You’ve found the perfect man and ring… next on the wedding planning checklist…dress, photographer, and (YES) wedding and reception venues. Summer is one of the most popular times to get married and for many good reasons. The weather is warmer and the outdoor scenery and landscape is beautiful. The days are longer and traveling is easier. Here are some things to look for when choosing the perfect outdoor wedding reception venue.
Room Enough to Accommodate Your Guests
One of the first things you’ll want to consider when choosing wedding reception venues is SIZE and SPACE. Is there enough room to accommodate your guests? Will there be dancing? Will you be serving dinner or refreshments? The size of your wedding party should influence the venue you decide to use. You’ll want to choose a venue that will comfortably fit your guests and allow space to mingle.
A memorable wedding is magical and beautiful. Sure, there are a few perks to having a reception at the local church, but there is only so much one can do to cover basketball hoops in the cultural hall. A memorable wedding leaves an impression! Choose a venue that has romantic lighting and supplies the décor needed to leave your guests feeling enchanted. Summer is also one of the hottest times of year so you’ll want a venue that has a more than adequate cooling system both indoors and out (one that doesn’t distract from the ambiance of the reception).
How the table spread looks or tastes will most likely be a factor in determining your guests overall experience. People love food! Most people base their experience to a certain venue on how the food tasted or how available it was. Of course you’ll want to choose a venue that makes your dinner or refreshments look pretty, but more importantly you’ll want to make sure they taste good too.
Location and Parking
Location is extremely important. Choosing a venue next to a loud busy freeway wouldn’t be in your best interest, especially if it’s outdoors. Also consider the traveling time of your guests when choosing wedding reception venues in Utah. How long will your guests be willing to commute? Is the venue easy to find? Choose a venue that also allows enough parking for your guests. No one wants to park a mile down the road to get to your reception.
There’s a lot to think about when planning a wedding. Choosing wedding reception venues may seem daunting to some or as a minor detail to others. Picking the best reception venue will leave a lasting impression on your guests. Let the venue handle all the details. If you want less stress on your wedding day, choose a venue that will make you forget about all your pre wedding planning and allow you to enjoy your special day.
