How to Find a Banquet Hall that Won't Empty Your Pockets

Oct 11, 2007
The wedding day is one of the most special days in your life. For many people, it is also one of the most expensive days! Most people think that more money is synonymous with better arrangements. However, this is not true. You can have excellent wedding arrangements that fit within a reasonable budget.

Finding a Great Banquet Hall for Your Wedding

One of the greatest money drains on your wedding budget is the fee associated with booking of the wedding banquet hall. Here are a few great tips which will help you get great service within a reasonable budget:

1. Book well in advance - Summer is the favorite season for people to wed. Hence, during this time, the prices will be soaring sky high. This will also mean that the last minute reservations might be in for disappointments which could ruin your wedding celebrations. Advance booking generally comes with some discount. If you wait until the last minute to book your banquet hall, you can expect to pay a premium.

2. Be innovative - Most people like to use banquet halls or hotel rooms. You might like to look for other, less expensive venues (another reason why you should start your search early - at least two to three months in advance) that could be transformed, with some strategic decorations, into the banquet hall of your dreams for a fraction of the cost. Some churches and community centers have large spaces that work well for wedding receptions at the fraction of the price you might pay at a hotel or specially designated banquet hall.

3. Be picky about the theme - It is often that modest banquet halls look drab and lifeless when they are not in use. Do not look for impressive looking banquet halls in terms of building unless you do have a carload of money to spend. Rather, you should be picky about the theme you choose for your wedding and the decorations to be used. You will be stunned to see what a difference the right theme decorations can do to the drabbest hall. Ensure that you have an exceptional theme and there is complete coordination with the decorations.

4. Try out open places - In summer it is perfectly acceptable to have your wedding hosted in a park or on the lawn of your favorite chapel. Open-air weddings are extremely charming, innovative and attractive. An outdoor wedding will also cost much less than one that is held in a banquet hall.

Whatever you choose, your success in having a great wedding within a reasonable budget will depend on how much you plan for it in advance.
