You have all the details in place for the perfect wedding. Now, you need to plan for your wedding reception. Think about what you want to serve and how you want it served. For example, you might think about serving champagne cocktails and canapés for thirty minutes upon your guests’ arrival. You can choose colour-themed cocktails and a variety of cold and hot delicious canapés.
Foods and Drinks
This introduction to your reception might be followed by a three-course meal, which each guest can savour via a la carte service. Make sure you include unlimited beverages in the form of beer, wine, soft drinks, sparkling water, juices, and champagne. Coffee and tea can be served as well.
If you hold the reception outside, you might consider holding it in a garden. Maybe you want to include a Rolls Royce transfer for you and your better half after the reception. Do you or your guests have special dietary requirements? Then make sure your meal covers such preferences as vegetarian, diabetic, or gluten-free foods.
An Ideal Venue for Taking Pictures
If you hold your reception in a garden venue, this is the ideal place for a picture-taking session. At wedding receptions in Sydney, flowers, when featured inside, are often placed throughout the foyers. Included in a wedding reception venue’s offerings are the services of a head steward and waiters too.
You also need to plan your linen and cutlery choices. Guest table decorations might include five-arm silver candelabras featuring tea lights, chair covers with satin bows, and your choice of gold, ivory, silver, or black sashes. Include vintage skirting as well.
Make a Checklist
To organise the reception, make sure you include a checklist of what you want in the way of foods, beverages, table decorations, and musical entertainment. You also have to think about who you want to use for your photography, car hire, and floral needs. Some wedding venues offer packages that include these services in the cost. Other venues provide DJ entertainment. That way, you can also plan the songs that will be played during your reception. In addition, some venues also provide the wedding cake as well. If you wish to retain an MC, that can be done too.
Types of Foods That Are Served
When it comes to meal planning, you can select from such foods as pasta, soup, and chilled oysters for each table. Besides the table decorations, you can also include such items as silk flower arrangements and red carpeting as well as a signing table.
Some people add a photo booth at their reception. That way, guests can take unlimited pictures, adding to the specialness of the day. Maybe you want to include fireworks too, as they are one extra amenity that adds the WOW factor to any wedding ceremony and reception event. The fireworks can be used for grand entrances or a grand exit. Add to that Tiffany-styled chairs and rosette tablecloths in silver or white, and you have all the accoutrements needed for a special wedding day.
