There are an infinite number of possibilities for your wedding reception site. Where you get married should represent your style; it should fit into the image you had envisioned yourself since the first day you started planning your wedding. As you look for your wedding reception venue, be sure it is fitting theme for your wedding. Does it fit the theme of your wedding? No one is expecting your to create a Broadway show production, but be sure the location accommodates the overall theme and fee of your wedding – whether it be a location, a flower. The location of you wedding reception needs to reflect the style and personality of the bride and groom. In addition, it needs to be an enjoyable, memorable experience for the wedding guests.
Selecting a reception site will depend on its availability, price, location to the wedding ceremony site and its capacity. Having your ceremony and reception in the same location can save you money and stress! One of the most important factors to consider is capacity. If you cannot seat all you guest, it doesn’t matter how much you want a location. Only visit sites that can accommodate the number of guest you plan to invite. You should also be flexible when determining your wedding date. Chances are the venue you like is already booked for your date, but you may be able to secure it for following week. If you really like the site, it may be worth the wait?
Find out how they charge for their services. Most hotels and restaurants charge per person where a flat fee is charged for each guest, including food, beverages, tables, chairs, linens, etc. Other venues such as clubhouses, parks charge you based on a period of time.
Most importantly you should feel comfortable at your own reception. Follow family traditions if those are important to you, but not because you feel pressured by family or guest expectations.
