Event Lounge Wedding Tips.... Number 1


Finding a Wedding Reception Location

Once you find the perfect venue to get married at, the rest of those wedding day details (color, style, decor and so on) should quickly fall into place. What should you look for in your reception site (aside from that sense of rightness you know you'll have the moment you see "the one")? 

It sounds obvious but make sure the room is large enough to accommodate the number of people on your guest list. The space may look enormous when it's empty, but wedding essentials—tables, chairs, a buffet, a bar, the band or DJ setup, the dance floor, fun casino, photo booth—can take up a lot of space. The best way to assess the size of a site is to visit wedding fayres and open evenings when the rooms are "partly" laid out for you to view. 

What will your guests see when they walk into the room? Whether it's your local skyline, a stunning vista of rolling mountains and valley's or crashing waves against the stunning North Wales coastline, exceptional locations with a view are always a plus. If there's no view per se, look to a place's decor or architectural details: Artwork on the walls, period furniture in the corners or an amazing crystal chandelier as a room's centerpiece all give your reception site (and wedding pictures) that something extra. 

While you might not even want to think about rain putting a damper on your outdoor wedding, you can't look at venues without considering an alternative plan of action should Mother Nature have other ideas. Figure out if there is an indoor space that you can use should the weather turn bad... 

Don't Be Afraid to Ask!!! 
Your wedding vendors should be your go-to, most-trusted experts during the planning process. When working with them, you should feel free to really explore what it is you want—maybe it's serving a late-night snack instead of a first course or doing a bridal portrait session rather than an engagement session. The bottom line is that you should feel like you can have an honest conversation with them about what it is you want. Their job will be to tell you what you can and can't make work given your wedding budget.
