Your parents, your grandparents, wedding vendors, and your wedding party are just a few of the people who will be excited you are having your ceremony and reception at the same wedding venue. The truth is, when you dedicate your time to decorating just one location you will feel less overwhelmed and you will get to pour your heart into it without having to focus on more than one location. Your wedding planning checklist will become a whole lot easier on you when you choose one simple location.
Easier for Out-of-Town Guests
If you plan to have any guests from out-of-town having your ceremony and reception makes it much easier on them. They won't have to find transportation to get from point A to point B. They can plan on going to one place and staying there for the entire duration
The Chance of Bad Weather
What if you book your reception at an outdoor reception that has no options for indoors. Then what do you do? If you book your ceremony at a place the has an outdoor and indoor venue you may be in luck. Chances are they will allow you to have your ceremony and reception indoors so you and your guests aren't stuck in bad weather outside.
Once your ceremony is over you and your guests don't have to worry about hurrying up to get to the reception venue. All you will have to do is walk on over and you're there. This will save everyone a lot of time and energy so you can dance all night long!
No Confusion with Wedding Vendors
If you have several wedding vendors you have hired for your big day having it all at one venue will also make it easier on them. For example, the florist will be able to set up your flowers at one place and no one has to worry about loading them into a car and transferring them from one place to the next.
Chances are having your ceremony and reception will end up saving you money in the long run. No limo/bus rentals, no ordering extra decorations, etc. When you save money you can either use it on your honeymoon, put it in savings, or buy the wedding dress/tux of your dreams!
When you are out shopping for the best venue in your area for your special day, take into consideration all the perks a venue that can hold both has! You'll thank us later!
