Choosing the venue is one of the first wedding day decisions you must make. After all, your venue must meet your theme requirements, accommodate all your guests and be available on the date you choose.
As caterers, we work with dozens of New Jersey and New York wedding venues. Our partnerships guarantee you receive the wedding of your dreams. Take a few tips from us as you decide the perfect location for your wedding celebration.
Count Your Guests
A formal garden party can feel like home at Paradise Vineyard and Gardens of Chesterfield New Jersey. Alternatively, a casual setting like the one offered by Bayonet Farm in Holmdel, New Jersey provides a relaxed setting for your celebration. The theme determines which venue you rent and catering options you choose, so consider it as you search for available locations.
Set a Budget
The number of guests as well as venue amenities and location determine how much you’ll pay to celebrate your wedding. Even considerations like who provides catering, table linens and alcohol determines the cost of the venue. That’s why you need a set budget before you begin researching wedding day venues.
Do Your Research
Understand the Contract
Now that you’ve chosen the perfect wedding venue, sign a contract. Be sure, however, that you understand details like:
- What does the fee include?
- Is there a cancellation policy?
- Is alcohol allowed?
- Is there a private room for the bridal party’s cocktail hour?
