So you’ve just popped the question and she said yes (congratulations!), but now you need to get to the next step (which she most likely planned for the last 10+ years) which is finding the perfect venue for your wedding. There’s no reason to take on the extra responsibility of inventing the wheel again, if you follow these 5 steps, it will definitely help you where other couples are struggling with their venues.
Create a budget
After the initial planning of what your style for the wedding is going to be and how many people are coming (etc,etc,etc) you should sit down and start crunching the numbers. You need to get a good idea of how much money you have left for the venue. Once you get a good idea of what you can afford it should narrow down your venue list considerably.
