We had a few criteria that we talked about.  Size was one of the most important because we need we would have a lot of guests.  We really wanted non traditional (no hotels or banquet halls) with outdoor space options.  We had location that we wanted to stay near.  Price definitely came up, and we tried to stay in a range.  And, we had already picked a date and optimal time, so they had to be available on that date.  Oh yes, and we keep kosher so we had to be allowed to bring in a kosher caterer. So here was our list of things we considered:

1. size
2. Non-traditional with outdoor space
3. Location
4. Price per person
5. Date and time
6. Catering

I hope this helps!

We are having a 200+ person wedding so price was important to us. But we also looked at a few different criteria and then ranked our top three on each category. We totaled the rankings up and the hall with the best ranking is what we picked.

Here were our criteria:

overall look/decor
anything extra thrown in?
will they let us bring in outside food?
early set up? (we have a lot of family helping)
seating (like how much space and style)
and finally… any deals for kids?
