The selection of a ceremony site is entirely up to your preference, the style of the wedding, the number of guests expected and your religious affiliations. The popular venues are booked more than a year in advance, we suggest that you to reserve your special location before any other plans.
Your Venue Options
- Private homes,
- Community halls,
- Hot air balloons among others
Ceremony site fee
Most ceremony sites ask for a fee in order for you to rent a facility for your wedding. In some churches this fee may include the organist or choir, and or miscellaneous items such as kneeling cushions, aisle runner, and candelabra. Confirm what the site fee includes prior to booking. Beware of how many weddings a church can hold per day. As much as possible aim to have to first shot. It is stressful to do your church decorations in less than half an hour. You do not want to keep your guests waiting.
Some churches have a policy of having only two weddings a day adequately spaced out. Some churches can have up to four weddings. It means you only have 30 minutes (if the previous wedding is on time!) to transform your dream ceremony site.
Tips to Save Money:
a Have your ceremony at the same facility as your reception to save a second rental fee and transporting the guest from one venue to another.
- Set a realistic guest list and stick to it.
- Hire an experienced wedding planner.
