Things to consider while shortlisting wedding venues in Chennai
These are the things to consider before booking a wedding venue:
Set your budget
Wedding venue takes upto 20% of your wedding budget. This should be the first thing for which the budget should be decided for.
Everything else in wedding planning can wait, but not the wedding venue. This is because most of the wedding venues will be booked for almost a year and it will be difficult to find one. Therefore, as soon as the wedding is fixed, go for a wedding venue quest!
Requirements for a wedding venue
Make note of what you prefer to have in the wedding venue. Note the number of green rooms, guest rooms, fans, AC, parking availability, Valet services, dining halls, kitchen and other things that you need at the wedding venue. Make a note of all the questions and clarifications that you would want from the wedding venue provider.
Check for the availability
This can easily be your main filter. Most wedding venues get booked well in advance. So you need to look immediately to get yours booked. If there's any chance, ask for some buffer time to the wedding venue provider before vacating the wedding venue. This way, you will have some time to relax after a long day's affair.
Some prefer having western toilets, hot water, or other special requirements. Discuss with your close family members who stay at the wedding venue about their preferences. Also check if the venue is wheelchair-friendly.
Explore and visit
After noting down all the requirements, explore the wedding venues near your household. It is best if you can personally visit all those wedding venues and speak with the owner or the person in charge.
The more questions you ask, the more clearer picture you will get about the wedding venue. Be it the extras provided or the number of guest rooms that are available, ask all questions that you have noted.
Parking space and valet service
Check the parking space and valet service provided. Enquire the transport facilities that are there around the wedding venue from around the city.
Installment options and interests
Check with the wedding venue provider about the installment and/or EMI options available. Ask the interest percentage that they have.
In-house service providers
Some of the wedding venues like resorts or hotel suites will have in-house service providers. Enquire about the price range, services, and other details. Also, enquire if service providers from outside are allowed.
The first thing anybody does the moment the wedding date is announced is to book a wedding venue. The obvious reason being the demand and availability. It is highly difficult to find a wedding venue which matches to all our preferences and budget. There are some mandatory questions to ask before booking a wedding venue.
Some criteria which the wedding venue has to clear is the security, room availability, kitchen availability, parking and valet services, etc.. There are different types of wedding venues available like wedding halls, banquet halls, hotels, resorts, barns, farms, etc.. Each wedding venue will have certain policies. Some of them will have in-house caterers and some don't.
Many people book the wedding venue around 6 months to 1 year in advance. It is difficult to find a wedding venue in such a case. Consider the wedding venue for destination wedding, it should be planned a year in advance, else the destination will be taken.
So much for a wedding venue, but don't get stressed. We take that from you.
The wedding venue providers from WeddingBazaar know how important the big day is for you. Our wedding planning experts make sure that you get your dream wedding destination with their art of negotiation.
