Important Wedding Reception Tips
When to Book Your Wedding Venue, Banquet Hall or Reception Location
This should be done as soon as possible. One of the first things you should do after deciding to get married is book your wedding hall or reception venue. Make this a priority as popular locations book up fast. See ourWedding Checklist for more details.
Finding the Perfect Spot for Your Wedding Reception
When booking your reception facility or banquet hall, speak to the wedding professionals at the venue. All hotels and banquet halls have someone on staff who deals with their weddings. 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 hall when it is being set up for another wedding. It is hard to gauge what an empty room will look like when all the decorations and table settings are in place. Consider things like size of dance floor, band and head table. Ask if they have a piano if you would like to have a piano player during cocktails.
Small and Intimate or Large Formal Affair?
If you are having a large wedding you will most likely be having your wedding reception at a large facility like a banquet hall. Smaller weddings have more flexibility. Some Toronto Art Galleries may rent out space for weddings and receptions. Botanical Gardens are beautiful and cost effective and you won’t have to spend a lot on decorations and flowers. When booking an alternative location for your wedding check to see if there is ample parking. Also check on conveniences for your guests, such as stairs to climb for elderly guests and easy access to restrooms.
Location of Your Wedding Reception or Banquet Hall
Try to have the wedding reception in a convenient location from your wedding venue. On a hectic wedding day, worrying about traffic and directions shouldn’t be an issue. Look for a place to take some wedding photos, such as a large fireplace or interesting staircase. Be sure to ask if you can have some time there with your photographer.
Important Things to Ask When Booking Your Wedding Reception
Will there be other events next to yours on the same day? Can you bring in outside decorations? Some banquet halls will only let you use their linens and place settings. Do you have access to a yard or patio area? Is there a place for the kids to run off steam? Can you bring your own DJ or live entertainment, or must you use the house disc jockey?
