What makes a venue one of “the best wedding venues in Bozeman”?

This is a big question and can vary from person to person. However here are a few marks of a great venue.

  1. What makes a venue one of “the best wedding venues in Bozeman”?
  2. This is a big question and can vary from person to person. However here are a few marks of a great venue.
  3. It’s Beautiful: If you are picking a Montana wedding venue, it’s safe to say this isn’t something you need to be too worried about. The Big Sky state boasts rugged natural beauty year-round. With that being said though if you are spending money on a wedding venue. It needs to be beautiful. There’s no sense in getting a venue that you aren’t thrilled with. This will give you better photos and enhance your guests’ experience.
  4. A Great Venue Should Fit Your Guests: This one sounds like a no-brainer, but sometimes a venue you love is too small for the people you want to have. Seek a wedding venue that has flexible space, allowing for larger groups or if you are sold on a venue, use its space requirements to narrow down the guest list. One advantage to an outdoor venue is that you are not restricted by fire codes. If you are having a micro wedding, consider a nontraditional venue like an Air BnB or something cozier. This will help your wedding feel intimate and not cheap.
  5. Weather: Montana is not for the faint of heart. Don’t believe me? Montana holds the record for the greatest temperature change in one day! 103 degrees. You need a venue that can be flexible. This means either choose an indoor venue or if you are outside, choose one that has an indoor or covered option.
  6. Amenities: The last thing you would want to hear after landing on a venue is that you need to bring in tables and chairs from an outside vendor. The best wedding venues in Bozeman have all the amenities you need in-house. This ultimately will save you time and can save you money.
  7. Close to Lodging: One of the biggest wins is to have your ceremony, reception, and lodging close by. The best venues even have lodging on site!
  8. The Best Wedding Venue is Close to EVERYTHING: If you are planning on getting ready at home, find a venue nearby. Remember Murphy’s Law? Things will not go according to plan. I once photographed a wedding where they got ready 40 minutes from the venue. Next, they did a first look 20 minutes from the venue. Then after we finally got to the venue, the family showed up 30 minutes before the ceremony for pictures. As you can imagine the bride and groom were stressed out of their minds. All this stress could have been eliminated by keeping things close. Trust me the last thing you want to have to happen is to get pulled over for speeding as you are rushing to your ceremony.
  9. Curfew: Not every venue will let you party into the wee hours of the morning. For some of you, that’s totally fine. You don’t see your wedding going past 8 pm. Now for others, you are going to party hard all night! Make sure your venue can accommodate.
  10. Vendors: Ultimately, the best wedding venue will be decided by the vendors you choose. You could have the best venue in the world, but if you don’t have reliable vendors, it won’t matter. You need a team of wedding vendors you trust to make your wedding a success.
