We have said it before and here we are again saying it one more time; one task you will want to complete early in the wedding process is choosing your Venue!
If you are recently engaged, it is now time to set your focus on selecting your wedding venue, and it is important to do it early. Especially in some of the bigger markets (like Orlando, Florida), you’ll notice that there will be plenty of potential wedding venues and vendors to consider. While it’s certainly great to have more than a few options to choose from, it can also seem a little overwhelming in the early stages and the last thing you want is “stress” while you’re planning this special day!
Now, let's talk about why choosing your venue early is so crucial, especially here in Central Florida. The wedding scene is buzzing, and top-notch venues get booked fast. Locking in your venue early not only secures your ideal date but also sets the stage (literally!) for all the other pieces of your wedding puzzle. Ready to dive in? Keep reading for some pro tips on narrowing down your venue options!
Location, Location, Location!
Picking a conveniently located Wedding venue is key. Located in Historic Downtown Sanford in the Orlando area, Historic Venue 1902 offers both charm and convenience for you and your guests. Along with endless photo opportunities you cannot ask for a more diverse location!
Indoor vs. Outdoor

Budget and Size
Keeping your guest list and wedding budget in mind is crucial. Look for a Venue that offers clear pricing options. Ask about hidden fees or surcharges! At Historic Venue 1902 we offer flexible pricing and various spaces to suit your needs without compromising on quality. Keep in mind when looking at Venues with all inclusive packages; there could be fees. You want to ensure when choosing this option you are booking top notch Vendors who match your vibe and budget!
Availability and Amenities
Don't let your ideal venue get away! Check for availability as soon as possible. Venues book up months and even a year or more in advance, so if you need a specific date, make sure it is available. If you have out of town guests, check on nearby hotels and shuttle services; this can be a clear cut way to narrow down your search! What services are included with your Venue rental? This is key to knowing exactly what you are getting and also helps with knowing your overall costs. At Historic Venue 1902, we offer a range of amenities and our planning and coordinating team are here to ensure your experience and wedding day are stress free.
