Some of the other things to consider are - the facilities available at the venue i.e. kitchen, changing rooms, parking, etc, any permits required or restrictions with regards to music, alcohol and photography, whether the venue is easily accessible or not, is there an on-site wedding coordinator available, clean-up services, amongst others.
So, all those couples who are on a hunt for a wedding venue, should ensure that these basics are in place, before giving a green signal to a venue.
At the same time, if you are looking for an unusual, unique venue, be prepared to arrange all these facilities on your own as most offbeat venues, except for the interesting looking backdrop, do not provide much! Nevertheless, to give direction to your venue search, suggested here are some good wedding reception venue ideas...
Cheap Wedding Venues
Gardens, when the leaves and flowers are in full bloom i.e. during the summers and spring, lend an unbelievable visual appeal to the wedding location. You would not even need to spend much on wedding décor as the different colored flowers, shrubs and trees, will make up for it!
There are lots of gardens available on hire so you can consider these for an outdoor wedding, in case you live in a flat or your own house does not have a big enough garden.
Check with local authorities if there are such venues available in your state. If yes, you can have a look at them. If any one of these meets your requirements, you can book it for your wedding reception.
If the couple getting married met at a college for the first time and their romance blossomed there, a college venue will hold a sentimental value for them.
Unique Wedding Venues
Simply imagine you and your special someone getting married with a Picasso painting in the backdrop! Isn't it amazing? Usually, art galleries have large halls which come with attached open spaces and thus are ideal settings for a wedding reception. The paintings, sculptures and other art pieces will lend an all together different aura to your wedding.
Banquets are the most flexible of the wedding venues as with appropriate and creative décor, any kind of wedding theme can be recreated in them. Banquets are a closed venue, which means that for a winter wedding, they provide the perfect warm, cozy atmosphere.
A castle as a wedding venue provides everything, right from romance to drama to mystery, and thus, will make your wedding day a memorable one for you as well as the invitees!
Once the venue is decided, other things such as wedding theme, décor and menu can fall into place. So, if you want a perfect wedding, start with choosing the perfect venue first!
