There is one thing that everyone knows about planning a wedding: it can be very stressful. If you want to take all of the stress out of your special day, there are some things that you can do ahead of time to strategically take-hold of the planning, simplify it and really enjoy the day that you finally say, “I do.” Tradition dictates that the ceremony be held at a church or other religious venue, and that the reception take place at a premiere wedding venue. However, this can add to stress, by having to coordinate between two locations, and can also increase cost, due to decorations, reservation fees, transportation and much more. Streamline your wedding day by hosting the ceremony and Swansea wedding reception at the same MA wedding and banquet facility.
Tour the World-Famous Venus de Milo
Our banquet rooms in Swansea are some of the largest in the region. Our beautiful ballrooms are perfect for planning a wedding that can range from small guest lists to large gatherings with thousands of people in attendance. In fact, they are large enough that many of our couples decide to host both the ceremony and reception right here at our premiere wedding venue. Come take a tour of our ballrooms and see what we have to offer. From specialty lighting to award-winning cuisine, our event coordinators can help you plan the wedding of your dreams.
Known affectionately by the locals as, “The Venus,” our MA wedding and banquet facility is a very popular and sought-after location due to our attention to detail and reputation for providing all of the very best amenities and services to our clients. We also host parties for social occasions, corporate events, bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays, anniversaries, trade shows and much more. It is important to find a venue that is large enough to accommodate all of your guests and needs for your Swansea wedding reception and ceremony.
No Driving Between Events
One of the biggest stress factors in planning a wedding ceremony at one location and the reception at a different venue, is that there is lots of room for things to go wrong. Moving the flowers from the church back to the MA wedding and banquet facility, making sure that the bridal party and wedding couple make it from point A to point B, as well as ensuring that guests don’t get lost between venues, can be extremely stressful. You could provide a big map in the invitation or invite guests to follow the limo from the church to the banquet rooms in Swansea, but there will always be someone who thinks they know a shortcut that ends up the middle of nowhere.
Trying to squeeze in wedding photos between the ceremony and Swansea wedding reception can also be very difficult with two locations. When you plan your special day at a single premiere wedding venue that has all of the amenities, space and features that you want to include, it can really reduce the stress experienced by you, your wedding party, and your guests. Everyone can just settle in, relax and enjoy, without having to worry about getting back in their cars and finding another location. You also save on the limousine, reduce vendor costs from having flowers at two locations, and of course the cost for reserving two venues. You can still have your favorite officiant at the banquet rooms in Swansea even if you don’t have your ceremony at the church.
Decorating Tips for One-Location Weddings
Some couples like to use decorations to define a separate ceremony area of the MA wedding and banquet facility from the reception space. A decorative arch can be very instrumental in this part of the decorating process, helping to show guests where to be for the ceremony. Chairs can be placed in front of the arch and then on-site staff or guests can move the chairs to the tables for the reception portion of the event. Make sure to discuss your ideas for decorating and separating the two areas with the on-site event coordinators at the premiere wedding venue. They can help you find the best solutions for your wedding ideas.
