Wedding Venues ~ Real Estate Opportunities

Wedding Venues ~ Real Estate Opportunities

Chapel in Texas


Planning a wedding for yourself or your child? Wedding venues have been a growing trend for several years now. Pick up any bridal magazine and you will find new venues popping up all over the place.


As a real estate broker, helping a client find the perfect wedding venue or property is key. There are many creative opportunities out there whether you are looking for an urban feel, country feel or even something very unusual like an old theatre! The ideas are endless.


Here are a few tips when seeking the perfect wedding venue property:

  • Size of the building. Knowing how many guests can fit into a building is very important. Venues that are too small often don't get booked as often.
  • Parking needs to be adequate.
  • If inside the city limits, you will need to obtain the proper permitting for an event venue.
  • Noise ordinances will need to be addressed.
  • What is around the venue site? Brides and grooms don't want lots of noisy distractions like a train, busy roadway or sports complex.
  • Know your needs, size, desired location, budget, style.
  • Stay current with what the wedding trends are now. Plan for something that can stay timeless.
  • Be open minded when looking. What may appear to be out of the question could hold many possibilities.


My husband and I have a daughter getting married next year. Searching out the perfect venue for her has been a lesson indeed. Paying attention to the details that are desired has been important.


We ourselves have now invested in a tract of land that we plan to build a wedding venue on in the near future. We have found most of these venues are booked at least a year out! Incredible.


Call me today at CHEVAUX Group, PLLC to assist you in finding the perfect wedding venue or land location.

They really are. As one of the guys on Shark Tank says, "Weddings and Funeral are recession proof!"

Hi Paula - Interesting post. We have been working with an out-of-town buyer for most of the year, searching for the right wedding venue site, and it has been a great learning experience.

Now that is a pretty specific niche market.   I guess the Justice of the Peace or County Clerk's office is not a "venue!"

Ha Ha Gary L. Waters, Broker Owner, Waters Realty of Brevard, LLC , I am sure that is an option for some!

Very informative post shared! Searching the venue of your dreams will be a journey filled with beautiful courtyards, majestic chapels and gorgeous reception areas. With the very wide variety available, one will definitely find the venue according to their taste. It is of great importance that one is completely satisfied with the venue they choose to use on their wedding day. Before choosing a wedding venue there are some key features to look at like venue size, location, accommodation, parking space and catering. Nowadays, many venues provide in house catering like catering south Florida which offers delicious food to make your guest happy. As one thing that guest will surely remember is the food served on the wedding day.
