Questions to Ask When Choosing a Location for your Ceremony or Reception
No two reception locations are exactly alike. They vary in size, formality, and the services provided. At some locations, you rent an empty room and you have to transform it into a beautiful site. Other facilities provide everything that you need for your reception. Most facilities fall somewhere in between.
Before visiting locations, first determine about how many guests you will invite to your wedding, whether you want everything indoors, everything outdoors, or a combination of the two, perhaps an indoor ceremony and an outdoor reception. The following questions will help you to compare reception centers and be certain that you are getting just what you need for your event.
-- What rooms are available? How big are they, and what is the maximum number of guests each room can accommodate? What is the configuration of the rooms? Generally, a large square or rectangular open room is more useable than an L-shaped one or a room with pillars throughout.
-- What is the fee to rent the room and how many hours are included?
-- What is the deposit? Is it refundable if you change your mind? What is the cancellation policy? Is there an additional fee for security or cleaning?
-- Is overtime use allowed, and if so, what is the charge?
-- What is included in the room rental, such as tables, chairs, linens, china, glassware, and flatware? Who does the set-up and clean-up, you or the facility?
-- Are any additional fees charged, such as a fee to cut the wedding cake, for a dance floor, or to use a sound system?
-- Are there certain days of the week or times of the day when the price is discounted? Many facilities charge less on Sunday, which is usually the slowest day of the week.
-- Can the site be used for both the ceremony and reception? If so, must both events occur in the same room or can two rooms or an outside area be used?
-- Will other events be occurring in nearby rooms? If so, will the sound carry from the other room?
-- Will another event be booked in the room or church before yours or after yours? If so, you may be limited on the amount of time that you have for your ceremony or reception.... Read More
