How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Reception Location

Every bride will tell you the first thing they did after their engagement was to start searching for the perfect wedding reception location for their perfect day. When it comes to picking out the reception space for your special day, there are some key features you must keep it mind. Will the venue fit the guest list? Is there ample room for dancing? What about the food menu? Does the lighting match my theme? Does the location have indoor and outdoor facilities?

Village Catering’s, newly remodeled wedding hall in PA, Cottage Green, is currently booking customized wedding package deals to take the stress out of planning your wedding. When it comes to choosing a wedding reception space, our Cottage Green location has everything you are looking for and more.

For the ultimate wedding experience, choose a venue that can provide all of the following components.

Extensive Menu Options

Although it’s impossible to please everyone, it’s easier to when the wedding venue offers many different food choices. It’s important to factor in your preferences, as well as guest preferences. Make sure the venue can accommodate your guests with food restrictions, and their food packages are within your budget.

Reception Space Capacity

Just because a reception space can accommodate up to 300 guests, does not make it a fit for your guest list of 293 people. A good rule of thumb is to subtract 50 from the maximum capacity to comfortably fit everyone you’ve invited to your wedding.

Budget Friendly

In the end, it all comes down to, can I afford this venue?

Things to consider:

  • How much will it cost to host a wedding on this date, at this time?
  • Is there in-house catering, or do I have to hire my own?
  • Is the venue easily accessible for my guests?
  • What items are included in the venue’s wedding packages? (linens, wedding cake, music)
