Use online databases and search engines to shop for facilities and pricing.
You can find them by entering key words such as “wedding dress”, “bridesmaid dresses”, “wedding site”, “party hall”, “reception facility” or “wedding space.” Many sites allow you to search by location and facility type to find the best space. Everything is negotiable. Don’t be afraid to ask a venue if they can beat the price their competitor gave you.
Wedding planners search for a wedding venue from 45 different facility types nationally — from arboretums, yacht and country clubs, museums, galleries and schools to boats, ships, theatres, banquet facilities, castles, estates, mansions, vineyards, sports stadiums, ski lodges and spas. Novel locations for weddings are a definite trend, as long as the venue can accommodate catering and entertainment.
