Wedding Planning Tips
Experience Counts A proven track records in all facets of the wedding business is vital to creating a successful wedding day. This is especially true and of the utmost importance where your reception venue is concerned. Be sure to choose an establishment that has been in the wedding business for at least 5 years, with managers and catering directors that have been with the company for at least 3 years.
Steer clear of new establishments that are just starting out in the wedding reception business. 59% of new food service establishments fail within 3 years, most within the first 18 months, so it is imperative that your reception venue be well established.
Simply put, the best venues are the busiest venues! Because of the very nature of the Hospitality Business, quite often the busiest venues offer the freshest food products and a finely tuned service staff who are in rhythm with their fellow workers. Venues that aren’t very busy often have difficulty retaining staff and purchasing food in sufficient quantity to ensure the very best for you and your guests on your big day.
