How to find the perfect wedding venue -A bride’s perspective

Let’s face it wedding  is a very important aspect of life. We have all wished and dreamt of this day .All manner of questions will begin to race through your mind from the moment you said “yes” to your  boyfriend or future husband as you gaped at him wide-eyed with a smile stamped across your face (and your  heart fluttering). Questions like how can I find a perfect wedding venue? Where can be my perfect wedding venue among others. But dont worry about that anymore just join the passenger seat as we take you around. 

Perfect wedding venue
You immediately  get to know you  will need to have  a wedding abroad or go local . You might be brought up in   Tema community 25 Accra in Ghana , and spent most of your childhood weekends running around the countryside of Sakumono amidst rolling beaches  and waves . For these reasons, a Ghanaian wedding with its traditional meal consisting of at least six-courses and fine wines seemed the perfect fit.

Having decided on the region , you now have  to find the perfect wedding  venue. Everything about the venue needs to be perfect for your wedding.Greater Accra  seemed like the most obvious choice (you  found a lovely hotel set called Labadi Beach Hotel), but you had your mind set on the stunning Kempinski  Hotel also in Accra, which you once visited a couple of years ago.

Now here 5 things a bride consider

1. Estimating  how many people you’d like to invite to your big day, since not all places can accommodate a wide variety of wedding sizes. Nearly every venue will have a guest count minimum: “You become sure to aim low in your numbers.


2. Sitting  down with your fiancé and figure out how much you are willing to spend. Does  her homework and find out what the going rates are in her desired wedding location. Online venue directories, allow you to search by location, price, and venue type, among other criteria. Determining how much you can afford will help you avoid the heartache of falling in love with a place that’s well out of your price range — you don’t want to spend more than 50% of your total wedding budget on your venue.

3. “Checking out wedding planners’ and photographers’ blogs to see real wedding photos of venues you’re interested in visiting. Since they aren’t staged, you’ll get a much better idea of what things can (and really do) look like.

 4. Choosing of  wedding date. “Wedding dates can be significant for a variety of reasons; some couples choose to wed on the day they met, their parents’ or grandparents’ anniversary date, or for auspicious reasons that numbers have in their culture or religion. Others may pick a specific time of year and season but not a specific day,So  you become flexible with your date and choose an off-season month, you’ll often be able to secure the venue of your dreams at a lower rate. For example, you’d likely pay less for a Friday wedding in February than you would for a Saturday in June. Time of year, day of the week, and your engagement length will all impact your negotiating leverage with vendors

5. Booking of dates  quickly at preferable  venues, you keep calling around to check on date availability before going to see places in person.

The only things  that might go wrong would  be your wedding dress, initially, and the heat. The heat you  think of more as a mishap and something you really wouldn’t control at the time. Your wedding dress if  ordered was late and in wrong , so you will had to wait longer to get it in.

You now  have found the perfect venue without even looking for one! The idea of having a wedding by the waving beach , warmer temperatures and more affordable prices than the others could not have been more appealing .Above all else, and beside the stress, planning your wedding is satisfying and a raw experience. You find out who is truly there for you, you learn to compromise with your soon-to-be-spouse, and you can watch everything you planned to come together. Although there is something that is bound to go wrong, as a bride you will hardly notice. Because the only thing that matters at the end of the day is that you’re getting married to the love of your life.

H i   e v e r y o n e ! This is my very first blog post ever! And nope, I am not ashamed to say I have no idea what the heck I’m doing yet. BUT, I am learning everyday and can’t wait to share & connect with you all! So if you’re into all things travel, lifestyle, entertainment, and relationship, then you, my love, are in the right place! I feel like a first blog post should probably introduce you a little bit to the person actually writing the blog, right? Right! Welllll then here we go! I’m 21 years old and live in Tema Ghana. I’m just your average Starbucks &Target obsessed girlfriend who loves finding great deals . I overuse emojis like my life depends on it (specifically the laughing and heart emojis). I’m just about as awkward/clumsy/embarrassing as a person can come. & I’d like to personally thank years of sleep deprivation for my crazy personality. So basically what I’m trying to say is that I ain’t got the first clue what I’m doing (between this blog, travel, lifestyle, entertainment ,relationship etc. lol) and I am not going to strive to be perfect over here. I’m super chill and like to keep it about as real as it gets! Ya feel me?! So if you came here expecting to find great grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, or perfectly planned out professional posts, then you probably should have clicked away like 5 minutes ago lol. If I haven’t scared you off yet, and I sound like your cup of tea, then HELLOOO new friend! We will get along great! Leave a comment or shoot me a DM, I want to get to know you! So excited for this new journey together! Merci Xorlali
