Choosing The Ideal Site For Your Reception

Reception sites are one of the largest decisions to make when putting together a wedding. There are a lot of options to choose from, but the hard part is narrowing things down based on your needs and budget. So, along with plenty of rental equipment options, here’s what you want to look for in your ideal reception site.

Ideal Site For Your Reception

Be sure to think about space concerns for your reception.


There’s no hard and fast rule when it comes to space, as it can vary quite a bit based on how many guests you have. Just remember that you want there to be enough space present not only for people, but also for all your rented tables and chairs, food setup, all while having space to dance. If you want an outdoor reception, make sure there’s enough room on the lawn for entertainment. If you’re not sure how to handle this, consider going to another reception with a similar guest count to yours. While considering your venue, make sure that there’s also equal space distribution for eating, dancing, and drinking. Some rooms have unique configurations you’ll need to work out.

Additional Concerns

There are added concerns that you want to think about when choosing your venue. For example, when thinking about receptions in public areas, you can always have strangers going by your party. So, your favorite public park may be a good location for a park, but not necessarily for the reception.

The tech side of things is also important. Make sure you have proper lighting in place to make the space look its best. If the reception is in the evening, artificial lighting will be needed. You need enough outlets for the entertaining crew as well.
