Figure out your guest list first. When it comes to picking out the perfect reception venue for your wedding, this may be one of the most important things to figure out. By determining the number of people who will be there, you’ll know how big or small a venue you’ll need.
Determine your budget. Even if you find the perfect reception venue, if it’s out of your price range, you’ll be out of luck. It’s best to save yourself from the heartache of saying goodbye to a picture perfect venue and the way to do that is by creating a budget. This way, you can be confident that you’ll be able to afford any of the options you look at.
Cost vs Value. Be sure to do your research on what you’ll actually be getting for the money you’re paying. Some venues cost a lot and that doesn’t even include the food or other important extras like tableware and day planner. However, the LA Hotel for example, offers the choice between a high-ceiling ballrooms that can fit up 1,000 people comfortable or you can choose one of the breakout rooms that connects to a beautiful outdoor patio where your party can easily transition to and from outdoor and indoor environments.
What area will you be in? Los Angeles is a big city, so take this into consideration when planning your special day. Think about where you ceremony will be and the distance between the ceremony and your venue as you don’t want to make your guests travel long distances. Additionally, even a relatively short distance can take a while to reach in LA due to the traffic.
