When planning for a wedding, choosing the reception venue is a very important decision to make. There are many venues to choose from and the choice you make reflects your personality just like the other choices you make about your wedding dress, the wedding theme etc.
You may be a romantic and want to fly your whole wedding party to an exotic location. Or if that is not in your budget you could have a sunset wedding at a local wedding reception venue. You may be sentimental and want a traditional wedding with the ceremony in a chapel and the reception in your parents home because that’s where you grew up and have your favorite childhood memories there. Or are you very modern and technical and would want to book a ball room with state of the art technology that allows you to web broadcast your wedding.
Do you love music and want to have your favorite band playing at your reception or you’re not really concerned and will just go for the music provided by the wedding reception venue. Are you a constant worrier and would rather have the reception inside because you would be too worried that it would rain?
Your personality even plays a part in the timing of the wedding. Have you planned everything months or maybe even years in advance and can book a wedding reception venue of your choice or you decided on an impulse to get married and have only a few options to choose from?
In fact even the budget you allocate for your wedding reception venue reflects your personality and your priorities. Do you want to save on the reception and spend that saving on the honeymoon? Or do you want to splash out on the reception to have a party that everyone will remember? Do you have hundreds of friends and a long guest list or just a few close friends who you want to invite for an intimate reception.
Another aspect of your personality is how much control you want to have over the proceedings. Are you the sort of person who will not be satisfied until you have planned every bit of detail yourself and will see to it that things are executed your way. Or are you happy to delegate and just enjoy the wedding while someone else does the worrying for you? Will you hire an independent wedding planner or use the one provided with the wedding reception venue? Or not hire one at all, because you would rather control everything yourself? You have to decide it carefully.
Whatever choices are made in regard to the venue of the wedding reception, the wedding will always reflect the personalities of the bride and groom. In the end it is all about what makes them happy because it is the most special day of their lives. And with all the planning and efforts that go into having a successful event, they should not forget that it is their day to enjoy and have fun.
