What an Ideal Wedding Spot in the Bay Area Includes

There are some questions you should be asking when shopping for a wedding venue. Enjoying the overall ambiance of a venue or the grounds isn’t enough to help you make a perfect wedding spot. This blog post focuses on the reception, not the place you have the actual ceremony.

Wedding Spot for your Reception

The wedding spot you pick to hold your reception needs to be a perfect fit for what you want to do. It’s your wedding and of course, you want everything to be perfect! Here are some things you should ask about when you’re interviewing venues for your reception.

Number of People

The first thing that can be a deal breaker is the number of people the venue can handle. If you’re planning for a 500 guest reception, a venue that is not used to adequately handling that number should be passed on.

Packages

What is included in your wedding package? Does it include wait staff to serve a sit down dinner or only a buffet? Are hand-served appetizers included? How many hours are included?

Dancing

Is there a dance floor in the room you’ll be using?

Cancellation

If something comes up and you have to delay your wedding, are you able to cancel or reschedule without a penalty?

Parking

Is parking adequate for the number of guests you’re expecting?

Discounted Dates

Are there less expensive dates? Some venues offer lower rental fees for certain times of the week or year.

Picking your wedding venue might not be quite as stressful as picking the menu, caterer or the dress, but it is one more thing that you’ll need to do. And you should do this first, when you have a specific date in mind. Banquet halls have only so much space and their schedule fills up fast. So, here is a wedding spot that will have everything you need.

Wedding Venue

Exchanging vows is usually done in a church or a cute park setting. Then everyone will drive to the reception after the ceremony. Villa Ragusa is the perfect wedding venue for your reception. From small to large weddings, this is a beautiful space with open air balconies. It even has a grand staircase for you to ascend in your flowing wedding gown.

Aside from the beauty of this restored bank building that is loaded with marble and mahogany woodwork throughout, one of the reasons brides like this particular place is that the onsite catering is optional. You are free to bring in an outside caterer of your choice. There are very few wedding venues that will allow this.

This banquet hall is a 12,000 square foot building. The space for your wedding is configured to the size you need and most every room will include balcony access on the outside wall. With the high ceilings, every space has all the roominess you need for your decorations and guest tables. Our staff will guide you on the easiest ways to use the space for your decorating ideas.

Villa Ragusa

The Villa Ragusa building is downtown Campbell, CA, and overlooks the quaint, small downtown area. It is an ideal view. The staff is very helpful in guiding you through menus, appetizers and drink selections for your big day. Browse our wedding packages for reception ideas.
