Wedding Reception Venues: Selecting Your Dream Location

Wedding reception table setting

Selecting a wedding venue for your reception can be an overwhelming task. We’ve taken the legwork out of your search to help you find the perfect location for you and your groom.


1. Hotel Plazas & Ballrooms
Today’s hotels run the gamut with stunning interior design and panache, making it a breeze for couples to find one that suits their particular theme or personal style. Most luxury hotels will provide everything you need for the wedding reception (linens, stemware, dance floor and entertainment setup), as well as appoint coordinators to assist in organizing even the smallest detail.

Good to know:
Hotels can book months—even years—in advance, and depending on your wedding guest list, these exclusive services can get pricey. Typical reception costs include food and beverage fees per person, valet accommodations and various service fees—all separate from the site fee.

Some hotels also restrict the use of outside catering companies or work exclusively with a select list of vendors, limiting your choices for photographers, bands/DJs or other special event companies.

2. Private Homes
Using a private home for your
wedding venue certainly has a more intimate feel than receptions created in a larger space. Here, you can really let your personality shine— without decorating restrictions or limits on hiring particular vendors.

Good to know:
Having your
wedding venue at home may cut out some of the miscellaneous costs associated with renting a private space. However, celebrity wedding and event planner Sasha Souza recommends hiring a special team to bring in party supplies and help with setup.

Souza also informs that holding your wedding reception at a private property will require you to rent tables, chairs, silverware . . . everything, which will have a much higher rate of expense.

3. Banquet Halls
Banquet halls can accommodate as many or as few people as your reception guest list allows. Often the most sought-after banquet halls are ones with a romantic atmosphere, breathtaking views of city skylines, or those in close proximity to waterfronts and other scenic areas. Another selling point: banquet halls usually include setup of tables, chairs and other party supplies in the site fee.

Good to know:
Like hotel plazas, banquet halls can book far in advance, which means the wedding venue might not be available on the day of your reception.

Depending on the day of your wedding reception (weekends being the most popular), your minimum food and beverage fee can cost anywhere from $8,000 and up.

Other logistics such as guest parking and/or valet service may also incur costs not associated with the rental fee for the venue.

4. Outdoor Pavilions
An outdoor
wedding venue provides an effortlessly romantic setting. The lighting and landscape displays a natural ambiance that’s often recreated for indoor receptions. Plus, ...
