How to Choose your Wedding Ceremony Venue

Your Katb El Ketab & Ekleel Guide

Not every couple chooses to throw their religious wedding ceremony on the same day as their wedding party. Some people decide to tie the knot right before their wedding party and at the same venue. But in case you are a couple that has decided to have separate ceremonies for both events, stick around for some crucial tips that could help you in choosing the best mosque or church for the religious wedding ceremony

Proximity:

The ideal venue would be one that your guests could get to easily and that is especially close to where you both live. In case each of you lives at opposite ends of the city, choose a place that falls in between. In case you decided to have both ceremonies on the same day but not at the same venue, choose venues that are close to each other to make it easier to travel from one place to another. 

Convenience:

Try to choose a place that is not only strategic for your guests but also is fairly well known and easy to locate. You don’t want your guests to get lost on their way to your wedding now, do you?

Theme:

Do you have a certain theme in mind? Do you prefer to have your ceremony take place in a more historically enriched place of worship for authenticity? After choosing the venue, try to match your attire with the theme of the ceremony

The budget:

Choose a place that suits your budget. Some venues are very popular and therefore, are pricier than other places. You don’t have to be super fancy in all your choices, and you don’t have to pick the most famous venue there is. 

Space:

Choose a venue with enough space to accommodate all of your guests. Don’t choose a tiny tin can just because you love its vibe or because it is convenient, travel-wise. If it’s too small, it totally defies the purpose of being able to invite all your acquaintances without worrying too much about the size of the guest list.

Booking the venue:

Most importantly, you must choose the right time for your wedding ceremony. Book the venue at least 4 months before the event! Start searching for places from up to 9 months before the actual occasion to make the booking process easier on yourself.

Don’t set a date that clashes with any holidays or feasts because most people take these days as an opportunity to go on vacation. That way you’ll be risking ending up with empty seats. Stay away from long holidays and from workdays. Moreover, try to book earlier on to get a good deal and to also find the most suitable spot without worrying too much and overwhelming yourselves with extra work and stress.
