Wedding reception venue choices
When planning your Fiji wedding there is a lot of choice on offer when it comes to selecting the right wedding reception venue.
Proximity to the ceremony venue
For the comfort of your guests we recommend keeping the travelling distance between the ceremony location and reception venue to under half an hour.
Transportation from the ceremony and reception
If the ceremony and reception venues are apart, the provision of transportation should be supplied, particularly if you have older guests and small children in attendance. Consider the tropical heat and the fact that some guests may be wearing heels.
The number of guests attending will determine the size of the venue required. We can advise what resorts offer facilities to cater to the size of your wedding – whether it’s large, small or just a few friends and family members.
Under the stars, land or sea?
Some resorts offer reception dining under the stars on the beachfront. Very romantic with the sound of waves lapping the shore serenading your guests.
