Your wedding is one of the most important events in your life so you have to plan ahead. With proper coordination and planning, your wedding day will run smoothly without a hitch. Of course, your wedding planner will be with you all the way.
There are many types of wedding venues. A church wedding is officiated by a priest/pastor/minister and held in the church of the religious denomination of the bride and/or groom. The ceremony is more solemn as it is a covenant that the man and woman has united for better or for worse and that the contract ends at death of either. The bride walks down the church aisle with her entourage.
An outdoor wedding is officiated by a minister or judge or any person given authority by the state. The place is anywhere outdoor: in a garden, along a beach, a hill or any awesome setting surrounded by natural beauty. In most cases, the reception follows in the same venue. A hotel wedding is held in a big hotel and the reception follows in the same venue. The wedding can also be held in the bride’s home if it is big enough to accommodate her guests.
