I don't know any place like that in Belgium. Places where wedding
receptions take place typically also allow for other parties such as
wedding anniversaries, etc. Actually any gathering where food and drinks
are involved. They are called "feestzaal" (party room) in Dutch. I would
not use the tag wedding_reception for those.
 I need a more general tag for those places.

As a non-native speaker, "wedding_reception" sounds more for the event, not
for the room in which the event takes place. Am I mistaken on this ?

Whenever the church has a dedicated room for gatherings (typically used
after funerals, not s much for weddings) it is called a "parochiezaal"
(parish room). Can't use this tag for them I guess.

I would love to see a general tag for a place that is available for rent
and where drinks and foods are served. The menu is typically agreed upon
