Small Wedding Venues

Intimate celebrations have special advantages. Guests are able to get to know each other, the bride and groom are more able to spend time with guests, and the small crowd makes things more intimate. Still, you need a venue to celebrate. Check out this list of our preferred vendors. Then, keep reading for tips from wedding planners on how to choose small wedding venues Georgia couples love.

The Guest List

How many people are coming to the wedding most certainly affects where to have the event. If you invite more people than will fit in your venue, you won’t have fun at all. You need space to dine, dance, and have fun. So that’s possible, when choosing small wedding venues Georgia couples should be sure to ask two questions:

1. How many people will fit comfortably?
2. What number is allowed by fire codes?

Being comfortable is likely the best consideration when choosing small wedding venues Georgia.

Keeping the Budget in Mind

When choosing a venue, you should keep in mind the cost of renting the facility as well as any additional expenses. Restaurants and hotels often have an in-house, ‘per-plate’ charge for food, but flowers and decorations are added expenses. Some venues are full-service, and everything is included in the price.

Still others allow you to bring in your own vendors and decorations so you can pick and choose what works with your budget. Be sure to price everything out fully and then compare before you decide. And don’t forget to add tax and gratuity.

What Style?

Another consideration before choosing your small wedding venue is what style of wedding you have in mind. Do you want formal or informal? Traditional or modern? Day or night? Indoors or outdoors? You may want to decide these things before you begin looking for the actual venue.

How Involved Do You Want to Be?

Wedding planning can be exhausting, so consider a wedding planner, even when choosing small wedding venues Georgia. Now, what type of wedding planner? That decision will depend on how involved you want to be in the actual planning details. To minimize your own wear and tear, you may want to use the venue’s in-house planner. He or she will do most of the hard work, leaving you to enjoy your time and the upcoming excitement. However, if you enjoy hands-on involvement, an executive or marquee hire venue may be a better choice.

Locking in Your Date

To ensure your wedding goes exactly as you’d like, be sure to lock in the date! Remember without your deposit and a confirmed reservation, you risk losing the place of your choice. Lock it in!

As you can see, there are a several details to consider when choosing a small wedding venue. To meet with wedding planners and to learn about venues, come to the next Georgia Bridal Show.
