Planning Your Wedding Reception

By Denise Sanger

One of the hardest things about planning your wedding reception is the location.  There are many locations to choose from when planning your wedding reception, so it really depends on what type of reception you would like to hold.

Many cities have historical sites that you can choose from when planning your wedding reception.  These historical sites can also be great locations that go along with themed weddings.  Choosing historical sites can add an authentic setting to greatly enhance the celebration of your wedding.  You can look through a cities directory to help you find historical sites and areas.  Many sites and areas you can do research on which will help you with planning your wedding reception.

Of course you can go to a diner or host your reception at a hotel, but a new trend that is happening, is wedding receptions being hosted at museums.  If you are holding a large wedding reception, then maybe planning your wedding reception at a museum would fit your event.  Museums will not only add an elegant setting to your wedding reception, but museums can also hold a large number of guests.  You can contact your local museum and ask them about planning your wedding reception there.

If you are conducting a outdoor reception, mansion courtyards can be a great solution to host your wedding reception.  When planning your wedding reception outdoors, public parks are another great solution.  Whether you host your wedding reception at a mansion courtyard or public park, these types of locations have great scenery already included into them.  This can simplify planning your wedding reception, letting you focus on other parts of planning your wedding reception.  These outdoor locations also include a large open space which make arrangements easier to set up.

Wherever you decide to host your wedding reception, remember that it does not have to be in the same place as your wedding.  Just remember to pick a location that will not only be easy to find for your guests, but that will also have convenient parking for your guests.  When planning your wedding reception, make sure the site owners are willing to work with you on your planning and any accommodations that you may need to make your wedding reception a successful one.  Site owners can help with planning your wedding reception by including other parts of the site to be used in your wedding reception.  Planning your wedding reception up to a year in advance can really help, especially if you pick a popular location that is frequently booked.
