It may be another headache added to your list of wedding day preparatory tasks, but we’ve narrowed it down for you. Presenting to you: the five most important tricks for finding a wedding reception venue.
Know your budget
It's vital that you and your fiancé know how much you are both willing to spend on the reception venue on your wedding day. Whether it be $5000 or $20,000, it is important that both you and your partner mutually agree on a set price. By establishing a budget, you will then be able to explore a range of reception venues within your budget frame.
It is also important to select a venue with a picturesque setting so you are able to take beautiful photographs. Lakeside, oceanside, parkside or perhaps even an opera house view, all of these photographic location ideas must be considered. Don't forget your wedding day photographs will be the ultimate memoir collection of your special day.
The type of food you will get at reception venues will vary depending on budget and location. For example, many ocean side venues will most likely offer seafood in comparison to a park side venue which may offer more conventional food. The reception food menu is one of the most important aspects of selecting a reception venue. You must also consider whether you’d prefer canapé style food, finger food or a set three course meal.
Theme and Style
Will your chosen reception venue cater to your theme and style? This is an important question that is mandatory to ask your reception venue. You may be interested in a rustic, formal or beach style wedding, so, it is crucial that you ensure your venue can include various styling props, music, food and an atmosphere, clearly representing your chosen theme and style. If they cannot, perhaps you may need to consider another venue.
Friendly and cooperative staff
By far, it is most relevant that your staff present themselves as friendly, helpful and cooperative individuals, which will greatly assist toward your preparation and planning for your wedding day. By ensuring this, it will be one less headache toward your wedding planning.
