The wedding venue you choose is an important decision for your wedding day. Once you decide on the wedding venue you want, book your date early. Wedding venues fill up fast, especially when your wedding date is a popular one. After picking a place to have your wedding, you'll have to decide on the different vendors you want. Planning your wedding day doesn't have to be overwhelming. A good wedding venue is going to have vendors that they prefer to work with, and they will share this list of wedding vendors with you to help you find your photographer, caterer if you need one, DJ and florist.
Planning Your Food
If your wedding venue has a catering service, figuring out the food you are going to have at your wedding should be straight forward. Ask your wedding venue about menu options and go for a taste test if one is offered. You can create a menu for your guests within a budget range, or choose menu items that you want for the day. If your wedding venue does not offer food services, you can ask about local caterers to handle the meal at your wedding venue.
Your Wedding Photographer
Many wedding venues have preferred photographers who know the space and who have the experience with the venue as a wedding photographer. This is beneficial to you for a number of reasons. Your photographer will know where to set up their equipment and know where to set up your wedding party for some great formal shots. A photographer familiar with the wedding venue has an advantage and can spend more time taking pictures than trying to find good locations.
Choosing a DJ or Wedding Band
Your wedding venue may have a wedding band or DJ that does a great job every time they work for a wedding at the venue. Your DJ or wedding band can make or break the fun you have at your wedding. When your wedding venue has a strong recommendation based on what you want for your wedding day, planning is easier when you take the recommendation and hire the one your wedding venue suggests.
When you work with your wedding venue on finding local vendors, you are going to have a wedding day that flows well. Preferred vendors know the venue, and they have already done the hard work of problem-solving issues that arise when working with a new place.
