Important Considerations When Planning A Wedding Reception

Blog

Are you currently planning your upcoming wedding? Are you having trouble deciding exactly where to hold your reception after the ceremony? Your wedding day is obviously an important day in your life and you want everything to be as perfect as possible. If you choose the wrong venue, your guests may simply be uncomfortable or may not have fun at all. To help you find the right reception location for you and your future spouse, here are some things to consider:

Budget: It's no good picking out the perfect location only to find out later that you can't afford it. If you haven't already done so, set up a budget. Are you willing to compromise on the flowers or the dress in order to have a fancier reception location? While a seemingly-free location, such as a park, can seem to be a good idea at first, you'll also have to take into account the cost and logistics of getting food to the location. On the other hand, renting a banquet hall may give you free food or a significant discount on catering as a part of the rental package. 

Size: Once you know how much money you can spend on everything, you can start considering the number of guests. For a smaller budget, you'll want a smaller and more affordable venue with fewer guests. If you have a large budget, don't try to save money by skimping on the venue location. No banquet hall is going to allow you to pack 100 guests into a space meant for 50. In addition to being unsafe, your guests won't like to be so crowded. Look for a venue with sufficient space for all of your guests.

Comfort: Outdoor weddings and receptions are lovely to look at, but they may not be something that you actually want. Few people will discuss the insect pests that they may have had to deal with during their own weddings. Mosquitoes may plague the guests themselves, and flies may wind up getting into the food. Then you have to account for the weather and the possibility of rain or other precipitation on the appointed day. In contrast, a banquet hall or some other interior location may not be as traditionally picturesque, but they will be more comfortable. Your guests won't have to worry about getting their wedding finery damaged nor will they be plagued by insects. In addition, there will be sufficient restroom facilities for your guests to utilize.

Exploring The Wedding Planning Process

Hello, I am Ryan Vaughn. When I was growing up, I always dreamed of meeting the right girl and having a fairytale wedding. I thought out the tuxedo I would wear, dances we would complete and even the shape, size and flavor of the cake I wanted. Luckily, when I did meet the girl of my dreams, she had just as elaborate wedding desires. We set up a dream wedding with years of careful planning. Taking our time allowed us to get great deals on a venue, wedding supplies and clothing for our entire party. I would like to share the techniques we used to plan our wedding to help everyone achieve the event of their dreams. Thanks.
