Now that you have found the ‘Who,’ it’s time to answer the ‘Where.’ A great wedding is a part of every girl’s dream, and where it takes place is an essential element to it. There are many options available for couples; It is vital to sit down with your fiancé to discuss what you both want and other important factors to make sure your wedding venue is magical and practical.

  1. Location

Where your wedding reception will be in terms of distance and accessibility is an important consideration. If the wedding ceremony and reception are held at different locations, make sure that you and your guests can get from point A to point B comfortably. You should always make sure that you still have enough energy to take pictures and party when you arrive at the next venue.

  1. Capacity

Consider the number of people on your guest list before choosing a venue. Naturally, the more family and friends you have invited, the bigger the dining area and dance floor you need. Always ask for the maximum capacity of the venue and make sure that they match your guest list. 

  1. Facilities

Do they have good sound equipment? Can their system support all the electronic tools that your decorator or your band will be using? These are just some of the questions that you need to ask when choosing a venue.

Always ask for other facilities in the venue that is included in what you have paid for. These facilities may serve as an added entertainment for your guests, or your decorator can also use these facilities to enhance your wedding reception.

  1. Budget

One of the major factors you have to consider in choosing your wedding reception venue is your budget. Be aware of what you can, and you can’t afford. A place can be so magical yet too expensive that it compromises other elements of your wedding like your wardrobe, food or entertainment.

Keep your options open to alternatives before you settle on one venue. This will allow you to evaluate if you have other options that are a better value to your money.
