December 8, 2011 Wedding Receptions in Salt Lake City

One of the newest reception centers in Utah, Ivy House was filled with family and friends to celebrate this new couple’s union.  The children’s room was well used and guests felt so comfortable to linger longer to enjoy the spirit and atmosphere of one of the finest wedding venues in Salt Lake City.  The bride’s favorite refreshments – waffles – were the refreshment served with the most stunning fruit bouquets.  Ivy House was the most perfect of all wedding locations for this beautiful couple.  Many comments were made by the bride and family…  

“Our overall experience was fabulous, way better than a Church gym!”  

“Ivy House definitely exceeded our expectations.  This was the most affordable of the wedding places in Utah that we looked at.  It had many “extras” included in the base price.  These ended up being a big deal.”  

“Your staff is extremely professional and friendly.  Helpful when needed, but stepped out of the way enough to allow the family to do their thing.  We appreciated that.  Your staff was the best!”  

“The sparkler send off was perfect!”  “

We consider Ivy House as one of the upscale wedding venues Salt Lake has to offer.”

Ivy House Tips Covering Wedding Planning Basics

To have the wedding of your dreams, there are basic steps to follow.  Many people feel overwhelmed from all the details of planning a wedding.  They can have a much easier experience, when they are organized and utilize a checklist.  Using a checklist makes it easy to check off the different steps of the planning phase.

Using a wedding planner, either online or just a folder, will keep everything organized for easier planning.  The people you choose to help with the details, or vendors that you hire, will benefit from an online plan.  Begin by putting all the ideas you already have, and have been dreaming about for your wedding, into the folder or online planner.

All of your other decisions will revolve around the next item that you need to take care of, which is the budget that you have to set for your wedding.  On average, people spend approximately 50% of their wedding budget on their Utah wedding reception.  A popular way that a lot of people are reducing the cost of their wedding, while still having the wedding of their dreams, is to hold their wedding receptions in Salt Lake City Utah, at the same Salt Lake City Utah reception center as you have the SaltLakeCityweddingvenue booked.

Ivy House, Salt Lake City Utah wedding venues can provide you with an elegant wedding, while helping reduce your overall costs.  Your Salt Lake City wedding reception cost can be lower, because when you use the same SLCweddingvenue as you do for the receptioncentersinSaltLakeCityUtah, all the decorations and flowers will be the same, plus will not need to be transported.

The brides maids, best man, groomsmen, ring bearer, flower girl, ushers, and anyone else that will be part of the wedding will need to be considered next.  With the busy lives that we all lead, it will be good to get this out of the way in the beginning, so people that are chosen can plan to participate.  Another reason you will want to do this step now, is because many of these people can help with all the other planning details for the wedding venues in Salt Lake City plus the reception centers Salt Lake City.

Now your budget will determine the number of guests that you can invite.  Once all the costs are totaled for the wedding venues in Utah that you have want, your dress plus the other clothing for the wedding that you are providing, the pictures, music, flowers, and invitations, use what is left in the budget for the guests.  When you figure a per guest cost, you will know how many people can be on the guest list.

When the budget is not limited you can consider hiring a wedding planner.  There are savvy wedding planners that have the ability to gain discounts on certain Utah wedding locations.

Utah wedding venues are extremely busy, so book as soon as possible.  Many of the popular wedding venues Utah are booked way in advance, so you will probably have to set your wedding date among their unbooked dates.  The size of the guest list will also be a deciding factor on which Utah wedding reception center to choose.

Get the different vendors that supply everything for the wedding reserved at this point, so you will not be disappointed if they are unavailable.  This is where all those wonderful people that are going to be part of the wedding come in, delegate some of the different tasks, because many of these people are more than willing to help out.

Throw the engagement party now, because you have lots to celebrate about!  Remember to make sure the people you invite to the engagement party are on the SLC wedding reception guest list.  Get busy, you have a spectacular adventure ahead of you, and your closest friends will want to share in it.
