How to Choose a Wedding Venue

Choosing the right wedding venue is one of the most important decisions you will make when planning your big day. It sets the tone for your entire wedding and creates the backdrop for all of your memories. To help make this decision a little easier, here are the top three things to consider when choosing your wedding venue.
  1. Location, Location, Location: When choosing a venue, it is important to consider the convenience of the location for you and your guests. You want to make sure that it is easy for everyone to get to, that’s there is enough accommodation for your guests, that any special requirements are catered for (e.g./ for any guests, including the likes of grandparents or wheelchair guests that need special requirements).
At Airtree Golfers Resort we have sleeping capacity for 35 guests in our 9 self contained rooms.  For the overflow of guests we have a very large camping area which can host caravans, swags, bell tents and more! The best thing about a wedding at Airtree is you don’t have to leave the location! You and your guests can enjoy your special day long into the evening and you’re not restricted to a closing time (like most other venues!). Why not make it a wedding weekend rather than a wedding day! You can check out all the accommodation available here:
  1. Size Matters: Make sure the venue you choose can comfortably accommodate your guest list and the type of ceremony and reception you envision. Think about the flow and functionality of the space and make sure it fits your needs. Don’t forget to consider the size of the dance floor and the size of the tables you’ll need for dining.
We have an indoor room which looks magical when decorated for a wedding. The room comfortably suits 80 people cocktail style, and 60 for a reception type sit down style – the undercover space is also a great plan B back up room for bad weather if you decide to have an outdoor wedding on our grounds.
  1. Style: Choose a venue that aligns with your personal style and the overall feel you want for your big day. Whether you prefer a modern and minimalist look or a classic fairytale setting, make sure the venue matches the vibe you’re going for. Take into account the architecture, natural surroundings, and the existing decor of the venue.
In addition to these three key factors, decorating themes at the wedding venue can play a big role in creating the atmosphere you want for your special day. Here are some tips to help you decorate your wedding venue to perfection:
  • Get Inspired: Start by looking at wedding magazines, Pinterest boards, and Instagram hashtags to get inspiration for your wedding theme and colour palette.
  • Personalise: Choose decorations that reflect your personality and style as a couple. This could include special lighting, flower arrangements, or even photo displays.
  • Add Accents: Little touches can make a big impact. Consider adding accents such as candles, fairy lights, or lanterns to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
Talk to us about what we already have that might help you achieve the atmosphere you are looking for – we have loads! Don’t Overdo it: Remember that less is often more. Choose a few key elements and execute them well, rather than trying to incorporate too many decorations and overwhelming the space.   Our wedding venue, here at Airtree Resort, is a blank canvas waiting to be transformed into the perfect setting for your big day.

Remember, this is your special day, so choose a venue that makes your heart flutter and that you can picture yourself saying “I do” in! PS – I hope it’s us!
