I think it’s a great idea. What I would advise against is bringing too many people to ANY decision making event. But, that being said, it doesn’t sound like too many peeps to me ๐Ÿ™‚

Personally, I think too many people can make it harder to focus on looking at venues and making decisions. Ideally you want to have people there who will give you constructive feedback, but can step back enough to let you make your own decision. Also, it’s a good idea to be prepared to put down a deposit if you really like a venue

If your parents are paying for your wedding, then by all means they should go.  Your Fiance should go as well, after all it’s his wedding too, and you want him to be excited about the upcoming event.  The only other person I would bring is a sister or Maid/Matron of Honor or my BFF.  Other than that, it turns into a circus and be confusing.  Take your cell phone and take photos and email to your Fiance since he won’t be there.  Do get his input – it’s important.  Good luck!

When I was my friend’s Maid/Matron of Honor she and I went and looked at her venue before anyone else! I felt honored to be included.

Only my Fiance and I have seen our venue, as it is a destination wedding. We went on a special trip just the two of us to find it, and it was private and meaningful ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy the experience!

Your parents and bridesmaid may have different ideas to share and see things from different perspectives which might be useful. I went with my mom, sister (technically MOH) and a really close friend who has helped plan many weddings in her day. If you know someone like that, that could be extremely helpful.

As long as your parents are ok with your Bridesmaid or Best Man going, I say go for it!! ๐Ÿ™‚
