If you have already decided to get married in your own backyard then there exists no scope for the selection of a wedding venue else it becomes really important to put some serious thoughts over the issue of choosing a venue. But it is far more important to plan as to how many guests you want to invite to the special evening with you prior to plan about the wedding reception venue. Choosing your parent’s backyard as the wedding reception venue also demands the prior planning for the number of guests you want to invite. Remember that too many people in a too small space will turn everything into trash, spoiling the total flavor of enjoyment. It is fine, if your backyard is wide and spacious enough to accommodate the number of people you want to invite. Else it will be wise to choose another spot as a wedding reception venue.
Wedding reception venue and celebration theme
Choose your wedding reception venues according to the theme of celebration of your wedding. This is, however, very important to come up with a unique wedding celebration that can have a long lasting effect not only on your mind but on the mind of your guests as well. While doing so, you have to pay special attention on the decoration of the venues and the central theme of the decoration. Remember your choice of the wedding reception venues must be such that it should dictate all who would attend your reception party.
Things to look for
There was a time when the wedding reception venues used to be held at the brides place and the place used to be decorated according to the theme of the wedding celebration. But now the trend has changed. The hotels and the stately banquette halls have come up with a wide range of facilities to be rented for the purpose of celebration of wedding reception. There are, however, certain questions to be asked before forwarding an advance, in order to make sure if the selection is right. Ask if there is adequate facilities of lavatory and whether there exist such facilities for the older persons with less mobility. See if there exist facilities of high chairs for the kids. Also ask if there is desired car parking facilities, safety and security.
While choosing the venues the most significant thing that has to be kept in the forefront of the mind is safety, as it is expected that a group of little kids will be there in the party with their parents. Hence, you can never afford to choose a venue that may expose the little children to dangers.
