@julieblessed:  You need to get an idea of how many guests to expect first.  You’ll need to narrow down reception sites based on capacity.  Then go price:  Do you want to do an all-inclusive place (tables, food, etc. included) or hire those vendors separately?  Give yourself time and take a look at a lot of different places.

I think the most important starting spot is your budget. That will guide all the rest of your decisions.

Start collecting pictures ( if you need an invitation to join Pinterest, PM me)  of looks you like ( remember to document the source of the pic) – dresses, colors, themes, flowers etc.

Eventually you will see a pattern emerging.

Do you want a formal affair? A plated or buffet dinner?

Or something more casual- a picnic, brunch or barbeque?

Check out venues in your area to to find something that works with your vision.

You will end up compromising on something- like the rest of us. Sometimes to get the venue we want, we have to cut numbers. Sometimes we compromise on the venue in order to invite everyone we want.

Be sure to come back and let us know how things are going and if there is anything we can do to help.
