Considerations for wedding planning in Syracuse
Congratulations! Planning your wedding can be a dream of many brides to be. But with the planning, comes many decisions. Choosing the ideal wedding venue will be one of the most important (right up there with the dress). The Wedding Planners at our historic hotel have some helpful tips to consider:
Space for all of your guests – Make sure the event space is roomy enough to accommodate the number of people on your guest list. The space may look enormous when it’s empty, but wedding essentials — tables, chairs, a buffet, a bar, the band or DJ setup, the dance floor — can take up a lot of space. Not to mention your guests will need some elbow room. The best way to assess the size of a site? Ask to take a peek of the space when another wedding (with an equivalent guest list size) is all set up.
A storied venue – What will your guests see when they pull up to your wedding? Exceptional locations with a unique history are always a plus. Look to the decor or architectural details of your venue as well!
The Cuisine – Special dietary needs? Cultural dishes desired? Make sure that you are able to create a menu plan that will suit all of your tastes.
Overnight Accommodations – Having access to overnight accommodations for out of town guests as well as space for your bridal party to get into their special occasion finery is a must.
Professional Coordination – Does the venue offer Wedding Planning assistance? You may think you have all of the details ironed out but a true professional will handle all the details of your special day and facilitating all aspects of your wedding. A wedding planner will work closely with your vendors to ensure your day is stress free! From limousines and other transportation for you and your guests, a wedding coordinator can also offer referrals for linens, chairs, place settings, musicians, DJ’s, photographers, florists and more.
