Please correct this grammatically
1) We are not getting a wedding hall ( hall = banquet) all wedding halls are booked
2) They think is very easy to get a wedding banquet people book them 9 to 10 months in advance
3) Once her school resumes she will be again busy with her school work ( can we also say when her school starts)

1 and 2) A banquet is not a hall. A banquet is a feast, a big meal. The place you hold a banquet can be called a "banqueting hall".

3) Once her school resumes/restarts/goes back, she will again be busy with her schoolwork.

1) In the U.S. the terms "banquet hall" and "wedding hall" are OK and used routinely. 2) The term "wedding banquet" would be considered to be the food and beverages served at a reception following the wedding. 3) "School starts" is OK but I think "when classes resume" would be better than "when school resumes".
