too small, it will be cramped and uncomfortable. Of course, the size of your venue depends on the number of your guests. So before looking for a venue you should at least have a rough idea of how many guests you will be inviting. Be as precise as possible. Try to keep the range no higher than 50 people. If you say you are planning for between 150 and 400 guests, expect a disaster.

Don’t forget the dance floor. This is where mistakes are made. If you are dealing with 300 guests, than a 10 by 10 dance floor won’t do. The more guests you have, the larger the dance floor will need to be.

One of the complaints people have when attending a wedding is the lack of parking spaces. Be sure that the wedding venue you choose has enough parking spaces for all your guests. Parking may be a minor consideration, it becomes a major problem when there isn’t enough.

Be sure to ask about the restrictions of the venue, if there are any. Some venues have time restrictions while others will let you party all night long. There are venues with decorations restrictions.There may even be restrictions about noise so you might not be able to hire a band or bring in a sound system. Check if the wedding venue will allow you to bring your own caterer, florist, decorator, etc.

Have a layout of your wedding. Before choosing a wedding venue, you need a drawn out plan. You need to know where you want guests to sit, where you want the reception area, the dining area, etc. Then see if the venue fits your layout.

Remember, with a well thought out plan, plenty on time, and a little research, finding the best wedding venue can be a piece of cake. Without these components, a nightmare. The choice is easy

New Wedding Trends!

Weddings that Give Back

Our society has gotten increasingly charitable over the years. With many couples getting married at an older age or after they’ve been living together, registries have been harder to put together as they find that they don’t need as much. Instead of trying to find something they want but may not need, they ask their guests to donate to one of their favorite nonprofits. Many couples are even using charitable donations as a more meaningful and personal wedding favor.

 Multi-Use Wedding Decorations

Wooden and calligraphy decorated signs have become more popular since 2016. Many of those signs are being reused in different weddings or given away to charities. However, we believe that the decorations of 2017 weddings will be more focused on a multi-use purpose. While they’ll be displayed on the big day, the ultimate location will be displayed in their future home together.

 Trendy and Unique Flowers

No, we’re not saying that peonies are going away. We’re just suggesting that they will be paired with some unique and more untraditional flowers. King proteas are going to make a huge showing, as well as moss, berries, and jewel-colored florals.

 The Main Attraction

Backdrops at the reception and ceremony are going to be more decadent and aimed to act as a major focal point of the entire wedding. These focal points may come in the form of a floral or greenery backdrop, a building, ribbons, or even an art piece.

Keeping it Intimate and Surprising

Fewer couples are opting for a large extravagant wedding. We’re betting 2017 will be the year of destination and city hall weddings.

Wedding Trends for 2017

1. Say Yes to Greenery

Look, we love flowers just as much as the next girl. Peonies, hydrangeas, ranunculus, all to die for. However, there’s something to be said about an all green wedding. Not only is it more cost effective, but it adds a more earthy, simplistic, elegant feel to the ceremony and reception. Consider adding a garland down your aisles or table. Spice it up with some intermittent candles or even some flowers (see above – we couldn’t help ourselves).

2. All White Wedding Trends with a Pop

All white weddings started to become popular in 2016. However, 2017 is bound to take it one step further by adding in a signature color or pattern to liven up the mood. Be ready for more gorgeous and unique mix-matched all-white bridesmaids dresses. Keep an eye out for more lip color, colored florals, greenery (see number 1), marble patterns, and the like. 2017 brides are about to make the classic theme more specialized and individualized and we can’t wait to see what happens!

3. Splitting the Bill

For decades, the bride’s family footing the entire bill has been a tradition. We think the message of 2017 will be equality. No longer will that expense be solely on the bride’s family, the groom’s family will begin chipping into the budget as well!

4. Splashes of Watercolor

Watercolor has become more of a trend lately, outside of just weddings. It’s about time they get more incorporated into these special moments! We are expecting to see this wedding trend on wedding invitations, cakes, menus, and programs.

5. Metallic Vintage Glam

Vintage Glam and metallic touches were both big touches and wedding trends in 2016. In 2017 we see a slight shift happening. Instead of the typical silvers and golds, they’re being replaced by rose golds, champagnes, and bronzes that will be understated and glamorous additions to the weddings.
