Most popular wedding reception sites often book far in advance. As soon as you set a date, you’ll want to start your search for a wedding reception site. If you already have a space in mind, call to schedule a meeting with the site manager to get the process started. Some locations will let you reserve space for a short time without placing a deposit.

Once you’ve created the guest list, you’ll be able to get a better sense of the amount of space you’ll need. Your guests, and any service providers you hire, should all fit comfortably within the wedding venue.
