Here’s some great advice from Albert Lee on researching that perfect location for your wedding reception.
Most venues such as restaurants, gardens, parks, clubhouses, etc. are usually fully booked because of the practice of making advanced reservations. This is frequently seen during popular wedding months such as December, June, and the likes. To avoid settling for what is left available, search for a location at least half a year away from the date of your marriage. Some people may even start looking and booking more than six months from their special day. Remember that marrying someone is supposed to happen only once, so holding the festivity in a place you and your partner do not like that much is a no-no.
When viewing the sites you are considering, find out not only about the different packages and rates they may have, but also the specific services that come with your chosen package. Ask also about the percentage of deposit you need to have that special spot reserved. Information about the style of centerpieces to be used, the color of the tablecloth, etc should also be asked.
The decorations are also important so you have to see to it that the place you have chosen will be all decked up satisfactorily. Ask the concerned person to show you a portfolio of previous events that have been held in that certain location. Inform the representative of whatever decoration style has captured your interest. If you have to make any customizations, ask if there is an extra charge to be paid.
You also have to view the dance floor and find out if it can hold all your guests. Dancing guests bumping into each other because of the limited space is a total disaster which you have to be careful to avoid. Ensure too that any band you hire will still have ample space to set up their musical equipment.
If you’re planning to reserve a hotel’s function room, ask the total amount of guests that may be allowed in each room as well as the price per head for you to be able to decide on which hall is the perfect choice. It is also best to contact other vendors e.g. caterers in the event that the hotel administrator is not able to provide everything you plan to have.
Having a venue booked does not mean the end of your worries. Plan thoroughly and make certain that every service or ‘materials’ you need are present. Remember that wedding receptions are also looked forward to aside from the actual saying of vows so there should be no room for even the slightest mistake.
