The site (how to choose)

The venue where the wedding reception is to be held greatly determines how the event is going to turn out. A grand venue may definitely provide the right ambience for a spectacular evening, but might not fit into everyone’s budget. Each couple may pick a venue based upon their personal preference and needs. Though a cousin or friend’s wedding reception site might have been the best one for him or her, it might not be what you are looking for. Most dream sites cost a fortune, so unless you have saved every penny and dollar for the big day, you will have to compromise on the reception site. In case of a destination wedding, you can leave all of these responsibilities to your wedding planner. You could ask around or even check at the bridal store or online sources to gather information regarding the wedding party.


How to choose

Once you are more or less certain about the number of wedding guests you are expecting, you can select a reception site that can comfortably accommodate all of your guests. Then again there is the money aspect to everything you choose to do. Look around in your vicinity to see what’s the best deal you can get. Check with relatives to see if you can use a spare farmhouse or the likes. It is much simpler to find a reception site in the city itself, especially with so many rental reception sites being advertised


When selecting a reception site, it’s important that you find a venue that’s easy to find and doesn’t cause your guests to reach midway through you party.

Easy rentals

Though booking a reception site is an essential part of the wedding, it’s important to realize that there is a substantial booking amount you are required to pay. You should enquire about the payment options available and choose a venue wherein you could pay in easy part payments or make a down payment, followed by installments.

Package deals

Certain reception site owners may take on the responsibility of decorating the venue for you. This can be a great option as someone else will be totally responsible for venue decorations in exchange of a service fee.

This includes:

  • Arranging for the wedding band
  • Hiring a wedding singer
  • Decorating with wedding flowers
  • Preventing wedding crashers
  • Coordinating the wedding party
  • Constructing a platform for you to exchange your wedding vows
  • Arranging for a wedding shower.

In case you are a church member, you could even book the church hall for your reception. In such a situation, you are not required to make exorbitant payments but could choose to pay a certain amount to the church fund.

When deciding on a reception venue, do consult all your friends and family so as to be able to make a wise decision. It isn’t necessary that you hire a very expensive venue because basic decorations can transform even the simplest of venues. The local community center might also be a good option for a reasonably priced hall that you could rent for the wedding reception.
