WEDDING CEREMONY VENUES

Selecting from the many Wedding Ceremony Venues Melbourne has to offer can be a lot more difficult than you might expect. You can’t just walk into the venue and book it right off the bat, but you need to shop around, compare prices and services and wait to make the right choice.

Wedding Ceremony Venues

The truth is that choosing a wedding venue is no small task, so here are a few things to consider when visiting the many wedding ceremony venues Melbourne can provide:

CONSIDER THE LOGISTICS

While a wedding venue out in the Yarra Valley or the Mount Dandenongs may make for beautiful wedding photos, imagine how hard it could be to chauffeur all of your guests out to the venue. If you have dozens of guests arriving from outside Melbourne, you can see what a nightmare this would be. Consider other elements of logistics such as bathroom facilities, accessibility, parking, security and proximity to the part of town where your guests will be staying.

 

FULL SERVICE OR NOT?

Some venues offer full-service, which means everything from the venue to the officiant to the food to the entertainment is provided. These venues will often cost less than venues that do not offer full service. If you’ve found a venue that has beautiful décor but does NOT provide everything you’ll need for the wedding, you could end up spending a lot more hiring third-party catering, music and entertainment. That’s not to say that you should ONLY book full-service venues, but it’s important to count the cost.

 

TIME OF DAY

Spending a day at your prospective Wedding Ceremony Venues can give you an idea of what it’s like at various times throughout the day. Say you plan to get married in the afternoon but the setting sun could ruin the photography at certain beautiful locations around the venue. Getting married in the morning may be a better option, particularly if you can snap the sun rising over the hills at just the right time. Consider what is the best time of day for your wedding, and stroll through the venue at that time to get a feel for what it’s really like.

 

FIND OUT ABOUT THE DECOR

If you’re very particular about the wedding décor you want on your big day, you’ll be able to compare your ideal décor with that of the venue you are considering. If you’re not too particular, however, the venue itself may be able to offer you a few ideas to help you find the perfect ambience for your wedding. It’s worth discussing with the event planners at the wedding venues you’re considering.

 

COME PREPARED WITH A LIST OF QUESTIONS

Make a list of questions you want to ask the venues and bring that list along with you. It’s better to ask too many questions rather than too few, as it will ensure that you can find out everything you need to know about the various wedding locations that you’re thinking about.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT DAY FOR YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY VENUES

 THINK ABOUT THE EVENT ITSELF

What’s the purpose of the event? Is it a celebration, the roll-out of a new product, or a wedding? The event will often dictate the date. Perhaps it won’t give you a specific day of the week/month, but you’ll know what time of year is the best to hold the event.

 PLAN WITH PLENTY OF TIME

Unless you’re an event-planning master, you need at least 4-6 months to pull off your event. In some cases (weddings, for example), it’s better to give yourself 8 to 12 months before the date of the event. Plan a date that gives you plenty of time to organize the event.

  CONSIDER HOLIDAYS

Holidays can be either a great or a terrible time to host your event. Some holidays are perfect because your guests won’t have to go to work the next day, so they’ll have time to recover from a late night party. Other holidays are terrible because the city fills up around this time, lots of other events are taking place, and the cost of vendors and venues skyrockets. Once you know more or less what time of year you want to host the event, look into the holidays around that date. See if the holidays help or hinder your party-planning!

  THINK ABOUT YOUR GUESTS 

Are you organising an event for working professionals, stay at home mothers, families with small children, or university students? Each guest list will require a different date for a party. For example, events for children and students are often best during the summer and winter holidays. Working professionals will have a hard time attending an event most weekday evenings. Think about the dates (day of the week/month and time) that works best for your guests.

 CONSULT YOUR PARTICIPANTS

Your guests aren’t the only ones whose schedules you have to consider. You also need to think about the VIP guests, speakers, entertainment, presenters, and other participants who will have to attend the event. Their schedules may be more booked at certain times of the year, or the cost of traveling will be significantly higher.

When trying to plan a date for your event, it’s vital you take these five elements into account. Our Red Scooter experts use these points to choose the date that works best for all our events!
