What to Look for in a Reception Location

By Weddingblog2011

You’re looking for that perfect reception location, but where do you begin? Keep the following things in mind when you begin your search for the best venue.

Before you book a reception venue, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with what to look for in a reception location. Even if you already have a good idea of the type of venue you’d like to celebrate your reception, there are certain things that you’ll need to know before you sign the reservation contract.

The following tips will not only help you know what to look for in a reception location, but they’ll also help you narrow down your choices so that you’re able to select the one that is just right for you.

Keep your wedding theme in mind— Whatever theme you decide on for your wedding day, be sure to choose a reception location that will complement it. Think about the atmosphere you want to create and pick a spot that blends nicely with the feel of your ceremony location. This will help keep the style of your wedding consistent throughout the occasion.

Are you looking for a package?— Many reception locations will offer wedding packages, which include everything from the decorations, cake, and catering, to the music, photography, and wedding planner. If you want an on-site coordinator and would like to make things easier by having all of the vendors and services you need under one roof, choose a spot that offers a package service.

Will you have privacy?— When you start visiting potential reception locations, don’t forget to ask how many other weddings will be taking place the same day as yours. For example, some resorts will have three or more weddings going on at the same time, in different ballrooms. If quiet, intimate space is important to you, choose a place that will accommodate your preferences.

What is the cancellation policy?—Ask what the location’s cancellation policy is and find out how much—if any—of the expense is refundable, should you decide to change your mind. Choose a venue that offers a reasonable policy.

These are some of the most common things to keep in mind when deciding what to look for in a wedding reception location.
