Here are some small reception ideas and the steps you need to take to book a reception mahal on a budget.
Take some time and sit down with your partner. Make some general decisions about what you want your married and reception to be like. Do you want a small or large reception? Add up the numbers. You’ll want to take into account your friends and family and any guests they will be bringing. Do you want children present? This will affect the kind of venue you book for your connubial. Children may not enjoy themselves at a very formal married connubial, but at an amusement park or ranch, children would be very welcome.
What theme, if any, do you want for your married? A theme married can brighten up an otherwise plain connubial mahal and it can create a seamless, festive married experience. Some married themes are renaissance, butterflies, fifties, candlelight, winter wonderland, and beach themes, to name a very few. Do you want your married connubial to be indoor or outdoor; formal, intimate, eclectic, traditional, or contemporary?
Finally, in considering your guests and your own needs, what special needs do you need to accommodate for? Do you need a separate kitchen to prepare food for those with allergies? Do you need a mahal that is easily accessible for those with handicaps? What religious or cultural traditions, if any, will you want to showcase? What kind of parking do you need? How many guests are coming from far away? You may want to choose a matrimonial connubial mahal that is close to major highways, airports, and hotels.
Now that you have this important information in front of you, choosing and booking a connubial auditorium should be simple.
This is a small but imperative step. Decide how much money you are willing to spend on a nuptial auditorium. The auditorium may or may not include catering, a matrimonial cake, chairs, linens, dishes, flatware, a DJ, and access to alcohol. Make sure to budget separately for these items and ask each reception auditorium candidate what they include in their matrimonial reception package.
3. Book it
The farther in advance you book the spousal auditorium, the more likely you are to get it and the cheaper it will be. Some people even book popular spaces years in advance. So get started as early as you can. If you only have a few months before the matrimonial, do not panic. There are plenty of alternative venues that don’t require intensely early booking. Try out a public park, a farm, a restaurant, a museum, the rooftop of your apartment building, or a friend’s backyard. Try booking your reception venue in the off-season (the matrimonial season is May through August, but the peak season will vary from venue to venue) for greater availability and less cost.
Based on your list of requirements, make a list of spousal location that could accommodate your needs. Find them through talking with friends and family who have married recently, through online searches, and even in the phone book. Call each place and ask about what is included in the reception package, how many people they can accommodate, if there is alcohol allowed or provided, what the total cost will be, what dates they are available, what their deposit and cancellation policies are, what parking is offered, how they deal with special needs, and any other questions you may have.
After your engagement one of the first things you do is set a date and choose your matrimonial nuptial mahal. This is a fun process, but is a lot of work. Nuptial location vary by size, price, decor and more. You’ll want to find a nuptial mahal that fits your style, guest size and budget. Below are the top five steps you need to take to choose the perfect nuptial mahal:
Think about your style – do you like the suburbs prefer the city? Do you like old world charm, or are you fine with a large suburban nuptial mahal that will fit all of your friends and family with ease? Determine the general location you’d like your matrimonial nuptial to be in and then determine what type of facility would suit you.
Now you want to take a close look at your guest list and how much money you have to spend. This will put certain places off of your list right away if they don’t hold enough people or are out of your budget. You can usually find capacity figures, and sometimes minimum spends, on the nuptial mahal’s website.
Make a short list of your top five matrimonial reception location and call them for an appointment. This is the fun part, because you can envision all of your spousal at each facility. However, it’s not all fun and games – make sure to take a list of questions with you to ask the reception coordinator. It also helps to take a digital camera so you can remember each place and the things you liked about it. After your visits, you should have firm answers on price, food, preferred vendors, cake cutting fees, down payments, capacity, operation times, etc.
Now you need to make a decision and call and reserve your date. Marital spousal location can book up quick, so if you fall in love with a place make sure to call them right away and book. You’ll usually need to pay a down payment so they’ll hold it for you.
Now that you have your marital spousal mahal, you’ll want to think about how to set it up and decorate it. Think about things like tables, table cloths, table centerpieces, marital favors for your guests, slide shows or movies, your DJ and more.
Every marital is different, but if you follow these steps you should be on your way to finding the marital reception mahal of your dreams. Remember, this is a special time in your life, so have fun with it and choose a marital reception hall you’ll remember for years to come.
