Almost every aspect of a wedding is optional: wearing a suit instead of a dress, giving up the flowers to give up the wedding cake, there’s one thing you can’t skip: a venue! After all, you must have a place where your friends and family can gather and celebrate! But finding the right place is not easy. But finding the right place is not easy. There are many options to choose from, whether you’re looking for a beautiful barn, an elegant ballroom, a nice restaurant or a peaceful beach. But how do you choose the best reception hall for your wedding?
The influence of the wedding theme on the reception hall?
It is imperative to choose a wedding theme before starting the search for a location. The bride and groom must discuss the themes, how best to express it through a decor, a menu and a play of colours. Will the theme require a formal or casual space, indoors or outdoors? Should it be a modern space or a historic site? The choice of theme will determine the mood of the day. After all, unless your guests bring a change of clothes, a beach-themed wedding will look rather stuffy if you go to the ground floor, the windowless reception room. On the other hand, if you’re in the mood for pigeon costumes and gala dresses, one formal space might be just right for you.
Choose a location that matches your vision and the number of guests
It may seem obvious, but look for places that match the aesthetics you have in mind, for example for a modern wedding, take a look at art galleries, well-designed catering spaces or warehouses. On the other hand, a wedding incorporating more natural elements will be perfect for outdoor spaces such as parks, backyards and ranches. This choice will largely depend on the number of guests, as a venue that is too small for your guest list and more guests respond than you can fit into the space, you could find yourself in a difficult situation. Couples often underestimate the number of people they will invite, this number of guests will have a significant impact on the wedding budget. The maximum capacity of a room is often not comfortable enough, so ask the venue how many people they can comfortably occupy, as well as what is allowed by the fire code.
The cost of the rental is taken into account when choosing the wedding hall
The cost of renting the space goes far beyond this, as establishments offering on-site catering services (such as hotels) will charge a price per plate. The decoration and floral designs will also increase costs. It is important to know in advance whether the cost of using the space will make your budget insufficient. Finally, if you are inviting a lot of out-of-town guests or planning a wedding at a destination location, look for a location that is close to or connected to a hotel.
