Ruby's Blog | Choosing A Reception Site

Hello Brides and Grooms To Be!

I’m Ruby the Rochester Bride! As a newlywed of the Rochester area, I love sharing my knowledge of the wedding experience with newly engaged couples. This week I can’t wait to share with you some questions you should ask when choosing a reception site! 

1. Is my wedding date and time available?

2. What rooms are available to hold my reception?

3. How many people can the room hold?

4. Is there a minimum number of guests required?

5. Is there a time limit for the room? Overtime charges?

6. What other events are scheduled on the day of my wedding?

7. Is there adequate sound proofing?

8. Will I be guaranteed the room or be switched to another?

9.  Do you also facilitate ceremonies?

10. Can the site be used for an outdoor reception?

11. Is there a rental fee? What does it include or not include?

12. What wedding packages are available and what are the associated costs?

13. What are the extra charges (ie, tax, gratuity…)?
