How to Choose The Perfect Venue For Your Wedding
Choosing the perfect wedding venues Sydney for your wedding is one of the most important decisions you will make for your dream day. It will set the tone for your marriage and influence your overall wedding theme and design. To make the decision as easy and stress free as possible, there are a number of key considerations you should take into account in order to avoid venue regret.
- Choose your idea location
Choosing a venue with an inspiring location that aligns with your wedding theme is the first consideration. Whether you’re looking for a waterfront venue, elegant ballroom or a unique and modern space, having an idea of your dream location can make choosing a venue easy. Sometimes it can be equally important to select a venue that is conveniently located for your guests, as venues that require long distance travel and overnight stays can be costly for guests. Doltone House Venue and Catering Collection are pleased to offer a diverse portfolio of wedding venues, with breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour and Hyde Park.
- Decide on a wedding theme
Having a wedding theme in mind before making arrangements for venue tours will save you a lot of time and effort. If you’re interested in a luxury setting, there’s no point in booking tours for rustic or industrial venues. Once you have decided on a theme, create a list of venues that are suitable and make appointments with their wedding teams to find out what they can offer.
- Research the venues reputation
Save yourself from disappointment and select a venue that has a wealth of experience in organising and executing weddings. This is especially important when it comes to catering. It’s not easy to plate up 100+ perfect meals at the same time. Choosing a venue and catering company that has a proven track record in delivering amazing event experiences will ensure you avoid any mishaps and disappointments on your special day. Facebook is the most useful tool for reading venue reviews. Make sure you read a large sample so you can take away a more objective viewpoint.
- Decide on your budget and guest list
Estimating home many people will be attending your wedding will greatly influence the venue that you choose. Whether you’re interested in an intimate setting for 50 or an elaborate function of 400, knowing the size of venue you require will make your venue short list much easier to manage. It’s best to underestimate than over estimate as if your final number of guests turns out to be smaller than what you anticipated when you sent your venue enquiry, you may end up having to pay for extra plates.
- Book venue tours
Once you have a list of venues that tick all the boxes with preferred location, style, size and level of experience, its time to book site visits. It’s a good idea to keep an eye out for open house days, where the venues are styled and catering provided to showcase what they can offer for your dream-wedding day. Doltone House is pleased to welcome engaged couples to our leading wedding venues all throughout the year. We also host a number of venue Open House events and an annual Wedding Showcase to assist our couples in planning their dream day with Doltone.
