Selecting a wedding venue for a big wedding can be difficult, especially if you live in a busy city such as Sydney. Now that gay marriages are legal in Sydney, many couples have started booking event halls and wedding venues throughout the metropolis. There are a number of important factors that must be taken into consideration before you choose a wedding venue. It’s important that you choose the venue carefully, especially since it’s going to be the biggest day of your life! Here are a few tips to help you select the best venue for the wedding.

Space

One of your biggest concerns is going to be space; how many people are you inviting to the wedding? It’s very important that you choose a venue that can accommodate enough people. When checking out Sydney gay wedding venues, you should always ask the managers about the maximum number of people that can be accommodated within the halls. This means that before you start checking out different venues, you will need to make your guest list and come up with an estimate for the number of people that will be attending the event. Make sure that the hall doesn’t end up being too small or too big; choose carefully.

Pricing

Most wedding halls throughout the city are booked well in advance and remain booked around the year. You should start checking out halls at least six to eight months before the big day. The earlier you book, the better the price you are likely to get. Same-sex wedding venues in Sydney are in big demand nowadays so it’s important that you book as early as possible. Of course, some venues are going to cost much more than others. Keep in mind that apart from the standard rental fee for booking the venue, there are a number of other costs you will have to contend with as well. If the rental fee is too high, you will have to cut down on the decoration and food budgets, which may put a damper on proceedings. You can get pricing quotes from major venues throughout the city and then make your decision.

Décor

Most wedding venues allow you to hire an event manager or an interior decorator to help you out. However, some venues have a policy whereby they don’t allow you to hire interior decorators from outside; you can only work with the decorators on their panel. You should check out pictures of the events that have been hosted at the venue in the past and then decide whether the place is suitable or not. These are a few important factors to consider before planning your wedding.
