Like angels singing! That is the feeling you get when you walk into the most pleasing venue for your wedding day. In fact, it’s all you can do not to let your brain run away with ideas of how you will decorate and seating plans. Sadly, sometimes, what at first looks seems like the most perfect wedding venue may not entirely be ideal in every way. A problem that can be heartbreaking if it means you have to go with your second choice that you just don’t have that connection with! Happily, the good news here is that there are often things you can do to make an imperfect venue into a perfect one. Keep reading to find out what they are.
When the venue doesn’t sit enough people
One of the biggest problems that couples looking to get married come across is when they find a venue that they love but then discover that it cannot sit anywhere near enough guests for the wedding that they planned.
Unfortunately, on discovering this, many couples immediately write off such a venue. This need not be the case, however! In fact, you will often find that even the smallest of venues have outside space in which you can set up a marquee that will hold hundreds of guests.
You can even use services like rent a tent to find one that is the perfect size and shape for your wedding reception. Something that not only will solve your guest seating problem, but also means that even if it rains, everyone attending your wedding will have a dry and warm place to hang out!
When the venue doesn’t offer the food that you want
For many couples, the food that is served as the wedding breakfast is fundamental. After all, it is the first meal they will have together as a married couple, and they will want to impress their guests!
In fact, this can create a significant problem, if the venue in question does not have the facilities to cater to the type of food that you want, especially if you are looking for something a bit out of the ordinary like fish and chips, or Indian food.
Of course, the solution to the issue here is to hire an outside catering team that can offer the meal that would make your wedding perfect. Although, you must negotiate this with the venue before you sign the contract. Otherwise, you could end up getting stuck with the meal options that they are offering.
When the venue doesn’t quite look the way you would like
Many couples are pragmatic in the way that they pick their venue, thinking about things like cost, and location compared to where their ceremony is. Of course, that means that sometimes the venues they choose aren’t quite what they would like them to be.
Happily, there are some easy fixes for this, and one that is particularly popular is hanging lit wall covering all around the room. In fact, this can create an intimate, magical feeling and just about any space. One that will just enough magic for a perfect wedding!
