Reception Planning…Tips & Savvy Tricks

Written by Anne Driscoll for Paradise Springs

The location, food, drinks, decor and entertainment all play important roles in creating the perfect ambiance and will have to be arranged carefully. Choosing a location will determine many things about your wedding day, such as what the style and formality of the attire will be, and whether or not you will hire a separate food and beverage caterer.

Questions To Ask
• May I tour your site?
• May I see photographs or other receptions held here?
• What areas and rooms will we have access to? Are there any restrictions?
• Are there convenient and adequate restrooms? Are they handicap accessible?
• Are there adequate electrical outlets for the entertainer?
• Do you provide any equipment such as a sound system, AV or PA system?
• Are there any restrictions on decor, photography, videography, smoking or bar service?
• Will you provide valet, coat check, restroom, bar and door attendants?
• Is there ample parking for guests?
• Is there an onsite caterer? Are we required to use your caterer? Are offsite caterers allowed?
• Do you have any other events scheduled the day of my wedding? How many events do you allow to be scheduled per day?
• Is there a certain time when we must leave?
• How far in advance must I book your services?
• What is your cancellation policy?
• Is a deposit required? If so, when and how much?
