Which North Carolina Wedding Venue Fits in Your Wedding Budget?

 

When it comes to wedding planning, the first things couples have to do before anything else is decide on a wedding budget. Once a budget is agreed upon, the next step is to start researching wedding planners and wedding venues. This is where the wedding planning process can become complicating, challenging and at time overwhelming. Why? Because you can seriously spend hours researching wedding venues. Our previous blog, Which North Carolina Wedding Venue fits your Wedding Style, will help you get started on your search. Next, you have to figure out which venue fits within your wedding budget.

How much does it cost?

There are a few ways you can figure out what a wedding venue will cost.

Look online

This will be helpful but only for those venues that have their prices listed. Not all wedding venues list their wedding packages on their website. Many venues will have varying prizes depending on the guest count, day of the week, and month of the year. Some venues have multiple locations for ceremony and reception which can be a variable when it comes to cost. Other venues had catering costs included so those prices will look higher but could end up costing less in the long run than if a couple were to hire an outside catering company. There are many factors to consider when look at wedding venue costs online.

Attend a Wedding Show

Attending a wedding show can be very helpful in narrowing down your list of potential wedding venues. Couples have the opportunity to talked to event coordinators on the spot and have their questions answered right away which will save a lot of time. Trying to contact venues via email creates a back and forth conversation that can take days or weeks to get all of your questions answered. Also, many times wedding pros will offer discounts for booking services from a wedding show. This can be a great way to save money on your overall wedding budget.

Work with a Wedding Planner

Hiring a wedding planner is very highly recommended. They are professionals and know all the right questions to ask. They work with many different wedding venues and will often times be able to easily recommend venues based on your wedding style and budget.
