Event Spaces 101: How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Space

August 25, 2022 Erica Maurer

Over 2.5 million weddings are expected to happen in 2022 alone, the largest amount since 1984. The wedding industry is booming, which is great for the economy but makes it harder to land the perfect venue for your wedding. You need to start looking at different event spaces as soon as possible to make sure you have the best options.

So, keep reading to find out everything you need to know to decide between event spaces for your wedding.

Location Matters

When you're planning your wedding, the first thing you need to decide is where it's going to be. 

Some other things to think about before choosing a venue:

  • How close is the nearest airport?
  • Are there any hotels or accommodations near your venue?
  • Is the venue accessible for people with disabilities?
  • Is there enough parking?
  • Does your guest know the area well?

While making it as easy as possible for your guests shouldn't be your main concern, it is important to think of their comfort as well while planning your wedding. This might simply mean you need to give your guests extra travel or accommodation information along with their invitation.

Consider the Guest Count

When it comes to your wedding venue, size definitely matters. So if you haven't finalized your guest list, you need to at least have a good estimate of how many guests will be in attendance. A lot of venues will require a deposit based on the estimated guest count, so make sure to have this done!

Once you know how many guests will be coming, you need to make sure your venue can fit that amount of people along with tables and decorations. You don't want your guests to look like sardines in a can. But you also don't want a venue that's so big that it feels empty and lacking.

Consider Event Trends

When picking your venue, it's a good idea to talk to your event planner to find out if there are any notable trends you need to be aware of. This doesn't mean you need to incorporate the trend into your wedding, but it can give you a better idea of what other people are looking for in events.

Event Spaces Made Easy
