Looking at Wedding Reception Venues is a crucial part of your wedding planning, and there are a lot of things to consider.

Be sure to check out a few wedding reception venues, so you can really get a feel for each one. Every venue has something great to offer, and there are always things to look out for.

Connecting with wedding planners

The rapport between you and your wedding coordinators and staff is so important. Meet with a few wedding planners, photographers, stylists, caterers, musicians, and such. Have a chat, get a feel for their ideas and personalities. The more comfortable you feel with them, the closer you will be to finding the right people to make your wedding happen.

A venue that covers everything

The best wedding venues usually cover everything from A to Z. Having the ceremony and reception in the same place will help things run smoother. Ballara Receptions has several locations on-site – a chapel, private garden with gazebo, a lakeside area with jetty, plus a large ballroom for a formal seated dinner or casual cocktail-style reception and dancing. A huge advantage to having so many different locations at the one venue? There are several spots on the grounds that make leafy, romantic backdrops for photos.

Parking is important

It doesn’t matter how amazing the venue is – if there is not enough parking, it will make the situation somewhat complicated. Parking is especially important if the venue is a fair distance from the city or busy towns. However, if you have your heart set on the venue, you may have to consider transport for your guests. Ballara Receptions has ample parking for all your guests, so you need not worry here.
