Wedding Reception Venues

If you’re planning a wedding reception in Georgia, you have a wide range of venues to choose from, and to ensure you make the right choice, you may want to look at several different venues. We recommend getting in touch with the following list of possibilities. Keep reading for some helpful tips on choosing Atlanta, Augusta, and Savannah wedding reception venues.

Types of Wedding Reception Venues in Georgia

You can hold a wedding reception almost anywhere from a luxurious hotel to a backyard. As you hone in on the right option for your big day, you may want to consider the following types of venues:

  • Hotel wedding venues
  • Banquet halls
  • Country clubs
  • Farm or barn venues
  • Historic homes
  • Museums
  • Theaters
  • Restaurants
  • Vineyards or wineries
  • Lofts with industrial charm
  • Stadiums
  • Beaches
  • Gardens or backyards

Ultimately, when planning a wedding reception in Georgia, you need to choose a venue that matches the style of your wedding while also working with your budget.

Choosing a Venue for a Wedding Reception in Georgia

In addition to considering your personal taste and your budget, you also need to take into account a number of core factors. In particular, when planning a wedding reception, Atlanta couples need to think about the number of guests, amenities such as on-site caterers or bartenders, and location. If all of those elements line up, it’s time to see if the venue is available when you need it.

Essential Questions to Ask When Choosing Wedding Reception Venues in Georgia

If the venue has ample space for everyone on your guest list, you can start investigating the other elements of planning a reception. If the venue has a culinary team on staff, you should schedule a sit-down to talk about your dining options. Alternatively, you need to know if you can bring in your own catering crew and what kitchen essentials they can access while on site. Of course, you need to repeat these steps for the bar and plan accordingly.

Then, you need to plan things such as tables, chairs, and linens. Namely, does the site have them, or do you need to rent them from another company? In some cases, particularly if you are booking a reception in an outdoor venue, you may need to arrange restrooms or other essentials for your guests.

Touring Venues for a Wedding Reception in Georgia

When looking at venues for their wedding reception, Macon GA couples typically start online, but you should always arrange an in-person tour before booking a venue. In some cases, the pictures may oversell the venue, but in other cases, they may not represent the full beauty of he venue. Ideally, you need to see it for yourself.

Your venue has a large impact on the success of your wedding reception. If you’re looking for a venue, we invite you to come to the next Georgia Bridal Show. There, we have multiple vendors from around the state who can help you to plan your wedding and reception.

If you own or represent a wedding venue, we also urge you to contact us. We can help you book a booth in the next Georgia Bridal Show, or we can feature you on our website.
