Five Tips For Choosing A Great Wedding Reception Venue

Choosing a location for your wedding reception can be a bit tricky because you want to be sure that it is the perfect setting to celebrate your big day. With so much planning going on, it can sometimes be difficult to remember the intricate details that you need to remember when choosing a wedding reception venue. Use the guide that follows as a checklist when looking for a wedding reception venue.

Consider the Distance from the Ceremony Venue

The first thing you need to consider is how far away the reception venue is from the ceremony venue. Your guests will need to drive from one location to the other location and you want to be sure that they are close enough to one another that no one gets lost along the way.

Consider Space for the Caterer

When choosing a venue for your reception, you need to be sure that there is a designated location for your caterer to be able to use when setting up the food for the reception. Look for venues that have a kitchen on site for the caterer to use so that they can keep items cold in a refrigerator if needed.

Consider a Dance Floor

If you want people to dance at your wedding reception, you need to be sure that there is enough space for that to happen. Be sure that you chose a location that has ample space for tables, chairs, and dancing.

Consider the Time Allotted for Decorating

When booking a reception venue, find out how long the venue allows you to have for decorating the venue. You want to be sure that the venue you choose gives you ample time the day of your ceremony to set up the decorations because you will have so much going on that day you will not have time to set everything up an hour or two before everything starts.

Consider the Time Allotted for Clean Up

After your wedding and reception, you will be tired and more than likely just want to relax. Be sure that you take the time to find out how quickly the venue needs to be cleaned. Some venues will give you until the next morning to have the venue cleaned and some require it to be cleaned by midnight. You should be able to get your friends and family to help with the cleanup after the party, if you do need to have a speedy cleanup though.

Once you have considered all of the things listed above, the last thing you will need to worry about is the price to rent the venue. You want to be sure that the price is within your budget before signing any agreement.
