Venue Bookings

The beauty of the wedding lies in enjoying and celebrating every moment of it. Celebrations form one of those timeless and integral memories that give life new meaning. When booking a wedding venue, you must make sure to have an experienced and talented wedding planner to take care of the nitty grit-ties and every minor detail. Thus, to help make this occasion the happiest one, we, at Purplish Weddings offer venues that are tailor made to suit your fairy-tale celebration.

You can choose as per your preference and book from a wide range of wedding venues available across the country and even internationally. With the Purplish Weddings team by your side, you can find the most happening outdoor function halls to the finest of the banquet halls and get venue bookings done in a jiffy with our experienced team to guide you through every step of the way. We offer you the resources and the perfect assistance to manage such bookings, so that you can sit back and bask and enjoy this magical journey.

We cannot stress enough on the importance of finding the perfect wedding venue. Whether your wedding to-do list is scrawled on the back of a receipt, or in your head, or carefully and lovingly drawn out in a fresh notepad, this should be at the utmost top of that list ! If you are brand new to this planning spree, do remember, that until you book your , your wedding is simply a blank canvas. It could be a wild house party in the woods, a quiet elopement or anything in between - but once you settle on a wedding venue, that space dictates pretty much every other details about your big day, from the food to photography, even down to what the couple wears!

Choosing your wedding venue is always a very tricky task, but it is made much easier by first choosing the style of party you are after, and the kind of vibe you want to create for yourself and your wedding party. Believe us, it's the only part your wedding guests will remember on your silver and golden wedding anniversary!

To help you with the wedding venue search, we can help you choose the types of wedding venue options, and list the pros and cons of each. Once you have settled on the kind of wedding you would like to have, our team of experts will help you narrow things down to the tiniest possible detail !

If you want a big wedding venue, as most of our couples do, before you start shortlisting wedding venues, organise and have a sit-down chat with your other half, in which you both brainstorm ideas for your wedding day and settle on the kind of party you would like to throw. The most important details that you need to know is how many guests are going to attend the wedding.

Get a potential guest list to determine the ballpark figure of the number of guests before even thinking about shortlisting potential venues. If you are planning on inviting more than two hundred guests, for example, your venue search will be greatly dependent on that number. To speak roughly, for a wedding with more than a hundred and fifty guests, you will probably end up deciding to book a hotel, a marquee or an exclusive hire venue, and for weddings smaller than fifty, a private and quaint venue or restaurant will work out to be the best.

To get you started in this process, we have compiled a general questionnaire which covers all the basic aspects you we will look for before finalising a wedding venue for you.

Here’s the list:

  1. Does the venue have enough seating capacity for your entire guest list?
  2. Is the venue available on your wedding day?
  3. Is there an in-house coordinator the venue provides who will offer support throughout the duration of the wedding and reception?
