Congratulations to the Claytons! Lindsay Ellingson married her fiancé Sean Clayton this past Saturday in South Carolina. The pair got engaged last Thanksgiving after Clayton’s beautiful snow-proposal, adorning his bride-to-be with a custom oval diamond. The couple decided to have an intimate ceremony at The Inn at Palmetto Bluff exchanging “I dos” in front of less than 100 guests. The  Victoria’s Secret model gushed to about her man having “the biggest heart” and how she is ecstatic to be married to her best friend.

What are some ways to determine the location of your wedding?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Location, location, location! The venue of your wedding has a lot to say about you and your partner as a couple. Whether it’s inside, outside, in a garden, or in a church, each wedding is unique to the couple that is being wed. You want to select a place that is special to you as well as your relationship. When selecting the location of your special day to take place, here are three things you should consider.

1. Consider the size of your guest book: You don’t want to be cramming over 100 people into a small garden, or sharing an intimate wedding in a large church. When deciding where your wedding will take place you want the size of your venue to match the size of your attending guests. This way you can fit your guests comfortably, and you won’t have to worry about overcrowding or spacing out.

2. Consider the weather that time of year: If you are planning a summer wedding things can get a bit hairy if you want the ceremony to be outdoors. Select a flexible venue so if the skies launch into a torrential downpour, you’re prepared to relocate inside. Same thing for a fall or winter wedding. You don’t want your guests to freeze, so an indoor wedding may be more optimal. This day is all about what you want your wedding to be, so time of year and weather are definitely factors to consider.

3. Pick a place of significance: For some a wedding venue is just a place, but for most their wedding venue holds a significant memory for the couple. It can be a beautiful church they visited in their days of dating, a lovely landscape that lies behind a family home, or a fairytale-esque ballroom that they’ve found after several months of searching. No matter the place, after the wedding this place will be a haven for memories for the bride and groom, so make it count.
