Choosing your Wedding Venue

Walking into a wedding venue and feeling it’s “the one”, is one of the most exciting moments at the start of your wedding planning, and what we love seeing here at Bijou Weddings. But, be warned: don’t rush head first into visiting wedding venues without knowing what you want, or else you will be spending countless weekends travelling around the country and wasting your time. When visiting your selection of shortlisted wedding venues, be sure to take lots of notes, and don’t be afraid to ask plenty of questions. If you don’t know what you should be looking for, we’ve compiled the essential questions to ask your potential wedding venues. With so many different styles and locations to choose from, you will likely be spoiled for choice. We always say to go for the best, as you will only do this once! Choose what suits you the most, whether that’s a luxurious barn wedding venue, or an exclusive use stately home. Whichever wedding venue you choose, we can suggest plenty of exciting ideas to help turn your wedding dreams in to a reality.
