Atlanta wedding venues offer a little bit of something for everyone. You can find outdoor venues as well as classic hotels or conference centers. You can opt for a country club setting, a refurbished old home, an art gallery, a rented out club, or even an industrial loft. The options in this city are virtually limitless, and to help you decide, you may want to check out some of the following venues and tips.
Talk With a Planner
Before you start looking at Atlanta wedding venues, you may want to talk with a planner. They have a lot of experience working with different venues in the city, and if you let them know about your vision for the day, they can often point you in the right direction.
Whether you work with a planner or not, schedule some time to walk through some venues. Prepare a list of questions so you can make the most of your time at each venue. You may also want to go to a bridal show. At these events, you can talk directly with the staff from multiple venues and take a look through their portfolios to see how other weddings have looked at their sites.
Focus on Amenities
The best Atlanta wedding venues are the ones that provide you with what you need for your wedding, and that differs for everyone. If you have a lot of guests coming from out of town, you may want your wedding reception in a hotel or in a venue that is near overnight accommodations
If you want everything available in a convenient package, you may want a venue that has caterers and a bar on site. On the other hand, if you already have a caterer in mind, you may prefer a wedding venue that lets you bring in outside caterers. Finally, if you plan to do the ceremony and the reception in the same place, you may want to rent an old home where you can have a garden wedding in the afternoon and an indoor reception in the evening.
Don’t Forget the Numbers
When looking at Atlanta wedding venues, it’s easy to focus on the beauty of different spaces and the amenities they offer, but you can’t forget about the numbers. You may want to decide how many people you plan to invite to your wedding before you start looking at venues. Have that number on hand while you talk with reps from different venues.
The number of guests determines what you need. The space needs to be large enough to hold all your guests, but it also needs to be small enough so that the room doesn’t feel half full.
Stay True to Your Tastes
Ultimately, your personal taste should dictate the Atlanta wedding venue you choose. Think about other weddings you have enjoyed and try to pinpoint what you liked about them. If there was something special about the venue, you may want that mirrored at your wedding.
To talk with representatives from multiple Atlanta wedding venues, come to the next Georgia Bridal Show. If you have a wedding venue, contact us. We would love to showcase your business on our website and set you up with a booth in our next face-to-face marketing event.
