Wedding reception venues guide

Deciding where to have your wedding is based on more than a few things – like religious affiliation, the guest list and the time of year, just to name a few. While it's been a tradition for couples to get married in a place of the bride's family's choosing, nowadays weddings can be held almost anywhere a couple desires.

Here are some special sites for the bride and groom's consideration. Please use the talkbacks to let us know if we are missing one.

These listings are organized first by theme, and then by maximum-allowable seating.
