Asian Wedding Venues

When it comes to getting married, this is your first big decision together. Get the venue right, and you have the basic building block for a great wedding. But if you get it wrong, your problems will spiral. So before you even start to look around, make sure you both have it clear in your minds what sort of wedding you're planning to have - elegant and intimate or a grand spectacle. Whatever your style, there's a venue out there that will be just perfect.

Early considerations

One of the first things you'll need to know when looking for an Asian wedding venue is how many guests you want to invite. This will inevitably dictate the size of the venue that you can choose, as you don't want your guests to be crowded into somewhere too small or rattling around in a cavernous, echoing banqueting hall that is much too big.

Another key consideration is the time of year of your wedding: will you be wanting outside space so your welcoming drinks can be enjoyed in summer sunshine? But what would happen if it rains? Marquees can now be efficiently heated but don't necessarily strike the right note in the depths of winter. On a sunny afternoon, a spectacular view can make the perfect backdrop, but there's no point paying a premium for the view on a winter's evening.

And how important is the location of your wedding? Do you want it to be near home to make it convenient for family and friends, or is your wedding party willing to travel further to a grand country mansion or a swanky city-centre hotel?

Style and theme

The venue you choose needs to perfectly synchronise with the style and theme of your wedding. Some venues may be like a blank canvas that you can adapt and decorate with your own particular vision, but others will have their own distinct character that cannot be altered at all. If you want to be a princess for the day, an opulent stately home will suit you down to the ground; if you're looking for the wow factor you could choose somewhere unexpected such as an island in the Thames, a celebrated museum or a world class sporting venue like Lords.

Final Details

Once you start visiting Asian Wedding venues and meeting with managers, there are some critical questions. You need to know how much the venue is going to cost and when it is available. Then you need to consider catering - some venues will provide the food, while others will expect you to hire your own caterers. If the food is included, what will be on the menu and what will be the cost per head? If you pick a hotel for your wedding you should be able to negotiate special room rates for the friends and family who wish to stay there, but if your venue doesn't offer accommodation, you might want to check out what there is nearby and how your guests will get there.

There are literally thousands of breathtaking and beautiful Asian wedding venues up and down the country but finding the right one can be a daunting task. Never settle for a venue you're not entirely enchanted by and if you can't find what you're looking for, remember that professional help is only a phone call away.
