Virginia mansion weddings are a romantic way to welcome your guests to the Northern Virginia countryside.
Choosing a Virginia Mansion Wedding Venue
Congratulations! You’re engaged! You’re probably excited to get started on your wedding plans. One of your most important initial decisions will be choosing your wedding venue. Virginia mansion weddings are a great option to consider when venue shopping after you have determined the date of your wedding. These unique properties often allow for indoor and outdoor event space, as well as the integration of the Northern Virginia countryside as a backdrop for wedding ceremonies! Here are some points to keep in mind as you finalize your venue shopping.
Set Your Budget
Before you begin planning, make sure you set a budget or have a budget in mind. This is important during the venue shopping process, as this will determine just how much you can spend on different elements of your wedding. Attribute money to the items that are the most important to you and your fiance. If your wedding venue is really important, make sure you can allocate enough of your budget to pay for the venue that you want. If flowers are important, know the designs you would like to have and then budget accordingly.
Create Your Guest List
Before you can choose your Virginia wedding venue, make a list of how many guests you estimate you’ll be inviting. If you have a guest list of more than 200 people, you will have to rule out any venues that can only accommodate 150 guests or plan to cut your guest list. Keep in mind the total guest list is likely going to be larger than the number of people who will come to the wedding, but keep all of this in mind as you shop for your perfect venue.
