With so many fantastic venues in Essex, choosing where to say ‘I do’ can be tough. From charming churches and chapels to magnificent hotels and impressive stately homes, the options are almost endless. Read on to find out how to choose your dream wedding venue.

Choose your style

Since there are so many different types of venues to choose from, it is best to decide what style or theme you want for your wedding. Are you dreaming of a rustic barn wedding or have you always wanted to tie the knot in a fairytale castle? Or perhaps you want to step outside of the box and say your vows on stage at a theatre or even at a zoo? Find out what style suits you best and choose a venue that fits.

Visit as many venues as you can

No amount of photos can compare to visiting a venue in person. The only way to decide if it is right for you is to see it for yourself. So, if somewhere has caught your eye online, make an appointment for a visit. Many venues host open days where you can see their rooms dressed for a wedding. This allows you to picture how the venue will look on your big day.

Listen to recommendations

Recommendations are worth their weight in gold when looking for the perfect wedding venue. Reading reviews allows you to get real, honest opinions about a venue and the service they provide. Since it is important that everything runs smoothly on your big day, it makes sense to ensure that the venue has an excellent reputation for professionalism and efficiency.

Make sure it’s in the right location

Do not underestimate the importance of location when choosing your wedding venue. As well as making sure that it is convenient for you (you are the one getting married after all!), you will want to ensure that all your guests will be able to get there without too much trouble.

If you have friends and family coming from all over the country, it is a good idea to choose somewhere with excellent transport connections. If you are getting hitched in Essex, Crondon Park wedding venue is a good choice. Within easy reach of the city of Chelmsford and only ten minutes from the M25, getting here is easy for guests.

Consider the size of your guest list

The size of your guest list is an important factor to consider when looking for wedding venues. This is because each venue will only be able to accommodate so many guests. The last thing you want is to book somewhere only to realise that you will need to cut down your guest list, meaning some of your loved ones will not be able to attend. Before you even arrange a visit to a venue, check what the capacity is.

Not only should you make sure it can comfortably and legally accommodate everyone on your guest list, but you should also consider how big the space feels. How tight will seating be? Will guests be able to move easily through the space without hindrances? You need to ensure that your wedding will be a comfortable experience for all who attend.
