How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Venue

A major consideration in your wedding plans is where to hold the ceremony and reception. This could be two separate locations, or it could be the same place. There are several wedding venues Atlanta, and it can be difficult to decide on the right one for you. It may help to answer the questions below to make sure you choose a venue that is in perfect synch with the wedding you have in mind.

What Type of Wedding Are You Having?

If you have your heart set on a traditional wedding — white lace bridal gown, matching tuxedos for the handsome groom and groomsmen, formal dinner reception — it’s probably best to have your reception indoors. It might prove to be too much of a stretch for you and your guests to get comfortable in a country-style outdoor reception clad in strictly formal attire. That said, however, it is possible to find a happy compromise that can successfully “marry” the two worlds, if that is what you and your intended desire.

As one of the most sought-after Atlanta wedding venuesThe Estate has both interior and exterior event spaces where you can have your wedding ceremony and reception. Our rooms are spacious and tastefully appointed with authentic period decor and modern amenities.

Who Is Coming to Your Wedding?

You want to give your guests ample space to sit, walk and move around easily. Make sure your venue can accommodate all your guests comfortably. You should also consider the age and mobility of your confirmed guests. Keep in mind that elderly or disabled guests may need special assistance in an outdoor reception area. If you have a number of young children attending, make sure they are properly supervised around stairs and railings.

Visit different event venues in Atlanta before you make your decision. Try to imagine how your guests will not only fit in the space but also move about safely and comfortably.

What Amenities Are Available?

Make sure the venue can accommodate the kind of wedding reception you have planned. For example, you will need more space (and probably better acoustics) if you’re having a band rather than just a DJ at your reception. If you have a number of guests from out of town, it would be nice to give them a room at or near the venue where they can freshen up or lie down after their trip.

As a premium private event space in Atlanta, the Estate is a luxurious and elegant setting that can accommodate any type of wedding reception and is excellent as a corporate event venue as well.
