Tips for choosing a rustic wedding venue

When wedding planning, finding the perfect wedding venue is likely to be at the top of your list! The venue plays a vital role in the success of your day, especially if it’s a well thought out, rustic boho theme. it’s the big decision you really need to get right – and there really is so much choice!

It can be easy to become excited and fall in love with a place without checking the venue can cater to what you need or envision. Here are my tips to make sure you choose the perfect place to hold your boho-chic wedding.

Look for inspiration

Don’t go for the first place you see because you’re worried about settling a date. Shop around and make a list of the type of thing you’re looking for – and also what you absolutely don’t want. You can take a look at some of the best Instagram accounts for boho wedding inspiration here. There’s some great content there to steer you in the right direction!

Does it fit with your rustic theme?

You really need to think about whether the venue works with your boho theme. It really makes a difference – does the stunning mansion you have your eye on have outside space for the teepees you wanted to hire?

Narrow your venue choices down

Once you’ve shopped around, you need to make a shortlist. It’s true for some brides that when you find the right venue, you’ll just know it. You’ll be able to picture yourself there  and know that the venue will work with the rustic theme of your wedding. But there are still some very important criteria that you must keep in mind when looking around venues.

Details matter!

You must ask the venue what is and what is not permitted. Finding these details out early in the planning stage before you book is essential. Fairy lights, lanterns, and a handcrafted wedding arch will make for a magical evening, but might not be allowed by the venue. Find out quickly before you get your heart set on anything!

Finally finding your venue will be one of the biggest milestones in your wedding planning process. Whether you tie the knot in the characterful barn or outside in a charming courtyard, you’ll have an amazing day.

I hope these tips help, and I can’t wait to see where you’ll choose to get married! If you’d like to contact me about your special day, click here.
