If you are one of the many people who are celebrating this exciting time in your life, you may feel a little overwhelmed at the prospect of planning a wedding and choosing a wedding venue. With so many places to have wedding receptions in NYC, where do you start? The Manhattan Penthouse is a sophisticated place. How do you go about making sure you choose the venue that’s right for you. Keep reading for some useful tips on how to choose a wedding venue.
Before you start, talk to a wedding planner. These professionals have extensive experience and are likely familiar with all venues in the area. Voice your concerns, wants and needs. They can help you narrow down the list so you end up at the perfect venue.
Plan your budget. Before you even start looking at venues, know exactly how much you can spend. This will also narrow down the list, but you won’t waste time looking at places you can’t afford, nor will you have your heart set on a place that is not within your budget.
Create a vision for your wedding. If you are looking to have a modern wedding, why waste time looking at historical venues. Know what you want and communicate this with your wedding planner. They will recommend the best places to suit your needs and desires.
Consider the location. Also, consider where the majority of your guests are coming from. You want to make the venue as easily accessible as possible. The last thing you want is to have a lot of people on your guest list to not attend because the venue is too far for them to travel to, or there are no hotel accommodations nearby. Although this is your special day, it won’t be as special as possible if all of your friends of family are not in attendance! Have fun, and good luck in your search!
