What Else Should We Know Before Booking a Raleigh Wedding Venue?

Indoor vs. outdoor, all-inclusive vs. DIY—picking the perfect Raleigh wedding venue requires some careful consideration.

Don’t forget about these important factors before choosing your spot:

  • Weather – North Carolina’s weather is downright enviable. But the November-to-February temperatures might drop too low for an outdoor ceremony, or rise too high during midsummer.
  • Wedding Reception – In this Southern city, you’ve got plenty of space—and that means plenty of possibilities. You can always spice up your big day by spreading it across multiple venues, or look for one expansive location that has several unique spaces to host your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.
