Modern brides want it all. The perfect decor, the best cake, an amazing DJ, and of course, a fantastic venue.
The venue is often the most expensive individual segment of the budget, especially if the couple is after a package deal. Most people will look at 50 or more venues online before calling or emailing to request more details. Many couples schedule at least 3 venue visits before putting a deposit down. This process is even more complicated when planning a wedding from afar.
One of our team members was recently struggling to find a venue for her wedding, and was dismayed by the lack of information available on most venues’ websites. There might be a few pictures from weddings or open days, but 90% of the time, the layout of the venue was unclear. Additionally, many shots just focused on one aspect of the decor. Picturing the space as a whole was impossible. Eventually, she was able to visit a few venues, but found that most spaces were very different than what she had pictured from her web search.
Those planning a wedding a wedding from overseas are in even more of a pickle. With elopements and destination weddings on the rise, many foreign couples start scouting out their perfect location online, and book without having ever visited in person.
