    8 Important Things To Consider When Choosing A Venue For Your Colourful Nigerian Wedding

    A wedding venue is that beautiful place where your wedding is being held.

    It is important for you to choose the perfect wedding venue where you and your guests can have a nice time.

    Planning a successful wedding requires a lot of time and effort, and so that all your hard work does not come to waste, here are some things you should consider when selecting a wedding venue:

    1. Type of event

    The atmosphere of the venue needs to be in tune with your wedding.

    2. Number of attendees

    You may be expecting not more than 200 people but 250 showed up, it happens. The idea is to always try to get a place that can accommodate at least slightly more people than the upper limit of your estimated number of guests.

    3. Type of Guests you are inviting

    Ranging from social status to age, you should tailor your venue choice to suit these purposes. If there will be children present at your wedding, then make sure the place is well designed to accommodate them.

    4. Cost/Budget ratio

    At the end of the day, everything has to suit your wedding budget. In as much as you want to have a rocking space, the quality of food and music should not suffer as a result.

    5. Location

    If the event is to be attended by people from varying locations, a centralised location is ideal.

    If people will be required to travel, having good hotels/guest houses close to the venue is a great idea. Also, accessibility is very important.

    The place itself may not have great parking but if you can find other surrounding facilities that can serve that purpose, that will suffice too.

    6. Services and amenities that come with the venue

    Some questions to ask are:

    a. Does the venue come with good catering services?
    b. Can you choose to come with your catering team or must you use theirs?
    c. Is there a cleaning crew available or do you have to assemble yours?,
    d. Does the venue come with good audio visual equipment (projector, quality sound system, etc)?
    e. Does it have good chairs, tables, decorations?
    f. Are the Bathrooms good enough for you and your guests?

    7. Management issued venue conditions

    There could be some restrictions as to what you are or are not allowed to do at the place. Be sure to have these explicitly pointed out so as to avoid unpleasant surprises.

    8. Acoustics

    Basically, these are the qualities a room possess that determine how sound travels through it. It is very important that the quality of sound at your event is on check.
