L is for Location of wedding reception

A marriage in India involves multiple important decisions a couple has to take along with the stress that comes with it.

Choosing the location of your wedding reception will be one of those important decisions. But wait, how can the location be an issue?

It’s because you will have to consider the following factors for choosing an apt place to hold your party.

1. Close to your family’s house:

The first choice will be when one partner chooses the location of the wedding reception as per where he/she stays. In this scenario, one family will have to travel all the way to the party ground while the other can take the least amount of time to reach the party.

2. Neutral venue:

Choosing a neutral venue helps both families keep their egos aside and have a great time. There is a high possibility that your travel time can increase but it’s okay as long as both families take almost the same time to reach the wedding.

3. Popular grounds:

There are many well-known grounds in your city that host wedding parties. A few couples or families insist on holding the wedding reception on such popular grounds to maintain that social image.

4. Cost-conscious/Combo:

Now this one is what most couples opt for. It’s either cost-conscious or a combination of the above options. Couples looking for a ground where the cost per plate, location, sound, etc fits in their budget.

Going a step further, they will also ensure that apart from the cost, families, and guests shouldn’t have to travel longer for their party.

What are my thoughts on the location of the wedding reception?

The location of the wedding party is an important decision. Almost 50% of your wedding budget is kept for the cost of the location.

Hence choosing an apt location that you both and everyone love should be the goal. Also, keep a note of how heavy will this decision be on your budget.

So I end this post asking you guys about your thoughts on choosing the location of the wedding reception?

  5. The location of the wedding reception is indeed very important. It needs to satisfy so many criteria and also be cost-effective too. You have made some really sensible and practical suggestions for making the optimal choice.

  6. Yes wedding reception is so important and I would love to have it in a destination and a beautiful location, maybe with some cultural or historical significance.

  7. Yes, the location of wedding is indeed a great decision. I wanted to have my wedding in an open space, but instead had it in a closed area, all because of budget. But at the end of the day, it was a beautiful experience and I was quite happy the way it turned out finally!

  8. A venue which suits both the sides sounds like a great idea. It’s a happy occasion hence causing inconvenience to one party seems like a bad idea. However, I also believe that sustainability and minimalism is slowly gaining popularity among the young generation. Spending unbelievable amounts in extravagant venues is not something I appreciate.
