“Choosing a venue for your Jewish wedding or bar/bat mitzvah is all about your budget, what services they provide and how it fits in with the style and theme of the kind of guests that you want to invite.
In order to gain some Jewish flavour you may wish to visit a jewish wedding or other simcha which can be arranged through a caterer or any management team. They will have to arrange a visit at their convenience. This will give you a good idea as to how a function runs rather than looking at an empty hall.
Its also important to make sure the wedding venue can allow an outside caterer.
Numbers are very important and also allow more space if there is a mechitsah (which is often put up at orthodox Jewish weddings to segregate men and women during any public event).
Wedding venues can be negotiated on price by having the simcha take place on a weekday rather than weekend.
