  1. You must Start looking for the perfect venue as soon as you and your spouse decide on a date for your wedding. Select a pleasant location that suits your preferred style and theme, before planning your wedding reception. Make sure the wedding venue has the appropriate space and appearance for your desired formal seating, a buffet, a cocktail station, and so on.
  2. Once you select your dream venue, look around and recognize the spots that can be highlighted and the areas that can be downplayed to set up the perfect backdrop. A grand staircase, beautiful chandeliers, or perhaps a grove of trees would all give your wedding reception a beautiful finishing touch.
  3. Plan out the spacing of your venue. Make sure you have enough seating space. You can allocate around 10 to 15 square feet per person for a convenient and unconstrained experience. 
  4. Furthermore, make sure the dance floor is large enough by mapping out approximately four to five square feet per guest to dance and have fun all night long.
  5. Plan your seating arrangements attentively when planning your wedding reception. Place your guests who are very familiar with each other at the same table in order to host an active and lively wedding reception. 
  6. Host your wedding and reception in the same venue. This will save you and your guests the worry of transportation and also help you curb your expenses.

  1. Prepare a guideline by making a list of songs that should and should not be played during your wedding reception beforehand. Playing a group favorite that is easy to sing along and dance to can be a fun way to get your guests on their feet.
  2. A crowded dance floor indicates a fun and memorable occasion. To get your party started, hire a professional live band or a sensational DJ. It is recommended that you choose someone with the style and energy that complements the venue, theme, and ambiance of your wedding reception.
