The number of options for planning a wedding can feel overwhelming and make elopement sound like an attractive choice, but it doesn't need to become a headache fuelled by family disputes. The first decisions you make about your wedding are the most difficult, the rest becomes much easier and less stressful as everything falls into place.
Find out as much as you can about a venue before deciding whether to visit so you don't have a wasted journey. Whilst there may be dozens of choices online, you will hopefully be able to reduce the options to a manageable number based on price, noise restrictions and any food and beverage restrictions i.e., do you need to use the venues caterer and drinks supplier as part of the contract? Once you have checked availability and removed those venues that don't meet your requirements, it is likely you'll only need to visit about three venues in person.
You don't have to fall in love with everything about the wedding venue, though if you do your decision is easy. Clearly you should like the venue and picture yourself getting married there, but if there are some aesthetics you don't like you'll need to weigh up the pros and cons. A simple pros and cons list will likely come up with the venue that's good for you.
Whilst it's already been said that you don't need a color theme at a wedding, you'll be looking at color when you're choosing your wedding and bridesmaid dresses, ties, flowers, linens etc. If you've a color in mind, that's great. If you're struggling to make a decision, consider the colors you're attracted to, that make you happy. Look at wedding photos from your chosen venue for inspiration.
Remember, not everything has to match. No one will care if your bridesmaid's dresses clash with your tablecloths. And truthfully, even if you do match your colors, most of your guests won't notice the attention you've given to match the napkins with the bridesmaids shoes.
If you don't enjoy planning the aesthetics, candles on white tablecloths works well, because everyone looks amazing in soft light.
Catering and beverages are the two things you do need to get right on the day. Are your guests being fed at a reasonable time? Does the food taste good and is there enough food for everyone? Is there enough alcohol.
Is the music playlist something your guests can dance to. It doesn't matter if music is via your tablet, a DJ or live band, you'll want to have music that caters to everyone.
