Observe religious and cultural inclinations. Both families should agree in the chosen site.
A mosque, a temple or church is the norm for a religious ceremony. A more casual ceremony on the other hands can be held at hotels, community halls or even the home.
Choose a centrally located venue. Ensure that there is ample parking too.
Can the venue accomodate the size of your guest list?
Some locations, especially religious venues, have strict guidelines on attire, photography, videography,decoration and music. Do take note of these.
If a destination wedding is what you have in mind, consider transportation and accomodation costs.
Book your venue early. Make a decision and pay a deposit to secure it.
