When you become engaged to that perfect someone the next thing that comes to mind immediately is your wedding day. All you envision is WHERE that special day will occur. Whether it will be indoor, outdoor, a rustic setting or classic elegant event with tuxedos, options are endless. But most important is you can’t have a wedding without the perfect venue. A business that will always stay busy is in the wedding industry, with more than 2.5 billion weddings each year and approximately 40% of the wedding budget goes toward venue location. While there is an opportunity to have a highly profitable business owning a wedding venue, some important factors need to be considered such as the following: Who is your ideal client, what is vision for your future venue, how is the business in area, and average profit margin for venues in the area.
Charlottesville has many beautiful wedding venues for sale that could host a wide array of events. Whether you want to own an expansive waterfront estate, rustic venue space, or sprawling winery property Virginia Estates has multiple wedding venues for sale. Below I have featured a couple of their venues for sale.
