Choosing a venue for your wedding reception is one of the most vital decision to make during wedding planning.
This is where your big day will happen and it will influence your décor, wedding vendors and outfit for your wedding. Your venue will also determine your wedding location and the amount of guests you can invite.
Some tips will guide you on choosing the perfect venue for your wedding reception.
1. Communicate With Your Partner
Before considering the venue to choose, you have to chat with your partner to know the kind of wedding you both plan on having.
Are you planning a summer wedding or a beach wedding or do you want have an adventurous experience by planning a destination wedding?
2. Consider Your Guest List
The number of wedding guests you plan on accommodating will determine the kind of venue to book. A venue should have a guest count minimum so try and consider that.
3. Choose Your Wedding Date
If you chosen a date your wedding, check the availability of the date. You can be able to get the venue at a lower rate if you choose an off-season month.
4. Consider Your Budget
Your budget will determine the type of venue to choose for your wedding reception. Determine how much you can afford for booking a venue. This will prevent you from falling in love with a place that might make you end up spending half of your wedding budget.
5. Consider Your Wedding Guests
If you plan on having a destination wedding or having a lot of out-of-town guests, then consider booking a venue that is close to the hotel.
This will save you the cost of taxi charges and transportation costs.
6. Decide on The Type of Wedding Ceremony
The type of ceremony you would want will determine the venue to boom for your wedding reception. Ideally, then wedding reception venue shouldn’t be far from that of the ceremony.
7. Talk To a Wedding Planner

Endeavour to speak to a planner before booking your dream venue!
