Some suggestions if your favorite venue is no longer available
As promised, some suggestions of how to handle the situation that your preferred dream venue is not available for your event…
Work out your priorities.
Why was the venue top of your list, and what from this place do you need to find in its replacement and alternative?
Many couples secure a venue based if not totally, then mostly on their aesthetic reaction to the venue. How it feels compared to the look they envisage for their event. But the choice of a venue needs to satisfy the specific needs of your event. How many guests you have, internal and external spaces for the event, distance from accommodation and your budget among others. The first thing to do is to take a step back and outline what you technically need from your venue before making a short list. Italyweddings will then be able to help you select knowing your conditions.
