A wedding day is one of the most special days in a couple’s life together. There are millions, at least that’s what it feels like, of things to consider when planning a wedding, and do before the day arrives. One of the most important decisions to make is the wedding reception venue. What is the style and feel, will it be at the same place as the wedding or will people have to travel to another venue, is there plenty of parking, and the list goes on. Here are just a few basic, but important, things to consider when selecting your wedding reception venue.
Time of Day
What your venue looks like during the day may not be what it looks like in the evening, and vice versa. The time of day of the reception can make a difference in the ambiance of your venue. Don’t be afraid to check out the venue at the time your reception will be held. See what the venue is like during that time of day, and make sure it matches the ambiance you are envisioning.
Number of People
With wedding reception ideas, is your reception going to be hundreds of people or just 20 of your closest family and friends? Are children invited to the reception, or is it adults only? These are the questions you must ask in determining how large or small the venue should be. Once you know the approximate head count, this will help you to decide the best space for your reception.
An integrated part of the style and feel of the reception is the type of service you want. Do you want buffet style with a cash bar, or service with a wait staff and an open bar? What the venue actually can do and offer is important to know before making your decision. Also keep in mind all of these choices are attached to a price tag and that may also steer you in a certain direction as well.
