Unique Southern California Wedding Venues
Finding a unique Southern California wedding venue is in one way, quite easy, there are so many choices – urban revivals, wineries, historic buildings, beach resorts, and specialty venues – but finding the perfect one for your wedding can be can be a lot to process!
The first step is to decide what are the “must-haves” for your big day. Do you want a gorgeous natural background? Easy access that’s mobility friendly for your guests? Maybe a cigar lounge, food truck or an ice-cream bar ? A humongous dance floor since you know your guests will be losing the jackets, shoes, and dancing the night away? Figure out what’s most important to the two of you, and the vibe you want, it will make your search so much easier!
Before hitting the road for a ton of venue visits, do some online investigating. There are two important things to keep in mind:
- Read the reviews. Check out Google, The Knot, WeddingWire, and Facebook for comments from couples who have experienced the venue already. Obviously, the more 5-star reviews the better, but don’t necessarily discount the venue for one low review. Read as many reviews as you can and pay attention to the details like professionalism, customer service, surprise fees.
Look at photos. This might seem obvious, but there’s several different ways to find pictures of the venues you’re thinking about. You can start on the site’s website, but Instagram and the hashtags associated with the venue will yield you many more photos to compare. Pinterest is another source for curated wedding photos, as well as viewing the Google business profile of the venues that you’re considering. The Google business info will also include reviews, directions and more photos uploaded from other wedding couples and their guests.
