Tips and suggestions on how to organize your wedding reception and what criteria to follow when choosing the perfect wedding location in Puglia.
At the end of the wedding ceremony, the bride, groom and guests will go to the location for the wedding reception in Puglia: convivial moment of great importance that determines a real party, where you eat, dance and stay together in joy to celebrate this day so important.
For simple or sumptuous that you choose to do the wedding, this can not be said to be concluded without the offer of food, the protagonist of the reception: the ritual of sharing a meal has ancient roots and is a mandatory custom in many religious ceremonies, such as Christian or Jewish, in which the intake of food is a symbol of communion and brotherhood. Even in the times of the ancient Romans, the wedding reception had an indispensable symbolic value: in fact, the wedding rite was not considered legal until the newlyweds broke and ate bread with their guests.
Factors to consider when choosing a location in Puglia
The wedding reception and its style should first of all reflect the tone and atmosphere that you want to give to the wedding, so in harmony with the ceremony, with the floral decorations, with the groom’s dress and the bride.
With regard to the choice of location instead, in addition to personal taste, we must take into account some important factors.
Established the budget, in fact, you must consider:
Distance from the place of the ceremony
The advice is not to stray too far from the place where the wedding ceremony takes place, as a journey to reach the wedding reception longer than 30-40 minutes could tire and discourage many of the guests.
Number of guests
This will first impact the budget available per person, and then the size of the venue you choose.
Type of guests
The wedding reception is a party and as such it must be organized keeping in mind that all guests should be comfortable. If there will be a predominance of young people, our advice is to provide musical entertainment: the place chosen, therefore, should be large with a dance floor maybe, but without forgetting an oasis of tranquility for grandparents. If, on the other hand, it is the elderly who will predominate, you should prefer a quieter atmosphere and a place that is easily accessible: exclude, for example, dancing parties on a beach or rooms connected by long stairways. It should also be considered the number of children who will be present at the reception: if many, it will be important to have rooms easy to reach (for easy movement of baby carriages and strollers) and perhaps an area dedicated to them with possibly a baby sitter.
Place where the guests come from
If many guests come from other cities, it will be important to choose a place for the wedding party close to accommodations, hotels or bed & breakfast, where they can stay after the reception: if the wedding is in the afternoon, in fact, is to be considered that the guests will entertain for the night.
The date of the wedding is important in deciding whether to have an outdoor reception or not. In fact, an outdoor banquet will be organized only in the months in which you are sure to have good weather, taking into account, however, that if you are in the middle of summer will need to provide a cover for the hottest hours.
Whether the wedding reception is a lunch or dinner obviously depends on the time of the ceremony. Often, however, it happens that weddings take place throughout the day, from morning to evening, so it is necessary to provide a location that can accommodate the wedding throughout this time.
