For couples geting married in a religious service, the choice of wedding reception venues will be somewhat limited. In fact, in any situation where the ceremony venue and reception venue will be different, the travelling time between the two will prove decisiveIn all cases, try to keep journey times to a maximum of one hour, although under thirty minutes is much more appropriate. With this in mind, once your ceremony venue is determined, simply work out a travelling radius from there and you're off and running.




Wedding Reception Venue Type

There are lots of different types of wedding reception venues from which couples are able to choose, with many wierd and wonderful options available.


Castles, exclusive hotels, country/manor houses, multinational hotel chains, barns, farms, sporting stadia, golf clubs, function rooms in clubs, pubs and restaurants are just some of the potential options.


Whilst for some the decision on type of venue will be quite easy (perhaps you met at a football match and want to celebrate your wedding at function suite at the club for example), for others it will be a little more complex.


Perhaps the best way to number down your options at this stage, is not to choose what you do wan't, rather what you don't want. For some, the formality of a country house will be too much, whilst for others the simplcity of a local pub just won't have the desired impact or impressiveness. Either way, you should find it far easier to exclude rather than include at this stage in the proceedings.


Whilst a small number of couples will look to choose somewhere that has a multi-purpose function room (local restaurant or out-of-town leisure centre example), the vast majority of couples will turn to a venue that is used to catering for weddings on a regular basis. With this in mind, if you fall into former category then you'll probably already have somewhere in mind. For all those wanting somewhere a little more traditional, be sure to check out our Wedding Directory. We only feature venues that hold a civil ceremony license, which means that only those venues who are truly focussed on weddings will be found.

So now you know you know how to shortlist, it's time to get on and start - check out the article entitled How to Make the Final Decision to help pinpoint the winner!
