Important Wedding Reception Tips

Book Your Wedding Venue

You should book your venue as soon as possible. This is one of the first things you should do after deciding to get married. Make this a priority, as popular locations tend to book up quickly.  Here are some quick tips from DJ Rock My on choosing your wedding reception venue.

​Find the Perfect Spot for Your Wedding Reception

When booking your reception venue, speak to the wedding professionals on the venue’s staff. All facilities have staff who deal with their weddings.  For example, at the Hawthorns Golf and Country Club, Erin Shouse is a wonderful resource!  They know their business and can be an invaluable resource. They can help you pick the right size of hall and choice of menus for your wedding and offer many other ideas and tips. Ask if you can drop buy and see the venue when it is being set up for another wedding. It is difficult to totally imagine what an empty hall or room will look like when all the decorations and table settings are in place. You should consider things like size of dance floor, band and head table.

If you are having a large wedding you will most likely be having your wedding reception at a large facility like a banquet hall, hotel and golf clubs. If you are having a smaller wedding (less than 100 people) you will have more flexibility in venues. Garden weddings are beautiful and cost effective because you won’t have to spend a lot on decorations and flowers. When booking an alternative location for your wedding, be sure to check for adequate guest parking. You should also check on conveniences for your guests, such as stairs to climb for elderly guests, handicapped ramp access, and easy access to restrooms.

Location of Your Wedding Reception

It is a good idea to try and have the wedding reception venue close to your wedding ceremony venue, unless it is all at the same location. On a hectic wedding day, worrying about traffic and directions shouldn’t be an issue. Be sure to check with the venue staff for recommendations at the venue to take wedding photos. The venue staff may even be able to provide pictures and virtual tours, but do not make any decisions based on the properties you find online until you actually visit them.
