Your Quick Guide to Choosing the Best Wedding Reception  

Choosing the right wedding reception can be difficult especially if you have a lot of options. The wedding venue also affects the attire you and the guest will wear as well as the meals to be served. To make it easier for you, here is a quick guide when choosing a wedding reception: 

Have a Talk with Your Planner 

It is better to have a talk with your wedding planner before making a final decision. This is to easily coordinate everything and avoid overlaps in the design and schedule. The planner will also help you to talk with the head of the venue.  

Your Guest List 

When choosing the venue, it is important to know your guest list. This is to confirm the number of guests, avoid overcrowding, and to know the number of meals to be served. 

Know Your Budget 

Aside from the number of guests, you also need to consider your budget. This is to avoid overspending and buying decorations or equipment you won’t need during the actual day of your event. 

The Areas 

You should also consider if the venue can accompany the eating, drinking, talking, and dancing activities. It is recommended to stand in the corner and envision the whole event. You should watch out for the odd contours or blockages that may cause a disturbance.  

The Theme and Lighting 

The lighting of the venue might make or break the mood. It is best to choose a venue with a lot of windows. If it will take place at night, make sure that it is not too dim. If it is outdoors, better set up candles. The overall theme can also affect lighting. So, be careful in choosing the colour palette. 

The Location 

You also need to think about the geographical location of the event. Consider if the guests can attend the event on time. Make sure that it can be searched on Google or other navigational tools. Think of the total driving time to reach the destination. If you have the budget, you can also rent rooms near the venue for your guests.  

The View 

Since it is your special day, it is best to consider the view. This is because it will be the backdrop for the photos. It can be a city skyline, a breathtaking view of the mountains, or the crashing waves of the ocean.  

The Meals Served   

When it comes to choosing the meals you want in your event. You should also consult if your guests are vegetarian or allergic to any kind of food. It is also recommended to have a taste test and be honest with your opinions so that your planner or wedding organizer can note it.
