The first task you’ll need to handle is finding the absolute perfect venue. Now keep in mind, the “perfect venue” is a subjective term and depends on your wants, needs, desires and preferences.  Everyone has a different picture in their mind of the perfect wedding. Find out a rough estimate of the amount of guests you plan on having, and once you have that number you can start calling venues and getting estimates. Here’s a few popular ones you can check out:
