Picking Reception Sites

¡Feliz Año Nuevo! Brides-to-be,

We at Latino Bride & Groom are looking forward to a great 2011 and wish all of you a wonderful year while getting ready for your much anticipated wedding. In this our first blog post of the year, we are going to give you some ideas on picking your reception site along with pictures from real venues!

You have options of where you want to have your wedding, for instance, an outdoor wedding in a place with a spectacular view, a casual wedding in a local banquet hall or a formal wedding in an elegant hotel. This is a great place to start. Yet, do you want a place where you have the flexibility of having your own caterer or perhaps a venue that takes care of everything? These are questions that you need to discuss with your fiancé, keeping your budget in mind.

Here we feature some of the best venues and they each have their own special elements. Puddingstone Resort in San Dimas, CA has an overwhelming view overlooking Puddingstone Lake. The Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA is not only filled with lots of history (built in 1936) but it also offers world-class cuisine and superb service. The Joule Hotel in Downtown Dallas, TX is an award-winning venue with the past and present mingled together for the contemporary bride. And The Palace Events in Dallas, TX is the perfect place to have your traditional wedding filled with all your closest family members.
