Choosing your wedding venue and date is a huge step in the process of planning your wedding. When looking at venues, take note of what is included and consider the items that will still need to be rented. A few, commonly overlooked details are: dance floor, heaters (depending on season), chairs (for wedding and ceremony...are they what you want?) and lighting. Also, ask to see the china, flatware and linens. You may be perfectly happy with what your venue offers, but if not, you will want to include the cost of rentals in your budget for that venue.
