But, if this is not something feasible for you, then we have made some research work and we found out that: prices at nice and beautiful restaurants start from $2000 up to $8500, whereas other restaurants could charge from $75 to $200 per guest, depending on your preferences. At the same time, you could find some restaurants that rent their space for $750 an hour without a catering staff, while most of the nicest restaurants will name their price after you have visited and you have found out all their offers. The best thing for your budget would be to look for an option that would include many things in the same price. But, if you can afford to spend more money, than you should make sure that your dream wedding would come true.

This is something that can not be picked by a wedding planner, a friend or a relative; therefore you should totally be involved in this part, so that you will know for sure that you have found the best spot.

When picking the right wedding venue, you will have to be totally convinced that the aspect and the design of this place will work for you. Although you will bring the wedding decorations, which will embellish the venue, it is important to have something to work with, and not to pick something uglier, just because it has a better price. In other words, we want you to understand the importance of putting a great value on your preferences. The thing is that people usually go for the small price, thus ending up with a place that they don’t like at all. You should think about this thing because you will totally require something intimate, which you could connect to.

Also, you should make up a plan and you should see which are: the things you require before booking the place. You will definitely need food, beverages, a nice atmosphere and a beautiful décor. Some restaurants include the catering staff, whereas other just rent you the place. We have mentioned earlier that the price is highly connected to your preferences, i.e. you will pay much more if you desire something exotic and unusual, whereas the price will be lower if you will go for the regular thing. Our advice would be to keep it simple and opt for the lower price, because your guests will have a great time with or without fancy food.

As for the right season, you all know that winter weddings are cheaper than summer nuptials. Winter weddings are also called off season weddings, so you will definitely get a better price if you will get married in this time of the year. In the summer the bride and the groom could even go for outdoor weddings, but the thing about such nuptials is that they are very tricky so a backup plan is always necessary. Also, you could rent a wedding venue for a nice price if you will get married in spring or autumn, all we know for sure is that the view will be breath taking, in every season you would tie the knot.

In the end, the wedding location may imply a lot of things to worry about. But, if you are ready to make compromises, if you have an exact plan and if you know how to value your preferences, then you will find a great place to get married in.
