When you’re planning an Asian wedding, choosing a photogenic venue is at the top of your to-do list
Weddings are becoming more and more customisable, and many traditions are now optional. But there’s one aspect of your wedding that is non-negotiable – finding the perfect venue.
The venue serves as the centre-point for your wedding. It will influence the look and feel of your photographs, as well impacting your budget for décor and clothes. With so many options to choose from, finding the perfect wedding venue isn’t easy. Whether you want a traditional Asian wedding venue with a large capacity, or a smaller intimate affair, there’s a lot to consider.
Many Asian weddings take place across several venues, so it’s important that all of them co-ordinate to give your wedding album a seamless look.
These are important factors in choosing the perfect venue for your Asian wedding:
Talk to a wedding planner before booking a venue
Talking to a planner before you even start looking at spaces can help you clarify what is and isn’t important in a venue. It’s easy to fall in love with a beautiful venue without considering its practicality for your wedding. Planners have the expertise to evaluate the capabilities of a space, how the layout can be used and how to decorate it. A planner with experience in Asian weddings will also be able to find you venues that regularly host Asian weddings. These venues usually have close partnerships with local vendors of food, entertainment and music, to ensure an unforgettable night.
Think about your guests’ experience
Impress your guests with a truly stunning venue that also meets their needs. If you want to stay true to tradition, you’ll need a large capacity venue with exemplary caterers. Try to find a venue that includes some services to eliminate hidden costs and last-minute stress. If you’re inviting guests from overseas, then a convenient location is essential. Consider a wedding venue that is near or connected to a hotel.
Stay true to your wedding vision
If you have an aesthetic in mind for your wedding, choose a venue that complements it. This may seem obvious, but sometimes the little details of a wedding can get in the way of the big picture. If you want a low-key, rustic wedding, consider a barn. If you want a truly showstopping day, consider an elegant hotel or manor house. Stylised wedding shoots are becoming more and more popular, so choose a venue that will provide the perfect back-drop to your theme.
It’s important that your venue is functional and beautiful. But ultimately, what matters the most is that you love it. Every couple is unique, so look for a venue that reflects both of your tastes. Choose a setting that channels your personalities, for wedding photos that truly capture your individuality.
