Choosing the best sites for your wedding and reception
| The perfect
wedding day has been pictured in your mind and dreams almost
your entire lifetime. If you're like most, you may already have
vivid picture of how you want your wedding and reception
to look even down to the last detail such as which flowers are
going to be included in your flower arrangements and decor. But
did your daydreams and imaginings include where you want to the
sacred event to take place and where you are going to celebrate
your union with family and friends?
If not, there are a few things to keep in mind when selecting the perfect
spot to hold your wedding and reception: budget, amount of
guests, theme and type of wedding, and whether or not you want
your ceremony and reception at the same location.
Let's start with the budget first. By keeping in mind your budget
throughout the whole decision making process, you can prevent
heartache in the end. Suppose you found the perfect dream
wedding spot only to learn that you could not possibly afford to
hold your wedding there? Likely if you chose to have your
ceremony in any other spot it would pale in comparison and be a
disappointment when compared with the one you couldn't swing.
On the other hand, what if you threw caution to the wind and indulged in
the more expensive site? In this case, you might become bitter
about your wedding day when the bills start to pile up or when
you have to forgo your honeymoon to cover the costs. These two
scenarios illustrate why it is very important to evaluate the
cost before investigating any particular wedding or reception
site. If it's over your budget, don't even look at it.
Your theme and type of wedding are also very important when choosing the
perfect spot for your wedding nuptials. If you are having an
informal country wedding, it would not make much sense to book
an elaborate reception hall. A better choice may be to have an
outdoor reception on a farm complete with a bonfire, country
band, and wagon rides for the little ones.
If you're just looking for a little inspiration and a list of great
wedding sites to investigate, your local chamber of commerce can
supply you with sites, historical and modern, that can be rented
for functions such as weddings. This may be a great help when
you're trying to find a spot for your wedding that is unique and
truly reflects your personality.
Remember, it's your wedding and your dreams. Do not give in to family
pressure or be tempted to take the first place that comes along.
Do your homework and you will be guaranteed to realize the
wedding of your dreams.
