Wedding Receptions

Wedding Receptions are a vital part of your marriage ceremony. There are so many choices available these days, and each couple usually opts for something a little different, depending on their budget and tastes.

Wedding receptions are not as formal as they once were, with more and more couples giving the expensive catered wedding receptions a miss and coming up with some innovative ideas on how to create their own.

One couple had their wedding reception underwater. Others have chosen mountaintops or theme receptions. (Outer space, Hawaiian, and renaissance are popular). Also, non-alcoholic wedding receptions have become a popular alternative to the traditional 'get plastered at the reception' days of old.

You can have a great wedding reception with a little planning and budgeting. The normal budget for a wedding reception should be about 30% of your wedding costs. Probably the most expensive cost of a wedding reception is the venue rental, decorations, and food service.

No matter where you choose to host your wedding reception, there are important details you need to look after when planning:

1. Weather: is the wedding reception inside or out?

2. Setup: Is this a non-traditional location? Will it require complicated arrangements to use/attend? Also consider distance - most guests do not want to drive for hours to attend your reception.

3. Cleanup, setup: Most 'traditional' wedding reception venues have cleanup in place. Make sure to inquire about this when selecting the venue. Otherwise, you may need to draw on family and friends to help with this aspect.

4. Theme: Does the reception venue fit the theme you have chosen for your wedding (assuming you have chosen a theme).

5. What do your family and friends think of your wedding reception venue? Take a small group of them to the venue, and ask them what they think.

At True Bride, we want to make this decision as easy as possible for you, so we've added a huge range of Wedding Reception centres to our Wedding Directory, so that you can review which businesses are available to meet your needs, and where they are.

Just go to the Reception Venues section of our Wedding Directory, enter your home postcode, choose the maximum distance from home you are prepared to travel to view their Wedding Reception facilities (from as close as your home suburb, through to all the reception venue choices available in your home state) and then click the Search Now button.

Once you get to your list of wedding reception venues, you can browse through them, noting down contact details, or if you prefer, select individual ones to add to your very own Personalised Supplier List.

You'll need to become a member of True Bride (which is free) to use the Personalised Supplier List facility, but it gives you access to a great range of resources and tools (including all of our wedding planning tools).
