5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Wedding Venue in Bangalore

A wedding venue could be many things, but for most weddings, it means a place for the ceremony, functions, and reception. When it comes to shortlisting a great venue to host weddings and ceremonies, luckily, Bangalore offers some of the great options. But to select the dream wedding location that perfectly suits your preference and taste can seem like a daunting task. Here are a few tips on how to find the perfect wedding venue in Bangalore.

Wedding is a celebration of love and commitment. But the pre-wedding preparations can make the whole experience a bit stressful. Right from selecting the catering service and finalising the food menu to deciding the perfect wedding venue, hosting a dream wedding can get totally overwhelming.

To help reduce your stress-levels, we have put together some important points you must ask yourself while considering a venue to host weddings, ceremonies or reception.

Is the venue compatible with your idea of the perfect wedding?

Deciding the wedding venue is the first step in planning a wedding. But before zeroing on a venue, it’s important to be clear about the kind of wedding you want – a close-knit affair or a lavish one? If it’s going to be a grand spectacular venue, open lawns or a resort-kind of a setting? Besides, do you intend to imbibe a specific theme to your celebration or if you wish to make it a simple family get-together? Once you are sure about your wedding preferences, start shortlisting a few banquets, halls, and clubs until you find the wedding venue in Bangalore that perfectly aligns with your taste and budget.

Is there any other wedding party scheduled at the same time in the adjacent hall/garden?

Usually, wedding venues entertain two or three ceremonies simultaneously in another hall or location. This not only creates confusion among guests but may hamper your own privacy too. So, before you finalise the venue, it’s important that you ask the coordinator a few questions like how many weddings or functions they usually schedule in a day and how far are the halls from each other, etc. Also, check if there are other weddings or parties scheduled to happen at their hotel/club on the day of your wedding.

Do they provide any complimentary space/room when you book the venue?

This is crucial, especially if you have planned back-to-back functions on the same day and at the same venue. You or your guests would definitely need a private room to themselves where they can rest for a while or get ready for the next function. You can always check or make a request to the venue coordinator to provide a private room on the day of your function.

What are the amenities available at the venue?

Before you finalise the wedding venue in Bangalore, it’s important to find out if the location you’ve shortlisted has enough parking space and also, if they offer valet parking services to the wedding guests? Besides, find out which all amenities will be included with the venue. Will they arrange for services such as catering services, décor, music, light, etc., because if the venue doesn’t offer you the amenities that will make executing your wedding easier, it’s time you look into another venue.

Are there any construction or landscape changes planned at the venue ahead of your wedding?

It is possible that the management team of the venue you’ve shortlisted plans to make some landscape changes ahead of your wedding day. Make sure their plans don’t coincide with your wedding date.
