Cupid’s Advice:

When planning a wedding, the location is definitely key. Not only do you want the place to be memorable, but you also want it to be mesmerizing and close to breathtaking. If you are looking for both of these qualities in a venue, a setting with sweeping views will definitely do the trick. Cupid has some pros to choosing a place with a stunning view:

1. Amazing outlook: No need to fret, the attention will still be on you during the ceremony. However in the meantime, give the guests something to admire while waiting for you to grace the aisle. They will be in complete awe at the surrounding scenery – whether that may be the beautiful nature or antique buildings.

2. Less time on decorations: Although you will have to add a special touch to the venue, a backdrop provides great detail to the place. With an outdoor wedding, the sweeping view is a part of the decoration. Focus on how to bring that out more so than the actual decorations surrounding the guests.
