Finding the best wedding venue for your day is something that needs to happen early in the wedding planning process. Your wedding to-do list will have lots of exciting (and some challenging) aspects to it, but we think that finding your perfect venue should be very near the top. We believe that finding the best wedding venue for your day is something that needs to happen early in the process. This article has been designed to help you find that perfect wedding venue, the easiest way possible.

Why Should I Book a Wedding Venue Early?

  • The best wedding venues get booked up quite some time in advance
  • Getting save the date and wedding invitations out early gives the best chance of your favourite humans being able to attend
  • The type and specifics of wedding venue that you choose will have a strong influence on the theme, look and style of your day. Making the venue decision allows you to make other important decisions without totally stabbing in the dark!

There are a number of ways in which to find what you’re looking for, whether it be a mansion wedding venue in Surrey or a magical, romantic barn in Buckinghamshire. Normally we’d advise giving all of them a try since not all wedding venues have the marketing budget to show up everywhere that you might look. To help you make sure you haven’t missed anything, we’ve come up with some advice on the best ways to find the perfect location to tie the knot.

Searching for a Wedding Venue Online

Looking for your wedding venue online is probably one of the preferred and easiest methods of finding the ultimate location to host your nuptials. There are loads of different websites available to do your venue search (including Google!), but getting your key search terms right is essential. A general ‘wedding venues in Buckinghamshire’ search term will bring up a huge list of every type of wedding venue in that specific county. However, if you make your search more specific by using what are called “long-tail search terms” then you will find the results are much more useful (and there aren’t as many of them to sift through!). This, of course, means you’re likely to find your dream wedding venue sooner.

As an example – if you’re looking for a wedding venue in Buckinghamshire that will offer you exclusive use of the property throughout your day then a useful search term for Google might be “exclusive use wedding venues in Buckinghamshire”. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a rustic, cosy, oak-filled barn in the same area then “barn wedding venues in Buckinghamshire” or “rustic wedding venues in Buckinghamshire” could bring up the search results you’ve been hoping for.

Given that virtually every building that you might be considering as a wedding venue is unique (or should be at least!), it can be hard to determine the style of wedding venue that you’re looking for.
