Where to hold the wedding is one of the first things to decide, probably immediately after the engagement, since venues are often booked up to a year in advance. The wedding planners and DJ Service from Paso Robles has published some tips to help couples choose the location of their wedding and avoid some of the headaches and disappointment when their first choice is not available.
“The first thing a couple needs is to be flexible,” said Michelle Ortiz, co-owner of the wedding planning service from Music Makers DJ Services. “Start with outlines for Plans A, B, and C, then fill in the details once the venue is booked.”
Three things calculate into the final wedding location, the vision, how many guests can the venue accommodate and how much does it cost just to rent the venue. Food and beverages for the wedding party and guests can be figured in a little later.
Most couples, especially the bride, has a vision of the perfect wedding; someplace on a beach at sunset, maybe in a castle-like setting, or outdoors among trees. Instead of jumping right into starting the guest list, spend some time focusing on the vision about the location until it becomes clear and solid.
It is wise to have a second and third choice. What if the dream is to share your vows at sunset on the beach, but when the search begins, there are no beach venues available? What are the next choices? If the first choice were the beach then an outdoors wedding would seem to be the theme. Are parks available? Which wineries and resorts accommodate outdoor weddings? Some ranches and farms have small wedding venues in amazing settings. Prioritize the desired settings in the order of preference.
Sharing these visions with the wedding planner is the next step to finding the perfect location. California’s Central Coast has a venue for every dream from that beach wedding to old world villas in wine country to small intimate outdoor settings. There are venues for traditional weddings and original theme weddings. The wedding planners from the Paso Robles DJ service know all of the popular venues and where to find those best-kept local secret venues.
Wedding planners help create a list of the venues that match the dream wedding. Once this list is finished then create the guest list and be prepared to adjust the list as the venue search proceeds.
The size of the guest list does not have to dictate the venue. If the perfect venue only accommodates 50 people and there are 300 on your guest list, think about holding the reception somewhere else after the wedding. Video the wedding ceremony and show it during the reception, maybe just as the bride and groom are arriving or just before the first dance.
Every wedding plan is going to need some adjustments before the big day, but with alternative plans already sketched out the day can be just as perfect and romantic as the dream.
