The Perfect Wedding Reception Venue

A couple of months ago, my younger sister got married in a beautiful ceremony at her church. Our father has pastored this rural, evangelical church for the past twenty-nine years. Therefore, this special place to both of us was the obvious right venue to have her wedding at. After the wedding ceremony, my parents hosted a reception in the church’s activity building. My sister even decorated this large building herself. Have you picked a venue for your wedding, but don’t know where to have your reception at? When looking for the right place to have this special event, consider your personality and the personality of your future mate. For instance, if you’re cowboy or a cowgirl, you probably wouldn’t enjoy a wedding reception at an upscale country club in town. On this blog, you will discover the best places to host a wedding reception at.

Five Mistakes You're Making When Buying Concert Tickets That Are Driving Up The Price

by Virgil Woods

Seeing a favorite music group performing live in concert is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. For this reason, many people think it necessarily has to be expensive.

However, the truth is that you can get affordable concert tickets for even internationally renowned groups if you know what you're doing. The following are five concert ticket-buying mistakes you could be making that are unnecessarily making your concert-going ambitions unaffordable:

You're being too picky about the seats.

A lot of concert attendees go out of their way to get a certain seat and find out that they would have been better off elsewhere. 

When it comes to seeing a beloved group in concert, just being there is really a lot bigger deal than where you're sitting. Concert tickets vary enormously in terms of price, but often the experience of being there is fairly similar regardless of where you're sitting.

"Lawn seats" might sound like they're so far away that you won't feel like you're part of the experience, but they could be just what you're looking for depending on the venue.

You're buying too soon.

Event tickets are often more expensive when they first go on sale than they are after a few weeks have passed. Don't assume that tickets will sell out right away, especially if you're seeing the concert in a smaller city or in a place where there isn't a huge concentration of fans.

Be patient about buying a ticket and don't insist on being able to show off your tickets right after they go up for sale.

You're using only one site.

If you're buying tickets online, you need to shop around to get the best deal. Different online ticket sites will have different deals with the venue that result in varying prices for you.

Compare sites and buy where the price is lowest to avoid wasting money on a ticket you could have gotten cheaper elsewhere.

You're buying straight from the box office.

A lot of people make the assumption that a ticket is cheapest right from the box office or the venue website. However, this isn't necessarily true.

Online ticket sites often have special deals with venues because they buy in bulk. This can carry over to lower prices for their customers, so make sure you check out both the venue and independent ticket selling sites before you buy. 

You're not putting enough time into it.

Like any purchase, a concert ticket purchase will result in the best deal if you put time into the search. Try not only different sites, but also different dates and different cities if possible to find the lowest prices.
