Location, Location, Location
One of the biggest decisions you’ll make when planning your special day is the location of your wedding. Where you have your wedding can have a huge impact on the overall success of the big day, so it’s important to spend time researching and looking through different location options.
Here’s a few questions to get your started:
Do you want a local wedding, close to where you live?
Do you want to have your wedding overseas?
Do you want your wedding to be centrally located?
Do you want to have your wedding in a rural location?
Keep in mind that the further your wedding is away from where you are currently located, the less likely all of your invited guests will be able to attend. For example, it’s unlikely your older guests – such as grandparents – are up to travelling across the country to attend your big day!
If you want to pick a location that ensures the majority of your guests are able to attend, consider the following aspects of venue choice:
Is it close to public transportation?
Is their accommodation on site or close to the venue?
Is it centrally located?
Is it wheelchair friendly?
Answering all of the above questions will help you choose from the endless list of the best wedding venues in Melbourne.
While many venues will claim to be the ‘best in the area’, it’s important that you take the time to look into each and every one to determine whether this is true or not. Look for reviews on their website and Facebook, and always enquire about seeing the venue in person if there are any that spark your interest. Nothing will be able to answer the question as to ‘is this the right venue for us’ better than seeing the venue in person for yourself.
