The wedding reception carries as much weight as the ceremony itself. It is being held to commemorate the couple’s marriage in an extravagant manner. It is also the moment when everyone delights in a good time after a long and arduous process of planning the wedding.
Essentially, this is the moment where the couple shares their first dance in front of their loved ones, especially in front of the Lord Almighty Himself. This is the moment when they are formally introduced to the audience as husband and wife.
However, the dilemma that most couples face right before their special day, is finding the perfect venue to accommodate all the guests they are having while also representing the theme they want to convey, not to mention the venue that is convenient for their guests in terms of distance.
