    Host: How can I find great reception sites?

    Kay Williams: Well, you can locate great reception sites through your local paper, gazettes. For example, if you live in Washington D.


    , The Washington Post. You can look in back of those, and you can see all the sites that are available in your area. Okay. You can search by your zip code online. You can go in there, put down, Overton, Maryland, Greenbelt, Maryland, with its zip code, and search by that way. You could also search by referrals. In fact, referral is the best way to do it, because you know the person has been there before, and they have given you these numbers, and you can call them. You can actually go there and see it, that you know that that is what you want, that if you don't see it, you can't see it, but they give you a number, then it's not good. You have to know by referral, that's the first key. Have you used it before? Have you been there before? Can I come and see it? Is it going to be good for my guests? Is it going to be closed to where I am going to get married? This is how you find a reception hall. You have to do a detail search through your local vendors first, and then go outside, and go to people you know.
