Location, Location, Location!!

Choosing a location for your reception is a big part of your wedding plans. 50% of your budget will go into your reception. Most of your wedding day will be spent in this location. Your choice should reflect the overall style of your wedding and it should work with your budget. These factors should be taken into consideration when choosing a location. Here are some tips to guide you in your choice.

Banquet Halls and Hotels:

The Swan Club, Roslyn Harbor New York
Pros: Banquet halls and hotels are a classic choice for weddings. They provide everything you need under one roof. Food, alcohol, linens, china and silverware!! It’s very convenient and you won’t have to worry about a thing.
There isn’t a lot of wiggle room for personalization. If the carpet is pink then you are stuck with pink carpet. Most venues do not allow changes to fixed objects. But not all is lost here; you can still make it your own by changing the linens and adding some lighting.
Who is this venue for: The couple that wants a traditional style wedding. Perfect for
couples with a large guest count because these venues can usually accommodate large parties.

Loft Spaces:
Studio 450, New York, NY
Pros: A loft space is a great venue for a wedding. You have an empty space to design any way you wish. Loft spaces are my favorite spaces to work with. You have total freedom to be creative.
Cons: The downside to loft spaces is you have to bring in everything. You must hire an off premise caterer and bartender. You also have rent linens, tables, chairs and silverware. Logistically, this can be a lot to do on the day of your wedding but with the right team of people it will go off without a hitch. You can also get a preferred vendors list to help you find everything you need.
Who is this venue for: The couple with a modern style and wants to make their wedding reflect their personal style.

Unconventional Venues:

Pros: If you want something different for your wedding, consider museums, vineyards, the zoo, a tent or even an aquarium. These sites add a unique element everyone wants for their wedding day.
Cons: Like loft spaces, you have to provide everything to accommodate your guest and this may include a portable kitchen and bathrooms.
Who is this venue for: The couple with an imagination and always dears to be different.
Happy Planning,
