Getting married usually only happens once in life and it is a magical event, which is why choosing a wedding chapel that you love and meets your needs is so incredibly important. Unfortunately there is no official how-to guide for planning a wedding, but there are some tips to help you figure out exactly what to look for in your prospective wedding chapel.
Figure Out What You Need and What You Want
How many guests do you need to accommodate for? How do you plan to decorate and what does the facility you plan to book look like? Most importantly, what is your budget? These are things you should consider before you go out searching for your wedding chapel. There’s no point in looking for massive lavish catholic cathedrals if your budget is only a few hundred dollars. Look for a wedding chapel that checks off all your boxes in terms of what you want, need, and can afford before succumbing to that contagious wedding fever.
Good or Bad Reputation
Look for a wedding chapel that seems to have a good reputation. A place that has zero social media pages, customer reviews, or even photos is probably not the best place to host your event. You want to find a wedding chapel that offers plenty of photos and videos, or even a blog, that show off all their features and amenities and tells you exactly what makes them so great. Find a place that will let you tour the grounds and facility. If they have nothing to hide, this should be no problem, but be wary of places that ask you to book without letting you see what you’re getting for your money.
Communication is Key
You need a wedding chapel that is upfront about what is expected of them and what is expected of you. Trying to book a wedding chapel can be hard when the people your reserving from never call you back. Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, so look for a wedding chapel venue that understands and respects your needs and desires. A good wedding chapel will take you through everything from decorations, seating plans, and officiants, to pricing and payment options to ensure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision.
The number one thing to look for in a wedding chapel is how it makes you feel. There’s no shame in shopping around to find the perfect one. It’s your big day after all, so make sure it’s one that you’ll look back on fondly and without regret.
