There are a host of wonderful venues to choose from in and around the Atlanta area. Each has a fine array of features and benefits to boast, some historic, others contemporary, with a chapel or without, indoor options or garden wedding possibilities, each unique, varied with their own unique personality.
I am aware in working with hundreds of brides over the years that value and service is key, despite the particular personality and features you prefer for your very important day.
I coach brides who I meet to be sure to look beyond just the personality and uniqueness of one venue over another, but to be sure of three very important aspects of making your investment in what will no doubt be the most important day of your life to date.
Three Wedding Planning Tips to get you started:
- Get to know the team you will be working with at the venue you choose. At my venue we’re sure to introduce our in-house team to brides considering Carl House. How you are treated, listened to and the follow up to your emails and calls is essential. A beautiful venue without a synergy with the team who works there is not the way to go.
- Before you hear the bottom line cost of your event, be sure to discuss all the aspects of your event that are most important. A great venue will work to stay within your spending range. Consider if you haven’t, the revenue for all aspects on your wish list, where you can reduce headcount, choose a different more cost effective date or talk with your planner about options to reduce cost in the various aspects of the event you most want. A savvy planner can guide you to similar options within your wish list while watching your overall costs.
- Don’t scrimp on the important aspects that you and your spouse want to reflect on when your special day is a memory; aspects that you’ll look back on fondly, be they great photographs, a spectacular setting or food that will have your guests reminiscing for years to come. Consider the investment in creating and relishing those once in a lifetime memories!
Best wishes as you plan your extraordinary and memorable event!
