Selecting a wedding venue in a city like Lahore for your big day can be confusing because the city is littered with banquet halls, many of which offer premium services and have highly aesthetic interiors & exteriors. Before you select any banquet, you need a plan. After all, it is one of the most important days in your life, and anything haphazard will give your celebrations an unpleasant touch. Selecting the best venue depends on several factors, such as your wedding dates, budget, location, required capacity, services, and service quality.
Your wedding should be memorable for you but also convenient and pleasant for your guests. A banquet hall, regardless of how beautiful and well decorated it is, located in a crowded place with restricted or difficult access, will fail to make your big day memorable for you and your guests. Look for a banquet hall which is easily accessible from various routes and is not situated in a busy location. The venue should have adequate parking to accommodate all the vehicles and be safe for your guests.
The location of the wedding venue will significantly influence the price, so be ready to spend some extra money if you want an easily accessible wedding venue. Wedding halls located in the posh areas of the city will cost you more but at the same time may offer you better services.
You’ll be surprised to learn how many people book wedding venues in advance and even more surprised to learn that these bookings are made months before the wedding dates. Lahore is a populous city experiencing consistent population growth, and despite so many wedding venues operating in the city, they are not enough to cater to everyone. You have to be careful about booking because you might only get your favourite venue if you are on time. You also have to consider the cost, which experiences a surge as soon as the wedding season begins in Lahore. This usually starts by the end of September and goes all the way to March. One benefit of choosing off-season dates is saving your venue cost, but the summer season of Lahore is famous for its heat and also load shedding.
Whether an indoor banquet or an outdoor marque, their services matter the most. Some venues offer many services, including stage and interior designing, speciality lighting, catering services, rooms for bridge and groom, DJ music systems, and many more. On the other hand, some may not offer comprehensive packages, and you’ll have to arrange additional services from third-party providers. Usually, comprehensive services may cost you more, but they are less of a headache than arranging different services from different vendors. One benefit of third-party providers is that you may be able to influence the price and reduce your wedding cost. Another benefit is that the service quality is much better when you hire specialists to do their job. These choices depend on the convenience level you want and the amount of money you are willing to spend.
If you are a Lahori, you know what we are talking about when we say that the wedding cuisine has to be excellent. Many wedding venues have great ambience but need more quality regarding catering services and cuisine. You need a venue which serves a wide variety of food, including traditional wedding cuisine, with incredible catering services. One way to ensure your guests enjoy the best food in the city is to ask around. Read online reviews, ask your friends, and remember the best wedding food you were served as a guest.
A wedding is a busy ceremony made up of several activities. Those managing a wedding have to be extremely careful because they have to deal with several aspects such as cleanliness and aesthetic value of the venue, quality of food, serving food on time, attending to all the guests, ensuring backup power in case of load shedding, ensuring the safety of everyone, and many more. An ill-managed event will not go unnoticed and will leave a mark on everyone’s memory. You need highly experienced people with a reputation for effective management. So don’t compromise on experience; find a venue famous for excellent service quality and effective event management.
While you can get the best wedding venue with incredible food and catering services with some research, you still have to answer the million-dollar question: How much will it cost you? The cost of your wedding venue and the services they offer must be analyzed. This can be done by visiting some of the best venues in the city, taking quotes for their services, and then comparing those quotes. Remember, while cost-saving measures may feel good, cost-saving at the expense of service quality will leave a bad taste in your mouth. You also have to ensure that the people you hire disclose the exact cost at the time of booking and that there are no hidden charges. It has been often observed that people tend to take advantage of these occasions and come up with a higher bill on your wedding day than they quoted before. To save yourself from this, you must ensure that all the vendors and you have already agreed on the price for their services.
