- Check and see if there are any major local events such as conventions, conferences, festivals, or sporting events.
You’ll want to know of other major events happening (beyond other weddings) because they may cause rooms to get booked up faster than usual.

Larger resorts can look very impressive and they will offer an incredible range of amenities. But that also means that your room may not always be close to the location of your wedding events. Make sure the resort has ample golf carts to shuttle over guests who need a ride to the events.
