Wedding Planning: The Venue Selection Process


With 40% of engagements happening between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day, many newly-engaged couples soon realize “engagement season” quickly turns into planning season.

‘Tis the season to begin tirelessly searching for venues. Venues for your engagement party, wedding reception, bridal shower, ceremony, rehearsal dinner, farewell breakfast, and everything else in between. With the invention of Pinterest, many couples have an idea of how they envision these big events before they even walk into a venue’s doors. We at Inn on Boltwood also have a few important tips to help narrow down your venue selection process.

Determine your guest list
Do you have dreams of having an intimate wedding ceremony in front of a cozy fireplace on a snowy winter day? Or are you envisioning a larger elegant outdoor cocktail reception? Many venues can accommodate both. The event spaces at Inn on Boltwood range from a glass ceiling private dining room in 30Boltwood to a garden tent under the stars.

Consider your budget
It’s important to talk to your partner, find out what’s equally important to both of you, and allocate funds accordingly. Hint: many wedding venues offer special promotions for Friday and Sunday evening receptions. Inn on Boltwood offer options for every budget and style so that you’ll get the wedding you’ve dreamed of.
