One of the first things you need to do when you begin planning your wedding is research wedding venues. Your options are virtually endless. Beyond all the amazing banquet halls, country clubs, and reception halls, there are other sites that can transform into wedding halls by night -- think libraries, photography lofts, and even large atriums. Not sure what you’re looking for? Start searching for wedding locations using our local reception resource guide (we’ve got listings of the very best wedding venues across the country). First, you need to decide your wedding budget. Maybe you can’t afford one of the more lavish hotel banquet halls, but don’t underestimate the potential of even the simplest reception halls! With the right decor and decorative lighting, wedding halls can be transformed into amazing wedding venues. Turn to our photo galleries of wedding reception decor ideas for inspiration and to see all the incredible ideas. Once you’ve looked through our local listings of wedding locations, start making site visits. As soon as you find the one you love, reserve your date because the best venues book up fast!
Well, they're not really secrets -- just really solid ideas.
