How to Create Your Own Dream Wedding Venue

Finding your dream wedding venue is just one of the many elements that goes into planning a beautiful wedding. Aside from picking the dress, your makeup artist, and the food you want at your party, you also have to think about party hall venues. Catering for events in itself can be exhausting–imagine having to try all that different food! While it can be exciting (and delicious!), other aspects, like finding your dream wedding venue, can take some more time (and can be equally as exhausting).

What happens when you can’t find your dream wedding venue? Fear not! While a reception hall might not be your ideal for a “dream wedding venue,” knowing how to transform it into one can be everything! Here are some tips for turning an ordinary wedding venue into the one of your dreams for a magical wedding ceremony.

1. Make DIY Decor

Feeling crafty? You can turn any wedding venue into something romantic and beautiful, and fit for a princess! There are tons of easy DIY crafts across the web that can inspire you. The best part about making your own decor is that you can save a lot of money and you can also customize how you want your decor to look! For example, while a DIY tutorial might incorporate burlap and red ribbon, you can change it to lace and turquoise ribbon! Whatever you envision your wedding to look like, you can make your own DIY centerpieces, wedding guest gifts, sign-in book, etc. the way YOU want.

2. Bring in the big dogs

If you have a general idea of what you would want your dream wedding venue to look like, but have a hard time conceptualizing it or actually making the pieces for the tables, etc. (some of us aren’t that crafty!), you can hire a designer or planner to bring your wedding dreams to life. Some wedding venues in your budget might seem a little dull, but with the right planner by your side, you’ll be able to turn it into your dream wedding venue (which will make for ahhhmazing photos!).

3. Go all out for the cake

If you can’t find a venue that will fit exactly what you want within your budget, you can either allocate more money from other elements of your wedding (photographer, etc.), or you can settle for a venue within your budget and opt for an amazing cake! You’ll be surprised just how much having a stunning cake when guests walk in can make your wedding venue POP!
