    Steps for Finding the Perfect Wedding Venue

    Last updated 6 days ago

    Your wedding day is one of the most important events of your life, and it’s normal to feel a little bit stressed out when the big day arrives. Fortunately, with smart planning, you can take much of the stress out of your wedding day. In the months leading up to your wedding, you’ll have a lot of decisions to make including who you want to invite, whether you want your wedding to have a theme, and what venue you’ll choose for the big day. Picking the right wedding reception venue can alleviate some of your anxiety, so keep reading to learn how to find the perfect venue.

    Take Tours

    Whether you are planning on having a small, intimate wedding or a larger soiree, you’ll need a reception venue that can accommodate your guests. You can start your search by looking online for venues in your area, and by asking friends and family for recommendations based on weddings they’ve attended. Photos of the venue are helpful, but you’ll need to see the space in person to truly get a feel for what it’s like. Ask a few venues if you can visit them during a wedding, or at least schedule an appointment to be shown around. Being in the space will allow you to see whether you think it’s appropriate for your big day.

    Ask Questions

    Your wedding day is all about you, so it’s important to get the details out of the way for you to enjoy yourself once the occasion arrives. Speak with the venue’s representatives on the phone and in person, and don’t be afraid to ask plenty of questions. The venue should be able to tell you exactly what will happen on your wedding day, and if there are any restrictions that you need to know about. If you don’t feel like your questions are being answered completely or you feel ignored, it may be time to move on to your next option.

    Wedding Etiquette Tips for Guests

    Last updated 15 days ago

    Weddings are exciting events for everyone, not just the newly married couple. As a wedding guest, there are certain things you should avoid saying in your excitement to the bride and groom. Watch this video for wedding etiquette tips for guests.

    It’s easy to be swept up in the magic and romance of a wedding and say something that might accidentally be inappropriate. Avoid any mention of cost to the bride and groom, even if you mean it as a compliment. Don’t ask why certain friends or relatives aren’t present at the wedding, as this could be an uncomfortable subject. If you need help with something during the reception, find someone to ask besides the newlyweds. They’re usually so busy with greeting people that they won’t be able to give you the assistance you deserve.

    Whether you’re a wedding guest or about to get married yourself, there’s no better place to be than Martin’s Caterers. With stunning reception venues and delectable food, we are D.C.’s top choice when it comes to weddings. Call us at (410) 846-1543 or visit us online to learn more about our services.
