Finding an affordable Utah wedding venue can be a little like catching a glimpse of the Sasquatch or the Loch Ness monster.
Unlike those legendary pursuits, however, budget-conscious brides can find the ideal location to host their wedding. All it takes is a little planning and resourcefulness.
List Your Wedding Venue “Must Haves”
Begin your search for the ideal Utah wedding venue by making a list of the features you can’t compromise on.
Start your list by deciding on your maximum venue budget. Next, include your desired capacity (number of wedding guests) and whether you want an indoor or an outdoor wedding venue.
Most wedding reception centers offer a price break if you hold both the ceremony and the reception at their facility, so consider combining the events to save even more money.
If you’ll also be holding the reception at the same location, determine what type of catering services you want (sit-down dinner, buffet, passed appetizers or dessert only). Choosing a dessert-only reception can help significantly reduce your costs at most wedding venues.
Select a Date to Minimize Wedding Venue Pricing
The high season for Utah wedding venues is May through September. Choose a date in that range – especially if you plan to tie the knot on the weekend – and you’ll pay a premium for your venue. Plus, you’ll be competing with many other couples for available dates.
Choose a date between November and April and you may snag a reduced rate for your wedding reception venue. If you can plan your big day for a weekday (Monday through Thursday) and you’ll save even more at many venues.
Look for Value-Added Services
For an even more affordable event, look for a wedding venue that includes services you might otherwise have to pay for. For example, some facilities may include the services of a wedding consultant or coordinator as a part of the venue rental. Ask if sound equipment is available for your use. If so, recruit an outgoing friend to DJ for you. Some facilities even have centerpieces that you can use.
