Trying to find the perfect wedding reception venue can be a challenge. You need to find somewhere that you can both imagine getting married in. Don’t just choose a venue because you haven’t seen anywhere else you love yet. You need also to make sure it’s ideal for your guests and will fit your wedding theme. Here are some questions you need to ask at the wedding reception venue to know it’s right for you.   				Image Source  Will anybody else be able to come into the venue?  One thing you need to ask at the reception venue is whether anyone else outside of your wedding party will be able to get inside the venue. It’s so important to have privacy on your wedding day. If you feel uncomfortable with other hotel guests being around, you need to choose somewhere else to have the reception. Ask the venue if any other events are occurring at the same time. If you still want the venue, ask them to make sure no stray guests come into the room. You can sometimes pay a hire charge so that the venue will be exclusive to you and your guests that night.  How many people can you hold here?  Another thing you need to ask a reception venue to know it’s right for you is how many people can come along to the reception. Before you choose a venue, you need to have a good idea of how many people you want to come along to the wedding. You can then give them an estimate of numbers and see if they actually could hold that many people. If your number is at their max number, it might be wise to pick somewhere else. You don’t want the room to look too full, as no one will have room to move around, and will have to head outside. You need to allow a lot of space for people to be able to watch the first dance. Choose somewhere with adequate space to hold your wedding reception such as the Taglyan Ballroom.   					Image Credit  Are you free for a wedding on the chosen date?   You also need to ask the reception venue whether they are free on the chosen date when you are deciding if it’s right for you. You don’t want to fall in love with a venue and then find out they are already booked for your date. Some venues will only hold weddings on certain days of the week. If you have a specific date in mind to have your wedding, you need to say straight away. As this feature reveals, if you can be flexible with dates, you may be able to choose a day where you can have the venue at a lower rate. A lot of venues do discount for weddings on a Friday. You should also check if they have a specific time you need to leave the venue by in the evening. You don’t want to move your wedding somewhere else as they will stop the disco at 10 pm!  Do you have any accommodation?   Another question you need to ask a reception venue to know it’s right for you is whether or not they have any accommodation. They may have a bridal suite where you and your new husband can spend your wedding night. It can be frustrating if they don’t have bedrooms, and you have to leave the venue to find other accommodation. The same goes as well for your guests; they won’t be able to drink if they have to drive home later. Also, guests with younger kids will have to leave early too, so they can get them to bed at home. Therefore, check if they can set aside rooms for you and your guests. It will be nice in the morning to catch up with your guests for some breakfast before you head for your honeymoon.  Where will people be able to park?   An additional question you need to ask a reception venue to know it’s right for you is where will people be able to park. If you have a lot of guests coming in cars, they need somewhere to leave them when they attend the wedding. You don’t want them having to hunt for parking and getting lost on your big day. Therefore, check how many spaces they have for people to be able to eat.  How much will it cost?   Another question you need to ask a reception venue to know it’s right for you is how much will it cost for the venue. You need to have a good idea of how much you can afford before you go venue hunting. You don’t want to fall in love with somewhere that is way out of your budget. Therefore, ask them straight away to go through figures so you know whether it’s in your budget. You need to make sure you don’t get you and your fiance into debt before you even have started your married life!  What food will you be able to make for the wedding?  You need also to ask the reception venue what food they will be able to make for the wedding. They might have a few different set menus that you will have to choose from. Or they might be able to create a custom menu with your food choices. They may not be able to provide you with any food, and you will have to find outside caterers to come to the venue. Make sure you check this out so you can see what the extra cost would be for caterers.  Have you got any grounds outside?  Another question you need to ask a reception venue to know it’s right for you is whether they have any grounds outside. You will get some amazing photos if you can take them outside in the sun. If there isn’t space outside, you need to know where you can take pictures inside.    					Pixabay  You should also check how many weddings the venue hosts a year. You want to ensure they don’t hold that many so that your wedding is unique.
