In Playa del Carmen there are literally a thousand of places you could have your wedding at. With these in place there comes the daunting challenge of not knowing which venue to pick. Well, below are some tips to help you decide on the perfect place for your dream wedding.

  • Consider your budget. How much are you willing to spend on the wedding? It is pretty obvious that people have budget estimates for their wedding. Be sure to choose a venue depending on how much you have for the wedding. Different venues charge varying amounts. This minimizes chances of overspending.
  • What is the total number of guests coming to the wedding? Pretty simple. Go for bigger venues if your wedding is to have many guests. The general feel is to make your guests as comfortable as possible.
  • The type of services and amenities you require. This is determined by the type of people coming for the wedding. By type I mean are they old, young or both? Some amenities are not suitable for the old, for instance having the wedding in a place where guests need to go up some stairs.
  • The distance the guests can travel. Take into consideration what the guests say about how far they can travel for the wedding. If they are comfortable with your suggestions, then go ahead and have the wedding at that venue.
  • Consider your own personal tastes. In as much as considering the guest is a good idea, you shouldn’t, however, forget that at the end of the day it is your wedding. Go for a venue that you like the most. In Playa del Carmen you literally can’t miss a place which is exactly what you wanted it to be like.
  • What else can the guests do in their stay at Playa Del Carmen? You should not be thinking of having the wedding in a day and then going back in the evening. Most of the time people stay around for a week or so. Thus, when planning for a venue put in mind other related activities the guest might engage in, as well as how far they are located.

Flexibility of the venue. Is the place fixed or can you be able to customize everything to suit your needs? This is important if you would like to make a few adjustments here and there.

  • Is the venue really worth your money? Before booking consider the services offered. Are you getting what you expected? It is important to know what you will be receiving for your money.
  • Check on their pricing methods. Are they charging per head or is it per venue at large? This is necessary because different methods may add up to varying amounts of money spent on the event.
  • Consider their catering structure. You can enquire if you can outsource your own suppliers so that you can be sure only to pay for the venue. Also, check if your suppliers can utilize the venue’s facilities.
  • Will the reception be conducted in the same place as the ceremony itself?

Then what?

Once you are satisfied with the services of a certain venue, then the next thing is to simply book it. Follow the structure they provide for payment. You might be needed to pay some amount of deposit and the rest to be paid on the day for the wedding.
