Written by Julianne Cuomo, Director of Celebrations.

For a bride, choosing a wedding venue is one of the biggest decisions she has to make when planning her wedding. The venue sets the tone for the entire wedding day. It helps create a theme and the overall feeling for the wedding. Brides, do not make this decision lightly, be sure to do your research and see what other brides are saying when choosing your venue. Always check the venue’s reviews, they are very important when you are trying to find the perfect wedding venue.


Take our advice on picking the perfect wedding venue.

What to Look For First

Start by researching venues for your wedding online and through magazines. Some great resources to look at are websites such as Wedding Wire or The Knot. These sites help you find out more about wedding venues in your desired location. Read the venue description on the review site to see if the venue is appealing to you. You want to make sure your venue choice is compatible with your wedding vision. If you are having a country chic wedding you will want to choose a venue with a country feel. If you are having a more traditional wedding you will want to choose something more classic.


Read reviews for help on choosing a wedding venue.

The Reviews

After you find a few different venue choices that catch your eye and also go along with your overall theme, it is time to check out their reviews. There is nothing more truthful than hearing another brides experience. This is your chance to hear what other brides liked or disliked about the wedding venue. You can voice the positive and negative feedback with the venue representative so you have a better idea what you are getting into. Learning about what other brides experience with the venue takes away any unwanted surprises and also puts your mind at ease. You won’t waste your time looking at venues with a bunch of negative reviews, spend your time wisely by choosing a venue that has the perfect atmosphere for your wedding and positive reviews to go along with it.
