Tips for Finding a Wedding Venue as Soon as Possible

Tips for Finding a Wedding Venue as Soon as Possible

Did you get engaged over the holidays? If so, congratulations! You are certainly not alone. Facebook recently compiled data to determine which dates were the most popular for couples to get engaged. The top three were Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. Overall, the social media site found that a third of people who get engaged do so between November and December.

How to Find a Venue for a Wedding Less than Six Months Away

While some couples do decide to stay engaged for a year or longer, others may choose to not wait as long. Unfortunately, this means that there is less time for scheduling, and there is certainly a lot to book. If you are planning for a summer wedding this year, the planning may feel overwhelming, but please know it’s not impossible and will all be worth it. Okay, so take a breath and clear your mind. The first thing you’ll have to knock off the list is the venue.

Yes, some of the more traditional venues will be booked a year or two in advance, but even there you might have some wiggle room. You may have more luck securing one of the more popular venues if you decide to have a midweek wedding. Keep in mind that management may be more than willing to fill a date on short notice due to sudden availability.

In addition, many couples are booking non-traditional wedding venues to turn their dream wedding into a reality. The truth is that all you need to get married is an officiant, your friends and family, and possibly an open bar. We have helped couples find amazing venues to get married on short notice, including historic sites, night clubs, mountainside resorts, and plenty more. These venues’ staff members are trained to handle events of all kinds and sizes, including weddings. We encourage you to utilize our event venue finder today to discover venues in your area that could serve as your dream wedding location.

If you are planning your wedding in six months or less, finding a venue may feel overwhelming, but we hope these tips help make the decision-making process just a little bit easier. Good luck, and we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
