Tips to help you choose your reception venue in Hamilton



Hamilton is an excellent wedding location, as you have plenty of amazing reception venue choices to choose from. There are options that fit any wedding budget, size, theme and weather in this quaint location. All you have to do is zero-in on the one that is just perfect for you.

Hamilton Reception

Before you start your search for a reception venue, there are certain factors that you should consider in order to choose a place that is just right for your special day. Let us find out what they are.

Time of year when you are getting married

The best venues in Hamilton are usually fully booked months in advance. Once you know your wedding date, hasten with your venue decision so you get your booking done on time. Many venues like the Best Western St.Jacob's Country Inn slash their rates and offer better packages in winter. So, if you are open to getting married during the off-season, which is usually in January and February, you may get a better rate. Another great option is Wedding at Carmen's.

Location of venue

It will be convenient for you and your wedding guests if the ceremony and reception venues are nearby. You would also have to consider how to get there and leave the venue after the function. If there are many out-of-town guests attending your wedding, a venue near the hotel they stay at will be ideal. Otherwise, they will have to make travel arrangements to get to the location and back to the hotel as well.

Formality of the event

Your venue should reflect the type of wedding you have planned. While some venues are suitable for formal parties, others are better for casual affairs. For a scenic wedding, consider a vineyard or location by the river. The Waterlot Restaurant and Inn is a perfect choice for such an event. For a formal, elegant wedding consider the Walper Hotel or Hauser Hall. The Stratford Country Club on the other hand, is a versatile choice that caters to both traditional weddings as well as trendy ones. If you want a dramatic setting for your wedding, how about considering the Museum that offers both ceremony and reception venues in the same space?

Hauser Hall

Available packages

While some reception venues have all-inclusive packages that make your wedding planning a breeze, others allow you to customize your wedding decor to suit your unique taste. Then there are venues like Lake Lyndsay that offer you both options, where you can either go with their package deal or just hire the venue and find the vendors who would perfectly implement your wedding ideas.

Number of guests

The venue you choose should be able to accommodate all the guests attending your wedding. Some venues like the Hessenland Country Inn, have more than one reception hall, and you can choose the one that is most suitable for your needs. Apart from checking out the facilities like disabled access and parking, also check out their food and drink service. Depending on whether their meals are sit-down style or buffet, and whether they have an open bar, you can determine whether it fits your taste and budget.

Frequently Asked Questions - Hamilton Wedding Dress Shopping

1. What is the minimum cost at which I can find a designer wedding dress?

Wedding gown prices vary by designer collection, fabric and design details. At Best for Bride, new designer wedding gowns are priced at $500 and upwards. However, you can also find dresses at lower prices in our clearance and sale section. Since these dresses are from previous seasons, their prices may be slashed by up to 80%.

2. Where can I find budget-friendly designer bridal gowns?

The best place to find affordable but authentic designer wedding gowns is at a professional wedding gown store dealing in a variety of designer collections. This will give you plenty of options to explore and find a gown that fits your vision and budget. If you are on a limited budget, you can consider renting a designer wedding dress. Best for Bride, Hamilton has designer dress collections like Mori Lee, Sophia Tolli, Jasmine and San Pareil. We also have a clearance section with inexpensive designer wedding dresses from the same collections.

3. How do I find the best place to buy my bridal gown?

Wedding gown shopping is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for brides and is best delivered by established bridal stores. Their experienced bridal consultants are better equipped to give you positive and productive shopping experience. Shopping at such stores will also help you get the best price and your order will be handled with professionalism. Ask your friends and family for recommendations or find these bridal stores based on customer reviews on the internet.

4. How long before the wedding should I start dress shopping?

Bridal dress shopping is a detailed and time-consuming task. Once you find the perfect wedding dress and place your order, it will take several months for the manufacturer to deliver your order. Once the gown arrives, you will need another month for alterations. So, plan your shopping at least six to nine months before the wedding. This will allow you to complete the entire task at a relaxed pace.

5. Who should I bring with me to my wedding shopping appointment?

Although there are no restrictions on the number of people who can accompany you, it is best to limit your entourage for your own benefit. The best decisions are made when there are fewer people. So, limit your group to two or three close family members or friends who can positively contribute to your decision-making process. Only invite people who share your taste in fashion and have your best interests at heart.

6. Do I need to make an appointment before I go bridal gown shopping?

At Best for Bride, Hamilton, we prefer that brides visit us by appointment. When you book your appointment in advance, we will assign a dedicated staff member to your group for the duration of your visit. We can also arrange for specific dresses that you wish to try on, if you inform us when you book your appointment. Although we accommodate walk-ins as well, it is easier for us and beneficial for you if you visit by prior appointment.

7. Do wedding gowns go on sale?

Most wedding gowns are made-to-order. Nonetheless, wedding dress chains like Best for Bride have occasional sales when prices on wedding gowns are slashed. You can contact our team to find out when the next sale is scheduled. Additionally, we also have a clearance section consisting of gowns from previous seasons. Unused gowns are moved into this section when make space for new collections. However, these dresses are limited in number and in selected sizes only.

8. When is the best time of year to buy my bridal dress?

The best time to buy your wedding gown is six to nine months before the wedding day. This will allow you to explore your options at a relaxed pace, find the right gown, place your order and have it altered before the wedding day. However, if you wish to snag a designer wedding gown at a discounted price, be on the lookout for end-of-season sales when gown prices are considerably slashed.

9. What should I do before I go bridal dress shopping?

Wedding dress shopping is time-consuming and tedious unless approached with proper planning. Go shopping at least six to nine months before the wedding. However, before that, fix your wedding dress budget and do your research. Find a place where you can shop within a budget. Book your appointment and invite the people you want to take along. Finally, decide what features you want in your bridal gown. Your consultant will be able to help you better if you share this information.

10. How do I know whether a gown will look good on me if the sample size is different?

Unfortunately, it is impossible to stock sample dresses in all sizes. Therefore, the boutique you visit may not have samples in your exact size. However, this should not be a concern. If the sample size is small, your consultant will use extenders to help you understand how it would look on you. If the dress is big, they will use clips to pin it to look like it would in the right size. This should help you piece together the final look and get an accurate idea. You can also find how the dress would drape from the original designer pictures.

11. Can a bridal consultant help me even if I do not know anything about wedding dresses?

Yes, a bridal consultant can help you if you are clueless about wedding dress shopping. Experienced bridal consultants can identify gowns that flatter different body types. They can also make accurate suggestions based on the theme and style of the wedding. So, if you are unsure of where to begin, simply share your wedding theme with our team and tell us how you wish to look like on your wedding day. With these details, we can show you your best options and help you find the dress of your dreams.
