Engaged? Read This Before Booking Your Venue!
Author: Hockley Valley Resort

           

 You’re engaged!  Along with inserting the word fiancé into your conversations, you now have the rather daunting – but amazing – responsibility of planning the most exciting day of your life …  So many details, so little time!  Take your nuptials to the next level by choosing a venue that’s right for you:

Numbers Game: Imagine booking the venue you fell in love with, only to find out later that it’s not big enough to accommodate everyone on your final guest list!  Use your max number as a guide when taking into account where you want to tie the knot.

Timing is Everything: Think about the season in which you want to get married, and whether you might need indoor/outdoor availability.  Be sure that you can also be accommodated if inclement weather occurs on your special day – wet brides aren’t generally happy brides.  

Take Your Pic: Do you plan to have pictures taken on site?  If so, consider a venue with a picturesque backdrop, scenic view or original ambiance.  Over time, photos often replace your memories, so vow to make your photos a priority when choosing your venue.   

Meal Plan: Don’t leave your guests with a bad taste in their mouths, literally! Fresh ingredients and on-site meal preparation are essential for a memorable meal. Again, keep your numbers in mind here and make practical choices that best suit your needs.

Detail Oriented: With all that’s involved in making your day special, sometimes last-minute adjustments need to be made (knock on wood). Be sure that your venue provides you with an expert to handle anything that might come up, so you can just breathe and enjoy! 

At Hockley Valley Resort, we offer all of the above, and more!  For more information, visit us at http://www.hockley.com/Wedding-Venues.
