Among the numerous things you need to think about when planning a wedding the actual wedding venue is probably the most important.  Depending on what type of wedding you are planning on having will also influence what type of venue is appropriate for your big day.  If you are planning a traditional wedding then you will need to look for a church in your area, preferably close to the reception hall so that your guests do not have to drive too far from one place to the next.

If you are looking for a non-traditional wedding then there are many more venues that you can use.  Some of the classic non-traditional wedding venues include the beach at sunset, at a park, or someone’s fancy backyard garden.  Planning these types of weddings can be a lot more enjoyable since they are so unique and uncommon.

However, when deciding on your wedding location you will want to make sure that you will be able to hire a company to come and set up the tents, chairs, and alter.  You will need ample space for your guests to sit during the ceremony; especially if there will be elderly guests in attendance, to keep them comfortable during your big day.  With so many other things to worry about on your wedding day you will need someone else to make sure that all of the chairs get set up for your guests.
