Visit Venues

The first thing you want to do before heading out to tour different venues is sit down and talk over with your partner exactly what type of wedding you want. If you both know what each other wants, there won’t be any surprises when you tour the venues. There are many banquet halls in Glendale, CA so it can be overwhelming deciding which locations you want to tour. By narrowing down your ideas with your partner, you can make your list of venues to visit shorter.

Select a Wedding Date

You also need to choose your wedding date. This will help narrow down places to look at, especially if you are not flexible with your date. If you are flexible about the date, you will have a much broader choice of venues. Many banquet halls in Glendale will tell you that choosing a day or month that is considered off-season for weddings, you not only have more choices but the final cost may also be less expensive. For example, booking a Friday night wedding in March will likely be less than a Saturday afternoon wedding in June.

Type of Ceremony

It also helps if you know what type of ceremony you are going to have – a church wedding or a civil ceremony. The wedding venue should be no more than a 20- to 25-mile radius of where the ceremony is. Ideally, if you are having a civil ceremony, the venue will have a ceremony room.

Knowing your budget ahead of time also helps determine where you will have the wedding. Keep in mind that the alcohol and catering are the most expensive parts of the wedding reception and will use up a good portion of your budget.


Determining how much you can afford will help you avoid the heartache of falling in love with a place that’s well out of your price range. You don’t want to spend more than 50 percent of your total wedding budget on your venue. Glendale, CA has a wide variety of banquet halls to fit the needs of every budget.

Guest Count

You should have a general idea of how many guests you will be inviting to the wedding. You want to make sure the venues you do look at have big enough spaces to accommodate all of your guests. It would be disappointing to fall in love with a venue only to find out it isn’t big enough. As you are checking out venues, keep in mind the needs of those guests you are inviting. If any guests are coming from out of town, you will want to make sure there are hotels near the venue that you choose.

Before you spend hours, driving all over, take advantage of the convenience of the Internet and check out each venue’s website before you actually visit. Most sites will have information about the services they offer, catering menus, photos of the venue, and more.
