One of the first things that you will need to think about after you get engaged is where you are going to get married. After all, once you find the right location, all of the other elements – décor, style, colours – will fall into place. There are certain things that you should look for in your wedding reception site, which are highlighted here.
The Space Available
While this may sound a bit obvious, you should ensure that you book a reception room that is large enough to accommodate everyone that is on your guest list. While it may look like a large space when you see it empty, by the time you get all your wedding essentials in the space – dance floor, DJ or band, bar, buffet, tables, chairs, etc. – the space can be completely gone, leaving no room for your guests. Even if you select a reception site that is outdoors, then you should ensure that there is enough room.
Areas for Partying, Drinking and Eating
There need to be plenty of places in the space where your guests will be able to dance, talk, drink and eat. When you are in the space, try to visualise where these activities are going to take place. If you cannot separate the area accordingly, then you may want to find someplace else to have your reception.
Is there Adequate Privacy?
You need to consider how much privacy you want for your reception. If you are hosting the reception in a park, beach or other public area, then you should expect there being strangers walking by. If you want a private event you are going to have to put out a bit more money to ensure this. Be sure to keep this in mind when you are booking your reception venue, since it is an essential factor that will play into where the event is actually hosted.
The lighting that is available can make – and break – the mood and fun of the space. If you are getting married during the day, be sure that there are plenty of windows to let in natural light. If you are getting married at night, outside, you will have to figure out if the venue offers lighting options, or if you have to create it yourself.
When you use the tips here you will be able to find the right wedding reception venue for your big day.
