Six factors to consider when choosing the perfect wedding venue
- Published: 16 March 2023
Choosing the perfect wedding venue can be one of the most important decisions you'll make when planning your special day. It can set the tone and ambiance for your celebration, and it's where memories will be created that will last a lifetime. At the Par 3 Suite at Little Hay Golf Complex, we understand how important this decision is, and we're here to help you every step of the way.
The expert event planners from our Par 3 Suite venue have put together six factors to think about when choosing a wedding venue in Hemel Hempstead.
1. Determine your budget
At the very outset, it's important to establish a budget – or approximate budget – for your wedding venue before starting your search. This will help you narrow down your options and avoid falling in love with a venue that's beyond your price range. We offer a range of wedding packages to suit different budgets and preferences, so you can choose the best fit for you.
2. Consider the location
When selecting a wedding venue, consider a location that is convenient for both you and your guests. The Par 3 Suite is a wedding venue in Hemel Hempstead, making it easily accessible from London and other major towns and cities. While conveniently located, the Par 3 Suite is set in 135 acres of beautiful surroundings providing a peaceful and picturesque countryside feel.
If you have guests who will be travelling from quite a distance to celebrate with you, you may want to think about a location which has activities and attractions nearby, so you can all ‘make a weekend of it’.
3. Think about your guest list
Have an idea of the number of guests you will be inviting before viewing locations, as you will need to ensure your venue can comfortably seat everyone. The Par 3 Suite can accommodate up to 80 guests for a wedding reception, ensuring that all your guests are well taken care of.
4. Look for flexibility
Choose a wedding venue that can be flexible and accommodate your needs and preferences. Whilst we have a range of packages to suit all budgets, we understand that you may have something specific that you would like including in your day. Choose to work with a wedding venue in Hemel Hempstead that is happy to work with you – our dedicated team love adding bespoke elements to the weddings they plan.
5. Consider the facilities
What do you need your wedding venue to have so you and your guests can enjoy a wonderful day celebrating? The facilities available at a wedding venue can significantly impact your wedding experience. Our Par 3 Suite offers ample parking space, stunning outdoor spaces for photographs, and a beautiful function room with a dance floor and bar area.
Also, consider your wedding style and whether this will work with the facilities available. Do you want a formal or casual wedding? Indoor or outdoor? Rustic or elegant? Make sure the wedding venue you choose has the facilities to align with your vision for your special day.
6. Check for availability
It's important to ensure that your preferred wedding venue is available on your chosen wedding date, so have a date in mind, or be willing to alter your plans if you fall in love with a venue that is already booked. It’s for this reason that it’s wise to book your preferred venue before announcing the date of your wedding or making any other plans.
