Have a budget in mind

This will act as your main filter when it comes to choosing a wedding reception venue for your special day, it’s important to have a set budget in mind before looking for a venue to ensure your wedding budget doesn’t blow out unnecessarily.

Factor into this budget what may or may not be included in the wedding packages you’re interested in, are you just getting the venue for that price? Or does it include meals, drinks packages, table arrangements, etc?

Understand what kind of wedding you want

Are you after a traditional wedding reception with formal table layouts? Or something a little more casual? Also, what kind of aesthetic would you like on the day?

All of these things are important to have in mind when picking a venue. Providing a venue with examples of what you’re looking for will make sure both you and the venue are on the same page.
