One of the first wedding decisions you will make is choosing the venue and if you are planning your wedding in the beautiful state of Alaska, you will find it is a perfect location with excellent venues for your wedding.  Your wedding is a very special occasion and the venue should be a place you and your guests will remember for many years to come.  You need to book the venue in advance to avoid disappointment; many people choose an indoor wedding venue because Alaska’s weather is mostly very cold.

You can consult with your Alaska wedding planner, as they might be in a position to offer advice on good venues which they might have held a function at before.  The consultant will be able to advise you on a good caterer, florist and help make travel arrangements for your guests, this will help in saving you a lot of time and stress focusing on enjoying your special day.
