expert advice
"Once the arrangements for a planned event have been made, we ask our clients to sign a contract," notes David Lyngholm of The University of Akron Catering. "A contract protects both parties and validates the terms of the agreement. The document can help ensure that the function will be executed according to the client’s wishes."

"Ask about referrals, because the people at the hall can suggest recommendations for other services. If you can use the vendors that the hall works with most often, it can be easier on everybody because then they don't have to get messages to each other through the bride," suggests Judd Limbach of Rustic Hills Country Club.

"Many couples are interested in having available an attractive place to take pictures on their wedding day," says Jennie Anderson of Springlake Party Center. "Why travel all around town for photographic localities when your reception facility may have a beautiful indoor decor or outdoor gazebo that's available for such photographic memories."

The Sales Manager and Wedding Coordinator for the Sheraton Suites Akron/ Cuyahoga Falls notes that couples are really trying to connect with their guests (especially out-of-towners) and are planning a weekend full of activities and get-togethers. Friday night weddings, Saturday family events and Sunday brunches are becoming very popular.

Mary Henefeld, General Manager of the NEOUCOM Conference and Event Center suggests: "Having come from a health care food service background, I always suggest to my couples that they add a line on the bottom of their RSVP cards asking if the invitee has any special nutritional needs or food allergies. They are often surprised when at least one or two reply "yes" and need us to prepare something in a special way. Be sure to ask your caterer if this will be an issue and if they will assess an additional charge -- because they shouldn't."

Lorelei Olzinger of Silver Lake Country Club urges brides to consider the value of what they are getting from the facility instead of focusing on the price. "One place may seem to have a higher price per meal, but it may include all sorts of services that a lower-priced facility does not. For example, be sure to find out whether the price includes colored table linens, glass bar ware,china, table centerpieces, etc.,"

"Not all reception facilities are created the same," according to Ed George, owner of Tangier Restaurant. "Every hall offers its own distinctive character, amenities, and service which must be fully explored, in person, before any final decisions are made especially for such a grand event like your wedding."

Michelle Dearlove, Banquet Manager for Medina Country Club suggests a way to stay with your budget is to eliminate a full bar. "A wedding reception does not have to have liquor to make it memorable. Many receptions have a soft bar, consisting of beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages, instead of offering liquor."

To eliminate possible time constraints, the Catering Department at the DoubleTree Hotel Akron/Fairlawn recommends that, "Instead of having a typical receiving line at the reception hall, consider visiting each table immediately after dinner. This eliminates the long lines that can sometimes postpone the dinner hour. The bride and her groom may wish to also take a basket of favors along with them to personally pass out to each guest."

Christian Gorsuch of Firestone Country Club notes that, "When comparing reception facilities, watch out for additional hidden charges. Also, verify if there is a minimum number of guests required to reserve the room. Knowing these details will help compare halls on a level playing field."

"Your engagement party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, reception, and farewell brunch are all once in a lifetime occasions." adds the Director of Events at Glenmoor Country Club. “Take this opportunity to be as creative and sentimental as you want.”

"Shopping your venue can be an overwhelming experience. Begin by creating a must-have list for your reception, then use the process of elimination—if a venue feels wrong, move on. Once you’ve narrowed your selection, make sure you’re getting the biggest bang for your buck. Significant value lies in the best package, not necessarily the least expensive option. What is your most precious day worth?" –Janet Capocci, Wedding Specialist at The University Center, Kent State University at Stark

Mary McBride, Catering Manager for the Hilton Akron/Fairlawn advises, “Look as far in advance as you possibly can for your reception hall. Reserve your church first, and then your hall. If there's a particular service you want to use, book them next to be sure they have your date available.”
