Are you getting married in Temecula soon, and can’t decide on a venue? Temecula is such a beautiful little city with so many wonderful venues. And let me tell you, it can be such a hard decision on finding the right one that fits your needs. Here are 5 things to consider when picking a Temecula wedding venue.

Indoor or Outdoor?: Many of us have an idea on what we want our wedding look like right off the bat. Do you see yourself inside a gorgeous venue with intricate details, or do you see more of an outdoor space? Consider the time of day if you are choosing an outdoor ceremony. Plan your timeline right and those swoon worthy golden hour images of you and your future hubby will be breathtaking in the vines. Also, think about the date of your wedding. Being too hot or too cold may be uncomfortable for you and your guests. This is definitely something to consider when choosing an outdoor venue. Ask the venue coordinator what they have options to accommodate the heat.

Getting Ready Space: This depends a lot on your wedding party. Do you have a ton of bridesmaids/groomsmen? If so, it is important that you look into this before booking a venue. Does the venue have good light? Im sure this is something you probably havent even considered but trust me on this one. You want to choose a getting ready space that is bright and hopefully charming too. This will make all the difference in your photos of you and your bridesmaids.
