Perhaps the most important guideline you should be aware of when planning your wedding reception is the importance of booking your wedding reception venue at least six months in advance of the big day. Planning six months in advance is actually the very minimum that you should aim for. Many wedding planning experts recommend booking the venue for your wedding reception as far in advance as possible, sometimes even more than a year in advance.
There are actually several important reasons for booking your wedding reception venue this far in advance. First, it will help to ensure that you are able to choose from the maximum amount of locations possible. You may be surprised to find if you wait that there are only a few limited choices available. On the other hand, if you book your reception venue as far in advance of the date as you can, you will have far more choices from which to choose. This will help to ensure you are able to select a venue that coordinates well with your overall theme, is convenient to you and your guests and also fits within your budget. When planning in advance you will find there are many different options for your reception, including a banquet hall, restaurants, ballrooms at hotels, private gardens, etc.
By booking your wedding reception venue well in advance, you will also be able to take advantage of several other important benefits. For example, you will have more time to work upon the design and d¨¦cor for your reception, which is something that certainly should not be rushed. This will also allow ample time for other vendors, such as your florist and wedding coordinator to work with the selected reception venue.
This will also give you plenty of time to decide upon the wedding reception format you prefer. One of the more common formats for a wedding reception is as follows: Guest arrive, introduction of wedding party, time for guests to eat and mingle, toast to the couple, cutting of the cake, first dance, tossing of the bouquet, tossing of the garter and general dancing. Of course, if you prefer, you can also include the traditional father/daughter dance and mother/son dance right after the first dance. If you like, you can also include special dances in the format as well. For couples who are religious, a wedding reception format might also include a blessing. This is typically done right after the introduction of the bride and groom.
Planning a wedding reception can involve a lot of work, but understanding the steps involved and planning your reception and booking the venue well in advance can help to ensure that your big day goes off without a hitch!
