June 24, 2019

At The Wool Exchange we deal with many couples seeking a venue for a wedding in Geelong, from large formal receptions to smaller, cocktail-style weddings. Which is why we’ve come with a list of 5 things we believe every couple should consider before deciding on a venue for their special day.

1. The venue’s capacity

In order for guests to have the best time possible at your wedding, it’s crucial they’re comfortable and have enough room to sir, mingle, dance and enjoy themselves. The Wool Exchange has three function rooms for you to choose from, each of which suit a different number of guests,  meaning whatever your capacity requirements are, we have an option to suit your needs.

2. Where the venue is located

This seems like an obvious one, but you wouldn’t believe how many people overlook the need for the wedding reception venue to be located within reasonable distance of the ceremony. Located in the heart of Geelong, The Wool Exchange is easy to get to for guests coming from the Surf Coast or from Melbourne.

3. The venue’s facilities

From ample seating space, to a versatile room layout, bathrooms, bars, multimedia, and sound systems, these are all vitally important when choosing the ideal venue for your wedding day.

If any of the aforementioned a lacking, you could end up with disgruntled guests and a feeling of dishevelment – which no one should experience on their wedding day. Luckily, The Wool Exchange has everything you could possible need for a successful wedding reception.

4. Food & drink packages

Let’s be honest, this is the best part of any wedding. The Wool Exchange has a large range of food and drink packages to choose from. Our talented chefs will work with you to tailor and unforgettable menu for you and your guests.

5. Atmosphere

It’s important that your wedding venue’s aesthetic and overall ambiance suits the style of your wedding, this is especially important if you’re going for a theme or have specific ideas about colours, layout and vibe.
