After getting engaged, preparations for the wedding kick off. Choosing a venue is one of the important things you will need to get started with early. Ideally, you want to start looking for a venue before you decide on your wedding date. You should start looking for a venue as soon as you are engaged. In most cases, you will have to book a venue at least a year in advance.
If you want to do your reception in Las Vegas, you will have a wide range of venues to choose from. You can decide to go for either an outdoor or indoor venue. If you have planned to hold your wedding during the summer, an outdoor wedding would be ideal. For a unique ceremony, consider booking a lake wedding venue.
Regardless of the type of reception you would like, there is a Las Vegas wedding venue that would be suitable for you. Follow the tips below to find the ideal lake wedding venue:
i) Have a date for your wedding in mind
It is important to have a general idea of the date when you would like to have the wedding. For example, do you plan to hold the wedding over winter, spring, summer or fall? Having an idea of when the wedding would be held will make it easy for you to narrow down your choices. For instance, it would not make sense to hold an outdoors wedding during the winter.
ii) Location of the ceremony venue
It’s also important to know where the ceremony would take place. For example, if you want a gallery wedding, is there a church nearby? If the same venue would be used for both the ceremony and reception, will you be going for an outdoors or indoors option? For instance, if you are hosting the ceremony by the lake, you can move the reception indoors when the night sets in.
iii) How long will the reception go on?
The time of the reception should also be known beforehand. For example, will be getting married in the middle of the day or in the afternoon? Will your guests be fine with attending a night reception or would they prefer a daytime one? If you pay extra, some wedding receptions would keep the music playing all through the night. At other venues, there may be a time restriction on how long the ceremony can go to comply with local laws. You should talk with the management of the venue to know what to expect of the time frame of your ceremony.
Follow the three tips above to find the ideal lake wedding venue in Las Vegas for your big day.
