If you have been mindful enough about who to invite , another thing you can be mindful about is the venue you choose. Be practical and sensible, do not just look at the superficial worth of the place. But does it have adequate seating area and proper ventilation? In case of unpredictable weather will the guests have somewhere to go inside if it is an outdoor location? Do you need a bigger venue or do you need a more intimate venue- these are the things you need to ponder upon whilst looking at your list of guests.
