Now, this one can almost go without saying, but be sure to pick a venue that’s within or below your budget. While you may be tempted to splurge on the venue, it’s always better not to break the bank. While your ideal location may have breathtaking views, timeless decor, or an amazing menu, it’s not worth it if it’s going to put you in debt. It’s best to choose somewhere that you can afford so that you can use that money for other things, like the honeymoon for example. There’s nothing worse than blowing a ton of money on an expensive venue only to regret it down the road. That’s definitely not the way you want to start your marriage. So, while it may be difficult to stay within your budget, it’s well worth it, and also it’s a great way to help reduce the stress of both the planning and the wedding day itself. Plus, money is the last thing you want to be worried about on your special day!
