Tips and advice for finding the best Ventura and Santa Barbara
wedding reception locations:

When shopping for a wedding location, be sure to visit the wedding site and try to envision the type of wedding you desire (indoor, outdoor, garden, banquet hall, ballroom). Important factors to consider when finding ceremony or reception locations is the number of guests the site or location can accommodate. Your wedding can really be staged anywhere, and the wedding location you select will depend on the setting you desire. Once you've decided on the setting, you're ready to begin interviewing reception sites and locations. Properly planned, your wedding reception becomes one of the most joyous parties you and your groom will ever have.

The wedding reception is the first time you formally receive your relatives and friends as a married couple. Properly planned, it becomes one of the most joyous parties you and your groom will ever host.

Your wedding reception can be as simple and demure as cake and punch in the church parlor or encompass a glorious five-course dinner and dance.

Selecting the banquet or reception location really depends on how many people you are inviting. Your reception can be staged nearly anywhere. The church may have a suitable room, or you may want to rent a banquet hall or meeting room at a nearby hotel, restaurant or club. If you’re being married in a season and locale noted for good reliable weather, there may be a lovely garden or private estate available. Also check out some of the restored historical mansions; they make delightful fairytale backdrops for a wedding reception feast.

However you decide, know that the services of a professional banquet facility or caterer can greatly enhance and expedite the planning of your reception.

Once you’ve decided the setting you would prefer, the estimated number of guests and your budget, you’re ready to being interviewing reception sites and locations and well as caterers. Reserve your reception room well in advance and promptly pay any necessary deposit. If the guest list is small, consider a sit-down meal. Larger parties are better served buffet style.

Visit the reception site and map out how you’d like it set up. Plan to arrange the receiving line where guests enter the room. Decide also whether you’ll have a formal or semi-formal receiving line. Consider grouping furniture to stimulate conversation without obstructing traffic flow.

If you will be offering liquor to your reception guests, station the bar well away from the buffet or food service area so that there won’t be any congestion.

There should always be one table designated for the wedding party and one table for the parents Seating arrangements at the bride’s table are as follows: bridal couple in the center, maid of honor at the groom’s left, best man at the bride’s right. Seat the other attendants alternating men and women, as space provides.

At a sit down dinner reception, the order of service should be bride, groom, maid of honor, other attendants, parents, and guests. Once all have been served, the best man presents the traditional toast to the bridal couple.

Cake cutting comes after dinner. The bridal couple cut the first slice and share it. Then the caterer’s staff finishes serving while the newlyweds visit with guests.

The last reception ritual , before the bridal couple leave, is the bride’s tossing of her bouquet and the groom’s flinging of the garter.

Finally, you and your groom will leave the reception for your honeymoon, no doubt followed by rice raining down upon you and your car or limousine, bringing with it wishes for fertility, prosperity and happiness.
