The first step after getting engaged is to start your wedding planning process.

This can be both exciting and daunting for couples. However, you don’t have to plan everything at once. Pick the three most important things to you on your wedding day and go from there. A survey conducted by The Knot stated that one of the top three most important decisions for couples was their venue. While there are tons of venues to choose from, consider the advantages of a combined ceremony and reception venue!

Saving money is important while wedding planning because let’s face it – weddings are expensive. Luckily, finding the perfect venue doesn’t have to break your budget. Having a combined ceremony and reception location can be a life saver! Transportation costs are nonexistent when guests can easily walk from the ceremony to the reception space. Additionally, when you party in one place you can save some extra money on décor, vendors, and the venue rental space.

The timeline for your wedding is narrowed down to the smallest detail. While you might be able to estimate the time it takes to travel from ceremony to reception, you cannot guarantee timing accuracy. When you choose a dual ceremony and reception venue, you can be assured that your day will flow smoothly. The event transitions will be effortless because there will not be any logistical factors. Additionally, having your wedding at the same location means you can re-use your décor! Your coordinator can quickly and easily move decorations from your ceremony to reception while your guests enjoy a cocktail.
