Choosing your wedding venue is one of the most important planning decisions you will make.
There are several factors to consider, like the number of guests you wish to invite, the type of wedding you want,
the time of year you plan to get married and your budget.
Any venue can make a memorable wedding experience, whether it is a hotel,
a private residence or even a historic venue.

Wherever you decide to hold your wedding reception, here are some points to consider:
How many guests? Have an idea of how many guests you will be inviting to your wedding & how many of them will attend. The venue should be able to handle an increase or decrease in the number of guests by around 10%.
Outdoors or indoors? Consider the weather first and foremost. Do not take risks with unpredictable weather, whether it’s cold, heat, wind, rain, or humidity. It’s always better to be safe than sorry. If you’re thinking of going outdoors, you may need to consider additional factors such as security, parking, valet service, cleaning, toilet facilities, and others.
Dinner: Seated, buffet, or live cooking stations? Dinners seated require less space but more staff and can be more expensive. If you don't want a seated dinner, split the buffet or live cooking stations according to the number of guests to avoid long lines.
Entertainment. Allow enough space for your wedding entertainment. Are you having a live band or DJ? How big do you want the dance floor to be?
Children. If children are attending the wedding, ask if there is a room or area that can be used to let them have time away from all the noise, a room with TV/DVDs is ideal.
Photos. Where will you take your memorable photos together as a newly married couple? Consider the location and ask your photographer about the light and other technical issues when it comes to taking your photos.
Transportation. Consider how your guests will arrive at your wedding and pick a venue that is easily accessible with good directions. Take care of transportation for your out-of-town guests.
