How many venue visits have you made so far? If you’ve already booked your venue, how many walkthroughs did you do before you said “I do” to the venue?

    We initially visited 3 narrowed it down to 1 and then decided to look at one more and that just so happens to be the one we’re going with.

    We visited just one venue before we ended up just going with our church instead. Saving so much money that way!

    1.
    All of our options were places that we had seen/visited previously. So there wasn’t a need to view them as we chose selected on paper and then visited the one we selected before we signed

    Two. We booked our venue our first day of looking at venues. Its perfect for what we wanted, so we canceled all the other appointments we had set.

    I emailed with about a dozen venues and visited 4. It was a lot of work but worth it. I wouldn’t visit more than that.

    We saw 5. A couple we had talked ourselves out of in theory but wanted to see in person anyway.
    We had always liked our top 2 but seeing them in person really kind of amped it up. The decision was hard but I'm still concerned we didnt choose right. :/

    We just looked at 3 different venues. First was ok, but expensive. Second was great and expensive. The third was damn awful and expensive. We went with the second. Weddings are expensive...

    I have been in love with a venue since I was young and I took my FH by it before we got engaged and he thought it was beautiful. It was the first venue we looked at and the only. We signed the contract that day!

    I emailed several venues and we ruled some out easily due to guest count and budget and ended up looking at 4. I'm extremely happy with our venue selection, but glad we saw others so we had a better idea of what we wanted/what others were offering.

    It was a functional bed and breakfast up until a few years ago, when they decided to focus solely on having events. It was built in 1904 and has gardens that used to be a winery, but was converted to citrus orchards during prohibition. There are still grapefruit trees on the property. It has so much character that really makes decorations completely optional. We have full access to the house and gardens during the wedding and it is only us. We also get all 6 bedrooms for the night.

    Reviewed *no joke* 80+ online, talked to 50+ venue managers, narrowed it down to 5 final options, decided which 1 we were 99% sure about, visited the 1 and booked it.

    We visited 6 in person but 4 were all with the same catering company and all shown in the same appointment. We ended up picking one from the large catering company that is small, on the water, and very Maryland style.

    I emailed and talked to around 20 venues and ended up touring 9. Ended up narrowing it to about 3 that we were really interested in. We did a walk around the grounds of our venue before we were engaged but weren't sold on it. It was the final venue we toured after we got engaged and we ultimately decided upon it after comparing costs of the other two choices.

    We visited 3. We ruled out the 2nd because it was double the cost and we would only get the venue for 6 hours total. The 3rd venue was the least expensive and had beautiful outdoor grounds and bridal room and an ok barn for the reception. The 1st venue was a gorgeous barn with decent outdoor areas. It was an all weekend rental so we opted for that so we can setup Friday and don’t have to worry about cleanup until Sunday!
