What Amenities Do I Need at My Wedding?

Happy couple dancing on their wedding dayPlanning a great wedding requires a lot of work, especially if your goal is to make your wedding stand out! One of the biggest components of planning your wedding is choosing the perfect venue. As you’re looking through your venue options, you’re going to want to make sure that your chosen space is suited to accommodate everything you imagine for your wedding day.


Here’s a list of some special amenities that you should consider for your big day:


When you’re looking for a wedding venue, make sure that there is an accessible area for your catering. Whether you choose to have your venue cater the event or you hire an outside caterer, your venue should have a designated area available for catering both indoor and outdoor events.

Having Space to Accommodate Your Dance Floor

The key to a memorable wedding reception is dancing! Instead of waiting until the end of the night to invite your guests on the dance floor, encourage them to start dancing the second you finish your first dance. Since everyone’s attention is already on the dance floor, your guests will likely be eager to join you.

When you’re choosing your venue, make sure you find a space that will accommodate your DJ or band too.


Whether it be a parking garage, valet, or street parking, your guests will need a safe place to park their cars during the reception. Always ask your wedding venue if they will be able to accommodate parking for your guests. It’s always best to overestimate the amount of space you’ll need for the event rather than underestimating and not having enough space.

Tents for Inclement Weather

If you’re planning on hosting your event outdoors, you want to make sure that you are protected from all different types of weather conditions.
