What’s Up Wedding Venue Owners. This site is dedicated to helping you find everything you need to help your wedding industry business succeed. We have over 3300 active wedding venue owners and managers in our Facebook Group connecting, sharing and supporting one another. From start up to daily operations our community shares essential information and guidance on how to succeed as a wedding venue owner. Didi Russell is the director of the Wedding Venue Owners Community. She has over 15 years of event management experience and has toured over 650 wedding venues! The largest event I hosted had over 8000 invited guests, two event locations and over 200 volunteers. I understand the incredible excitement event management brings to your life. I also understand that being successful in the wedding and event industry requires an intense passion for excellent service, the ability to adhere to deadlines and an obsessive ability to think of and plan for every possible detail. I hope to ensure that wedding venue owners can connect with one another and share the information they have collected over the years so that the wedding venue owners can thrive and succeed together and without having to rely on ever increasing costs of wedding focused websites.
Wedding Venue Blog: Learn more About Wedding Venue Owners Community through our blog. Venue owners share their stories and give us a glimpse into their life as they navigate the wedding industry. They share how they started their venue, how they manage operations. These wonderful venue owners share tips and information on the best practices and polices they know to be successful for their wedding venue.

Engaged Couples: while the main focus of our website is wedding venue ownership we have hundreds of engaged couples that visit our site weekly so it makes sense that we provide some information to help you find reputable wedding venues in your area. The wedding venue map search tool is simple but effective. Just click on the map and search your area to see the venues listed. You can use our wedding venue gallery to view images of local venues as well as wedding venues around the world for inspiration. Members of our site have a heart icon next to their listing, this means we have verified that they are a licensed and insured wedding venue operating in compliance with their county guidelines. They provide couples with a contract prior to accepting any fees. These venues are legitimate operational businesses and that is very important for you to know as hundreds of amateur venues operate without proper permits or legal requirements of their county and local government. Do not risk your wedding investment in a venue that could shut down prior to your wedding.
Engaged Couples can use this Facebook Group to search venues. This group started with a focus on East Coast wedding venues but has grown nationwide. Just join the group and then post the venue style, location and budget range you prefer and other members will provide some recommendations.
