While every wedding-related decision plays a part in crafting your big day, there are a few choices that make a more significant impact than others. One of the biggest? The wedding venue. A wedding venue can set a tone for the entire wedding day. Couples should choose wisely, as it's all about making sure that the venue ticks all of the boxes.
Choosing a venue will be one of the first wedding planning moves a couple will make. The choice of the venue will come down to the couple's personal preference. If a bride and groom are particular when it comes to the wedding venue, the earlier the couple books it, the better. Great venues get booked up 12-18 months in advance.
Capacity limits can make or break a venue. Smoky Mountain wedding venues can accommodate many different types of weddings, from micro weddings to lavish affairs. Couples should be considerate of the guest count and chose an appropriate venue.
Transportation details are all about crafting a positive guest experience. Are there enough parking spaces at the venue for your guest count? Are there specific transportation requirements to get guests to and from the site? It's imperative to guarantee that friends and family can travel to and from the event without any discomfort.
Wedding couples should choose a space that fits their style and personalities. With multiple Smoky Mountain wedding venues, a couple can choose between many options. There are classic venues with indoor amenities or adventurous venues with outdoor pavilions and epic mountain views.
The average wedding couple allocates up to 20% of the budget to a wedding venue. Much of a wedding venue budget depends on what the venue includes in the fee. Are tables, chairs, and wedding decor included? Some sites don't provide full service (catering, bar, and staffing), which typically results in a lower costs.
Rainy Day Back-Up Plan
Many Smoky Mountain wedding venues provide wedding couples with multiple locations and back-up options for ceremonies and receptions. Couples need to be reminded that the mountains provide a beautiful view, but also offer rain clouds. Confirming those rainy-day options with a venue is a must.
