When the time has come to look for your wedding venue, you first must decide what kind of wedding you want to have.

Start with your wedding date. Is it in the Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall? What will the weather be like? These aspects are crucial to consider when deciding on what kind of wedding you want to have.

The season of when your wedding takes place can also help you choose the theme and colors of your wedding. Some brides have an idea of what colors and theme they want before they even decide on a date. In that case, you can always let those decisions help you in your decision of a wedding date.

A spring or summer wedding usually has light, bright colors, whereas a fall or winter wedding has darker color tones. However, these are not rules or requirements. The color and theme of your wedding is completely your decision!

A good way to decide on a theme for your wedding is to jot down a few words that describe the kind of wedding you’re envisioning. They can be adjectives, such as classy and fun, or nouns, like party and garden. Remember, your wedding should be a reflection of you and your fiance!

The final decision to decide what kind of wedding you should have involves the formality. The formal wedding is elegant and classy. The ceremony usually takes place in a church, the venue is a ballroom, and the decor is extravagant. The semi-formal wedding is also elegant and classy, with a touch of party. These weddings can take place in a ballroom, loft, museum, or outdoors. The decor of these weddings can vary depending on the venue. The casual wedding is intimate, and can be as formal or fun as you want. Casual weddings are usually smaller in size, and they are commonly held outdoors, at a home, or in a restaurant.
