The Perfect Wedding Location

Selecting the perfect location

When it comes to planning your wedding, you might not know if you must choose your wedding location according to your venue or the other way around. Picking a wedding location should be a harder decision to make than choosing a wedding venue.

When looking for your perfect wedding location you might have to consider why your guests would travel there. In the wedding industry, there are wedding hotspots within 1 location. You will see when you type into google maps the location that other wedding venues might pop up. You can shop around the area to see which venue offers the best package for you.

A lot of venues do not offer fixed prices on their wedding. You can only view prices as you arrive at their venue. In times like these prices do matter and couples would want the best wedding according to their budget. At Makiti we have fixed prices for 2 years that can be viewed online.

Wedding Location

A lot of wedding vendors will give out standard included items. The rest is up to the couple to pay for and arrange. When browsing your next wedding location, try to compare what the vendor offer.

The location of your wedding ceremony and reception can cause some of the guests not to attend your big day. For that reason, it is more important to find the perfect area so that guests won't have to travel far.
